Halloween is almost upon us, and I have to say again and again how fun it is with kids. I loved it as a kid. I loved it in college when I could be JEM & The Holograms with my friends, and I even loved it as a young adult, when I repeated my Supergirl and Snow White costumes at least a half dozen times. Now I have kids, though, and they’re just beginning to figure this amazing Spooktacular holiday out. Candy. Costumes. Celebrations. Staying up late. People giving you candy. Parades. Awesome.
We usually throw costumes together at odd paces. Cassidy has been known to create insane costumes in only six days. On the other hand, we once planned our Halloween costumes months in advance! Sometimes I don’t plan until the day of Halloween, but getting ready with Scarlet and Des is so infectious and fun, that I see no other way around it. I will always dress up for Halloween. And I will always help plan and support their costumes. The process is so unbelievably part of the fun:
Scarlet has gotten into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles lately, but she wasn’t sure how to go about being a female one. I told her the sky is the limit, but a fun trip to Party City showed us just how many options are in there!
It was so much fun to see their visions and Halloween dreams come to life. I was so impressed with the selection of costumes at Party City. I just picked out my costume and size and told the front desk, and they got Des’ costume for me.
I loved seeing how Scarlet turned herself into a female Ninja Turtle – a Ninja Turtle-ette, if you will. And it was fun to see Des, at only three, trying to get into character as a turtle and think about what they might do. Obviously he wasn’t entirely sure, but he was combining his knowledge of real turtles, with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and that’s pretty cool!
