Halloween

At-home Halloween — on it! We're going all-in (but low-key) w/ DIY kids' activities, games & a backyard party for a fun family fest. 10 how-to steps.
Scotti has talked about it. Shana has talked about it. I think it's been pretty well-established that Halloween is going to look...a little different this year. Maybe a lot different, depending on where you live. In our neighborhood, there's been some discussion around people putting tables at the end of their driveways and monitoring the kids from lawn chairs...
Our kids LOVE Halloween decorations, which are more about the door or front porch. Spiders & cobwebs from Etsy, Target & Amazon — inside.
My kids get super-excited about Halloween, like...crazy excited. They start planning costumes months in advance. Of course they also do that kid thing and change their minds at the very last minute, and we're up all night on Halloween eve, remaking something that's newly inspired their hearts. But still. Their excitement is palpable. My kids also LOVE to decorate the...
It's At-Home Halloween 2020 for these kids & toddlers. We found these fun Halloween crafts & decorations at Target — check out the pumpkins!
Greenlea's favorite holiday is Halloween. She LOVES the decorations, the scary movies (I mean more like Halloweentown and Curious George, less like Nightmare on Elm Street), the costumes and especially the candy. She LOVES the candy. So when I told her there might not be any trick-or-treating this year (there won't be), she panicked. "What about a Halloween...
We've found Halloween ornamentation that gives a chic, elegant nod to the dark & spooky -- think of it as the Black Swan of Fall decorations.
Looking for something a little more understated than the typical Halloween decor? Us, too. Fall decorations are a must, but that Halloween aesthetic can feel so temporary. So we've rounded up some Halloween ornamentation that simply gives a chic, elegant nod to the dark and spooky -- think of it as the Black Swan of Halloween trimmings. And while bright...
There's no shame in our family-matching game, so Care Bear costumes for the whole fam on Halloween are on point. They keep us warm + they're cute & comfy.
There is absolutely no shame in my family-matching game. Give me matching pjs, matching dresses, matching coats (omg Greenlea and I need these—little girl sizes here) . . . allll the things. Fortunately, I've been blessed with a husband who loves matching as much as I do tolerates my extreme love of matching and doesn't take himself too seriously....
Audrey Hepburn? Witch? Vampire Victim? Vague-Cat-Like-Animal....All these last-minute Halloween costumes are possible...just add a Little Black Dress. DONE.
This post has been updated for 2019 (because LBD's are forever in style...)  My friend called the other day. Halloween was less than a week away, and she didn’t plan on getting a costume...until she found out the other Moms in her playgroup would be dressing up  She wanted to know if wearing black and orange socks would be OK....
For us moms, Halloween goes down like this: we plan for MONTHS, & the whole fam is perfectly coordinated OR...we hack a costume together day-of. See ours.
The way we see it, Halloween always goes one of two ways... 1. You've been planning for MONTHS, and you, your spouse, your children, and any pets are perfectly coordinated — no detail has been spared and you're literally unrecognizable.  OR... 2. You take a day-of visit to the good ol' costume / play-pretend box and just make. it. work. Amazon-Priming stuff...
I remember the days before my little guys had their own opinion on clothes.   Glory days, you guys.  Those were the glory days.  And there was nothing more glorious (from a sartorial perspective) than Halloween.   My personal favorite was probably Raines' old owl costume, the one and only time I've ever DIY'd anything.  Or maybe the crying chicken (Pax's...
If ever one needed to make a case for nostalgia, these three books are hard to beat. 1.  There's a Nightmare in My Closet I remember reading this book as a child, and after searching (and searching AND SEARCHING) for something to calm fearful little Pax, I came across this old favorite again.  From the desperately brave stance of a boy making a...
I love pretend play and dress-up, but I'm not a big Halloween fan.  I mean sure...if babies are involved, I'm ALL in.  I dressed R up as a bee, and remember Pax the chicken?  Yeah - that's my kind of Halloween dress-up.  But as soon as they get old enough to form their own opinions, I find myself trying...
