Growing up, my mom LOVED to decorate for the holidays. It was always something to look forward to. It was magical and fun. And now that the nest is empty, my parents don't decorate as big or elaborate as they used too, which means..she has passed down some of the decorations to us kids! Hello free holiday decor!
I was so excited to continue this tradition, of getting the house all festive for the approaching holiday. Dominic is at such a fun age this year, as soon as he saw all the decorations his face light up like a Christmas tree!
Here are a couple of our doorknob hangers. : )
And lastly, Mr. Bones. Our friendly movable skeleton.
Dominic loves posing him.
*I understand some people don't participate in Halloween. We aren't one of them. We LOVE Halloween and yes we are going to let our boys have fun with the holiday. Seriously, they are only kids once, so don't spoil the magic, right?! We see it as a fun time to pretend and nothing else.*
Now for the fun part, costumes! I really wanted the boys to be something fun together as a theme. (Like, Mario & Luigi.) However, Dominic's a little guy and they are in the same size section, so we really couldn't find anything that worked well. Oh well, they're spared for another year. ;)
So this year, Dominic is going to be a Dinosaur (It's really a dragon..but it's a dinosaur to us! Ha.) And Giovanni is going to be a puppy dog! I'm pretty sure he's the cutest puppy dog ever! The costume is HUGE but we
This year we plan to make some fun spooky treats, head out "trick-or-treating" to the grandparents house for some fun pictures, and then go to a local churches' Fall festival, since the boys are too little to actually go trick-or-treating.
What are your plans?
