Happy hit up your neighbors for candy day!

Halloween houseWe love Halloween at our place! We make our own costumes (mostly), we decorate the house, we carve at least 10 pumpkins – I’ll post pics of those later, and all four of us dress up.

This year hubs will have a zipper on his face, opening up his flesh to reveal the tissue beneath. Son will be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle – the blue one. Daughter will be… wait for it…. a princess. I will also be a princess because I have to be exactly what my little girl is, and sadly, a zombie princess is not acceptable 😦

One of our greatest traditions is the candy collection. From our first family Halloween, we have taught our children the most important lesson of all… that they are out there collecting candy for the whole family! And they are determined to collect as much candy as possible so that it lasts our family all year long. They take their responsibility seriously.

About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.

  1. ha! That’s good delegation on your part. Looking forward to pictures. Happy Sugar Buzz!

  2. Our town changed it to Thursday night and over a football game, so our ” stash” was drastically lower this year! Then my oldest made a huge announcement… I was so upset I blogged about it to vent… Ugh!

    The key is in convincing the children that “no, they can’t go tomorrow and ask the neighbors for candy too. Only once a year.”

  4. I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award 🙂
