to be or not to be...

It seems to be Halloween week here on three girls three cities! You know you're a mom when the costume decisions you're facing are about fairies, or ballerinas, or grasshoppers (Sally) and Harry Potter, or The Dude, or Mickey Mouse (Graham). For the record, its a flower star sparkle fairy for Sally and Potter for Graham. Now that the selection has been made, we've moved on to the planning and execution stages. I will be DIY-ing a tulle fairy skirt (I'll post pics, obvi) and a sparkle star wand, along with a Gryffindor tie and a for-pictures-only wizard wand (Graham cannot be trusted with pokey objects - but...he made need it for self-defense against the sparkle star wand).

I'll pop on one of two headbands - cat ears or Minnie Mouse and do make-up accordingly and call it a costume. Last year, we had a Halloween costume birthday party for Graham, it was so fun to see the costumes that everyone came up with. There's nothing as fun as a Halloween party. It is by far my favorite occasion to decorate for.

Speaking of which, how soon in October do you decorate for Halloween? I wait until we're two weeks out, because I also love fall decorations and don't want to have to switch them out so soon after having put them up (on the autumnal equinox).

What does your Halloween look like? Trick or treating? A big friends costume party? Eating chili, watching Hocus Pocus, and sipping hot cocoa while passing out candy?
