halloween festivities


For the perfect spooky start to the week, we took a trip to the cemetery next to which my mom grew up. The graves are so old and my mom told us stories about how they ran around in there as kids.

Little N was really into Halloween this year. She insisted on switching her costume from Pippi Longstocking to something scary. Wednesday Addams was the easiest costume we've ever put together. We already had the dress which is more like a long tunic now. I quickly added the white felt collar and cuffs, and we bought a black witch wig to braid. Staying in character very well, she was transformed and was quite the hit at school.

She also insisted on the theme dinner- mummy dogs and ghost bananas both found on Pinterest. This is my kind of holiday. And my kind of girl.
