“Halloween’s coming, skeletons will be after YOU!” I hope you know the song I’m referencing. Preschool? Anyone? Ok. It’s Halloween prep around here, and I wanted to share some of our spooky ideas that are major players in our get-together with close family and friends. Eek! Can’t wait.
This black bean soup. It’s everything. Not only is it insanely delicious and healthy, but, I cook it up in a big black pot and totally pretend I’m a witch.
Essie’s Devils advocate, every year.
What are your kids dressing up as this year? B has picked out this frog costume. So random, but it totally works on him. L has reached the age where he’s too cool to actually dress up, so you basically take your sports jersey and make it scary. Obviously I nominated M to handle that.
Spider cookies are oh so scary. And oh so delicious.
It is so rainy and cold every. single. year. Hoping this year is different but if not, these rain boots are ready to go.
Spooky napkins are a must.
DYING over these bat socks. This is as far as I go in terms of dressing up because I am a boring person. Ordered.
I’ve mentioned this Bogle Phantom wine before on the blog as one of our favs. Perfect for a spooky night!
And going along with the wine… obviously you need these red cups, you know, for your own little treat while you’re chasing little goblins all over the neighborhood in the freezing cold.
Good luck to all parents on the scariest night of the year – that is, until the next day. Because nothing is scarier than kids who are hungover on sugar. Nothing.
What are some of your family’s must-have and must-do traditions for Halloween? Tell me all about it in a comment below!
