So, after the week full of Halloween posts last week, it probably comes as no surprise that we are in full Halloween decorating & prep mode here at the Mom Endeavors’ house! Last year was the first year I had decorated for Halloween since having kids and it was so much fun. We got a few new decorations last year from Kmart, which has such a surprisingly great Halloween section. So, since there’s a store right near our house, we went shopping & snagged just a few more things for this year. The boys have such fun looking at everything. They’re a bit unsure of a few of the more scary stuff, but overall they think it’s pretty fun! I tend to stick to the more spooky creature type stuff (bats, spiders, etc.). And, I found some great new stuff to add to our collection! Here’s a peek at our purchases: I love the creepy black crow and the skull! They should fit in nicely with the rest of our decor. Now, I just need to finish getting everything setup! I’d better hurry since it’s now already the second week of October. Eek!
Of course, the other big part of getting ready for Halloween revolves around costumes. Kmart also a fun online application this year that can help you figure out & visualize what kind of costume everyone wants to do! The boys had a lot of fun looking at the Kmart Kreator and all the various costume theme ideas. There are many to choose like Superhero, Princess, Fairy, Pirate, Witch, Vampire, Zombie, TV/Movie Character, Video Game Character, Scary, Animals, Food & Beverage, and more! It probably comes as no surprise that the boys were drawn to some of the TV/Movie Characters and Superhero characters. Here were their favorites: Notice the Captain America shield on Darth Vader?! Lol! Big Brother thought it was hilarious to accessorize some of the characters with additional items! You can select various wigs, weapons, and other accessories to help plan the perfect costume. There were lots of great ideas, but ultimately, this year Star Wars gets the win. So, stay tuned for lots of family costume details! 🙂
