Halloween

imagesHalloween is just around the corner! Are you excited?? We managed to get the house looking spooky a few weeks ago when we had some free time. The kids love having the house look a little spooky.

Then we are going to head to a local farm who has a huge pumpkin patch to get some pumpkins so we can carve them before Halloween. The local farm is really great and really embraces Halloween. They have pumpkins of all sizes along with wheelbarrows to help you carry them. They also have a petting zoo, hay tower, small kid-friendly corn maze, and a store where they sell produce that they’ve grown along with locally raised beefalo. I’ve never tried beefalo, but I plan on picking some up when we visit the farm. It is kind of neat too because they offer it in bulk quantities. It’d be so nice to have a stock of meat in the freezer to use throughout the year.

The kids are excited about their costumes. My daughter is going to be a fairy & my son wants to be something scary. This is the first year he can wear a mask to school and he is so excited about this! I’m sure he will find an awesome costume that will end up scaring his sister too.

What types of traditions do you have for Halloween? What are you dressing up as?
