Ten on Tuesday this week is 10 Ways to Enjoy Halloween!
I'm more into the Fall/Harvest stuff than the Halloween stuff but in keeping with the theme, here goes:
1- carving pumpkins for jack-o-lanterns (pictures to be posted)
2- get a chance to wear my pink wig. Though I should try pulling it off on other days of the year, just for the heck of it. :)
3- bake cupcakes and cookies for my daughter to decorate.
4- eating candy (I always go through the kids candy and separate their favorites, they can keep what can fit in a sandwich baggie, some may not make it there though!) :)
5- Halloween costume parades at school, big around here.
6- costume parties and dances, also big this year, it seems.
7- Getting dressed up,
8- painting faces, and..
9- trick or treating, of course!!
10- Start Christmas shopping (LOVE!)
My daughter's favorite fairy tale is Little Red Riding Hood and we have been reading it in both English and Spanish. She had planned to be a butterfly for trick or treating and a witch for handing out candy later on in the night, until we were at the store and she screamed (a good one!) and saw IT! So this year for Halloween she has decided to be Caperucita Roja. The oldest won't decide. He plays this game every year, never deciding which costume he wants until it's time to actually trick or treat and then he sends me scrambling! Any suggestions, maybe we can actually be prepared this year?!?!?!
