Halloween is near!

Carving pumpkins.  Picking out a cute costume.  Sneaking some of your child's candy.  Is there anything better than Halloween when you're a mom?

This will be my first Halloween with two kids, which means that for the first time, I get to coordinate costumes!  I won't even attempt to hide my excitement.

Emma absolutely loves the movie "Frozen" so choosing a theme this year was easy.  Emma will go as Elsa, while Baby Sage will be Olaf.  Oh, he is going to make the cutest snowman!

I actually found a lady in Illinois to make Emma's costume.  The only issue was getting a 2-year old to sit still so that I could take measurements.  So if it isn't an absolute perfect fit, you'll know why.

This will be Emma's first year to go trick-or-treating.  Last year, we felt she was still too young (even though she had the most adorable little pumpkin costume!).  We will probably take her to visit a few of our favorite neighbors within walking distance.  Then it's off to G-Daddy and AA's house.  You know grandparents always have the good stuff!

I love Halloween and am looking forward to a fun night.  I'm anxious to see how Emma does trick-or-treating.  And of course, I'll be taking lots of pics of the kids and their coordinating costumes.

What costume did your child (or you) pick for Halloween this year?  Will they be trick-or-treating?

Whatever you have planned, most of all be safe.  And Happy Halloween from Cloud 9, Elsa, and Olaf.
