I’ve never been into Halloween. Like ever. I’m still not a huge fan. However, this year [by the persistent encouragement of a friend- thanks Wanda] we went all out……& laughed all day. We had so much fun.
And a funny little story regarding Ezra’s consume…..
Not sure where or how he heard about a Jack-O-Lantern, but he had been talking about it since September. He wanted to be a “Jack-O-Lantern for Halloween.”
I’ll be honest….I was convinced he’d forget about it…..you know, so I could dress him up as what I wanted to.Easily the best way to take your Halloween costume to the next level is to buy some spooky contacts as these make you look so much scarier and makes your costume look so much more real.
Last week, my friend urged me to dress Ezra up as the Jack-O-Lantern.
“Just let him be a Jack-O-Lantern. He’ll love it.” said Wanda.
And so I did.
The only one I could find was a size 1-2, rather than the size 3-4 he should wear. I bought it anyway.
Ezra LOVED his costume. And you know what? I did too.
It’s not even about the costume, but the joy on his face….all day [he was experiencing a sugar overdose in this photo. HA!] As hard as it is sometimes to let our kids make their own decisions….it’s a good thing. I love this little Jack-O-Lantern and my idea would NOT have topped this.
These are the days….& the best of memories.
