Twas the Friday before Halloween: Get your inner Nerd on

Twas the Friday before Halloween and all was a murk. Creatures were stirring and starting to lurk. The children were excited about soon to be treats, while grown ups were exhausted among other feats. Coffee was needed to stop a zombie like trance, while this mama resists doing the boogieman dance. Skeleton shirts and fun pumpkin socks galore...soon bells will be ringing as we go door to door. If this tired mama can make it through the next few days, she'll be happy to function past the post Halloween craze. A few more projects and this holiday is a wrap....then it will be time for a long, long nap.

Happy Friday before Halloween lovelies. This is the homemade costume the boy will be wearing to this weekends annual Halloween carnival. Ribbons for suspenders, an old pair of jeans. Sunglasses with the lens popped out and spray painted black...all lends itself to creating the perfect no-cost, play- friendly carnival costume.

Power to the apple people, power to the apple. 
 And for those wondering why this costumes fits my son so well...homeboy started busting out and dancing to Psy during his photo shoot. True story. I hate to admit that this is quite typical when I ask the boy to take a picture or to just simply stand still. I sort of secretly love that about his crazy, happy spirit.

Oh you know you want to bust a move too....I hope you all have a great weekend.

What are your kiddos going to be this Halloween? Olly has a surprise costume in store for the big night. Can't wait to share next week on our Halloween recap. See y'all on Monday with a spider cake treat!

Also a HUGE congrats to Rory for winning the amazing All You Frightfully Fun Halloween Book.
