Happy Friday Laundry Roommates. It’s time once again to list off five things in no particular order.
I know it is only the 27th, but Halloween is already over for me and my family. Kinda sucks but here is a list with some of the highs and lows of my favorite holiday. Oh, and the explanation to why it’s already over.
1. Trick or Treating
Where I live in Pennsylvania, we have trick or treating on the last Tuesday of the last full week of the month. This year it was on the 24th, a whole week before Halloween. Sure, the kids had fun but for me it’s missing some of the magic of when I was a kid and only trick or treated on Halloween. Don’t know why they do it, don’t really care because no reason would make sense to me.
One of the things my town does is have a big Halloween parade. Growing up, the town I lived in had parades but nothing this big (like 2 hours long big). Its a big deal and fun but very stressful because you need to stake your claim to a sitting area like 36 hours ahead of time. But it was loads of fun and the kids got a lot of candy.
Getting back to the trick or treating…like I mentioned before my kids wanted different costumes than the ones we got for Disney World. At Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween we went as the characters from Inside Out. For trick or treating my son wanted to be a fireman with a “real” helmet and my daughter wanted to be Pikachu. I steered her away from a weird one with a horrible plastic mask, so she chose a pretty Pikachu dress with a tail and Pikachu cap.
Ok, Candy is evil in the hands of a 2 1/2 and 5 year old. ’nuff said.
5. Stranger Things: Season 2
I’m already on the 4th episode and it does not disappoint. Makes me so happy!!
I Have a couple more Halloween traditions I like to do, but I’ll try to talk about those later. Until then, I hope everyone has a great Halloween Weekend!!!!!!!
