Halloween Fun--and a drawing!

I love Halloween! Love, love, love it. Dressing up is my favorite thing in the world. In years past, I've sewn costumes for each of my kiddos. Lately, however, we've gotten into doing a family "theme". Last year we were all Zombies. Not really nice to do to your 14 month old, but it was pretty funny. This year, we've decided to be characters from Greek Mythology. Some white sheets, gold jewelry and we're set, right?

In light of my inspired costume idea, we are holding a costume contest here at the store on October 30th from 2-4pm. There are four age categories, and each winner gets a $10 gift card to spend at the store! Popcorn, face painting...the usual fun will ensue.

So what are your kiddos going to be for Halloween? Post it here and I'll draw for another $10 gift card! Pass it to your friends, post it on Facebook, you know the drill. For everyone who leaves me a comment here, you get entered in the drawing. And if you get a friend to comment and they say you sent them, voila! You get entered again.

Keep in mind you have to be able to pick the gift card up locally and use it IN the store.

Let the fun begin!

  12. Lil will be a butterfly. Or maybe a butterfly princess. It will depend on what type of headgear I come up with to complete the outfit.
