It was bound to happen, at one point or another. And friends, the time has come.
Halloween is literally the most important thing to my boys, like, ever.
They talk about it incessantly. They watch You Tube videos of everything spooky and scary and creepy crawly. They discuss at length the merits of a Captain America costume vs. a Grim Reaper costume. Often, the discussions escalate to full-blown brawls as they defend the honour of the bestest costume ever.
(Truthfully, the “bestest costume ever” will be the one that is $39.99 or less.)
Hence, it dawned on me just a few short weeks ago: this Halloween, I will have to make a frightfully good effort. Because in addition to wearing a sick costume (my husband’s words, not mine) they’re at that age where they can describe cool decorations, tricked out bags, spooktacular treats.
Yes folks, it’s time to channel my inner Martha Stewart, and kick things up a notch.
We’ve already purchased an entire set of graveyard decorations, complete with the ghoulish sounds and menacing cackles. Fluorescent treat bags lie in wait. And I’ve found the perfect spooky recipes to try for Halloween night!
In case you’re wondering, those are COFFIN CRISP Mummies. Ha ha ha! Clever, right? …
