How was your Halloween? Well, we had a fantastic day yesterday, my two kids did have a fun day as they expected it to be.
Our Halloween started out with carving our pumpkin as this seemed to be a big tradition. I have not heard yet of a pumpkin patch nearby where we live, so we just bought our pumpkins in our local supermarket which were rather cheap anyway. It was since the morning that my two little kids persistently bugged me about carving the pumpkin. I suppose, they’re as enthusiastic with it so as the trick or treat that was planned for night time. It’s just unbelievably crazy how they got so thrilled with this particular event of the year. Is it because my two kids are the right age for it? or Is it because Halloween seemed widely commercialized? that you can’t escape from joining in with the celebration.
Pumpkins were all carved and looking funnily spooky, thanks to YouTube for the inspiration. I had also prepared assorted sweeties for the trick-or-treaters who knocked on the our door later that night.
After our dinner, we had a quick shower and then got dressed for the most awaited TRICK or TREAT… I think Halloween won’t be complete without trick or treat. Every kids and adults alike just loved the entertainment that comes along with it, who doesn’t anyway?
For this year, I’ve chosen Batman for Reimer and Batgirl for Ruby. I thought the matching outfit looked adorable when I first saw it. I was glad I did as they looked so cute on it too. Aren’t they?
Before we finally headed out around the scheme and started our Trick or Treating, we put out our carved pumpkins first which we had proudly done earlier. We placed tea light candles inside it and positioned it on our driveway to show our festive mood.
So we started our trick or treating, wohoooo! We knocked on a few doors of the neighbors, where we also came across other kids and adults trick or treating too like what we did, it was so much fun. It was also amusing to see how other kids and adults too got dressed. Some were spooky, some were hilarious, some were adventurous while others were just cute like my two kids, whom I can’t take my eyes off them.
Here’s a few photos of our Halloween escapade last night:
As we finished going through the entire scheme, we went home with buckets full and heavy with assorted sweeties inside. Both my kids were so pleased and over the moon with what they’ve got… it’s as if they had been deprived of eating sweeties all their lives, just ridiculous! When we got home, they both sat in the sofa digging what’s inside their respective buckets thinking they’ve got to eat them all before going to bed, absolutely not!
Overall, it was a fabulous day especially for the kids, having to experience Trick or Treat again. Even better as the weather was cooperating, it was something we had hoped for, it was dry and warm. We didn’t even need to put on our jackets despite being outdoor which would have really spoiled the sense of dressing up.
However, with outdoor activities such as Trick or Treat, bad weather conditions can’t be avoided. Being wet and soaked in the rain will just ruin the pleasure that the kids are meant to have in every activity in place. Fortunately, with bothersome moments like this brought by the weather, comes also the convenience of online shopping which is just as easy as pressing a button of your keyboard.
Children’s Waterproof Over Trousers’ is a popular online shop for children’s waterproof clothing at a relatively low and affordable prices. Dry Kids was born to cater the needs of the kids’ love and passion for outdoor fun whatever the weather and whatever they fancy to play whether jumping on puddles or splashing water in the middle of the rain. Being a mum, I know exactly how kids are attracted to playing with water and how messy and soggy it can bring afterwards. Nonetheless, Dry Kids have all the solutions to this dilemma.
Best of all, Dry Kids offers Rain and Outerwear, All In One, Jackets, Over Trousers, Jacket and Trouser Sets which are available in wide range of sizes from age 1 – 12 years old.
