Halloween Weekend

Our whole Halloween weekend was actually lovely! After carving the pumpkins and decorating the house on Friday, our actual Halloween celebrations on Saturday turned out completely unexpected. We were just getting ready for some shopping, when my cousin called. After a short conversation on the phone we had decided to have a little meet up in our house. The little meet up has turned into 8 adults and 6 children at our place. 😀

So we just went for a quick grocery shopping and as soon as we got back home, we started to prepare with some snacks and drinks. After seeing spooky decorated houses in our area we were in 100% in the Halloween mood, all very excited!

Luka went to the party in our neighbours house next door, dressed up as a skeleton, we dressed Daniella as a little witch (even though she was still insisting she was a princess Anna). Edward put an eye-liner on to make some dark circles under his eyes and fun has begun. 🙂

There were sooooo many trick-or-treaters knocking on our door on Halloween night!!! We had a lot of sweets at the beginning, but later we run out of them and started giving pretty much everything we had – biscuits, fruits, crisps… I suggested Edward to learn some trick instead, but he wasn’t too keen on the idea. 🙂

After our guests arrived, the whole evening was actually really lovely. Lots of noise, lots of mess, but so worth it. I actually realised how much I missed escaping from my mummy duties for an hour or so. I need to at least start going to some mummies meet ups or something to change my everyday routine slightly.

Halloween Eve

Halloween Eve

I have never been a big fan of Halloween before. I have never celebrated, nor decorated the house or I have never went for Trick-or-Treating! If I am completely honest, there was actually a time (good few years ago), that I would not even open the door to kids trick-or-treating. Ha, I was pretty much like Grinch on Christmas, sorry kids. 😀

Since we moved to our first property with Edward, I agreed on carving the pumpkins on Halloween eve. To my own surprise, I actually found it quite entertaining. It has now become our family tradition. Every year we get a pumpkin each and carve our designs.

This year I gave up! I have not only decorated the house, not only going to carve pumpkins, but also going to dress up as a witch tomorrow (not much to dress up, I only bought a hat, otherwise I already look like one 😉 ) and do some Trick-or-Treating fun in our local area! Luka is over the moon, she has been asking all those years to go Trick-or-Treating with her! Continue reading Halloween Eve
