I am NOT afraid of costumes (in fact, I’m a bit sad that I didn’t get a chance to finish sewing mine in time, so I’ll be wearing a pumpkin t-shirt and orange-and-black stripey socks) but these are great ideas for those friends who are. Love it! :)

So… after I did lots of haunted houses in churches and halloweenparties and took my kids to american neighbourhoods …we also met all those nice christians …and they made me rethink it all..now I’m not sure where we’re going, but just dressing up notcreepy is not gonna be our thing. Either we go back to party Halloween or we stick with the dress up time in spring.. Wonder if other christian moms ever went through those braincooking thinkings..?? Thanks though for your insights!!

You and the video are just adorable, of course, and these ideas are so perfect for my Halloween grinch self. I love how easy, simple, and inexpensive they are and you are so right that the kids would just go crazy for it. I just might have to try one of these this year :).

You can’t go wrong with pumpkins! And any friendly looking sort of monster is just fun for boys (maybe girls too?), no matter what time of year. And maybe it’s because they are boys, but all of the spiders, bats, and skeletons are more interesting to them in a science-y sort of way, so we just go with that. (We gets books at the library on spiders or watch The Magic School Bus bat episode…..) And getting to dress up as a favorite super hero is like making a dream come true for my kids, so I love it.

Everyone needs to do what they feel most comfortable with for their own family, but I just wanted to throw that out there. We don’t do a lot of what is out there for Halloween, but there are still a fair share of fun and happy stuff too. Halloween is definitely one of our favorite holidays now!

This year we are all circus people. My 4 year old is named Lydia, so she is “Lydia the Tattooed Lady” from the old Marx Brothers act! My infant son is the CUTEST strong man! You can see them both on my blog: http://lydiaburchett.blogspot.com/2012/10/designing-tattooed-lady-costume.html
