Halloween Prep with The Girls

Savannah WelchComment

Life is always a fun, crazy mess with these two.  Our latest has been decorating for Halloween.  Halloween is a favorite at our house.  We all get so excited about putting up bats and witches.  Lane turns into a little kid at Halloween.  It is the best.  The girls are creatures of habit just like their daddy so they want to do everything the same way we did the year before.


One thing we started last year was wall decals that they could put on in the foyer.  We put up bats, and they do them all by themselves.  Most of the time the bats will be bunched together or upside down, but it is their wall so I have to leave it alone.  


Ella loves to scare Olivia at Halloween telling her there are skeletons and making ghost noises.  Olivia gets so scared and Ella thinks it is so funny.  She can be such a stinker.  


We added a new member to our Halloween decor this year.  He is a mummy with a hollow head that we are going to fill with candy for trick-or-treaters.  Of course he had to have a name.  Since most of the candy we have bought so far has been gummy bears, we named him Gummy the Mummy.  The girls think he is great.  He is actually my favorite decoration too.  


So we are gearing up for decorating outside.  Halloween night we have made a tradition of sorts.  My brother and his with come with my adorable nieces, as well as Lanes parents and my mom and stepdad.  We have chili and other yummy food.  We take the kids trick or treating through the neighborhood and give out candy at our house.  We have a great neighborhood.  Everyone gets into Halloween it is so much fun!  This year the girls are hooked on the Descendants 2 movie (Disney Villain kids) so they are going to be Mal (Maleficant’s daughter) and Uma (Ursula’s daughter).  I wanted them to be something completely different.  But they had decided that was definitely who they wanted, so I was overruled.  They are growing up too fast!
