What a Happy Halloween Weekend!

This year I am extra excited about all of the Holiday events and traditions, now that these little ones (you know the ones whom have been attached to my hip as of late) are old enough to enjoy and kinda understand that some days are more special than other.

When I remember this time of year I remember it feeling magical.
I remember the apple cider, and pies and scent of apples and cinnamon which seemed to be stuck to the air
I remember the hot coco and little Marshmello's
I remember getting sick and getting the good juice mix (7-up and OJ) and chicken noodle soup, the cheap kind made by cambells
I remember reading the Christmas Story from the Bible every day, chapter by chapter starting December 1st
I remember every fall I got to go on a huge winter shopping spree
and I remember snuggles and thick blankets
and long family drive to see every cool completely decorated Christmas decorated house
then laughing at how long it must have taken them to do it

And I want...
I want my kids to feel that special magic I felt myself
I want joy on their faces and I want them to feel the excitement of knowing that this feeling gets to come back,
every year
This feeling gets to light up in their hearts

This is why I spent so much time putting together the girls halloween costume. I had plans to make Carli's by hand but last minute my hubby and I bought her dress. 
Which BTW, Chloe refused to put on the Merida costume I made to match the Brave movie and opted for her sisters costume we bought. Haha. Plans-out-window

Can you just see how happy they look?
