Shopping for Halloween Costumes
Written by my friend Ian Cruz
Going shopping for Halloween costumes is so exciting. I have four children, and we all dress up in matching costumes. Sometimes there selection of costume is something I would never choose, but it is still a lot of fun for us all. Getting dressed seems to take us all day!
They are ready to shop for their costumes as soon as they hit the shelves, but we usually wait until the middle of the month to go. I set the home security alarm (ADT Home Security CA specials) and we begin our search for our costumes. They will change their minds about what they want to be a few times before finally deciding. I always allow them to choose the costumes that they want.
We trick or treat around the neighborhood, and spend a couple of hours out knocking on doors. The kids end up with so much candy it is ridiculous. But they have a good time, and getting mom dressed up in face makeup and a costume seems to excite them just as much as the actual trick or treating.
