Comments Off on Belle, Chip and a Storm Trooper | Halloween Costumes 2017

This year may be the quickest passing year (so it seems) yet! Still can’t believe that Halloween has come and gone. Before we switch gears on the blog to all things Christmas I wanted to make sure that I uploaded some photos from our 2017 Halloween adventures. Mostly for my sake to remember the kids Halloween Costumes, and partially because I know some of you wouldn’t mind to take a peek either.

Ezra went to school full on dressed in his costume while Sophie did her preschool in a set of dollar store fairy wings. I had a pretty good feeling that if she went in her dress, she may not have any dress left to wear at the end of it. After preschool we did a quick costume change (literally so quick, did it in the car) and then went Downtown Abbotsford. I love trick-or-treating Downtown Abbotsford, you often run into friends and it’s perfect for younger kids that you might not want to take out in the evening. This has become a bit of a tradition as we have gone for the last three (maybe even four) years.

We met up with my sister and her boys and the kids couldn’t get enough of it! They ate as they went, admired the spooky decor and were definitely is good spirits (but let’s be honest, why wouldn’t they be? Everyone they saw gave them a new candy ha!)

I got to snap some photos of the girls before we got going. Evelyn’s costume I made the night before (cost me under $10, win!). It was one of those things where you get this “awesome idea” and you really don’t know if it will turn out or not. Well, happy to say, it was just as I imagined it. I couldn’t find a Chip costume anywhere locally and so this is what we came up with. Sophie walked around saying, “I’m Belle,” and “Look Mom, there’s another Belle!” She was pretty good at placing her hands on her hips and walking with purpose. It really was the perfect costume for her.

After picking Ezra up from school we went to visit some family and that is where I attempted a photo of the three of them. Whelp. That was a fail. By this point Evelyn’s costume straps had ripped and didn’t stay around her waist or neck anymore. Ezra declined the ask of holding it in front of her and when Sophie volunteered, she decided she better give it a try instead. So there are what I got. (I do think that my MIL might have captured them as she starting clicking before I did, fingers crossed!)

Another win was picking up Ezra’s costume from the Big Box store in Abbotsford the weekend before Halloween. I thought we were getting a steal of a deal for $16 and then when she rang us up is was only just over $8. Even cheaper then Evelyn’s.. amazing! Note to self, always procrastinate Halloween shopping, cross your fingers that you find something good and save some money! ha!

In the evening we went to our old neighbourhood as where we live now is too rural for trick-or-treating (or neighbours said they have never gotten anyone, haha!) We bumped into friends from Ezra’s school, got to see some old neighbours and had a great time exploring. I couldn’t believe how quickly Sophie was moving from house to house this year. Kept up to her big brother for most of the night.

Hope you all had a great Halloween! Now who is ready for Christmas?

  • Hello! I wanted to welcome all the new faces around here as it’s been a while since I did any sort of introduction. So here is a little about how I started and a goal of mine, please do share a little about you, and a goal too!⠀
•⠀
I started this blog over four years ago while on mat leave with Sophie. I’d never met anyone who blogger, didn’t know a thing about building a website but had a passion for social media and a need for connection.⠀
•⠀
Six months later I went to school for graphic design and graduated from BCIT and Emily Carr in Vancouver a year later. It was a crazy year doing school and keeping this blog afloat — but I’m so glad I did it!⠀
•⠀
This space has grown into such a beautiful thing for me. A place to feel inspired, creative, encouraged and connected to so many others in the same and different stages of life.⠀
•⠀
It’s been on my heart (for over a year now) to create a physical place for connection, not just this profile on Instagram. I have no idea what it looks like yet but the passion is growing stronger as I feel I might start having more time to develop on this idea. I think I need to start taking some of my own advice, the same line I say to those wanting to start a blog but don’t know how. Just start, you’ll figure it out as you go.⠀

  • Has anyone else started to get that back to school panic yet? Like how the heck is it two weeks away?? I was talking to a friend yesterday about both our kids going into kinds this year and how strange of a stage it is. We’ve spent 5 years raising these little humans of ours and then off they go to spend most of their day learning. I’m super excited for Sophie because I know she’s going to love it, but that weird mom panic is starting to set in 😅 also! Ezra is going into Grade 4 😶 when did that happen?! He thinks he is going into grad 5 because he was in a 3/4 split last year and already knows everything that Grade 4’s would learn 🤷🏼‍♀️ he’s got a good argument but I keep telling him I’m pretty sure he’s going into grade 4 still, poor guy.

On a whole other note... Evelyn has started to master this whole potty training thing and I bought he some underwear cause we are fully committing (minus bedtimes) things really do happen all at once when it comes to parenting hey.. we’ve got all the feels happening today 😅😢😳😍😊🤔 ps: @peoplefootwear my kids want to thank you for keeping their feet stylish and comfortable this summer 😘 #gifted #peoplefootwear
