Super Kids

Our town celebrated Halloween on Saturday instead of Sunday.

Weird, I know, but it's a small town with small town mentalities. Most stores are closed Sundays, and Sundays are typically family days.

Whatever. It is what it is. I just follow the rules. :)

Halloween in the Einstein house isn't really a big deal. We have yet to actually go out and buy costumes for the kids, instead mostly choosing to dig through the dress-up trunk or use hand-me-downs.

This year was no different.

Last year for Christmas each of the kids got a personalized cape from Baby Pop on Etsy. So I thought, Perfect! They can be super heroes!

And so they were.

I made them each a mask that coordinated with their capes, and Presto! Instant super heroes!

I think E has her mask on upside down. Oh, well.

See! Personalized! And each of the cape combinations totally matches the corresponding child's personality. It's uncanny.

Love it!

This one wasn't very cooperative during picture time. This is as good as it got.

We ended up going downtown to trick-or-treat at the businesses. All three kids were wonderful, even M! It was fun, but crowded. And too many teenagers/adults. And infants. Why would an infant need to go trick-or-treating? Free candy for the parents? Puh-lease.

Anyway, after an hour, we were all freezing, so we went home, took warm baths, ate pizza and watched a movie, just like any other Saturday.

How was your Halloween?

Oh, yeah! The disclaimer. Baby Pop has no idea I even exist, except as a former customer. There was no compensation. At all. The end.

  1. Super cute! :) Cory wore his cape as part of his knight costume!
    I think the only reason infants should go is if they are part of a larger family group...
    Also the same reason infants don't need to be part of Easter egg hunts. Seriously Cory got like 5 eggs when he was 2 because some "infants" with help got about 25. Lame!
