How Old is Too Old to Trick or Treat?

IMG_3261

In my very kid filled neighborhood the trick or treating starts at 6m. The littlest kids trickle in as the sun sets, each toddling toddler costume cuter than the next. There are the classics, like little witches and vampires and pirates, and there are always clever surprises. Some of the parents dress up to walk…

  It’s that time again! Camp Spooky returns to Knott’s. This not so scary Halloween celebration is a perfect activity for younger kids in the month of October. It’s one of the fall seasons’ most fun things to do in Southern California. Our whole family enjoys Knott’s at Halloween time and I’m glad that there…

Trick or Treat – Mickey Style! Halloween at Disneyland

  It’s my most favorite time of year at Disney. Every year at Halloween the park is transformed. Not-so-spooky decor, “Halloween Screams – A Villainous Surprise in the Skies,” a fireworks spectacular (this one is my fave),  and of course… Mickey’s Halloween Party! On select nights, come to the Disneyland Park in costume to trick-or-treat in the ultimate…

The Stupidest Sexy Costumes for Halloween

Remote Control Costume I’m taking break from my usual rant about overly sexual teen/tween costumes. It’s like beating my head against the wall. Honestly the problem is not going away and yes it is still on my mind as the mom of teen/tween girls, but I’d rather laugh than cry this year. Plus, I have…

This week we’re ordering our Halloween Costumes and accessories and I thought I would share some of the discounts we’re enjoying. I kind of feel like everyone…

Gluten Free Halloween Candy? Check this list!

I thought about making a list similar to this one (linked below) but Alison St Sure from Sure Foods Living has come up with a Gluten-Free Candy list so exhaustive, that there would be no point in trying. Here’s three candies I have found out (the hard way!) that DO have wheat in them and…

Legoland Halloween: Brick or Treat Nights!

This post is for my So Cal pals and travelers visiting our area… We’re so fortunate to live so close to so many great theme parks. At Halloween time, they pull out the stops everywhere from Disney to Knotts Berry Farm. Not to be outdone, Legoland has a great Halloween treat for littler kids. Now…

Tween Halloween Costume Hall of Shame!

It’s that time of year again. That time when market forces seem to dictate that ten year olds should dress in fetish wear and ask strange men for candy.  For one night, just one night… we can turn all the regular stuff on it’s ear. It’s one thing for adults to embrace the pageantry of…
