What fun to do a painters costume. You have to get a photo of him with his dad and papa in their painting clothes.

That sounds like a fun costume. I've seen gallon paint pails at Home Depot. I wonder if they have smaller sizes available.

That sounds super cute!!!

I need to start giving thought to Halloween costumes too! We'll be attending Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party - on Sept 20th!!! o_O

A little early for Halloween I know, but don't tell Disney that.

We'll need costumes for DS and myself that are warm weather friendly. Yes, by gum, I am going to wear some sort of costume. Just haven't figured it out yet!

Then we'll need costumes for when we get back and are in the cold weather again for the actual holiday in October.

I bought part of my costume last year, but never finished, so I'm going to be a crazy cat lady. I have a floral pink suit that is priceless, a pink box hat that is awesome and some pink reading glasses. I've go to find some more stuffed cats to fill a large purse with and place on my body a few places. I'll probably just wear it to trunk or treat and maybe the elections office if I'm working there, but we'll see.

I won't be wearing a costume but I am so excited for Halloween/harvest because all of my décor will be here at the new house and I'll be able to finally have a good rummage through to see what I can use and what I should finally Konmari out of the house. I think I have five bins of stuff, definitely time to go through it all.

The painters costume sounds adorable. And the crazy cat lady- if I wasn't married I wouldn't need a costume because I would be a crazy cat lady. How fun!

What a great memory Halloween 2019 will be for you guys. You'll have to update us with your costume decisions.

You've got me in tears from laughing so hard. Oh my goodness! That sounds like a classic! Seriously, you could run errands with that costume and everyone smiling, if not laughing.

Are you finding it easier to get rid of things after moving?

I ordered 6 tombstones from walmart (clearance $4 instead of $18). I had one I had made but it was all broken and threw it out last Halloween. For $4 it's even less than the dollarstore.

Yes, living in a mostly empty house for the last month is making me seriously consider a less cluttered approach to decorating. I have a lot of things that are out everywhere and I'm thinking it might be time for a change. We'll see. When I finally get everything, I may change my mind again.

Halloween is not an Australian holiday but is getting more and more popular. I am no sure yet whether or not to buy lollies just in case. We did last year and no one knocked. Will think on this a bit more.

I have a Snoopy in a pumpkin that moves across the floor when you turn it on. It used to drive MudLynn crazy but Spectra is so playful, she'll probably get a kick out of it.

I was in the grocery store last night. They had their Halloween candy display box up in the seasonal section of the store.
