Moms Check In

Fall is here and that means Halloween is right around the corner! We always have a great time picking out Sam’s costume and dressing up. This year, he had a hard time deciding what he wanted to be. For several days, I felt like his choice changed hourly. We’re finally settled and ready to celebrate Halloween!

What Are Your Kids Dressing Up As For Halloween?


Lindsay: The entire family is dressing up as Star Wars characters! I haven’t dressed up for Halloween in years but we found the BEST costumes for all of us at Halloween Express and I just had to get them. The kids are so obsessed with Star Wars right now that we’re sort of buried in it – books, movies, puzzles, toys. So this was perfect. I can’t wait to answer the door this year! – Lindsay is the mom of 2 and author of See Mom Click. She shares great deals, Disney happenings and recipes. You can follow her on Twitter here!


Jenni: I never dress up myself. I’m so boring. haha! The kiddo will be going as a Buzz Lightyear. He’s totally obsessed with him. He loves trick or treating and I think he’ll be tickled when he gets to wear his costume to school! – Jenni is the mom of one and the author of Sweet Pennies From Heaven.

Amanda: We are so excited about Halloween! Joshua is going to be a Ghostbuster. He has been vacuuming up bad guys ever since his costume has come in! I will be dressing up too. I’m going all 1920’s and becoming a flapper. Complete with blonde hair. 🙂 – Amanda is the mom to Joshua and owns It’s a Fabulous Life.

Stephanie Keeping

Stephanie is in love with a boy named Sam. He has taught her that it’s okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots. She hangs out here blogging at Spaceships and Laser Beams and at our printable party shop on Etsy.
