This Halloween, we managed to purchase nothing for our costumes. We borrowed, repurposed/crafted or already owned all our Halloween outfits and accessories. Man, that was nice! Greta had her heart set on being a cheetah and I was gearing up to make her an outfit when I remembered our neighbor has a cheetah costume. So perfect! 

I’m trying out a new tradition to make holidays a little more special and help me feel like I’m doing my part as momma. I’m going to try to make them a simple breakfast. We couldn’t make ours on Halloween morning, so I made pumpkin pancakes and ghost bananas for them on Sunday. The girls thought it was pretty great so I count that as a win!

We went trick or treating with friends down the most picturesque parkway. Old houses and decorations plus so many other families in costumes. It felt really American and Hollywood to me!
