Happy October 1st!

We decided to start a new tradition this year.  Last year the girls left their Halloween candy on the doorstep for the Pumpkin Fairy to pick up and leave something in it's place.  We gave them Halloween themed toys in place of the candy. 

This year we may still have the Pumpkin Fairy leave a little something in place of the candy but it won't be Halloween themed.  We decided that every year on October 1st the kids would get baskets full of Halloween things that they can use all month long.

They were so surprised and really loved all the goodies.
We got a couple new Halloween books to read at bedtime throughout the month and some dollar spot finds to go with their costumes like glow in the dark wands and necklaces.  
We also included the Halloween shirts I made for them and the new Spooky Buddies movie.

After they opened their baskets we did Halloween crafts and watched their movie!

Yay for Halloween month!!
