Another year another Halloween! This is one of my favorite holidays. I love the trips to the pumpkin patch, the treats, and the fun costumes. The boys were super heroes and I bought a 2 dollar cat mask. Nothing crazy, until Party City sold out of Spiderman. The one super hero Liam was dying to be for Halloween. I mean everyday he reminded me about the Spiderman costume. So what is a mom to do? Drive out 25 miles to another store. Thank goodness they had one. You are welcome Liam. Jace was the baby from the Incredibles. He was going to be a shark, but with the hot weather here in LA, he would have passed out wearing a thick costume like that. So baby Incredible he was. I think we did good this year.
Like I mentioned before, I always try to find easy treats to make during the holidays. These apple caramel slices with toppings were great. Liam and his buddy enjoyed a few and of course us moms did too.
We always try to squeeze in a fun day in October. At The Americana in Glendale they had a small concert for kids out on the lawn. Kids came in costumes and paraded around all day. Liam and Jace enjoyed some time running around and watching the dancing fountains. I was even nice enough to get them both a Sprinkles cupcake. Have you had one of their cupcakes? So freaking delicious! They melt in your mouth. Damn you butter! Yes, I ate half of Liam’s and Jace had a mini one without the frosting.
