It's all been about Halloween. #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:

This week all our thoughts seem to have been about Halloween. The kids have been off school for half term too so we have have been having plenty of fun.

The kids kindly reminded me that I had forgotten to buy their Halloween costumes....Oops. 

Hooray for online shopping and Tesco. Ellie wanted the Zombie Prom Queen outfit and Becky has decided she is too old to get dressed up and just wanted a t-shirt. I love it! hehehe

We have baked. I got some cake & biscuit mixes from Tesco a few weeks ago and the girls did a great job and we did some crafts. I got a few kits from Hobbycraft. All Halloween related of course....The girls love painting and these and the end result was brilliant.

Today the pumpkins should be arriving with the shopping so this afternoon will be spent carving them....I think I may have gone a little over the top with them. I've ordered 6 I think.

If I didn't have kids I think Halloween would just pass me by and I wouldn't get involved but the girls love it.

We're planning on having a little party tea tomorrow night while watching Strictly and The X-Factor and Ellie wants to wear her Halloween costume. Any excuse to dress up. lol


  1. SIX PUMPKINS!!! yes, I think you've gone over the top haha! We went to do our pumpkin carving at a local farm yesterday, but got the wrong day, so we are off again tomorrow...only 3 pumpkins for us. It sounds like you've had a fun week the crafts look great x

  2. Wow you have been busy this week ! I love Halloween, I think I will still be celebrating still long after the kids grow up. Have a fab weekend x #WotW

  3. Wow, you have packed so much it, neil buchanan would be impressed! I love all the a actvitiies and what that t-shirt. Have a fab weekend X #wotw

  4. Six pumpkins sounds very reasonable to me. About the same as us. (not fessing up!)Your crafts look so much fun. Love the witch biscuits. Must look out for that cutter. One of my daughters is very into her Halloween makeup. Lots of grotesque scars and zips on faces. I think she would love to do Ellie's makeup as a zombie prom queen. #wotw

  5. You are going all in, I love it! That's a fab t shirt, hope the girls enjoy dressing up and having a Halloween evening tomorrow - I do love Halloween Strictly! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  6. Love all the decorations and outfits that have been selected. Happy Halloween #WotW
