I know what we did last…Halloween

Our family Halloween antics

Dear mummy, I know what you did last summer…..*cough* I mean last Halloween.

Dear mummy blog HalloweenEveryone that knows you, knows you LOVE Halloween, it’s a big thing in our house and you’ve been attending Halloween parties since you were a little girl.

Even when you were pregnant with me you were out in fancy dress, partying, drinking ginger beer!

Our first Halloween as a family last year was spent carving pumpkins with close family friends, decorating the house and getting ready for a fabulous children’s party. Over the last eight years you and daddy have dressed up as, Dog soldiers, pumpkins, witches, vampires, Sweeney Todd, Corpse Bride, Morticia Adams, the White Queen, Star Wars characters, zombies and the list goes on! I hope you like the flash-back photos I found off your computer! There are so many photos so I picked the best ones.

Baby Isabella Carving PumpkinsWhile I was browsing through your photos I also found our first pumpkin carving attempt, we had such good fun that day and can’t wait to try it again next week.

I love the fashion that’s around too, dark autumnal colours, neon greens and oranges and creepy spider and bat tops and leggings.

My favourite is my little ghost jumper from Bonnie Baby UK and the great selection from NEXT.

We hope that everyone has a lovely a Halloween this year, we’ll be prepping by baking spooky cupcakes, lighting candles for the carved pumpkins and going to parties.
