This morning I ran around with a friend looking for Halloween costumes. We do go trick or treating with our kids and have costumes but we don't allow them to dress in demonic clothing in any way. It's just a day we dress up and get candy. It's the only day of the year we can all dress up and knock on people's door for candy. Any other day of the year they would call the cops on us so Halloween is our excuse. Tee hee. Anyway, we first went to a regular halloween store and it about made me choke because it was really expensive. I already ordered Ryan's online because it was on sale and had free shipping. I used a 25% off coupon for Kyle's at the halloween store but we just couldn't find anything else that didn't cost an arm and a leg. Does anyone else notice that halloween stuff is way overpriced AND poor quality? Then we head to a thrift shop and it was like we walked into savings heaven. Tons and tons of new and used costumes. I ignored the new ones because they were still expensive and found the rest of the costumes for my kids for about $5 a piece.
My friend and I took all 9 kids to run around at McDonalds and try to get their energy out but it did not work at all. Haha. I babysat the rest them the rest of the day but had to head out later to the store eventually. I left my poor husband on his week off with 9 kids but we sorely needed groceries so I had to go. :(
