Now onto the Halloween Spooktacular Fun…
1. What is your favorite thing about Halloween?
Getting to have fun and be a big kid with my Kiddies. We have so much fun picking out costumes, carving pumpkins and passing out candy. It has become one of our favorite Holidays.
2. What is the first piece of Halloween candy that you grab?
Anything and everything chocolate and gooey. LOL…I love Snickers, Reese’s, KitKats and all things like that. My Kiddies rarely get to even see them before I swipe them.
3. Do you decorate for Halloween? If so, cute-sie or spooky? (Bonus for pics)
Yes! Well usually. This year kind of got away from us and I’m not sure we will get our decorations up in time BUT here are a few pics from last year…we normally go for a combination of spooky and cute-sie. We still want the Kiddies to come by for the candy after all 🙂
4. What was your favorite Halloween costume that you have worn so far?
Definitely my Hello Kitty Nerd Girl from last year. I had so much fun and wore it as many times as I could that Halloween week.
5. Do you still dress up?
6. What are your kiddos dressing as this year?
I had myself fully prepared to be another on of the Anna and Elsa moms BUT my Girlies completely shocked me and chose a Lala Loopsy Doll and A Girl Robin Hood! My Little Buddie decided to be Bumblebee from the Transformers! I must say they look absolutely adores!
7. What is your FAVORITE scary movie?
Yeah ummm about Scary. I don’t exactly do that too well. I can force myself through a Thriller but there have been times even those have caught me off guard. So I try to stear clear completely.
8. What movie scared you the most?
So when I was around 5 or 6 all of my older cousins were talking about Nightmare on Elm Street. They had all seen it and apparently it was the Best Movie EVER. So of course this made me want to join in the Big Kid fun but my Grandmother said “Absolutely NOT!!!”
What did this mean to me? That I had to figure out a way to see it without her permission. Yeah I was a bit mischievous. So, I waited until I was at a sleep over at my cousins house and I started asking them about the movie and why it was so great. They talked it up and decided to re-watch it that night.
Now they knew I wasn’t supposed to see it so the ‘sent me to bed’ in another room. Another room with a door right to where the TV was! I sat behind that door and watched most of the movie through a crack. Let me tell you, that 1 1/2 inches of movie that I saw scared the mess outta me!! I couldn’t sleep at all that night and had nightmares for weeks. Of course my Grandmother figured out why and not only did she remind me why disobeying her was not a great idea but my older cousins got a mouthful as well.
9. Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas or Practical Magic?
Now see these are more along my line of Halloween themed movies. I can do magic and such. Now I must admit and I know I am probably the minority BUT I just don’t like The Nightmare Before Christmas – it’s too morbid for me. I know crazy coming from a Walking Dead and Originals fanatic but I just can’t get with it. My Kiddies love it though so I’ll probably be watching it this weekend whether I want to or not – that’s parenthood – LOL.
The movie I would pick out of the 3 choices would definitely be Practical Magic. I love Sandra Bullock in nearly everything she does and Nicole Kidman was great in this as well. It reminds me so much of Charmed and I fell in love with it the first time I saw it.
10. What is your favorite Halloween monster?
See answer to No. 8. I Don’t Do Scary. So Casper maybe? At least he’s friendly 🙂
