Halloween Costumes 2022

Happy Halloween! I hope you have a great day/evening while making good choices. That’s right folks, be safe.

Today marks the third Halloween that we have been blessed with two kids to dress up. Although we are yet to dress Sloan and Beau in themed costumes, I did make this TikTok video that chronicles their Halloween history together.

But this blog post isn’t about the past. Instead, this post is about Halloween 2022 and the costumes that Sloan and Beau will be wearing tonight. Let’s begin with the eldest.

Introducing Sloan and Beau for Halloween 2022!

Sloan is a witch this year. As will be even more obvious when we get to Beau, Sid and I went for convenience and thriftiness in 2022. Putting together a witch costume isn’t that difficult and it only really entailed us purchasing a witch’s hat and black skirt. We added everything else with stuff we had around the house, including a magic wand.

Beau is Georgie Pig from Peppa Pig. If you remember, Sloan was Peppa three years ago. That costume came in handy this year. As I mentioned in a recent Thursday Rundown blog post, Beau found the Peppa costume and wore it for a day. However, we didn’t necessarily want him to revive the female costume for Halloween. So Sidney went to Walmart and purchased a $2 shirt that is similar to what Georgie wears. She made alterations to the Peppa costume and fit it with the Georgie shirt to totally transform it. Beau is now a convincing Georgie.

We have enjoyed a few Halloween activities this month but tonight is the main event. If a witch and pig come to your door tonight, I hear that their dad…oops…I mean themselves…really enjoy Reese’s peanut butter cups. Don’t Blink.

Olivia Thursday Rundown

What do you say we do this rundown thing again? I have five topics to present to you so let’s get started…

Peppa Pig Reser Kids – Last week, Beau got into our old Halloween costumes and put on what Sloan wore when she was Beau’s age. For Halloween 2019, she was Peppa Pig, and, conveniently, Beau watches the show a lot currently. Sid couldn’t get Beau to take the costume off the whole day as he even insisted on sleeping in it. Although he won’t be Peppa for Halloween 2022, it was kind of cute.

Naughty Step – Sometimes Peppa needs a timeout. Our newest form of discipline in our house is “the Naughty Step.” When Sloan and Beau get a little too out of control, they can see themselves to this branded step stool in a corner of our house. So far it seems to be working but perhaps it is just the novelty of it all? Hopefully not but we shall see.

Beau and Sloan have found themselves on this step lately.

Driver’s License – Red lights. Stop signs. I still see your face… Oh sorry, I am not talking about the song. On this date 8 years ago, I was issued my first South Carolina driver’s license. That part was cool but I sadly had to surrender my Montana driver’s license. If you are interested in learning about that strange trip to the DMV and you want to see some hilariously bad driver’s license photos of yours truly, make sure to read this post from October 20, 2014.

I wish issued this South Carolina driver’s license on this date 8 years ago today!

National Chicken and Waffles Day – Throughout my life, I have ordered chicken and waffles every now and then at various restaurants. I have to be in the mood for the combination as I don’t always prefer syrup on my fried chicken. But on those days that I am craving it, if the waffle is fresh and chicken is crispy, it makes for a pretty tasty treat. Chicken and Waffles Lay’s potato chips are a different story…

Pumpkin Throwback Thursday – I shared this photo of me with a jack-o-lantern on Twitter. My mom reached out to me (since she is always browsing Twitter) and said that she could see Beau in the picture. Now I don’t know about that, but I am getting excited to carve pumpkins with the kids a little later this month.

Our extended season of gorgeous weather looks to be coming to an end. Today we once again hit 70 degrees but tomorrow the high temperature is forecast to plunge into the low 50s. Although I wouldn’t mind more sunny and 75 days, I am sure sweater weather lovers are happy. Don’t Blink.
