It’s here! Trick or Treat Day came and went. I was so in the weeds with this Belle costume, which Hannah asked for back in July, and I ended up sewing the whole thing on Friday night. I stayed up all night, it took 11 straight hours of sewing, I binged all 9 episodes of Stranger Things 2 while I did it. But she is so excited, and I love how this gown turned out.

Still haven’t finished her costume! But I did finish this Halloween quilt. Let’s be real here, I’ve cut out the paper pattern but have not cut any fabric or sewn a stitch yet. I’ve been under the weather the past couple of days and haven’t made any more progress, but I will. I am determined to get this costume done by next Saturday, for a costume birthday party for one of Hannah’s classmates.

It took a while, it always takes a while. I didn’t go overboard this year, and if I’d planned better I would’ve put up more decorations. Unlike Christmas, which I start thinking about in July, I just don’t think about Halloween until October 1st. And then it takes me a couple of weeks to get it together, maybe next year I’ll get on top of it.

These pictures aren’t great, but it’s too drizzly a day to lay this quilt top out on the lawn for some photos, and I just realized my camera’s battery is dead. iPhone all the way.

We’ve had a pretty good Halloween season, but it was so long this year. Because I made our costumes at the end of August for our Disney trip (complete with a Halloween party in September), it has been two long months of Halloween festivities and anticipation. And now that it’s winding down, I’m glad to move on to the next thing. But we had a lot of fun!

If you’ve never seen a planner video, don’t be like me and fall down the rabbit hole of adorable women decorating hyper-organized planner systems. You’ll be hooked, and life will never be the same. I am becoming one of those women, and I made my first “plan with me” video last week. I did a Halloween-themed spread (that’s planner talk for a week’s layout in a paper planner) in my Erin Condren Life Planner for this week, and I got it all on film.

Last Sunday H, my brother, my nephew, and I went to Scothigh Farm in Rumson for the VNA Children’s Auxiliary’s Halloween Fest. It was a great fundraiser for the Children and Family Health Institute, and the kids had a ball.

So Owelette was probably where I messed up the most on these costumes, but Adam’s Catboy had its problems, too. And I did get her figured out. And, I think this might be my favorite costume (and I get to wear it).

We’re going to Disney World in September, and even though Halloween will be weeks away we’ll be going to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This is H’s first trip to Disney, and it’ll be our first time at the Halloween festivities. So I asked her what she wanted her costume to be, and we looked at some Disney characters and shows that she loves. She immediately settled on PJ Masks, and she was adamant that she would be Gecko, I would be Owelette, and Adam would be Catboy.
