The Kids Behind the Blog | October 2016

Happy Wednesday! We finished our family Christmas pictures yesterday and I cannot wait to show you all how they turned out and our theme for the holiday season! But until then, let’s have another round of The Kids Behind the Blog.

Each month I will ask my kiddos a handful of questions that the TKBTB hosts provide and then share those answers with us in a link-up post the second Wednesday of each month. Check out last month here!

Simple enough, right? Let’s get to it!


Question 1:// What do you want to be for Halloween?

Carson: Ghostbuster

Ava: Minnie Mouse Tsum Tsum (um what?! I had to google it.)

Jack: DanTDM or Freddy from Five Nights at Freddy’s.

{Harvey: add libbed by mom – a gnome! DIY and how to coming soon!}


Question 2:// Do you like handing out candy or collecting it?

Carson: Collect it! 

Ava: Collecting it, but handing it out late at night is fun, too.

Jack: Collecting.


Question 3:// What should Mommy and Daddy be for Halloween?

Carson: Something really silly like all hot dogs and fries. 

Ava: Sam and Dad should be police officers and Harvey could be the little police pup! Mom and Rick should be a pencil and a sharpener. That’s a really good idea!

Jack: Bananas! Hahaha. Nope that would be weird. Maybe Dad is a cop and mom is the prisoner.


Question 4:// Do you like to make scary or happy pumpkins?

Carson: Scary. 

Ava: Happy, but I want to paint this year. I’m thinking an ice cream cone.

Jack: Scary, it’s ok Mom. I’m used to scary things.


Question 5:// What is the best/worst part of Halloween?

Carson: Candy and dressing up. But it’s only one day. 

Ava: Dressing up and going to the Parade! Nothing is bad.

Jack: Candy is the best part (BIG smile) and I don’t like that it’s at night. I have to wait too long.

Ok so my thoughts on all this? First of all, we live near the Halloween Capital of the World (sounds fancy right?!) so it’s a big deal. Kids wear costumes to school, be in the Parade, or watch the Parade, big parties at school etc. Whole nine. Secondly, this year I’ve let the kiddos start to really pick out their own costumes. I always have to an extent…but Jack’s choice is a little out of my mom approved box so we’ll see how it goes. Lastly, I did NOT ask the kids these questions at the same time, so why they really hit the police force hard for Caleb and I is beyond me. And really?! I’m the prisoner. Hmph.


Hope you enjoyed October’s Kids Behind the Blog! Catch ya again in November!

Will you be celebrating Halloween this year? What will your kiddos be? Are you the buy kind or the DIY kind?

  1. I think my favorite is what they want you to be! I also think it’s aweseome they still get to wear their costumes to school. We did growing up, but they seem to have done away with it. Makes me sad.

    1. Hi Danielle! Yes the pencil and sharpener made both Caleb and I give the side eyes ha but yes too funny. We are pretty lucky, but I think it’s the Halloween Capital factor more than anything. Thanks for stopping!

let me know what you're thinking!
