Little Red Riding Hood + The Big Bad Wolf - Halloween 2018 (and... Mario Brothers!)

So my big theme this year for the family costumes was Mario. I even bought a very special Princess Peach dress for Blakely. But then last minute I found this Little Red Riding Hood costume at TJ Maxx and of course, the kids loved these costumes/theme! :) I'm so glad I went ahead and bought the costumes for them because they are sooo cute.

We still took some pics in the Mario themed costumes (I'll add some pics of those costumes in this blog post, too) but the kids had way more fun with the other theme. Plus, Blakely was soooooo freaked out by Ryder and daddy wearing those huge fake mustaches. Bahahaha.

I'm so glad the kids see the fun and joy in Halloween. I always loved Halloween! My kids are really into dressing up in costumes right now, so it's tons of fun! Ryder also has an astronaut costume and a new dragon costume. (Both kids were dragons for Halloween last year - you can see those pics here.) And Blake got a Snow White costume and a mermaid costume. Ha! I can't say no. #oops

I love these fun memories with the kiddies!
Ok, lots of pics! :) All costumes linked at the bottom of blog (including Mario).

And Mario!...
She was so excited when he took his mustache off LOL

Sprinkle + Dot Slumber Party

Last week we had a little family sleepover in the family room in our Sprinkle + Dot tents. You guys, the kids were sooooo excited about this and kept saying how cool it all was! :) It was the cutest thing seeing them so pumped about it.

Sprinkle + Dot is the cutest company ever! They have multiple themes (I can't wait to do the Star Wars theme for Ryder in the future and the Blush + Blooms theme for Blake) and they are all really cute. Like, the cutest ever.

This is a great idea for a birthday party or anything else you might be celebrating with your kids. You choose your theme and they come and set everything up for you! So easy and so much fun. They also brought cupcakes (to match!) and the kids gobbled those up so fast. Haha. We had a little party with our family and stayed up late watching movies, drinking cider, eating popcorn and snuggling in the tents by the fire. Seriously, it made my mommy heart so happy!

Go check out their site. I hope you do this fun activity with your kids. It was the highlight of their life haha! My kids keep asking when the tents are coming back. :) The kids also had so much fun with these lanterns and the cute string lights on the tents. It really was so great. All the heart eyes!
