Halloween 2017

Last week after school Halloween began for our family! I picked up Princess Elena of Avalon and we head right over to NOMA to enjoy a Pumpkin Palooza!

We have been attending for the last few years and it’s amazing how this community event has grown tremendously in attendance numbers!

Next up… we enjoyed some weekday funnin at Catholic University! Both kids were official NASA astronauts ( it was so cold baby boy didn’t get to show off his shirt…. but he did trick or treat…. for me 😜 because I mean let’s be honest…. I can’t let my precious baby eat candy yet!) The kids had a blast! The students worked hard and were so kind to the attendees! They served pizza and snacks, had a trick or treat trail with fun costumes all around. Tons of games and activities, face paint and two moon bounces on a large field that was highly decorated for all to enjoy! We will definitely be back next year!

Three days into Halloween and it’s time to hit the Halloween streets! Crowded per usual! Fun costumes and a bucket full of goodies.

Are anyone else’s kids obsessed with The Descendants Movie? Liv/Uma was pumped to get all suited up and debut her outfit!

The weekend was also filled with parties cue: Beyoncé “We Like to Party” ….. and

Halloween has not even officially arrived!

This Wednesday we attended an early screening for Home It was absolutely amazing! Let’s begin with the obvious appeal…. The main character is a strong and brave brown girl by the name of Gratuity! Of all the films I have taken my little to see (and she is quite the little aficionado) this is the first time there has been a film that made a huge effort to be inclusive of varied shades of the human race. Let alone a brown main character! Watching the theatre fill with little brown girls with curly hair, I was literally over joyed that Dreamworks created this film. Representation is so necessary! The storyline centered heavily on the importance of family as well as individuality. The value of family and the lengths in which loved ones will endure to stay together. The movie is rated PG so for the sensitive be mindful that the words stupid and idiot were used once or twice ,and I was a little confused as to why there was no explanation about the absence of her father. However, none of these things were a distraction to the theme of love and loyalty that in the end saved everyone. This is absolutely a movie I look forward to adding to our collection and watching over and over! Don’t walk …run to the theatre with your family for this awesome film.
