Halloween Preparation

We are loving the Ber Months and before we jump to December let's enjoy Halloween. It's not that my family celebrate the Halloween but the kids love Halloween decoration and looking forward to the trick and treat every year. We decided to decorate the house to keep them happy. They are also hoping that they have a Halloween event in the school this time because it was cancelled last year because of Covid.

A week ago we went to Hardy's, our local shop here in Comber and it's filled with Halloween displays inside the shop. They always have a good display whatever occasion or holiday event it is.

The first time we see the displays we took Tia inside and she's not happy, she wasn't impressed and told me she want to go back to the car. I agree with Tia as it scared me too. So we just go back to the car after seeing some creepy display.

What scared her the most is when it suddenly moves as it has a sensor. And the sounds will startle you too. They all look realistic, well made.

Here are some of the Halloween Displays at Hardy's:

We didn't buy anything because the price tag is scarier than it looks. That will give a heart attack on our bank account. But since the 1st of October and every day after, Tia and Jigz were like,

"Mommy, is it Halloween today? Are we going to decorate? Are we going to buy pumpkins"?

"When? When? When?"

So the other day, the husband, not me decided he is going to buy something to put in the house for Halloween.

So we went back and have a look. The husband really wants to get the Ghost Rider. I don't like it because I don't like the price and I keep putting him off because where are we going to put it? In the garden? But he insists he will find a place for it in the house. Where? At the ceiling?

But as we keep looking around the shop we keep seeing more better horrifying displays. So we ended up getting three.

First (The Butler)

We took this home. Hahaha.. Imagine this creepy butler in front of the car with me. As we take it out from the shop people are looking and saying, "That's a good one!" What I'm thinking is "they must be thinking we're mental".

Did Mum likes it when she sees it?

Lol, she loves it! She keeps laughing at it. She thinks he's lovely and that's his new boyfriend now. She said, when we lift Tia into school we have to tell her that she got a new boyfriend.

Can you guess how Tia reacts when he saw the butler?

My poor baby got scared of it! She didn't come near it. But you know what's my purpose of this because I want her to face her fear. Because when we went to Blackpool, we went to see The Dungeon and she was scared so I have to go out with her even we haven't finished it. I'm scared too anyway.

Here's Tia's reaction

But you know just after that since Lola put sweets on the butler's tray and she had enough of it, she started to come around and say,

"Lola, is this your boyfriend?"

Oh, we laugh. She's having a good look at it

See? She's smiling at it now. And from that moment she keeps pressing it all the time to talk. She loves it even greet it good morning when she wakes up. And lol she gave him a name. Allan. Our butler is Allan and the rat is John.

While Jigz as soon as he comes home was very pleased to see it. I mean to see the sweets on it.

Second (Ghost Rider)

This is the apple of my husband's eye. He really wants to get this one. Don't ask me I don't know why. It says different things, some good ones too!

Third (The Witch)

Would you believe, this is the exact witch they have in The Blackpool Dungeon? Do you want to know the price? This one is cheaper than the Ghost Rider and it's £180. This is 6 ft tall. I just don't like it when its head moves forward.

And that's the 3 in the house with us. No one is bothered now. And this is how it ends up.

Look at those happy faces! Do they look scared? No!

Today at the shop I saw these Halloween treats and got them for them. They have mini pizza, nuggets, potato fries and ice cream.

And in Asda we saw the pumpkins already out so might as well get it while it's there because it's always sold out when we want to get it. We get an extra-large pumpkin!

And that's us ready for Halloween. Only when we get home Tia said,

"When are we going to carve the pumpkin?"

And cried because she can't have it today. So we regret showing the pumpkin to her lol. She's too excited!

I know not all celebrate Halloween. We don't do too but for the kids, we will. All they know is Halloween is about the trick and treat and pumpkin carving. They all know about the fun. And we are letting them have fun!

OMG! I would be scared ma🤣🤣 Like they look so much like those I see in horror movies and I can't stand seeing them around me. I think it was the sweet on the tray that made Tia come closer😁 I wouldn't be surprised if Jingz wasn't scared at first since he is a guy and would be curious to see them especially knowing no harm would come near him 😄

Hala nakakatuwa naman! Ang swerte ng anak mo pati mga ganito naexperienced nya. Yung mga anak ko ngrerequest din ng decorations na pang holloween. Kaya lang failed yung pagbili ko online, scam hehe.. Kaya simpleng bats stickers lang nabili ko tapos yung mga anak k mismo pagagawain ko ng decorations 😁. Gagawin kong free time activities nila kasi mahilig din sila mag drawing ng mga horror characters. Sana makagawa kami. Nga pala, si butler pinakagusto ko.
