Happy Halloween!

Girl's Halloween Costume
Girl's Halloween Costume
Have you seen this gorgeous Belle costume?!  This honestly makes me wish I was a kid again, I loved Beauty and the Beast!  Belle was so awesome, she liked to read books, she totally ignored the big, arrogant jock guy, Gaston, and then she fell in love with the Beast instead.  Fabulous story, great music, too. 

If Belle isn't your little girl's favorite herione, not to worry, we have a huge selection of other princesses, mermaids and more, so you'll find the perfect girl's halloween costume or baby girls halloween costumes for your family. 

It's been awhile since I've had time to post activity ideas, but you're in luck- because today I have three adorable Halloween ideas for your family and neighbors!  I didn't come up with these on my own, they're courtesy of my wonderful office-neighbor, Jean. 

Idea 1:  Host a neighborhood safe party!
Serve chilli or soup, and request that each family in attendance bring a side dish.  Set up classic Halloween games for the kids, like bobbing for apples.  Require all the adults to bring a picture of themselves when they were little wearing a costume.  Kids love to see photos of their parents as children, and the adults will have fun laughing about how cute and dorky everyone was! 

Idea 2:  Visit a local nursing home or retirement home (call first, of course) with the kids. 
A lot of times, the people in these homes don't get to see kids in Halloween costumes, so it's a sweet way to brighten up their Halloween season.  Bring "treats," like large-print magazines and playing cards, and maybe hard candy. 

Idea 3:  If you live near a college or university, call and see if there's something you can do for the freshman dormitories.  A lot of those kids are away from home for the first time, and come the end of October, might be getting quite homesick.  A little bag of Halloween treats made with love might really cheer them up. 

Hopefully you'll find those ideas useful!  Don't forget to check out Sophia's Style when you start shopping for that perfect Halloween costume! 

Happy October (tomorrow's the 1st, so don't forget to pay rent!)
