It’s Halloween time! And, with six kiddos, there is NO forgetting it. It may be their most favorite time of the year! They already have their trick-or-treating route completely mapped and they’re adding to it daily. I mean, REALLY… a large map (several pieces of paper taped together) of drawn houses, with stars by the ones they think will give the biggest treats. I may be driving around for hours! Ha, but it’s awesome to see them so excited. I’m a Halloween fan too.
I’ve been telling my kids for the past two months that it’s not time to get their Halloween costumes yet… ‘let’s wait until October.’ Last Wednesday was FINALLY their big day. The moment we’ve all been waiting for… Halloween costume shopping. My oldest boys picked theirs out online and the littles wanted to go to the costume store. So, let me tell you what my children are turning into at months end: Captain America, Elmo, a dead prom queen, a dead… um, lady, and TWO boys in tuxedo morph suits. I will likely be a frazzled mom in sweat pants.
I love how with Halloween, you can have fun with it all month long. The kiddos have been making crafts, watching spooky movies, reading Halloween books, you name it. So, they were totally excited when I brought home TruMoo’s limited edition Orange Scream milk from the store. We are already big TruMoo Chocolate Milk drinkers, so orange milk?? … they were all over it… and loved it! It’s like those yummy orange cream pops, but without all the sugar (no artificial growth hormones or high fructose corn syrup.)
So, I started snagging a few pictures of my kiddos and their TruMoo happiness and something spooky happened. My kid turned into an absolute nut! He’s really hoping TruMoo is proud of his modeling, because he’s pretty proud… he insisted I share his ‘portfolio’ on Facebook with all of my friends.
Caden prefers to just get down to business…
If your kids haven’t tried the new Orange Scream, it’s a winner! And, if you have any left after 5 minutes of bringing it in the door, TruMoo has some fun Halloween treats for you, both using their limited edition Orange Scream. Check ’em out…
