Who doesn’t love seeing little ones all decked out in their oh so cute Halloween costumes? I think they are all just ridiculously adorable, so we decided to go to the Westfield Family Spooktacular Costume Contest with our own wee kiddo. There was only one issue however. Jake flat out refused to wear his lion costume that I had so carefully selected. Sure, it was a little snug and included a furry head piece, but I was pinning my hopes on having our very own first adorable Halloween on that costume. In the end though, rather than deal with the continued meltdown, I threw together this football outfit out of what we had on hand, and raced to the mall. Hey tiny football players are cute too right? Haha!
There were coveted trophies and Build-A-Bear prizes for the best costumes!
What a turnout it was! Kids were lined up at Westfield in huge groups.
This little skunk was one of my favorites I must say.
As was this character from Monsters, Inc. I just love those googly eyes!
Jake of course hammed it up on stage despite phoning it in for his costume.
And he received his first medal for participation, ha!
We all truly had a wonderful time at the Spooktacular celebration and it was a welcome distraction from Hurricane Sandy which is, EEEK, too quickly approaching us. It’s great being able to participate in such cute and fun events as a family of three now! I can’t wait to spend some more time at Westfield. In fact, Westfield Family also has trick-or-treating and kid friendly festivities on Halloween from 5-7pm. So, don’t miss out! You can find out more here or RSVP on their Facebook page.
