This year, Jax and Em decided to be two of their favorite characters from pop culture for Halloween: Harry Potter and Elsa (specifically, Elsa from Frozen Fever). Little H decided that she wanted to be what she loves most in the world–Em’s sister–so she chose to be Anna to Em’s Elsa. All three of them were so sweet, so excited, and so ecstatic to be in character, I think it may have been my favorite Halloween yet.
These two are just a joy. I love watching what amazing friends they are, listening to them whisper when the lights go out at night, always looking out for each other. Little H had several ideas of what she wanted to be on Halloween, all based on her own interests and likes, but for right now, there is nothing she loves more than being as close to her sister as can be.
This guy’s brain is always going a mile a minute, and whether it’s reading at home, processing all the incredible learning that’s going on at school, or just being the cool kid he is, nothing is more perfect for him right now than to be Harry Potter. It is everything I cherish most about him: his sense of adventure, his love of reading, his boyish charm, his fun. He’s counting the days until he turns 11 and fully expects an owl to arrive with a piece of parchment in its beak, inviting him to Hogwarts.
I’m going to have to work on that.
Our afternoon and evening was filled with friends, lots of food, candy galore and very happy children.
What a memorable holiday! So very sweet!
