Halloween 2018 - The Zoo Goes Trick-or-Treating

One of my most favorite things about having quadruplets is the endless amount of group costume ideas. In the past, we've done the Four Seasons, The Four Aces, Mickey, Minnie, Donald & Daisy. And this year, we went as (drumroll please) the Zoo!

For months we went back and forth with different costume ideas.  In the past, I only dressed the kids up but as they get older, more and more they want me to dress up with them. As a single mom juggling a lot of priorities, working, keeping up a house and trying to raise four small children completely by myself, I decided that for the first time, I would not be able to make their costumes and maintain my sanity at the same time. So we started looking online for costumes on sale.  When we started finding lots of animal costumes and they started getting excited choosing their favorite animals, we decided that we'd go as the Zoo and Mommy would appropriately go as the zookeeper!

We had so much fun dressing up in our costumes. Fortunately, most of them were pretty warm as we had a cold Halloween this year.  I wanted them to experience an "old fashioned Halloween" complete with door to door trick-or-treating, which sadly seems to be a tradition that's on it's way out.  We were able to find several houses in our neighborhood that had their lights on and gave out candy (in fact, we ended up with much more candy than we needed). 

From our zoo to yours, here's hoping you had a wonderful Halloween too!
