I remember when Hailey was born, just as the fall season was starting in 2011. I was filled with the excitement of bringing the holidays to life for my baby girl and gleefully went all out for fall and Christmas decorations. I’m sure my three month old at the time really appreciated the plethora of twinkly lights and all, but it doesn’t hold a candle to how a four year old feels and reacts about the impending holiday season.
This year Hailey has been talking about Halloween for months. Months. She’s decided on her costume (pirate princess) and giddily tells every stranger we run into about it. In fact, she is pretty firm that Halloween is her favorite holiday.
Whether she changes her tune when Santa comes to town is up for discussion, but in the meantime the orange and black and spooky cats are ruling the roost at the Dixon house. And you know what? It’s contagious.
I’ve jumped on the bandwagon in full force by lighting my pumpkin spiced candles and pulling out our fall leaves and sparkly pumpkins. I was also stoked to discover this secret weapon, which has taken our holiday fun to the next level!
Let me tell you about Zazzle.
Zazzle is a marketplace where you can custom design nearly anything including notebooks, lunchboxes, iphone cases and more. Recently they’ve added a Halloween section with hundred of items and designs ready to choose from and make your own.
Y’all, it is SO simple to navigate and customize. It has really upped the ante on our Halloween decor fun!
I loved the holidays as a kid myself, but I really think I might be getting even more out of being the one that gets to create the magic for my girls. We’ve been really getting into it this year with Halloween crafts and Halloween songs (this is a simple and cute one that Hailey enjoys demonstrating for Kaitlyn and here is a catchy one that introduces some of typical Halloween monsters).
To take it one step further, we ordered a few customized items with the girls’ names and wow, game over, Hailey is psyched!
As difficult as it is to explain to a four year old that you can’t ring someone’s doorbell and get candy just any old time, I sure do love feeding off her holiday joy.
With fall weather here and the holiday season upon us, I can confidently say we are ready to bring on the fun!
If you’re looking for a few items to bring Halloween into your home, I highly suggest checking out Zazzle’s Halloween Shop. It’s quick, cute and convenient, as you don’t have to drive all over town to find good deals on decorations. Give it a try and let them deliver the cuteness right to your front door!
