Halloween. Such a fun holiday.
However, when you’ve got children chomping at the bit to get out the door to trick-or-treat after a long day of work, it can be quite chaotic.
Let me tell you a little Halloween tale about our family.
It was 4:15 and I just got home from work. Trick or treat started in 45 minutes and the kids wanted to get out the door to get as much candy as possible.
At the same time, they (and that includes the husband) were asking about dinner.
While they were chattering about going trick or treating and asking about dinner, I realized that part of Carter’s chicken costume had come apart.
That chicken costume.
Let me quickly tell you about the chicken costume.
I spent about a week perfecting this costume.
It consisted of two onesies sewn together, stuffed with stuffing (just the right amount of stuffing which was a trial and error thing), and wrapped with two huge feather boas.
I had to sew on the feather boas and it was one of the most frustrating things I had ever done.
The onesies were white, the feathers were white and the thread was white, so it was very difficult to tell where I had already sewn and where I hadn’t.
Long story short, my house was covered in feathers and when I was done with it I was so glad.
So, imagine my excitement (or lack there of) when I realized 45 minutes prior to trick-or-treat that his costume had come un-sewn.
Hyper kids, hungry kids, and a costume that needed my attention, all with 45 minutes to spare.
I told the kids to take a few minutes and relax with their tablets while I figure out my life at the moment.
Hyper kids? Check.
I grabbed the needle and thread and figured out what I needed to do to make the chicken costume whole again.
Fixed costume? Check.
All I needed to do now was figure out dinner.
I didn’t have a bunch of time to cook and we had no leftovers in the refrigerator, so I pulled out a Red Baron® Pizza from the freezer, which is always a favorite in my house.
Hungry kids? Check.
I fixed the costume with time to spare and we got to sit down as a family for a few minutes to enjoy a hot Red Baron® Classic Pepperoni Pizza, fresh from the oven.
The kids were dressed and fed and ready to go, right in time for trick-or-treating.
We were able to enjoy our night out in the neighborhood thanks to my quick fix sewing skills and Red Baron® Pizza!
