Halloween has passed and it was an other very successful year for our family (photographic proof). I’ve already started planning next year. Part of the planning process involves making sure the kids are on board and excited about it. Last year Brett took that very seriously and played PacMan with Iddo on a semi-regular basis so she’d go along with our plan. It worked.
I already have an idea for next year and when I proposed it to Iddo she was initially excited. It’s an idea that would allow the kids to have input about what they want to be while still maintaining a family theme and it’s a theme they’re generally excited about anyway. I figured I’d nailed it!
And then Iddo thought for a minute and suggested we be the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta for Halloween next year.
First off, yeah for that making an impression on her when we went last year. We’re already planning on going again next fall.
Second off, I’m pretty sure I could actually make that happen.
Third off, way to think outside the box on that one kid!
The thing is though, she doesn’t realize there is a box to think outside of. Which is really awesome. We’d like to hide that box from her for as long as possible and see what else she can come up with.
