halloween in the slope

we were worried that halloween would not happen this year after sandy’s visit to nyc earlier this week but thankfully the show went on in park slope. families {thrilled to be outside} occupied stoops and businesses that had been closed this week due to the storm opened their doors to offer treats to giddy dressed up children.

sophie + hazel dressed up as their current obsessions РР fashion + mermaid barbie. the costumes were quite simple this year as we gathered most of the costume components from their current dress-up box. the newest additions to the costumes were the construction of the mattel barbie box and the shell bra.

however, despite the sugar, costumes and laughter – – devastation is still apparent in park slope. downed trees block entire streets and are the cause of the temporary closure of prospect park. we have only lived in park slope for a few months but are already overwhelmed by the sense of community that envelopes this neighborhood. it is an amazing sight to see people come together to add normalcy {in the wake of such a terrible disaster} to children on a much-anticipated evening.

– happy halloween –

heroes vs. villains . . . halloween crafts

before moving to new york i was only able to browse the creatively stocked pages of paper source’s catalog . . . but not anymore!! the girls and i recently discovered a paper source store located in soho and needless to say we were all instantly mesmerized by all of their offerings. impressively we walked away {this time} with only two sheets of heroes vs. villains wrapping paper! these lovely sheets {only $3.95 each} were the source of two separate halloween activities. an inexpensive way to spread halloween happiness!
