{ We’ve Been “Bewitched” }

One of our new favorite “movies” to watch from Netflix is the 1960’s television series Bewitched.  The kids think it’s so funny, and I love that it’s a clean show they can watch. About a month ago, the girls decided that they wanted to be witches for Halloween. We are not into the gory, scary, side of Halloween, so I kind of put them off, hoping I could change their minds. Day after day they made plans of fabulous costumes, all which involved being witches. One day after shopping at Target, I came across these cute socks, and decided to give into all the witch madness around our house. We decided we would make our witches, the nicest, cutest witches around.

My oldest witch, Brianna, made these cute flowers to put on top of some of the girls hats. They turned out so good. We whipped up some capes to match the socks, found some perfectly crooked sticks in the back yard to use for our sparkly brooms, painted each girls nails to match their capes, and viola- four cute witches ready for the big night.

      A couple weeks before Halloween, the kids were trying to find a nice quiet activity to do during Sunday nap time so I could rest. Brianna decided the girls needed some witch lessons before the big day, so the Starbuck Witch Academy was set up. At the end of nap time they each had their own report card in hand, certifiably showing they were fit to be witches. I love the cute names they came up with, and the fun grading scale. Let the witching begin!
