Boo!

Preparing for Julia's 1st Trick or Treat was fun but deliberate.  We had a few considerations:

  • Because Julia is prone to prickly heat, her costume should not be too tight and full of lace.  We thought it would be difficult but we found the perfect outfit for her!  A bumble bee costume (which was her dad's idea, by the way) from the Bumblebee and Company!  It's a sleeveless onesies with wings and black cloth shoes.  We thought the head gear would make her sweat but the weather cooperated and Julia wore it for 2 straight hours!
Julia was awarded "Best in Costume" in the little girls category
  • The venue should not be too crowded.  Julia is only 8 months old, she's too young to participate in huge Halloween events sponsored by malls.  So, Julia participated in the Gymboree Serendra's Trick or Treat activity.  The fee (P1,000 for non members and P800 for members) was all worth it because:
    1. The venue was air-conditioned and had a play area.
    2. The fee was inclusive of a 2-hour games and fun activities for participants.
    3. The event was limited to 20 participants only.
    4. Food for kids is provided.
    5. Free use of the gym play area after the event.
    6. Teachers at Gymboree spearheaded the trick or treat-ing in various stores at Serendra and Bonifacio High Street.  Participants were given priority over other kids!
  • The event should be on a Sunday afternoon.
Julia had fun but Don and I enjoyed it too!  Now, what to do with all the candies?!
