Halloween BAM Style

Halloween BAM Style


All summer long my boys have been freaking out over anything that was Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles.  The preschooler has the book bag,  the folder, the pencils, bubble blower – – I can go on and on!

So it was a no brainer when I went to get their costumes what they would be. The little one, even in his growing speech says “Turrr-toohhh” everytime he sees one.


We attended a Halloween party last weekend which was so lackluster compared to last year. I was just so busy during the weekend I decided to go to the local party instead of the big one in park slope. Yes,  I will be in park slope next year.

There was a bouncy house. Which my boys went nuts for! Good thing we were the earliest ones so we had the entire house to ourselves.





When all the big insane kids came we went into a box (which I’m not sure what it was for but daddy and the boys had fun playfighting)


After that it was time to pay the pumpkins, and you guys know I’m not crafty so I just let them go wild.






There was another party on Halloween at his school that invited friends and family so I was able to see how he interacts with his classmates and teachers for the first time.

I’ll  be honest,  I expected the worst.  I got the exact opposite. He was raising his hand, answering questions,  listening, dancing all of it. I had such a proud mommy moment for sure.



Of course the baby came along for the ride.

  1. Teenage mutant ninja turtle, turtle in a half shell turtle power sorry that came to mind when I saw the pictures. They are so cute my daughter actually loves this show and wanted to be a pink turtle for Halloween but I could not find one and I am not crafty enough to put something together.

  2. Your boys are too cute for words dressed as the Ninja Turtles. I still can’t get over how that has come back to being popular since my brother was a huge fan as a kid and he is now 30 years old. Loved it though and I am so with you, if my husband wasn’t so talented with carving our pumpkins would remained with those dollar tree stickers!! Looked like a great Halloween though for sure :)

  10. I can’t get enough of your kids. They are just too cute. My boys are into all the Ninja Turtle stuff as well so I feel your pain! And isn’t it funny how different the kids can be in class? I’m floored every time (in a good way) by my kids behavior at school. I’m hoping it lasts!!

  14. What a great Halloween celebration. Love the boys costume and the baby saying turtle, too funny. Glad you had a great time celebrating with the boys.

    PS – that pic of your hubby with the baby all smiles just melted my heart.

    PPS – you need to get from behind the camera and get in the pic girl. Try selfies, they are actually pretty fun :)

  16. Love all the pictures! Painting pumpkins seems so much easier than carving them! I think that’s the way we will go next year! Love the costumes and Kayden loves the TMNT too! It’s amazing how kids act so different in the classroom v. at home. SMH!

  20. The boys are so cute in their Ninja Turtles costumes! Our Halloween was pretty low key. The Mr had to work which left us carless. But Moo still dressed up a Princess. JJ is not a fan of costumes or clothes in general. We watched movies and stuffed our faces!
