Isn't it too early for Halloween?



I was at the mall the other day and couldn't believe one of my favorite kid stores has Halloween costumes already. It is still August isn't it? It seems like every year the stores start a little bit earlier with their holiday merchandise. I remember when I was a kid they didn't even bring out Christmas merchandise until the day after Thanksgiving.

You be the judge do you like that it is starting earlier every year?

These cute costumes are available at Gymboree

I am just waiting for the Christmas decorations to be up at the mall. Maybe next week, I am sure they want to space them out a little. And we all know they totally skip over Thanksgiving.

Either way Halloween is my favorite holiday, so the earlier they start the better!

We start planning our Halloween costumes the day after Halloween is over, so I guess I'm not complaining!

No it's not...seriously I have been stressing about this. I need a great idea for our fam to dress up for lil Boston's first Halloween. This was actually going to be my next KIC post. Have any good idea??

Oh my gosh! That pirate costume just kills me!! Sooo cute!! Thanks for pointing these out - I hardly ever go into that store. The prices scare me sometimes ;)

They do start early and the sales are closer to Halloween. I guess getting outfits is all in the timing or shopping a year early so you don't have to worry about it.

I don't even shop at Gymboree, but I noticed these myself last week--CRAZY! (Cute, but crazy.)

I know I can't believe how fast stores put up their seasonal stuff. Our Hobby Lobby here already has some of their Christmas stuff up already.
