Halloween Family Dinner & a Movie Night

Another one of our Fall Bucket List items on our list before baby gets here
was to have a Halloween themed Dinner & Movie night!
Tuesdays are kinda crowded with activities we have preschool then soccer practice.
but I was able to get everything ready and prepped while Lexi was at preschool..
We decided we probably shouldn't skip soccer so we waited to have the dinner and movie
after practice.. she didn't have to be up early for preschool the next morning so we didn't mind her staying up past her bed time! Luckily when we put her down she was out cold in no time!


Another reason for doing it after soccer practice was that it was dark by then
so we got to enjoy our dinner under a black light!
It made it extra spoooky!
We just stuck with my favorite Fall soup, Chicken Tortilla Soup with Bat shaped tortillas!
It was delicious!!

After Dinner we got into our pjs and headed upstairs for our movie night! 
We streamed Netflix and found some Halloween shows we could watch
along with Halloween treats to eat!
We started it out with Scared Shrekless.. but for a four year old little girl
and 15 minutes into it she was a little too scared for the epsiodes!
so I convinced her to trade that in for watching the Munster's,
a favorite of mine from childhood :)

Some other good Halloween Family Friendly Netflix Shows are:
Curious George Halloween BOOFEST
Casper's Scare School
Barney Halloween Party
Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated
Goosebumps (for ages 7+)
Magic School Bus in the Haunted House (Season 1 Episode 8)
