A Great Hand Out Idea for Halloween – College Savings Registry @GradSave #halloween

Have you ever created a baby registry?

How about a registry for a wedding or maybe your child’s birthday?

GradSave is about the same concept, you create a college savings registry by going to GradSave.com and connect a 529 Plan or prepaid college savings plan to your GradSave account. Once you have your GradSave account page created you can share this with anyone; let’s say Uncle Mike lives in Texas but you live in Vermont. How can Uncle Mike give to his niece or nephew each holiday season or birthday time? Well, Uncle Mike can put a gift of money into his niece or nephews college savings plan by utilizing the GradSave College Savings Registry that you created. I know many elders who would much rather give the gift of savings to a child than the gift of a materialistic item, for that is how they can pass along a future for their younger generation relatives.

With all that in mind, why not pass along the idea of saving for college by placing $10 coupons in your trick or treat bowl this Halloween? You will be able to educate others on how they can setup their own GradSave College Savings Registry and in turn they will be passing along the idea to their children that saving money is important. I personally wasn’t ever taught to budget money nor save money, but I eventually did learn through trial and error. Would you not rather a child learn through example rather than trial and error?  I think it’s important to teach children to save at a young age so that they learn the concept that money doesn’t grow on trees.

College is an important advancement for your child, whether they go to college for some off he wall career idea or they go for what you had hoped they went for, you must start saving now to be able to afford the ever rising cost of college tuition’s.

GradSave’s College Savings Registry really makes it easier to save and allow family to donate to the child’s college fund from afar.  This Halloween you can go to GradSave Happy Halloween Page and sign up to register for your child’s registry today or you can simply print off these coupons to hand out to your trick or treaters this season. Not handing out trick or treating items this year? If you are attending any Halloween event you can print off these images and do what I did; place them on cardboard or card stock and hand them out at the event.

Someone Found the Halloween Stash

I tried to hide the Halloween candy but anyone who knows my youngest, knows that is utterly impossible in this house with him.

K-monster found the candy stash and now it’s game on with candy time…

A Happy Halloween it Was #halloween

We were all prepared, Mama had zero clue what her kids would look like in their Halloween costumes because Kiara picked hers up with her Dad and the boys ended up getting theirs last weekend with their Dad too. So it was a fun surprise to have this in my house on Halloween night …

The boys and their Dad were all dressed up ready to meet up with Miss Kiara and her Dad to go trick or treating together. It was planned to be a fun evening with three kiddos walking together while my two ex’s and I walked along watching the kiddos having a blast.

What the night ended up being was a bowl full of fun, drama and ended with a screaming four year old. Although the trick or treating itself went awesome, the boys are too young and hate walking so much so that they only lasted a short period of time while my daughter was lucky to be able to continue along on the walk of trick or treating because she was in her Dad’s hands that evening. Meaning it was his evening to have her overnight.

The boys, on the other hand, were done. They were dropping to the ground, so tired they were complaining they couldn’t walk any longer and so the walk back to the car was painfully patience trying and the ride home with a screaming four year old really nearly put me in tears but seriously put me with a massive headache. The good thing was? The four year old passed out within just a few moments of being laid down to bed, because he was that exhausted.

The kids ended up with a ton of candy that  I am now seeking hiding spots for …

Jimmy Kimmel Parent Viewers Say “I ate all your Halloween Candy”

Although this is just wrong on so many levels, it is also quite funny! I had tears in my eyes after watching this video because I can so see my children responding in such ways as this but what made me die the hardest in laughter was the last two children, one of which says “what the heck” then proceeds to tell the mother that “she will get a tummy ache” for eating two bags of Halloween candy. This is just quite simply priceless.

Would you do this to your kids? Tell me what you thought of the video!

K Monster, Fighter Pilot and a Princess

You know I couldn’t get one good picture of all three kids, I mean I guess that’s how it goes being a Mom of three completely different children …

This was my sons first year going trick or treating. K Monster is two and Fighter Pilot AJ is four years of age. My daughter is eight years of age but since I never really got into taking her, she always went with her father who dresses up and everything! They always had fun. This year Princess Ki wanted to go with AJ because it was his first year, they have become pretty close.

So as the time neared Daddy worked on the costume for K Monster, because we didn’t get him a real costume yet, and had only tossed around a couple of ideas …. the monster idea stuck. We were all to meet up with Princess Ki & her father at my Mom’s house so she could get a pic of all three grandkids before we went out. Again, the kids didn’t really corporate, I will have to see what she got for pics of the munchkins soon!

I finally had the boys ready with the help from their father, wow, that was not fun! AJ was mad because K was a monster and we had to put some make up on his face, but of course AJ told me he doesn’t like pictures and he refused to stand still for one…. hence the reason they are running away and hiding from me here …

Finally we headed out to the car to get our trick or treating groove on!

Oh the boys had a blast! I mean a blast! Of course Baby K was right into the K Monster outfit with the growl and everything with it! It was hilarious and he even was so funny that this older couple started taking pictures of him growling at them! We died of laughter all night long! That kid is a RIOT!

After a few houses of people letting you have unlimited candy for your candy bag we started getting to houses that were only allowing you to have one piece of candy. That didn’t go over too well with the already tired K Monster. He is two years old so he also forgets his manners often and when a lady or two or three told him he could pick ONE CANDY out of a HUGE BOWL of CANDY well he had to say something about it … he proceeded to stomp once and make a LOUD mean growl sound as he gave the lady a glare! I died of laughter again, but also explained Baby K, dude, seriously, it’s okay. Say thank you and let’s go.

The first night of trick or treating with my sons was COLD but I laughed so hard that I completely forgot about the cold air. How did your trick or treating night go?
