Halloween things I love!

I love books and movies for the holidays. I don't "do" scary, so I like finding good Halloween movies and such that are "family friendly". I did a post last year about the books and movies I loved that Halloween and I have a new list for this year!

First is books!

Porkenstein

Super cute book! Landon brought it home from the library and we have read it every night this week! It's about a pig from "the three little pigs" and how after the big bad wolf ate his brothers, went on to try to make himself a new friend!

I got this one at Landon's book fair. It's a cute story and I LOVE the vibrant pictures! They really pull you in! It's about a boy who finds a note from his monster saying he will be back in a week. He goes on a hunt to find another monster to take his place! Super cute and funny!

Where's My Mummy?
Still a favorite from last year! About a little mummy who thinks hes not scared of anything. We love this one.



Next is movies! All of these are older ones that I watched when I was little and Landon just seems to like them as much as I did!

Ernest Scared Stupid
He LOVES this one! I could have sworn it was going to scare him but he will watch it over and over again if I let him! I can't really explain it....mostly because I haven't watched it in a while, but I do know it has something with trying to get rid of trolls. lol.

Little Monsters

This is another one that I didn't know if he was going to like. It's funny and got him away from being really scared of monsters in his room(at least for now). It's about a boy who catches a monster under his brothers bed and they become friends. It's not a really light and cheery one for the most part, but we like it.

Double, Double, Toil and Trouble


I LOVE this one. It's one that I used to watch every time it came on TV. It's about two twin sisters who find out they are witches. Super cute! Landon and I watched this for our movie night this past weekend!

If you have some suggestions of ones you like, let me know! I'm always on the look out for new ones!

A couple that we are watching and when I say we I mean me and my husband lol. But we watch some of the scary movies we grew up on too. A few are "Tower of Terror" and "Hocus Pocus" I don't know how Landon friendly they are but a few years and he will love them I'm sure.

I LOVE "Hocus Pocus!" I'm pretty sure Landon likes it to, but we haven't watched it this year so I felt it would be lying to add it to the list. lol. I DO have it set to record in a few days though!
