This Halloween, don't just play the game Twister, wear it!!
It's that time of year again when the kids are waiting by the door for the UPS truck to bring them their Halloween costumes. Well yesterday afternoon their prayers were answered with the ringing of the doorbell! I almost think they are as excited about the arrival of their Halloween costumes as they are Christmas morning!
Caden, my 11 year old son was just a bit cooler than his little sisters when they heard the doorbell ring. Olivia and Sydney nearly knocked him down running for the door (the two dogs were smart enough to stay out of the way)! Once the box was opened and all the costumes were ceremoniously handed out, it was showtime! (Just a little fyi - these are not pictures of my children, they're just pictures of the costumes that we ordered online. However, the costumes look just like this in "real life".)
First we have my 6 year old daughter Olivia who loves the Power Rangers. She started watching it a couple years ago with her brother Caden. Since then Caden has outgrown the whole Power Ranger thing, but not Olivia, she still watches them religiously. So this year, her costume choice was simple, she wanted to be the Pink Power Ranger.
Next, we have my 8 year old daughter Sydney who had a little bit harder time deciding on what she wanted to be this year. But after many hours and days browsing through the website of HalloweenExpress.com, she decided that she wanted to go with the Hip Witch Costume (which by the way looks adorable on her). I couldn't believe all the cute witch costumes they had. No wonder she had such a hard time deciding!
Finally we have my 11 year old son, Caden. He had a hard time deciding between the Optimus Prime costume or being a Gangster. The minute he realized he could carry a plastic Tommy Gun with the gangster costume, his decision was made. The costume looked great on him and once we put on the Fedora hat and fake jumbo cigar the costume was awesome! He loves it!
I'm sure you've been sitting on the edge of your seats just waiting to see what they picked out to wear this year; so there you have it! The kids costumes look amazing and they all fit perfectly. Now if only they can keep from wearing them BEFORE Halloween even gets here!
This Halloween let your daughter show how pretty and graceful a bug can really be!
Xbox 360Crackdown http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crackdown Ok, first problem here – you’re cybernetically altered. Or in other words, made better; you know like that kid at college: faster, stronger, smarter. But the weapons are comparable to what you’d find in the city, and includes explosives! So a good starting point, but don’t try to run as fast. Fable II http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fable_II Hmmm, one problem here, it’s all swords, arrows and ye olde time rifles and guns. Have you ever gone toe to toe with a zombie? From what I understand, they have unquenching thirsts for brains and super strength (even though I’m sure brains doesn’t give the much sustenance). A weak game to lean how to defend yourself. Gears of War 2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gears_of_War_2 Better guns. This’ll help. And also, it emphasises covering from the enemy and destroying them. All good so far. However, some of the guns are a bit far fetched – can you really expect to be wielding a mortar launcher in New Hampshire? Although they do have a flame thrower, and if Small Solders taught us anything, it’s that anyone can make one of them. Definitely one you need to perfect. Halo 3 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halo_3 How could we not include Halo? Everyone wants to play it and be the chef. Sorry I mean chief. But more importantly – would it train you for the all important zombie uprising? Well, no. Those dudes in Halo have all manner of funky weapons and armour. If you’re left on a street in your underwear with a prodding stick as defence, how would Halo help - be something nice to think about as you get brain fried? Forza Motorsport 2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forza_Motorsport_2 So how will this train you to blow a head clean off I hear you ask. Well it won’t, but we all know that there always needs to be a highly skilled get away driver waiting in the wings, so you need to know how to handle high-performance cars. And this is a perfect game for that. In fact, that’s the only plus of a zombie world, the chance to get your hands onto this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koenigsegg_CCGT#CCGT
Now, onto the PS3Heavenly Sword http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heavenly_Sword When you’re fighting zombies there’s always some hotty hanging about. She’ll be angry and stand offish, but will (if you’re good with guns and junk) warm to you. So you need to be good at those sort of things and prepare yourself. Heavenly Sword, although is too heavy on the close-cutting weapons, but at least prepares you for your flirting with babes who like swords and funny outfits. But in the real world – would it help fight zombies? Probably not! Killzone 2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killzone_2 This is more like it, Mr Sony - focusing on Guerrilla warfare. Apart from that crap bit in I am Legend, we know these zombies are dumb brain-eating drones, so any tactics that you can throw into the fighting mix would give you a great advantage. Teaching you this, and with cool outfits and decent guns, I think you should get into training with this one now. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metal_Gear_Solid_4:_Guns_of_the_Patriots More stealth! I think the PS3 is sneaking (very stealthily) into the lead! One problem though, the hero has a suit that is like a chameleons and mimics everything around it. You’ll be in your office rags, and if you’re lucky, a set of nike trainers. Don’t rely on hiding in the background as odour de brain is a powerful aphrodisiac for the zombies Resistance 2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resistance_2 Perfect! This is almost a handbook on destroying freakziods, or the ‘nutritionally challenged.’ The game follows one man set off to fight zombie things in a wasteland. You need to be an expert at this game. Dark Kingdom http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Untold_Legends:_Dark_Kingdom More hotties, and more swords. It’s based on the hack and slash technique of gaming, so I’m told. Well that means you’ll again have to get up close and personal with the zombies. It also includes magic. Do you want to say abracadabra just before you’re eaten? I’d not bother with this one.
Conclusion – or which one’s bestWell, stealth is the key to staying alive, so I’d say that you should get a PS3. More games that teach you not to just blow them all up, but to duck, crouch, hide – and flirt with hotties. So if you want to prepare the invasion on October 31st, get a PS3 – and on your downtime – watch blu-ray movies.

Growing up, one of my favorite movies of all time was Alice In Wonderland. I must have seen it a hundred times over the years. Now my children love it and I watch it with them. What I like about it is that even my son, Caden enjoys it. There are some really cool characters that the guys like. It's a great family movie as adventure and fantasy come together. Today, Alice is once again in the spotlight with Tim Burton's version of Alice In Wonderland being released on March 5, 2010. The trailers are out and the movie looks wild! This time Alice is 19 years old and returns to Wonderland, the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny. The Mad Hatter is being played by Johnny Depp and he plays all those eccentric roles wonderfully! It should be a great movie! What I love about it, is that the characters in the movie make for great Halloween costumes. You've got character costumes such as; Alice, Queen of Hearts, Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat costume just waiting to be a great group theme for Halloween! Check out all the Alice In Wonderland Halloween costumes at HalloweenExpress.com and don't be late - October 31st is a very important date! Look no further for other great Halloween costume ideas!

Disney has gone and made another wonderful movie called "The Princess & The Frog". Even though it won't be released in theaters until December 11th, the movie trailers have been out for some time. My daughter saw it the other night and can't wait to see it when it comes out!What's so cute about this movie is that it's actually an animated musical. It's about a prince by the name of Naveen who comes to New Orleans and is transformed into a frog by an evil voodoo doctor. He mistakes a girl named Tiana for a princess and has her kiss him to break the spell. Unfortunately Tiana turns into a frog too! They make their way through the Louisiana Bayou in search of the good voodoo priestess while making many friends along the way. It looks like it's going to be a great movie for the whole family! I'm sure at Halloween you'll see quite a few little Princess Tiana costumes out trick-or-treating. Disney princess costumes! Disney has made sure that little girls all over the world fall in love with the princess. You'll also see Snow White and Princess Aurora costumes from Sleeping Beauty since both of these beautiful princesses were kissed by a handsome prince. Although it was much better than being kissed by a frog, I have a feeling Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen will still live happily ever after!
