October is a breath of fresh air... Crisp, cool, invigorating air. Chilly snuggle-up-in-pajamas air.

Really, though, I love everything the month ushers in—pumpkin-spice lattés, colorful foliage, chunky sweaters, and picturesque seasonal scenes... And Halloween, of course!

As an adult without kids, I hated Halloween. But as an adult with children, I’m obsessed. From tricks to treats to candy-crafts to DIY pumpkin projects and the annual hunt for the must-have costume, I relish celebrating every moment of this frightfully fun month with my littles.

This year, I’ve decided to start a new tradition. This year, I'm giving my kids a fresh pair of festive Halloween PJs with a new spooky book. (Because, who doesn’t love some bedtime thrills and chills?)

Cuddle up with a flashlight under the blankets and spend some quality time reading together. I’ve matched the cutest pajamas with my favorite Halloween children’s books. From tales of witches and ghosts to mummies and more, there’s a perfect pairing for every little monster!

My big guy is obsessed with the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Halloween special (inspired by Rocky Horror!), and so I couldn't resist snagging this pair of Mickey jam-jams along with Mickey's Halloween, a lift-the-flap book.

My lady love has been teething up a storm as of late, and will sink her teeth into just about anything—food, toys, human flesh... Give her a tutu and she's pretty much a vampire ballerina. How adorable are these three-piece Cat & Jack jammies from Target! Of course, the book choice was a given: Vampirina Ballerina. It’s not easy being a Vampirina—you have to find a class that meets at night, you have to figure out how to look your best without being able to see your reflection in the mirror, and, most difficult of all, you have to combat the ultimate challenge: stage fright!
