Extreme Halloween Closed Today for Tropical Storm Ernesto

Tropical Storm Ernesto
Extreme Halloween, Inc.'s offices in Dania Beach, FL closed early today so that staff and family could prepare for Tropical Storm Ernesto, which is headed our way. We plan to re-open tomorrow, Wednesday, August 30th at 2pm EST as soon as the storm has cleared the area. At that time, weather and conditions permitting, we will resume our shipping and customer service operations. Some express packages might be delayed by one day, but we do not expect any major problems like we had with Hurricane Wilma last year. She hit one week before Halloween and caused major damage to our roof, power outages & tore up our phone lines.

This year will be different! We should not see that kind of damage with tropical storm force winds this time. I will keep you posted as we have wireless connections and satellite backup connections in place this year. Even if there is damage, our customers will not suffer, we will be up and running with our back up plan and customers will get their packages in a timely fashion.

Extreme Halloween, Inc. is located in Dania Beach, which is in Broward County, FL in between Miami and Ft. Lauderdale. Click here to see our local Doppler radar activity!

Baby Lobster CostumeScarecrow costumes for babies, pea in the pod costumes and baby lobster are top picks for this year!

Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) August 29, 2006 - They may not be able to trick or treat yet, but your little ones are sure to look sweet in Unique Baby Halloween Costumes.

Rather than one more Yoda or Cinderella running around, moms and dads are looking for unique baby costumes so their little ones don't look like every other baby at the party.
Shari McConahay, Vice President of Marketing for leading Halloween Costume website www.AnniesCostumes.com, said their variety of unique baby Halloween costumes are appealing to many parents.

"I was just speaking with a customer who said that our unique selection was important to her because one year her son was a care bear and none of the parents at a party could tell who their child was," she said "There were so may care bears, they had to identify their kids by their shoes."
So, forget the old classic pumpkin or princess costume for your baby this year, and instead try these ideas to stand out this Halloween:

The Baby Lobster: Look good enough to eat in this bunting costume that includes stuffed claws, tail and tentacles. http://anniescostumes.com/walkeranimal.htm

Pea in the Pod: Your baby is sure to stand out in the "crop" with this adorable Halloween costume. This costume is available in standard and deluxe models in bunting size for newborn.
The deluxe version has removable foam peas: http://anniescostumes.com/newbornchar.htm

Rock a Bye Baby: Any Rock & Roll star would be proud of any baby wearing this unique baby Halloween costume that includes a hat with attached hair, bunting with attached feet and stuffed arms with guitar.
