Happy Halloween!

“I was robbed!  I spent the whole night waiting for the Great Pumpkin, when I could have been out for tricks or treats.  Halloween is over, and I missed it!”

~It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

HaPpY HaLlOwEeN!

Too Many Treats?

With Halloween right around the corner I am already dreading the sugar high aftermath.  I always sort through the treats that my kids get on Halloween and leave some for them, stash some for me, but I always end up with tons left over.  I recently found this clipping in a magazine and immediately thought about all of the left over candy that I always end up throwing away.  This year I can box it up and know that some VeRy deserving HeRoEs will enjoy a little piece of my children’s HaLlOwEeN while fighting to keep our freedom.

Halloween Decorations

This Halloween my son gave me a challenge.  Instead of my usual cute Halloween decorations he wanted spooky and scary decorations for our home.  I searched Pinterest and found some  ideas, but decided to give them a twist of my own!

This skeleton wreath was made with items bought at local dollar stores and Target.  First I covered a styrofoam wreath with Halloween ribbon.  The next step was to hot glue the plastic skeletons to the wreath.  It was SuPeR easy to make and my son was ThRiLlEd with the results!

For the light up ghosts I turned metal tomato cages upside down and wrapped them in Christmas lights.  Next I covered them in a twin sized sheet cut in half and glued felt pieces for the eyes.  I made two ghosts since I have two children, but you can make an entire ghost family with such an EaSy project!

Happy Haunting!

{Let The Holidays Begin!!}

Tonight Lara’s family and my family hung out together.  It’s TrAdiTioN.  We’ve been doing this on October 31st ever since we met back in 2009.

I’m not into Halloween, but I really am into ThanKsgiVinG AnD ChriStmAs!!  In fact, tomorrow is the first official day of the HoLiDaYs (according to me).   I actually saw my first Christmas commerical today!  Tomorrow I will break out the Christmas tunes and maybe even start hanging up the Christmas WrEaThS in the windows.  So, on that note, I want to leave you with this Christmas tune.

HoLiDaY ChEeRs!!
