Halloween Family Traditions

Yesterday was Halloween, my favorite holiday of the year. The candy, the costumes, the decorations – I love it all. And I especially enjoy the family traditions we’ve created. Halloween has been a difficult day for my family since my Aunt Monica passed away in 2002. That makes me extra appreciative to be able to give my cousin Cheryl and my dad big hugs in person. Just like last year, the cousins joined our kids to go trick-or-treating in our {Read More}

Family Time: Pumpkin carving with Pumpkin Masters

It’s October, which means pumpkin carving and pumpkin seeds and pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin pie and ALL THE THINGS PUMPKIN!  I admit, I love just about pumpkin everything. I’m even snacking on chips with pumpkin salsa right now. If you shop at Target or Walmart or craft stores or grocery stores, you’ve probably bought a Pumpkin Masters carving kit at some point. They’re easier to use than kitchen knives, so I’ve been buying them for years to carve our family {Read More}

Am I getting better at Halloween crafts? #StarburstCandyCorn

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Starburst. I received product samples to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating. Two years ago I attempted my last Halloween craft. I tried to make a ghost out of modge podge and Kleenex and a purple plate. Stuff like that reminds me why I’m not a craft blogger. Then I remember how much I absolutely LOVE to get crafty and have fun. Whether {Read More}

So I bought this super awesome shirt and couldn’t wait to show it off to Mykl. Here’s a little peek into what happens at our house after hours. Me: What do you think? Mykl: What is that? Is it a shirt with a cape? Me: Yes! (fumbles to pull hood up) And a face mask. Mykl: Oh, the face mask is cool. Is it for Halloween? Me: (puzzled) No, why? Mykl: Well, where are you going to where it? Me: {Read More}

Sad Halloween Memories

Halloween is by far my most favorite holiday out of the year. I absolutely love to decorate and dress up and host parties and all that jazz. Now that I get to share all of those things with Levi, I think it’s even more fun. Unfortunately, Halloween also comes with some very dark memories for me. In 2002, my Aunt Monica passed away in a car accident. As soon as I got the call from my grandmother, I left MN {Read More}

Fun Halloween Party Ideas For Kids

Once you become a parent you start to realize that some celebrations are not as much for you as they are for the kids. Jason and I have always argued about this – he absolutely loves to trick or treat with Levi because he knows I’ll let him keep most of Levi’s candy. Mykl also loves Halloween, but he’s more about the decorations and costumes. He’s already told me he wants to turn the front yard into a graveyard. Over {Read More}
