Hey everyone! Today is a VERY rainy day in Oregon…. the rainiest day we’ve had in a long time. Luckily for us we have no plans this evening and I’ve already got my sweats on, cozy socks on my feet, and a apple cinnamon candle burning on the table. The kids just got home from school and I still have no idea what we are having for dinner tonight because I’ve been happily looking up Halloween things to help get me in the spirit of things. Can you believe that its only 9 days away?
Ever since Anika was born I’ve loved Halloween. We never celebrated it when I was a kid, but I think it’s fun to let the kids dress up and create crafts and treats – we don’t do much spooky stuff around here (yet!). I’ve still got to buy candy and make trick-or-treat bags for all of the little ghosts and goblins that visit our front door. If you’ve followed along for a while now you know that we get a whole lot of trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood. It’s one of the nice things about living in a small town, everyone knows your neighborhood, all of the kids know each other, so it’s almost like a big block party. I’ll be making 300 goody bags this year.
I’m also working on a little cake project that I’m going to share on here next week, and I needed a bit more baking inspiration so I collected 14 different Halloween treats from Foodie.com and decided to share them with you too in case you needed a little more inspiration yourself!
What I love about all of these treat ideas is that they are all so simple to make and the kids would be excited to see any of them out for a party! (Okay, maybe I would too!)
Tomorrow I’ll continue my October celebrations by attended not one, but two Pumpkin Patch field trips with the kids. At least they overlap and are at the same Pumpkin Patch so the day isn’t split up. Time to break out the rain boots and hats – I think it’s going to be a wet visit!
What are your plans for Halloween this year? Are you having a party? I’d love to see Halloween food or party ideas that you’ve done – if you want you can link up your photos and posts in the comment section!
Until tomorrow –
