Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween indeed!

Over the weekend the boys and I whipped pumpkin carving out-of-the-way.

Well, technically it was just the boys as I left it all up to Mister Mister since I lack the interest skill that he has for pumpkin carving. šŸ˜‰

He did a fantastic job as always but the clear winnerĀ was Lovey and his pumpkin.Meet Mr. Potato Head’s distant relative,

Mr. pumpkin Head! A few more hoursĀ and trick or treating will commence!

I hope you all have aĀ happy and safe Halloween!

We will talkĀ tomorrow, once everyone emerges from their sugar comas that is. šŸ˜‰

Pumpkin Fun

What a pumpkin fun-filled week we had!

Warning!… Pumpkin picture overload. šŸ™‚

Mister Mister, Lovey and IĀ took a trip toĀ a localĀ pumpkin patch which has became a family tradition each year.

Does it look familiar? It is the same one we visited last year.

Lovey chose which wheel barrow to use.

And hitched a ride from Daddy in it.He picked out his very own pumpkin.There always seems to be something about pumpkin patches and the gorgeous colors of fallĀ which yield some of the most precious photos of Lovey. ā™„

WeĀ  posed with silly photo props like a scarcrow family.And a giant witch.Before heading home we went for a hay ride around the pumpkin patch.

Later in the week Lovey and I took a trip to a different pumpkin patch with Mister Mister’s family–his sister in law, nieces and nephew.

We experienced pumpkin launching for the first time.Some of the pumpkins appeared to have been previously launched but still had some life left in them.It turned out to be a fun, unique experience and we were all glad that we waited out the long line.After the pumpkin launching the kids burned off some energy climbing on the hay bales.

We sipped on our complimentary hot coco on the hay ride to the main attraction–the pumpkin patch!There were roamingĀ fields of pumpkins for the picking.

The kidsĀ spent far too long diligently searching the above mentioned fields in pursuit ofĀ the perfectĀ pumpkins. šŸ˜‰All was in good fun though and everyone was pleased with their choice in the end.Afterwards, we took the pumpkins over to the kid’s Nana’s house for decorating.Yes, Lovey really was that excited to decorate his. haha.All finished!Our pumpkin filled week ended with an amazingĀ sunset and many special memories to last!

Halloween Goody Bags

You know all the sweet treats I have madeĀ this week…

Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows. Fall Mix. Pumpkin Patch Cake Pops. Well I’ve had a master plan for them all.

I bought these fun Wilton Halloween goody bags and filled them with one of each.I threw in some candy for good measure because who doesn’t need even more candy this time of year! šŸ˜‰I also slipped in a Happy Halloween card which features sweet, Lovey in his Elmo Costume. šŸ™‚Goody bags areĀ all ready for family and friends this Halloween!

Lovey’s Halloween Basket

If there is one thing everyone knows about Lovey it’s that he can not get enough of Elmo.

He loves that little red furry monster.

So I’m sure you can guess what he is going to be for Halloween this year. šŸ˜‰

Remember Lovey’s Elmo Easter basket?

Elmo wore bunny ears and Lovey thought it was just the coolest thing on Easter Morning.

Ā I lucked up and found an Elmo Halloween basket too!…Ā to complete his costume. šŸ™‚

This time Elmo is a little witch.It’s lined withĀ material thatĀ features Elmo and Abby Cadabby in their costumes.

So cute!I browsed the dollar section at Target and filled his basket with fun Halloween toys.They should occupy his time on Halloween until it is timeĀ to goĀ trick or treating!

Spider Halloween Craft-Tutorial

With one week left until Halloween it’s time to switch into Halloween mode and get some things ready for it.

The first item of businessĀ was Lovey’s Halloween craft.What we used to make it;As soon as I told him we were going to do a craft he hopped up at the dining table and was ready to get to it!

I wonder where he gets his crafty enthusiasm from?!I traced his hands and cut them out, minus the thumbs since spiders only haveĀ eight legs.Then IĀ glued the two hands together to form the spider’s body and Lovey attached its eyes.I cut a piece of medium length black ribbon so that the spider could be hung up.

I tied smaller pieces of orange ribbon around it to give it a more festive look.Lovey and his spider, I think we may call him… Spidey the spider. šŸ™‚And like all great works of art šŸ˜‰ to the refrigerator SpideyĀ went to be displayed for all to see!
