Halloween 2014

Lovey and I made doughnuts for breakfast. He added the Halloween sprinkles.IMG_1260-0
After picking Lovey up from school we had scary face pancakes at IHOP.

It was the first Halloween in years that Mister Mister was able to take off from work and spend with us so we were really happy to have the time with him.

And of course Lovey made out like a candy bandit. It was definitely one of our best Halloweens in years.

We didn’t make it to the pumpkin patch and carve pumpkins like we usually do but Lovey and I did manage to snag a few mini pumpkins from the grocery store and have a little painting party.

Pumpkins And Bats And Mice, Oh My!

 

Halloween decorating was a lot of fun this year.

*********************

Our fireplace mantle in the living room. h1Pumpkin topiareies that I made, probably my favorite addition this year.h2I scored both led candles and the witch pumpkin on clearance at Kohls last year a few months after Halloween so they were nearly 70% off!w3I repurpose our usual candles for every holiday by just adding ribbon. Cheap, quick and always adds a lot of holiday feel to every room. h3w1Bath & Body Works Trick Or Treat candles worked in perfectly.w2I added a little Halloween spirit to the kitchen as well.w4

Lovey’s favorite decoration, Mr. Pumpkin. He talks when you press his nose. He’s a pretty fun fella’ and I can see why he’s Lovey’s favorite.h4Our entry table all dressed up for Halloween.

I love being greeted by a table of cheer, whatever season it may be, when I first walk through our door. It’s always the first area that I decorate and the last one that I put away until the next year. h5w6I brought the wreath in that I made last year from hanging on the front door and found it a new home on the entry mirror.w5I was so pleased with our stairs. Cute and just a touch of creepy with the mice cut outs. Decorating our stairs this way will definitely be a Halloween tradition from now on. h6

 

Halloween 2013

I made a Halloween wreath for our front door during the season. I used orange, black and purple tulle and  worked an orange string of battery operated LED lights through the tulle.IMG_3848

I made Lovey a fun breakfast Halloween morning. Pancakes with a whip cream ghost on top that had mini chocolate chip eyes. I put chocolate syrup in his milk glass in the shape of a friendly ghost and lined the rim with Halloween sprinkles.hbI put a few goodies, a paint set and a small coloring book,  in his candy bucket to keep him occupied until time to go trick or treating.o45My little buddy and I wore coordinating socks. Lovey thought it was the neatest thing.o43Lovey chose Sponge Bob Square Pants as his costume this year. o35Sponge Lovey Square Pants! 😉a3And I was a witch for the evening.a1o44Mister Mister had to work on Halloween so it was just the little yellow guy and I trick or treating.hc11a4We love our neighborhood. Everyone really gets into the spirit during the holidays.hc13Lovey  was such a polite trick or treater, always saying please and thank you. hc12We had a fun Halloween together and Lovey made out like a little candy bandit!a2
