Our kids make this time of year so much fun!
I find their excitement contagious. Even the most simple of Halloween crafts, desserts, and decorations stir their happiness.
Personally, I adore Thanksgiving, but with THREE little ones . . . I can't escape Halloween. So a few spooky touches here and there help make this time of year extra fun for them.
~ foil pumpkins . . . one for each of our kids ~
I collect linen dishtowels, and have one for every season and holiday under the sun . . . so our kids have fun watching them change. This one is one of their favorites this time of year.
I love the crown on the crow! Did you notice it?
We love Trader Joe's Halloween JOE JOE'S Cookies! They're similar to Oreo's in shape, but these cookies are simply adorable with their double-sided pumpkin faces and bright orange vanilla bean cream filling.
A rich, smooth ganache frosting . . . and plenty of candy corns and sprinkles can make this already adorable cookie even more fun.
We're a hot cocoa family, especially during the cooler Fall and Winter months.
Halloween marshmallows and paper straws make this humble drinking experience fun & festive, especially when we enjoy them by the fire.
You can't have hot cocoa without marshmallows!
Instead of adding traditional mini marshmallows, we add Halloween PEEPS! They look quite fun and festive floating on top!
My husband and I have fond childhood memories of anxiously waiting for our local television station to air children's Halloween cartoons just before the arrival of this fun and festive holiday. They seemed to add to the excitement! Do you remember them too?
One of our all time favorites was (and still is) It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!
We continue the tradition every year, and cozy up on our large sofa with hot cocoa and lots of blankets, and watch this classic together!
And pumpkins . . . pumpkins, everywhere!
Who doesn't love pumpkins this time of year, especially around Halloween . . . when we get to turn them into Jack-o-Lanterns.
Thanks for coming by, and taking a peak at a few of our fun & festive Halloween traditions.
Happy Halloween, friends!
