Halloween 2014

Halloween 2014 was a success! We’d planned and shopped and it went wonderfully! Baby V wasn’t nearly as afraid as we’d suspected she would be (except of Jeremy, can you believe it? He couldn’t be a pirate because she was afraid!) Turns out, his not being a pirate may have been a blessing in disguise […]

Ways to Use Your Leftover Halloween Candy

Oh, Halloween. We love you so hard. We love dressing up in costume, decorating the house, and throwing Halloween parties. The kids particularly love walking door-to-door to get all the candy their little trick-or-treat bags can hold, am I right?

Decorating for Halloween and Fall in the New House

YES! I love decorating so so much! Particularly, I loooove love decorating for Halloween and fall!! It was like Christmas unpacking our boxes from the movers – not only did we have a surprise in each box (because they weren’t packed properly – Christmas stuff in Valentines, Easter stuff in Fall/Halloween, etc), but we had […]

Orange List: Hot Costumes and Party Trends for 2014 from BuyCostumes.com #OrangeTuesday
