"You've Been Booed" - Halloween Sharing Treats

Halloween time is here! I love celebrating every holiday to it's fullest and if I can take this time of year to show my neighbors or people close to me how much they mean to me, then that is what I am going to do. When we first moved into our neighborhood, someone sent us a neighborhood Christmas gram and we never figured out who did it, but it was such a fun idea! I wish I had taken a picture of it. So I have decided this All Hallows Eve (Spooky Season) season that I would share a fun printable to get into the spirit and share spooky treats with my neighbors. With Boo Baskets becoming a trend again, this a fun kid-friendly option that they will surely love!

This year, all my goodies came from Oriental Trading because they have everything you need for a one stop Halloween shop at a great price. They have exclusive candy items like Unicorn Poop marshmallows, costumes for the entire family, decorations that range from spooky to seasonal, graphic tees for all, and so much more. I love working with them and it's has been one of my go to shopping places since my mom told me about them years ago. She loved shopping there for supplies for her classroom when she was a teacher.

Homemade Cake Pops - What to Do with Leftover Birthday Cake

I hate wasting food. You can ask anyone I know. There are people starving all over the world. So, when it comes to what to do with leftover food from events, I am always thinking outside the box. Searching for what to do with leftover birthday cake, I found that you actually make cake pops with cake. You basically make a cake and frosting then it easy peasy from there. PLUS, cake pops are freezable! So, you could make a bunch of cake pops out of the leftover cake, pop them in your freezer, and save them for a later event or a sweet random surprise treat.

Homemade Cake Pops - What to Do with Leftover Birthday Cake

To make the cake pops, you will need left over cake, or you can make a sheet cake plus enough frosting to cover just the cake. I had a bunch of little bites that were about to expire. There was no way we were going to go through them in time and I definitely didn't want to waste them, so I decided to turn them into Vampire Cake Bites for a Halloween charcuterie board. I also already had some candy coating on hand from when I worked with Chocolate Pen so this basically a no brainer recipe for me to create.

Autumn Bucket List Activities for the Family to Enjoy

Who is excited for fall? This past weekend was the first time that the weather actually felt like fall for us. Living in south problems I guess. But I am so excited to start enjoying all the fun activities that autumn has to offer whether the weather starts cooperating or not. So I decided to keep going with my seasonal bucket list activities and make one for Fall too!

Autumn Bucket List Activities for the Family

Winter is our busy time of year. I know winter doesn't technically start until the end of December, but I included all of Christmas activities on that one. This list is just fun fall activities. Each year we visit our local ecotourism farm that has many of the activities included on this list. I highly suggest finding a local farm near you. It is such a great idea to support local. This year will also be the first time in MANY years that we will also be attending the Georgia National Fair in Perry, GA with the whole family. Follow all of our family's adventures on Instagram.

Safe & Lovely Halloween Outfit Ideas For Children

Halloween is a great time of year, and it’s very nearly here. While not every country in the world celebrates it as aggressively as others, it’s important to note that many do. For a child, this time of year can be quite scary. Not quite understanding if your Jack’o’ lantern pumpkin is actually warding off evil spirits or not, wondering why there are cobwebs and many other odd decorations around the house and the scary costumes everyone wears can be a little disorienting at first. We may even remember feeling this way ourselves.

That being said, it’s important to allow them to engage in these festivities and to help them celebrate this time with others. Trick or treating can be a great part of that, but in order to settle their fears it may be that eschewing the scary outfits that adults wear and allowing them a time to simply dress up and have fun is important.

In the following words, we hope to explore a list of wonderful and safe Halloween outfit ideas for children. You’ll likely be very surprised as to the results:

Creepy, Kooky, Spooky Addams Family is BACK!

Who's creepy, kooky, Mysterious, spooky, and all together ooky? Yay for October and all things Halloween! Who has already started watching Halloween movies? This girl! One of my favorites is The Addams Family and Addams Family Values! I love how 90s they are. I think the reason I love them so much is because I remember them coming out and my dad taking me to see them. Did I get all the jokes? Probably not. But they are still Halloween classics. I love that there is now a two movie collection available on Blu-Ray so I can share the nostalgia with my kids!

Easy, Interactive Halloween Costumes from Flappysuits + Giveaway

In our house, September means getting ready for Halloween! It is one of my favorite holidays, if not my favorite. I love dressing up and decorating, creating spooky recipes for the kids, or watching family-friendly scary movies, but I love that there isn't all the pressure that tends to come with Christmas. This year my kiddos didn't know what they wanted to dress up as for Halloween, so when I was asked to try out Flappy suits, I thought what a great opportunity to let my kids choose what they want to be.

Flappy suits have secret airbags built into the costume, which cause different parts of the costume to magically move! They’re great for Halloween costume parties and slumber parties. They have a variety of flappy suit animals to choose from.

5 Reasons to Visit Six Flags Over Georgia Fright Fest

The hubby and I got invited to experience Six Flag Over Georgia's Fright Fest. I was so excited because I haven't been since I was a kid. The recommended age was 12+, so we decided to make a date night of it.

We experienced a behind the scenes experience and witnessed how each ghoulish creature is created by a team of make up artists. My husband's goal the entire night was to make sure I was scared and he would jump at me. It was actually a fun bonding experience and we felt like kids again. It was such a fun idea for a date night too!

Halloween Dress Ups and Gift Ideas from Little Adventures

YAY! It's finally October! Which means I can officially put up all of the Halloween decorations! The kids are SO excited about Halloween that they have already picked out their costumes! We save our costumes and use them for "dress up" or "pretend play". It is a great way for them to explore through imagination and can help them express their feelings as well.

I was introduced to Little Adventures last summer. I seriously feel in love with the company. Little Adventures sells soft, washable, affordable dress ups. The company was started 15 years ago by two moms who were tired of itchy, scratchy dress ups that fell apart and were not washable. They wanted dress up clothing that children could wear outside, take naps in, or even wear to the grocery store!

Enjoy Halloween with the Whole Family Thanks to Oriental Trading

Do your little ones know what they are going to be for Halloween this year? This is the first year that my son was adamant about being Batman, even though he was last year too. So I talked to my daughter and we all decided that we could do a family theme and go as different members of the Justice League. These Halloween costumes and many, many more were easily found at Oriental Trading.

I love using Oriental Trading for all of my seasonal decorating and party needs. They have everything you are looking for and fantastic prices. They have helped me plan multiple birthday parties and I have used them to get my kiddos their Halloween costumes for a few years now. They even have fun crafts for all occasions as well.

So have you heard the news? Stranger Things Season 2 is coming back exclusively on Netflix just in time for Halloween. My husband and I are huge fans of the series and are very excited for season two. And plus there is time for you to binge watch season 1 if you haven't yet or if you are in need of a refresher.

I decided to create these Maple Pumpkin Spiced Muffins with Mini Waffles because I was inspired by Eleven's love of the frozen breakfast item. I used a box mix that was originally for pancakes. So this recipe is super easy to recreate and my kids loved them.

Have a Spooky Halloween with Netflix

I am a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam and receive complimentary products as such. All opinions are my own.

YAY it's October! That means sweaters, boots, all things pumpkin, and HALLOWEEN! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Before I had kiddos, I loved dressing up, going to themed parties, and even catching the Rocky Horror Picture Show live on stage in Atlanta. Those days are long behind me and now we have more kid-friendly festivities. And I'm TOTALLY okay with that!

Netflix Halloween Movies for Kids

Besides dressing the kiddos up in their super cute costumes, we love to go to our local pumpkin patch, enjoy some hayrides, carving pumpkins, indulge in too much candy, and watch Netflix for all of our spooky (the kid friendly way) streaming.

Here's some of our favorites:
