Well the big day is finally here! Can you believe it?! As a lifestyle writers bloggers have been celebrating Halloween for about 60 days…
This is a magical time of year. With crisp fall leaves that crunch under your toes, to all kinds of rustic home cooking (love all that pumpkin!)
Kids have settled into school routines & parents frantically try to get everything done in the precious hours the kids are away from home.
Today let’s celebrate this whimsical holiday of Tricks, Treats and Jack ‘O Lanterns…
It has been a whirlwind of crazy Hurricane Sandy for folks back east. My family is on Long Island and we also have family in NYC. Our prayers go out to everyone suffering destruction from this natural disaster…
Trick or Treating is the last thing on their minds.
Staying warm, safe and dry is most important.
The people in Telluride really embrace the season. Silly them, I just adore their holiday spirit.
Actually I LOVE their spirit all year long.
Creepy, spooky and fun holiday decorations are everywhere…
Don’t worry, the mountains are there to protect you from any frightful things…
Here in California we take a few yearly trips to the Irvine Regional Park.
It is a pretty & happy place.
We LOVE Halloween there. You can also see our experience there last year.
My kids love to ride on the train.
Hugh the conductor likes to entertain people who ride the train…
They share many giggles on the mini John Deere tractors.
They also enjoy trying to find each other in the straw maze…
Last weekend we hosted a Halloween Pumpkin Carving birthday party for my daughter.
She LOVES adding holiday whimsy to all of her birthday parties!
I was crazy in a rush before the party ~
Thankfully I found this adorable Jack ‘o Lantern cake at Whole Foods!
What are you going to be for Halloween? How about your kids & pets?
I might just wear a purple wig…
Be safe and happy out there everyone!
