Halloween Fun: Pumpkin Ideas

Every year we go to the pumpkin patch. It is tradition, and tradition states that we come home with so many pumpkins that I have no idea how we are going to carve all of them. We tend to pick the best looking pumpkins to carve, you know the ones that are rounded, no smashed in sides, and usually clean looking. The the rest of the pumpkins get put out as decorations. We even paint some of them! So this year lets get some incredible ideas for both carving and painting! Carving: Disney : These stencils can be easily printed and...

Halloween Crafts: Fluffy Pumpkin Slime

Slime has been very popular the last few years. In our house we love to make it, we try to avoid the recipes that ask for Borax which can irritate skin, but otherwise we do enjoy a good slime recipe.

It is September, and for many that means back-to-school routine, cooler weather, and shorter days. In our house, it means Halloween prep. We have already established that I love holidays.

We could use a little more joy in this world! So do not be upset when I tell you I am already decorated for Halloween, and my kids already have their costumes....
