We celebrated all weekend long, with multiple parties, lots of candy, treats, spooky movies and carving pumpkins. I think we've had our fill and will skip trick-or-treating tonight. 

Trunk or Treat

We attended our first ever trunk or treat. It was so much fun. 

We decided to stick with our costume themes and decorated our trunk like Hogwarts. 

I basically grabbed everything old looking from our house and set it up in the trunk. 

I turned printed images from online into a pendant banner to help people get the theme. 

My cute little sister threw a big Halloween party at her house later that night. My dad helped her make this amazing face-in-the-hole picture boards for her party. 

What would Halloween be without lots of homemade goodies?
We've been making cakes for the school Halloween carnival for years. We loved how this ghost cake turned out. We copied THIS

When I showed my daughter the cake online to see if she wanted to make it, she said, "what if another mom is a blogger and they help their kids make the same cake." It cracked me up. 

We always do a spider cake because I like to use the barbie cake pan at least once a year. This year we did a black widow, complete with a red hourglass on the back. 

I copied THIS idea and made these super cute cupcakes and toppers. 

Mummy pretzel sticks. So easy, so festive and so yummy. 

Hope you all are having a great Halloween.

I love the Halloween treats! We try to avoid food coloring and it seems like nearly everything this time of year is loaded up with it. I'll have to remember these for next year. :)
