Here's a last minute craft for Halloween. Cute Trick or Treat Bags! I created these for the Creating with Joy blog. I think they would be cute to pass out to your family-based on whether they were naughty nice. I'm thinking of handing them out at breakfast on Halloween morning. The big question is, who will get the treat bag and who will get

When I was a little girl, my mom made our Halloween costumes. They usually involved clothes from her closet or paper bags. That woman was amazing with paper bags! I especially remember a musketeer costume that she made for my brother.

I hope you enjoyed following along my Countdown to Halloween series. For the last day, I though I would talk about candy and what to do about it.

Are you still hanging in there with me? Following along of the countdown to Halloween? We're on the home stretch now. Today, head to the pumpkin patch and get those pumpkins before all the good ones are taken. It's a school day, but sometimes it's fun to sneak out afterschool or dinner and do something a little different. When you get home, store your pumpkins
Buy candy! You really don't want to be the house that's passing out the crummy candy just because you didn't get to the store in time to get the good stuff. Once it gets home, hide it, and whatever you do, don't open it until Halloween night. If you house is like mine, an open bag of candy is an empty bag of candy! What's
