Did You Forget To Celebrate Halloween?

Did You Forget To Celebrate Halloween?


Okay, a few days early, but really…you did see it coming, right?

If your life resembles mine in any fashion (which it likely does and that’s why you’re here), it’s crept up on you….kinda like the shock we all hold that the end of 2011 is around the corner.  So this weekend, I’m on a mission:


Yes. Life is whizzing by and I’m keenly aware of all the things we DON’T do as a family to celebrate exciting holidays. As of yet, we haven’t carved pumpkins, we haven’t done any crafts at our house. We’ve decorated and chosen costumes, and well, that’s about it. No fun cupcakes, pumpkin pies, treats, etc (which reminds me….I need to get some giveaway candy).

The links below are to some amazing sites filled with creative, fun, easy and quick things to do for Halloween. Some are crafty, some are cooking and all contain at least one thing you can do to help you celebrate and solidify those “childhood memories”. I hope you can find at least one thing to do! Enjoy!
