Countdown to Halloween

Yaya brought the boys this awesome Halloween countdown calendar from Pottery Barn Kids last weekend.  Last night I filled each pocket with tiny treasures like Hot Wheels cars, candy, gum, stickers and paint pens.  When the boys woke up this morning they were thrilled to find a new, fun Halloween decoration on the wall.  Today’s surprise was a little Hershey’s bar for each of them.  They saved their treats for an afternoon snack.  So cute!

I’m looking forward to this becoming a Halloween tradition in our family!


I Know It’s a Tad Early…

I couldn’t resist busting out the Halloween decorations today when Cutie Pie and I got back from Toddler Time at the library.  I realize that it’s mid- September and 90+ degrees outside.  It doesn’t exactly feel autumnal around here.  It never does.  We only have two seasons: Summer and a cooler version of Summer.  I love, love, love Halloween so I figured why not enjoy the decor a few weeks early.  The boys went bananas over all of the boxes that were extracted from the attic.  They “helped” me plant the garden stakes in the mulch, place the three tin pumpkins on the front porch, haul all of the home decor inside, and hang the Halloween flag on the house.

The boys worked up a sweat with all the Halloween decorating this morning so I let them fill up the water table and frog pool on the back porch.  They cooled off in the shade with some water fun while I made lunch.

It’s been a fun day so far!
