The Countdown Is On to Halloween!

There is just one week left until Halloween.

Are you ready?

We have our costumes, and our candy is prepared for the trick-or-treaters.  This week we are gearing up for a fun Halloween party for Little Man's friends.  I can hardly wait!  We have some fun games and treats in mind for these little friends.  Stay tuned for more details on that later this week!

This year, I have had tons of fun decorating our house inside and out for Halloween.  I am not a huge fan of the gory, gothic parts of Halloween.  I like the fun parts of the holiday!  This year, I have really been into black and white.  And also glitter.  And also sweets.  (That is pretty typical no matter what time of year!)

 

Here are just a few ways that Halloween has crept its way into our home:

I made these fun glittery B-O-O plaques to hang in my living room.  I love those blinged-out letters!

Our Halloween advent calendar has been getting plenty of good use!

Little Man won't let me forget that he needs a piece of candy every morning right after breakfast as we count down the days to Halloween.

 

I added some festive candy corn to my DIY mason jar apothecary jars.

I'm not even a huge candy corn fan, but lately I find them irresistible when they're just sitting there on my counter!

Sunday’s Snippets: The Pumpkin Patch

If you're new to Oopsey Daisy, welcome!  On Sundays, I cherish the opportunity to spend time with family and take a break from my usual crafting routine.  Sunday's Snippets is my chance to show you a peak into our everyday lives.  Thanks for being here!

 

Pumpkin Patch Day might just be one of my favorite days of the whole year.  It's right there behind Christmas Eve!  The patch is everything I love about fall:  Vibrant colors... the outdoors... and pumpkins!!  When it comes to baking, I love all things pumpkin!  Pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies!  So just seeing fields of pumpkins makes me hungry!

We planned our outing to the Patch weeks ago.  And it was the perfect day.  The weather was gorgeous and the pumpkins were plentiful!

I realize that I take too many pictures, but I simply couldn't resist.

I just loved sitting back and watching Little Man experience the Pumpkin Patch for the first time he'll probably remember.

So many pumpkins--where to begin?
