Halloween 2017

1

Halloween Morning can be like Christmas morning but better because well its HALLOWEEN!

4

I bought my boys PJ Pals Matching Halloween Pajamas from the Disney Store and placed them in matching pumpkin containers from the Dollar Tree and used leftover decorations from Halloween parties in the past to set the table.

6

For my 9 month old I drew a pumpkin design on his sweet potatoes, and bought him glow in the dark Halloween puffs from Gerber.

2

I then made the kids pancakes topped with whip cream and kisses for ghost eyes. I also used the kisses as ghost eyes when placed on half bananas.

7

When it was time for pickup I made hotdog Mummies. Simply take crescent triangles and cut into strips then wrap dogs accordingly.  Bake according to package directions. Add eyes (Can be found in cake section at Walmart)

Happy Kids & Happy Halloween.

Lochaven Haunted Halloween House Review

1

Located in Waterford Michigan this Halloween display has been a neighborhood favorite for 24 years. Every year the home owner puts up a multitude of displays. Parking is available on the side of the road. Donations are welcome but not mandatory. There is a walk through haunted house but I was unable to go through as I had a baby with me. With that said there was still family friendly fun.

2

The path included displays of a haunted forest of beheaded brides, clowns, over-sized skeleton clock, pumpkin vine overhead, a skeletal funeral procession, and a photo op in the back of a Cadillac with a friendly dressed up monster.

All in all it was worth the 20 minute drive and will be a tradition I will continue with my family here on out in Michigan.

‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ Hot Chocolate Bar.

Colder temps mean hotter drinks or perhaps stronger drinks but that is for a different blog post entirely. We have had some cool mornings and in an effort to warm the kiddos up I put together a hot chocolate bar.

1

I found a free printable online. I then printed, and framed. I gathered coffee mugs from the dollar tree and found sticker labels that I put on them to personalize for each child. Next I bought glass containers and filled them with chocolate kisses, marshmallows, and peppermint. I made stir sticks out of peppermint sticks, over-sized marshmallows, and a Hershey Bar. Next i gathered a tray and sequin tulle that I used as a table runner. All from you guessed it! The Dollar Tree!

The kids loved picking and choosing their toppings and fun was had by all.

Cheers!

Haunted Halloween Display on Kensington Lane, Bloomfield Hills

One of my favorite things to do with the kids around the holidays (both Halloween AND Christmas) is to look at light displays in and around town. The owner of this home and creator of the display is a graphic designer for Chrysler. His wife told us that his display has gotten bigger and bigger over the years and it’s a creative outlet for him to channel and for us to enjoy. We were blown away by the details and the elaborate set that was built in front of the house. Grab the kids after they finish homework and head over! A great FREE way to make memories and enjoy the season. That’s if you’re not too scared. 😉
