Happy Halloween!

I had high hopes for halloween decorating this year. Andrea and I even made a crafternoon of it, but alas, my plans to "finish up when I got home" kinda didn't go much further. I did get some googly eyed mummy jars made which, I have to say, are one of the easiest (therefore, best) crafts ever.

Here's a look at the halloween decor happening over here... simple and easy, just the way I like it.

There's nothing scarier than full fledged winter in October. Welcome to Alberta, folks.

It's Alice's first halloween tonight and I'm super excited to take her out for some trick or treating! What will we do with all that candy she's too young too eat???

Happy Halloween!!

  3. awe looks so great! we did the mummy jars last year so I was off the hook with having too much decorating. also I grew up in Picture Butte Alberta and I remember the snow. Trick or treating in a winter coat, mittens, boots and well face painting for our costume :) Have fun tonight with Alice :). p.s. eating candy as I type this...

    1. ok, I just googled Picture Butte, Alberta. I have never heard of that place, I thought maybe you had made a typo or something ;) haha. As a fellow albertan, I know you understand! Alice has a separate "outdoor costume" it's so cold!

  4. Very cute little mummies but I think my favorite part is just the simple little spiders hanging around on your piece of art!
