Toddler Delights: Halloween Decorating

I decorated my Halloween mantle last night with my little man and we had so much fun. After we put everything up, we lit the candles and turned all of the lights off and just sat there and stared.

It was so cute because hubby was sitting on the couch watching ESPN and us at the same time. When we turned all of the lights off, little man said, "Daddy, turn off the tv too." He did, and we sat there in the dark with just the candles and pumpkins twinkling and I said to my little man, "We're gonna have so much fun this Christmas, I can already tell."

After I took these pics, I let him put fake spider webs all over the fireplace screen and just about every other item that he could cover in the room. It's gonna be even more fun cleaning it all up.


  1. this is so great! you did an amazing job!

  2. What great decorations! It's fun decorating with the kids, uh? Mimi just turned 3 and she is so excited about Halloween this year.

  3. You're making great memories with him. Good job Mom!

  4. That is just the sweetest thing!

  5. Good for you for decorating already! The kids love it so much. I'm hoping we'll get it done this weekend.

  6. I love that he can tell what a great Christmas it's going to be from the twinkling pumkins & candles! What a charmer!

  7. Really cute. This so sounds like our household. I thought I was reading from my own life!
    Decorations very well done.

  8. Those look so cute! My little man loves the Halloween decorations too. I can't wait to get them up this weekend!

  9. Just found your cute blog. I bought the Martha Stewart "Happy Halloween" garland and then ended up returning it because I couldn't find a place to put it. Your idea is perfect. We have a similar mirror over our mantle. I love the garland there and now I am so mad that I returned it. Oh well, next year maybe she'll have it out again.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
