Halloween 2013

It was a little less decorated this year, but the most important things were put out.

I remember trick-or-treating as a child. We used to go in the snow. It was always a shame too, covering up our costumes with big puffy coats. Oh how that has changed. One year my friend even slipped on the ice and broke her collar bone. It didn’t stop her from continuing on though, at least for a little while.

Now, what to do with all that extra candy?!

Pumpkin parade!

I thought there would be more pumpkin scenes at the Pumpkin Parade, but those we saw sure were fun. There was even a headless horseman, cute llamas (I touched one), and our favorite Butterfinger caramel apple from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

A homage to The Great Pumpkin (a classic and a favorite in our home).

And of course, another favorite of ours, The Nightmare Before Christmas, complete with Zero.

I hope that it becomes a bigger event, with more pumpkin scenes, because it was a fun little way to get ready for Halloween next week. We are almost totally ready to welcome friends and family at our home for Halloween too, just a few more items to put up and the Halloween scene will be complete.

Our Halloween Tree Video

I thought it might be fun to show you our Halloween tree on video! It turned out really ORANGE! Just like in real life. 🙂

As I explained in the video, I made the felt ornaments last year. It really is a fun and easy project to do, and it would work well for any holiday since you can customize the colors and designs to fit. I’m tempted to create some felt Easter eggs to add to our Easter tree!
