It’s Almost Here

Just a few more days and it’s Halloween. The house is decorated, costumes are hanging in the closet, candy is patiently waiting for little ones to knock on the door and yell ‘TRICK or TREAT’; there is not much more to do but wait for the big day. And then it hits me….create a new tradition; Halloween breakfast. So I scoured Pinterest in hopes of finding the perfect Halloween breakfast.

Halloween Breakfast!

This is cute but not very healthy. Let’s keep looking and see what alternatives we find.

diy no effort halloween breakfast...doughnut monster or for a healthy alternative bagel monster

Boiled egg eyeballs…..this is pretty cool but to be honest I am not sure I could eat these because they would feel too much like an eyeball. LOL.

Boiled Egg Eyeballs - Halloween Breakfast?

This looks so yummy, using a strawberry jam or something like that for the blooooood.

Bloody Pancakes, Halloween Breakfast #halloween #fakeblood #strawberry #syrup

I was also thinking of blending up some spinach and mixing it in with scrambled eggs so they would turn green.  Then you could put ketchup on them (my kiddo loves ketchup on his scrambled eggs) or salsa and there you have it…frankenstein eggs with a side of blllooood.

Or you can cut out different shapes (ghost, witches hat, etc,) in slices of bread and make french toast (or pane carrozza as my mom and dad call it). You can also cut out  these shapes and make sppooky little sandwiches for the kiddos lunch. Okay, so it may seem a little corny but I love it!!! Why not keep the fun going? 😉

Just when I think the fun and excitement of Halloween is drawing to an end, I see these. Yep, I am stoked!!! Can’t wait to make these for my little man…..and myself if I am going to be totally honest. 😉

Oh and I tried yet another vlog. It’s funny the looks you get when you walk down the street or in a store and you are vlogging. Oh well, I am doing it for your viewing enjoyment so it’s all worth it. 🙂

What Scares You?

I am so stoked for Halloween. Some years I like to go cutsie with big eyed ghosts and cute little pumpkins but this year I just want indulge in the spooky side of Halloween.  I love scary and spooky but am not into grotesque.  This scares the crap out of me.

More often than not, my imagination runs wild.  So the first thing I think of when I see something like the decoration below is…”wouldn’t it be scary if you saw this and then it blinked. Or you looked away and when you looked back it was right up close to you” AHHHH that will get the hairs on the back of your neck standing straight up.

I would want to put this in a hallway corner or a bathroom.... SOOO AWESOME!!

Seriously, I am my own worst enemy when it comes to this kind of stuff.

True story….I used to commute to Virginia (5 hours away) once a month for work. This meant getting up at 2 or 3 a.m. and heading out the door when it was pitch black outside…okay maybe not that dark but to me it was.  As I began my commute, my co-pilot was my over active imagination…yeah it was going to be a fun drive. It also didn’t help that we had watch The Grudge the night before.

So I did what any mature adult would do, I click on the dome light in my car and turned the rear view mirror away from me because I was afraid to look at it and have that Grudge girl looking back at me. Seriously…l drove 5 hours with the dome light on and singing as loudly as possible because I was terrified. LOL! 

Here is another thing that would scare the poop out of me.

Something dark in a corner can be very scary.. love it.

Something standing in the corner just staring at you….I would be waiting for it to lunge, or move, or something. AHHH I’m SCERD!

Okay….one more to get the heart pumping……

Scary ceiling prop , photo by Holly . Easy to make. A scary mask, an old night gown, and some wire hangers. Suspend with fishing line.

Ahhhh!!! That is horrifying! Okay that’s it for now!!! LOL I get scared so easily and yet I love horror movies, going to haunted houses etc. What can I say, I’m an enigma.

Let’s start our countdown to Halloween by sharing some sppooookkky ghost stories. What scares you? Do you believe in ghosts/paranormal? Have you had any “experiences”?


Three, Four, Five Little Mice

As we creep into October, the Halloween bonanza continues. Witches hats are placed with care throughout our home, along with singing skeletons, swinging witches, spooky pumpkins and mice. Mice? You ask. Yes, I said mice.

As I perused through ideas on how to decorate my front porch I stumbled upon this picture:

Notice the mice on the step – how cute is that, and how easy to turn into a DIY project.

I started by going online and searched Bing for images of mice cutouts.

After some dinner with my little man, out came the scissors and it was arts and crafts time. My thought was to cut out each mouse and laminate it so it is protected from the elements.

This is a great project for your little one to help with; I printed off an extra sheet of mice and let him join in the fun.

After cutting out each picture, I laminated the mice using a Scotch Laminating Sheet.

And then cut them out, again….talk about tedious. 😉

Since it was too dark out to put them on the porch steps and take a picture we tested these out on our stairs. The looked good, and bonus, it was a new and fun thing for JBear to play with. He kept moving those mice from step to step and I just kept snapping pictures.

The next day, we moved these little critters to the front porch to see how they looked outdoors.

What would I do differently?

As you can see I didn’t cut out the area between the tail and the body. Seeing this every time I walk up the steps will drive me nutso so I believe that I will redo this little project and remove that portion. Until then, I will leave you with a lesson learnt….do it right the first time so you don’t have to go back and do it again. 🙂
