Kids costumes and the gift card winner

{If you are here to see the Modern Fall Home Tour then click HERE}

I have been busy doing little things here and there around the house and if you follow me on Instagram then you have seen it already. Maybe I'll show you on Monday. We have such a busy weekend coming up with 6 soccer games and freezing cold weather…ugh!

Last night was our local Halloween parade and the kids love to go. It's all about collecting bags and bags of candy before they've even had trick or treat.

So I thought that I'd share some more costumes with you today.

My son wanted to have face paint now too so we practiced the other night. I have to improve his teeth next time though. Scary clowns are not really my favorite.


He is really happy with it though and it was free. So I'm happy too ;) All we used was a cape that we already had and his sister's face paint.

She went as her sugar skull again last night. She gets really excited when people don't recognize her.

I also want to show you what we did last year since I never shared it on the blog before. 

I had the cutest little evil witch flying around my backyard:



 Love this little creature. I've told you she likes getting into character :)

And then she also was a princess for school. I told her that it was Belle in her red dress:




My son did Star Wars again. He's just not THAT into getting dressed up anymore. He's growing up way too fast.



Unfortunately we missed the annual Renaissance Faire this year because the one weekend my hubby had to work and the other weekend our cat was so horribly sick and I didn't want to leave her alone. Saved us some money but the kids were really sad.

This is what we looked like last year:


I had my proud knight protecting us!
Yup, she's channeling her inner Renaissance maiden here.


Well this is just another post to show you how much we love Halloween but I think you got it by now right?

One more thing my friends:

The winner of the $200 Target gift card is #194 Nikki Wilson!



Have a great weekend.

Fright-Tastic Halloween Home Tour

When I was asked by Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof to participate in the "Fright-Tastic Halloween Home Tour", I was a little scared that I would get on your guys nerves because I post too many photos of the same stuff over and over again. But you know what? I'm having way too much fun with Halloween that I'm just going to roll with it this month, ok?

So the first couple of photos don't really have anything to do with my home but I worked on my daughter's Halloween costume on Wednesday afternoon and we had a blast which shows in the photos. She loves getting into character (you can see a little costume recap HERE). I might have a little actress ;) If you are one of my Instagram friends, then you saw it already. You can follow me HERE by the way ;)

All I did was order some face paint on Amazon called Snazaroo , I bought a black lace scrap at Joan's for $3 and a half price rose bouquet. I cut the heads of the roses off and glued the lace and roses to a head band that we already had. I also already had the simple black dress . It was originally purchased at H&M but you should be able to find one at Target or Walmart as well. Or this plain black dress would be perfect too (click HERE). Now you only have to paint the face and there are countless videos and tutorials out there with ideas and instructions. 
That's how easy it was to put her costume together.

This outfit totally goes with her creepy sleepover party table that we just had at the end of September. If you are new to my blog then you can click HERE to see more and HERE to see what I bought to put this creepy wall together.

And her costume also matches our living room wall that I talked about on Tuesday (click HERE to see the post) which was Mexican skull art.

The outside of our house is covered in spiders every year, because the neighborhood kids love it:

On Monday I will talk about how very easy it was to make this feather canvas. This post is long enough already. Don't you think so? So don't forget to stop back ;)

And one more thing, I'm also over at Worthing Court today. Suzy was so kind to invite me to her "House Snooping" series.

Have a great weekend.
