Halloween 2021

Wow, it’s been awhile since I have updated my blog! Between a new baby, two toddlers, school, cheer, and overall life- I haven’t had much time to put here. I do want to be more intentional about updating as the moments are passing me by so quickly. It’s true what they say: the days are long, but the years are short.

Anyway, I was happy to have a normal Halloween again. The kids had a blast. Sasha was just in awe. It was really her first Halloween that she actually understood the concept.

I didn’t do as much this year as I had hoped to do, but it’s been a busy last few months and trying to do activities with a baby isn’t always the easiest. We had a nice Halloween though as a family and the kids were happy and thats what really matters.

Decorations

I did a bit more decorating around the house and on the porch, but I never got around to take any photos.

I also decluttered all of the older decor that I chose not to use this year.

Trick or Treats

We made this delicious Halloween Trail Mix

  • Honey Nut Cheerios
  • Caramel Popcorn with Peanuts
  • Candy Corn
  • Candy Pumpkins
  • Flipz White Chocolate Pretzels
  • Candy (baking) eyeballs
  • Honey Bourbon Roasted Cashews
  • Chex Mix Peanut Butter Muddy Buddies
  • Reese’s Pieces
  • White Chocolate Chips

These Candy Corn Bagels were super cute and easy to make using room temperature cream cheese and organic food coloring.

These Ghost Cookies were delicious and turned out adorable. Definitely a great beginner cookie-decorator cookie to start with.

Banana Ghosts were a super quick breakfast that was easy for before school. I dipped Bananas in Vanilla Bean Noosa then covered with coconut shreds and added two chocolate chips for eyes.

Activities

Shaw Farms Pumpkin Patch

Kings Island Halloween Haunt

Lil Cats Trunk or Treat

Costumes

That was our Halloween this year! We made it almost the entire two hours of trick or treating and the kids made out like bandits with the candy.

We all had a really great year and I am so thankful to have a regular Halloween back with my kids where the only masks were part of the costumes and kids gathered in groups of friends for a night of fun, being kids as they should.
