Last Minute Halloween Crafts, DIY Projects, Recipes & More!

I love Halloween!  I enjoy all the fun baking, crafting and spending time with the family.  I have amazing memories from every Halloween, even back to when I was a little girl.  However, my all-time favorite memories, the one that still makes me giggle every time I think about it was last year.  OMG, my daughter Vayda wore this Sumo Baby costume from Kmart that was just too darn funny!  Every single house we went to people giggled and I made her walk in front of me so that I could watch her walk in her HUGE Blow Up Baby Sumo Costume.  I will never forget the way she looked walking down the sidewalk in that costume.
We still have not carved pumpkins this year, but it’s only because I’m waiting until right before Halloween so they stay good.  I’m honestly kicking myself for not just painting them, next year we will do that so we can enjoy them longer.  Just because we haven’t done any pumpkin carving doesn’t mean we haven’t done some Halloween crafts.

Kmart Halloween Hot Dog CostumeHalloween is one of my favorite holidays because it’s fun, I get to spend extra time with my kids doing crafts and baking, and it’s also the start of the holiday season!  I love Halloween; I often think I look forward to it more than my kids, lol.  Hey, Halloween isn’t just for kids!  Did you know that more than 67 percent of American believe that Halloween is not just for the kids?  Halloween considered to be a family event by more and more people this year, especially because Halloween lands on a Saturday this year.  It makes it the perfect excuse to get dressed up with the kids and enjoy some of the fall events and activities happening in your area.
