I know the actual Halloween hasn't happened yet but we have done some fun things so far this month. 
We have such a wonderful group of friends here in Florida and spend a great deal of time with them since we are all single moms at times. We tried to make the most of the month and do a few little crafts with the kids, Halloween story time at the library, Halloween mall activity, pumpkin patch and of course trick or treating tomorrow.

A few days ago I hosted the Craft day for the month of October.
We started it one year ago this month!! I can't believe it was a year ago and we have done it every single month since. Each mommy takes on the responsibly of creating a craft, snack and story to a theme of their choosing and lets their house get destroyed. on average we have 10 moms, 10 two/three year olds and 10 "little siblings" all under one roof. 

I was a smart mommy this month and locked up my home and my breakables and headed out to the big, open yard. Why not when the weather is 72 degrees and your yard is gigantic???

Here are some pics......

decorated pumpkins for our craft

read some Halloween library books on the lawn

We had a scary ghost hunt
attempted duck duck goose with two year olds and
lots of play time in the sun

The little tiger in the picture above had a baby elephant sister for my baby bunny to best friends with!
Not sure you can look at this picture and not want to have a baby bunny or baby elephant of your very own!


Awkwardly getting her face painted

And last but not least Trick Or Treating last year 2011
One of my all time favorite pictures!

Trick Or Treating this year 2012


  1. How have I never seen that Halloween picture from last year? So bummed we didn't all go together this year. Also bummed that I didn't get one good picture of my kids in their costumes. They wouldn't sit still long enough for the pic to not be blurry. Also, so bummed we missed the Halloween craft day. You are amazing!

  2. It is so crazy how much they change in just a year. I am glad that you had a fun Halloween. Wish you could have come with us.
