Decorating for Halloween.  Yay!

My granddaughter LOVES Halloween!  She's a Candy Queen!

Since the first time we took her toddling off to go Trick or Treating she's loved it.

How could a Candy Queen not?  You get to walk up to people's house that you don't even know,

knock on the door and they give you FREE candy! 

You don't even have to say trick or treat if you don't want to and they always tell you how cute you are.

Win win!

 

This is my favorite photo of Dakota trick or treating.  She's dressed as a 60s flower child.  The poncho is one

that I actually wore in the 60s as a child.

This is my grandson, Gunner, last year.  Isn't he the cutest thing??? :)

Trick or treating is big in our neighborhood.  I have a huge bowl that I start filling up the first of October.  (Got the bowl on sale at Belk's years ago)  I have to keep refilling the bowl as the month goes on because the Candy Queen, my son in law, and my husband all love candy.  I love watching them digging

through that big bowl of candy hunting their favorites.   And by the time trick or treating is over, the bowl is usually empty ... thanks to my husband.  He usually tells the kids when they come trick or treating to

"just get what you want".  Yeah, he's had to rein in a few.   Crazy! :)

Anyway, I've added a couple of new purchases to my Halloween decorations this year and I LOVE them!!

I just got my Halloween wreath yesterday.  I'd seen one on fb that the mother of one of my daughter's childhood friends made.  It would have matched my new witch perfectly.  So I commissioned my own wreath and I LOVE how it turned out.  I couldn't have bought anything more perfect!  Cheryl did a great job on it and it was a great price.   This photo does not really do it's awesomeness justice!

I got my new witch at Cracker Barrel.  Love her!  She is precious!

The metal jack o'lantern is new as well.  I got it at The Lucky Rabbit.  Love it, too!

The dog I got when Dakota was small and he came from Cracker Barrel, too.  Dakota didn't like him when she was small because she was afraid of dogs.  I still love him after all these years and all the kids do as well.  They always make sure that he has candy in his little jack o'lantern bucket.

This will look more pulled together when I add the fall stuff with it towards the end of the month for the

Fall/Halloween Decorating Contest.  The real pumpkins and mums pull everything together.

These are some things I have inside.  I just got the tray at Cracker Barrel.  I've still got to find some things

to go along with it.
