Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! I love blogging...thank you for being "treats" in my life!

Last night I baked four dozen cupcakes for my children to share with their classes. I signed up for snack duty in September not knowing I'd be without power due to a snowstorm! Despite the snow, I got the job done.
I'm hostessing Halloween dinner for ten, these Two's Company candles will add a festive vibe to the table.
Bags were filled so that my children can give their classmates a special Halloween treat. The Two's Company python tray is available through the Zhush.
Every year I set a special place setting on Halloween and Valentine's Day for my children. A place setting that isn't elegant like at Christmas, but rather kid focused with stuff that won't have me invited to the queen mum's for tea, but will have me receiving huge hugs and kisses from my kids. The "bat banana," skeleton straw and wind-up toys are joy, for kids!
 My son and daugther will have a special note waiting for them at breakfast. 
 What's on your Halloween agenda? Have a fun filled day!

Wow! I want to be in your son's class!!! :-) This is adorable! So cute! Great job with the cupcakes.

It's amazing how much we do for our kids. I love my mom and I know she did so much for me, but somehow I think our generation seems to be even more devoted to them. Maybe because we try to balance so much in between, so we really appreciate moments like this, where we can express some love and care to our little ones.
You really put a smile while seeing this. It's so well done!

By the way, thank you so much for including me on your blog list. I've included you too! :-)

Happy Halloween and enjoy every minute of it with your kids!

I love the place setting! When I was a kid my mom got me a specially decorated cupcake at the bakery for holidays like Halloween and Valentine's day. It was a special feeling and a fond memory for me and is sure to be for your kids.

What a fun day at your house! I love the special breakfast place setting. That is exactly the kind of thing they'll remember when they're all grown up!

Amazingly, we did not lose power - so sorry that you did.

Hope everything is warm and cozy for your special dinner...I know it will be a treat for all your guests!!!

What wonderful treats to treasure for years to come. Now that our sons are gone and at college, I love bringing them things from home and sharing stories of childhood memories!
Your place setting is adorable!

The Zhush said... sweet, both the shout out and your breakfast tradition! thanks!:)

these are awesome! our little guy just had a parade in school & decided he was too "grown-up" to go out TorT and ended up handing out candies to the TorT-ers!

So your traditions, your kids will always treasure those....and those cupcakes are so cute!
