Countdown to Halloween

Sweet Turtle Soup

Hey Everyone! I'm so excited to be linking up with Courtney & Aria @ Sweet Turtle Soup for a Countdown to Halloween =)

We kicked our October off right with festive attire ... because why not ?!?!

Here are our Halloween trees that we put up this year. We had the black one last year and we added the orange one this year. I'm obsessed with trees. Halloween Ornaments are a headache to find though. Hallmark had a few out this year and of course disney had some =)  Carsyn's Halloween gifts are under the tree that she got to open on October 1st

This is a picture of what she got to open. Just some random things she could use the whole month of October.

We put out our Meadowbrook Gourds (one of my favorite decorations)

We had the Halloween Banner last year (a JoAnn's find) and this year I decided to add some real pumpkins to the mix, rather than my same old Halloween decor.

I have made the Luscious 4-Layer Pumpkin Cake a few times now and it is hands down one of my favorite desserts. Super easy too.  ((Recipe Here))

Carsyn's Bookcase got a little Halloween Spirit added to it too. We were lucky enough to find the Minnie Witch Plush on our recent trip to Disney World... she is just the cutest and my favorite thing on the shelf.

Happy Halloween Festivities to All =)


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Halloween trees! So festive and how cool you put her Halloween goodies there as presents. I have to remember that for next year! I also totally love your fireplace/mantel set up. We're building a home and still looking for ideas for the fireplace (which we may do ourselves after we move in). Your little girl is super cute in her Halloween attire too! Thanks for linking up with us!

  2. I love how all out you go! I saw a tiny tree with tissue ghosts on it the other day and about died from the simplicity and cuteness. I really hope I remember that for next year. Not sure I could talk the husband into it this year.
    I love when you give presents that are just things you'd get anyway. I think that is always more fun. If my husband orders something from amazon just for a need or want and it gets here before he is home, I'm wrapping that puppy up.
    My fave is your fireplace pumpkins!
