I can’t believe it is finally October! My favorite month of the entire year! Why? Well, October is a big month for my family. Ryan and I celebrate our Anniversary on the 8th, Ryan’s birthday is on the 15th (I ‘m looking at you, thirty-year-old) and my baby, Hampton, is turning two on the 24th. Not to mention, Halloween is my favorite holiday! Free candy, dressing up in fun costumes, trunk-or-treat, Halloween parties, Hocus Pocus, pumpkins – why wouldn’t it be my favorite? To make this holiday a little more special for you, I’ve teamed up with a few other bloggers to give away $1000 Paypal Cash! There will be two winners who will receive $500 each. Enter below:
Happy October! It is officially my favorite month of the year. Why? Because the weather is the perfect temperature, there are pumpkins everywhere, I can finally wear my boots and scarves and the leaves begin to change. This year is extra special because we celebrate our 2nd anniversary, Ryan’s 28th birthday, and we will be welcoming our baby boy into the world. What a wonderful month.
I promise this is my last Halloween post. Our church hosts a “trunk-or-treat” every year. My sister, Alex, decided to decorate her trunk and it looked adorable. I took these photos with my iphone so please excuse their quality as some are blurry. I hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween night!

How did you celebrate Halloween?
My sister and I spent a whole day together last Saturday so we could get our Halloween fix! We did a Halloween craft, made no-bake peanut butter bars, and watched Hocus Pocus (for the 27845489364518764 time). Here are a few pictures from our day of Halloween fun!
No-bake Peanut Butter Bars:

I made the bars in a 9×9 pan rather than 9×13 so they would be a bit thicker. I got this recipe from Six Sisters’ Stuff’s blog! Go check it out! They have great recipes!
They turned out great! If you like Reese’s, you will LOVE these! They were so easy to make.
Unfortunately we do not have a Cricut or Silhouette (but I’d like one for Christmas, hint hint) so we googled “free Halloween silhouette print-outs” and found these. We printed them on card stock paper and then cut them out and mod podged them onto scrapbook paper that we purchased from Hobby Lobby. We bought these frames for $1 a piece from the Dollar Tree. This was a cheap, fun project that turned out really cute!
I hope you enjoyed viewing our pictures!
