Halloween At The Parker's

I cannot express how much I love having my house all decorated for Halloween!  It truly is one of my all time favorite holidays.  Tyson walked through the door last Saturday, just as I was about done decorating and asked if Halloween is celebrated more than Christmas around here.  I had to laugh.  My collection of decorations is starting to build up.  If you ask me, I really don't think one can ever have too many Halloween decorations.  What can I say, my mom instilled it in me, at a young age.  I feel like my house, doesn't have a lot of flat surfaces to decorate on, so until I get my built in's it's a whole lot of randomness everywhere.  

Here's a peek into our home!  Enter if you DARE!!!!
 ^^^ I've started a small collection of witches and cannot wait to add more as the years come.  P is beyond ecstatic to be a witch this Halloween.  I had other idea's in mind, but the girl knew what she wanted and knew exactly how to make it happen.  She batted her eyes at her Mimi and now my mom has been sewing non-stop to ensure that miss P has the most darling witch costume.  P proclaims her excitement on an hourly basis. ^^^
^^^ I have to thank Target for helping me out with the most adorable black, gold and white pumpkins.  Their dollar section is killing it right now. ^^^
^^^ I have been burning THIS candle like crazy.  It's just about time for me to go get another one.  And give me all the candy corn and pumpkins galore. ^^^
^^^ P had a blast watching me hang the spider webs throughout our house.  The spiders were especially exciting.  I couldn't help myself from teasing her as I pulled them out of the box.  She thought they were real for a split second and screamed for her life. ^^^
 ^^^ My favorite purchase from Swiss Days.  I hope to add more to my collection each year.  If you are in Utah, you need to be sure to stop by the Jeni Bee Fall Show to pick up one or two or three of your own.  You can find out more details HERE.  ^^^
 ^^^ The cutest pom garland that my sister girl helped me make last year while taking care of me with a newborn. ^^^
 ^^^ My mom has made me a table runner for almost every holiday (still working on getting her to make me a Fourth of July one).  It's one of the things I look forward to putting out most when it comes to decorating my house. ^^^
^^^ P hasn't put down her binoculars down ever since speech. ^^^
 ^^^ While cleaning up the house I spotted P playing with her stuffed animals.  It seriously melted my heart and I was so happy I had my camera handy.  Ever since going to her friend Clara's house for a tea  party, it's the only thing she can think about.  Over the past few months I have loved the way P has started to play on her own and has started using her imagination.  I try and spy on her every chance I can get. ^^^
^^^ I spy tiny finger prints all over my fireplace.  As much as I love a clean house, I can't bring myself to wipe those fingerprints off. ^^^
^^^ Once she noticed I was taking her picture, she begged for more.  Every photographers dream. ^^^
 ^^^ Posing with her favorite book.  Daddy found her a mini B of M and she's been hooked ever since.  P and Lucy fight over it constantly. ^^^ 
And pretty much the cutest dresses I have ever come across HERE.  P begs to wear hers because she thinks it's a tutu.

It's been a crazy busy week and it's only Tuesday.  Here's to fall being in the air, cooler weather and everything and anything pumpkin!
