I Love Halloween! Seriously!
Today I am putting everything aside to just enjoy the time with my kids. We are going to decorate cookies.
I like to have crafts and baking set up so that my children can easily make the project the way I want them to.
Thankfully, years ago I learned that sometimes all they need are the supplies.
They come with their own inspiration and ideas of how they want things!!
They do not need to make perfect looking crafts or foods.
What they come up with on their own is so much cuter anyways!
Yes, I let them pile on layer upon layer of frosting.
And messes…they are a great thing!
I guess I felt like I needed a post that showed the less than perfect pictures and messy baking fun! I do not want people to come to this site and feel like they can never live up to the pictures they see. As I’ve seen over and over again on crafty and homemaking blogs, we are all human. Pictures I post on here are usually of just the crafts that worked out. There are always many that don’t. There are also usually messes left behind as I make things. I don’t take pictures of the messes, but believe me they are there!
I hope people feel inspired when they come here, or leave with some fun ideas to try with their families.
However, what I most hope is that this blog reminds people to take time with their families and/or friends. Make life special and magical by putting in a little extra effort. Sometimes remember just to enjoy the moment and not feel the need for the moment to be picture perfect!
My Mom always taught me that life is meant to be celebrated. She celebrated EVERYTHING all.the.time! I am thankful that she did this.
I hope everyone has a great Halloween! We have a few parties planned, a very minor surgery, lots of homework for me, and hopefully way too much candy! ;)
