Preparing for Halloween

We are getting quite excited for Halloween here in the Holsapple household!!! Kennedy has always loved anything that involves holidays!

Weeks ago we started making Halloween treats....we decorated sugar cookies shaped like pumpkins, ghosts and stars. Sprinkles are Kennedy's favorite thing in the kitchen! She tends to go sprinkle crazy!!!! See her handiwork below!!!

We made one set of cookies into lollipop cookies!!! We just stuck some sticks in them before we put them in the oven - easy and a fun way to eat cookies!!!

Kennedy was soooo excited to carve pumpkins that I caved and let her do them early! They are already rotting and year we will need to wait until closer to Halloween. The pumpkin with the diamonds cut out is mine. The scary face is Kennedy's. She drew the face more or less and Jeff cut it out. We say the last pu mpkin is Jeff's, but really Kennedy and I created it. We used a drill and different sized bits! Aren't they lovely?!?

I somehow found time to create a Halloween dress for Kennedy! It didn't turn out quite how I had planned, but it was the first Tee dress I have ever made. ;) Kennedy loves it and doesn't know the difference and that is all that matters!

We already had one Halloween event last night with Daisy Scouts! Lots more Halloween fun follows the rest of the week! I am sure I will post some photos of K in her costume so be on the lookout!!!

Thanks for visiting and be blessed!

Cider Mill

Each fall we take a trip to the Louisburg Cider Mill! It is a favorite for me! We go during the festival and they have fun booths set up and great bluegrass musicians playing. And of course lots of fun activities for kiddos! Kennedy had a great time on the inflatables as you can see in the photo above! And she got to ride the pony too- but refused to look at the camera!

Kennedy also had a great time climbing in the hay bales and on the pumpkins! :)

We even got Quinn in on her first pumpkin photo!!!!

While listening to the Bluegrass music, they asked the kids to come up and do a "chicken dance!" Kennedy loves any chance to preform so you KNOW she was us there!!

And finally we got Apple Cider Doughnuts and apple cider drinks! YUMMO!!!
Thanks for taking a peek!!!!
