    • Watch It’s The Great Pumpkin together! Or pick another favorite! Or both!

    • Surprise the kids by playing Thriller or Monster Mash for an impromptu mini dance party!
  • Halloween Clearance Shopping Planning

    • Some stores will start marking things down this week! Keep an eye out!

    • Review store blogs as desired to plan for trips! All Things Target, etc.

    • Will you use candy in holiday baking this year? Score some deals on Halloween candy - once it is out of the wrapper no one will know!

We are set!

Last week we caught Toy Story of Terror on ABC. It was the first time I had heard of it or had seen it. We enjoyed it but real little ones would probably be scared.

We ran out of candy corn for Candy Corn Bingo. I went to the grocery store to pick up a couple more bags and they had only 10-15 bags left! I don't know if it is just my store but I was a bit surprised to see such limited supplies two weeks before Halloween.

Wow! I am surprised at that too, Mary! Usually there are TONS of candy corn left after the holiday. Maybe stores got wise and ordered less to cause a scarcity.

Then it will be impossible to find, lol!

Toy Store Tower of Terror??? How did I not know about this? On a mission now...

I think we are set too! Camper is 95% packed and will finish the rest tonight! Candy, costumes, treat pail, candy bowl, check! check! check!

Can't wait!!!
