Reg and I picked up our pumpkins and Halloween treats the other day and are all set to have fun tonight handing out candy!
I was walking around my hood and found that there were some Halloween enthusiasts living amongst us.
I also finally put together a video with all the best moments from the 2014 Vancouver Zombie Walk. The makeup was unbelievable and the turnout? Completely wild.
Reg and I will be carving pumpkins but we ended up donating a lot of our Halloween stuff before the move. It will be interesting to see how creative we get this year!
Ever since I found out about the Nestlé Cocoa Plan I have bought their box of chocolates for Halloween.
2011 Halloween candy selection
And other treats as well of course! Happy to support a Canadian company that helps farmers and is against the use of child labour.
This year we also got a giant box of Old Dutch Popcorn Twists to add to the loot of the tricker or treaters. We have yet to break into our Halloween stash so hopefully they were a good choice.
Halloween is my favourite time of year, hands down. My whole life I have experienced magic in the air on this special day. I also like to feast but this year have fun out of produce so it will be an interesting one. All I know is that I am thrilled we can give out candy to kids this year in our new neighbourhood and that we did not end up in a high rise condo watching trick or treaters run around from the 20th floor.
It will be a noisy one! Between the fireworks and the fact we have the LOUDEST doorbell in the world, I expect quite a party tonight.
May you have a delicious and spooky (but safe) Halloween. Light those jack-o-lanterns and have fun on the wildest night of the year.

Enjoy your Halloween activities tonight! I hope the severed arm in the mailbox made the trip from Halifax. That was always my fave of the decorations you’d show on the blog. Happy Halloween and a Blessed Samhain to you and Reg!

You too Debra! And yes, we think the severed arm made it but we gotta get out the Halloween boxes to check. 🙂 Happy Halloween and Blessed Samhain to you too!!!

Halloween is the best season, ever. Love it. Wishing you and Reg the most spookiest Halloween and boogie boogie night, ever!

Nestle Cocoa Plan is great … not sure that it makes up for flooding African women with formula vs breast feeding when there is little safe water for them to mix it with … and their breast milk dries up in the mean time.
LOVE coffee crips though …
I absolutely adore the picture of you with the pumpkin Suzie! And you took totally ready to rock an amazing Hallloween.
