BYOP - Year 4

The Sunday before Halloween we hosted our fourth annual pumpkin carving party. We had a wonderful time with family, friends, yummy food...and of course our pumpkins!
Yummy treats included brownie bites, cupcakes, frankenstien rice krispie treats (created by Ryan), cake pops (courtesy of Yiayia T) and a carmel apple bar (my fav). 

I love apples, I love carmel, I love chocolate and I love toppings...so of course I really LOVED my carmel apple bar. I know, CARMEL = MESSY And then + KIDS = YIKES! Well, the I tried to make it as easy as possible but I guess the mess is half the fun. We dipped apple slices instead of the entire apple and used sticks so they were kinda like carmel apple pops. Anyhow, they were a bit of work...but oh so worth it.  At least in my opinion. :)

Ok back to the party. 
Hayden's adorable outfit. I made the shirt (with my silhouette) and her headband is from HerJoyfulStudio on etsy. I love her bows and headbands!!! So Cute! Can't wait to order some holiday ones!
