halloween is right around the corner. 

that used to be my favorite holiday.  i loved getting dressed up and i especially remember the feeling when i was younger of pretending not to be afraid and then being really scared.  i loved the whole pumpkin carving thing, the trick or treating in the cold michigan weather with my dad holding our hands and making stupid ghost noises.

here are some fun desserts to make with your kiddos or loved ones…

all my goodies are on my pinterest page here:
