Halloween Countdown: Days 19 - 25

5 days till Halloween! Is everyone stocked up on candy and finished with their costumes? Good! Cause we sure aren't. I foresee a mad dash for both those items on Saturday afternoon. 

I'm excited to see what everyone's been up to in the last full week before Halloween, so let's jump right in with the countdown, starting at 19:
Day 19: Monster Window Clings.

Ez had a ton of fun with window clings last year, so of course I had to snap some up from the dollar section this year. Ez loved putting them up just as much as he did last year, but so far he hasn't been taking them down and depositing them all over the house. A sign of maturity, I suppose. Declan had fun during this activity too, mostly because he's discovered his feet and that equals hours of entertainment for him.

Day 20: Fall Photos.
We did a fast DIY park photo shoot, and I'm counting that as our fall family photos. This month just went by too fast to plan anything else. You can see all the rest of my favorites here.

Day 21: Fall Decor.
Pumpkins everywhere make me happy! And Ez too. You're more likely to find pumpkins strewn across the floor than on our shelves, because #toddlerlife, but it's the idea that counts. You can check up our fall setup here.

Day 22: Monster Crafts.
Since Ez currently has a love of all things monsters, I rounded up a few of my fave Pinterest-inspired monster crafts over here.

Day 23: Mickeys Halloween Party!
We had a blast and I'm sad it's over. Expect to hear lots more about this later this week.

Day 24-25: Halloween Flashback.
We were traveling home from Disneyland, so instead of fun Halloween activities we spent lots of hours crammed into a car listening to Cars on repeat. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from Halloweens past. And, a very special flashback to last Halloween morning when we got confirmation that baby Declan was indeed in my belly. Crazy how much has changed since this picture:

  1. Love that flashback picture! I found out I was pregnant with Hallie the day before Halloween! Looks like a great week!

  2. Window clings are the best!! Mickey's Halloween party looks like a blast!!! This time of year I get so jealous of all of you so close to Disney!

  3. Omg!! I thought that last picture was an announcement at first!!! I love how you literally do a recap for your countdown posts. So organized & fancy ;)

  4. aww love that last year pregnancy finding out-ness. Sometimes sentence structure eludes me. I'm ready to hear more about D-land!!! Yay!

  5. You take such beautiful photos! I adore flashback and comparison photos so this post just did it for me :)

  6. Can't wait to hear all about Mickey's Halloween party!! My kids love window clings… so sad we don't have target here anymore as that's where I used to get mine!!!

  7. Window clings provide so much fun for littles. I am loving those throwback photos. :)

  8. I love the theme for your link party! Your personal countdown is great too! You're building memories that will last a lifetime!!

  9. Avery is obsessed with those window clings! They're all over our back slider :) Disney Land around Halloween is the best! I can't wait to be able to take Avery and experience it all over again through her, until then I will live vicariously through your Mickey Halloween party story!

  10. We got those window clings too (as well as like 4 other ones - I went a bit crazy lol) and Mason had a blast putting them up! In fact they're still up and he still loves to go over and admire his "art work"!

  11. Cannot wait to hear all about Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. I really miss Disney. I bet you had fun.
