Happy Almost Halloween

As far as holiday's go, Halloween ranks among the bottom for me. However, tonight as I strolled the aisles at Target I got excited because the Christmas stuff is starting to show up in the aisles!

Even though Halloween may not be my favorite, I imagine it is still exciting when you are a kid. Tommy and I are going out to dinner tomorrow night and I don't want to slight the neighbor kids, so I decided to do make them each a little goodie basket. And, let's be honest, this is more for me than for them. I absolutely LOVE to make gift baskets. It may be another calling of mine.

Anyway, I felt very Pioneer Womanesque because I took pictures of all of the things I bought before putting them in the tins. Just in case you guys need to run out tomorrow to put together tiny gift baskets ; ).

So, here is everything I got at Target:

I used the stickers to add some height in the "basket."
These were in the Halloween aisle at Target. They are Jones Halloween sodas in candy corn. I am sure the flavor is sickeningly sweet, but kids like that kind of stuff, right? These are going to act as the base in my tins.

Also, I got some filler candy to fill out the container.
The gifts are going to come from Carter & Pudge. They are so thoughtful.
Here is a completed Halloween tin! I think it turned out really cute! I cannot wait to give it to the kids.


Happy Halloween everybody! Any good costumes? Let me know!
