Is Halloween really only two weeks away??? How did that happen?! We are gearing up for Halloween and my daughters are so excited. They love all things Halloween–pumpkins, monsters, ghosts, goblins, and more!

We went on our weekly Walmart shopping trip last week and noticed that the LG K7’s were only $49.88 (Rollback from $89.88). We asked the Walmart Family Mobile rep more about the phone and what plan would be best for our family. With the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan, you get Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE plus a free movie on VUDU every month ($7 value) per line for $49.88. This plan is perfect for our family, because we use so much data! Plus, the free movie rental is perfect for family movie nights! We can get a free movie and watch it on our TV via Chromecast! Also, my out of pocket was really low compared to other prepaid carriers – only $19.88 to get started (Nano starter kit on rollback from $25)!

Just in time for Halloween, the new movie Ghostbusters is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD! We bought the Extended Edition on Blu-ray because of the fact that it comes with over 15 more minutes not seen in theaters, plus over 3 hours of hilarious extras. I was raised on SNL, so I’ve been soooo excited for this movie for a long, long time!! Watch the Ghostbusters trailer here!

We decided to have throw a Ghostbusters themed party to go along with our Ghostbusters movie night! We made white chocolate covered strawberries that looked like ghosts, skeletons and mummies. And we painted pumpkins!! It was such a blast and my daughters enjoyed every minute.

  1. Dip your strawberries in white chocolate then place them on a cold plate or wax paper.
  2. Put your dipped strawberries in the fridge for 30 minutes. (For mummies, use a toothpick to drip the chocolate across the strawberries.)
  3. Once cool, take the strawberries out and use black gel to draw eyes and mouths.
  4. Let it dry, then you’re done!!

For this fun craft, you just need paint, paintbrushes and pumpkins! We got our pumpkins at a local pumpkin patch for less than $5 and got our painting supplies at Walmart! I just opened up the paint and let the girls do whatever they wanted… It was so much fun to watch. They had a BLAST!

The finished product, which is now displayed with our Fall & Halloween decor:
