Halloween Count Down Calendar!

How do you cram so many fun Halloween treats and traditions into a short 31 days?! Easy! You make an advent calendar! You can do the full 31 days like me or do the 13 days of Halloween count down. Either way you can get tons of fun Halloween things done! I made calendars for 4 of my girl friends and each day we have been doing each task and sending pictures to each other. It's really been quite fun! I thought I could share with you some of the ideas I had for my calendar and how they are playing out! Enjoy!

Day 1 : Make a Black & Blue
Black and Blue's are one of my favorite drinks to make! They look so cool and are surprisingly delicious!
