Fanta Floats: Halloween Treats

Part of Halloween is enjoying the little things, decorations, fall weather, time together, a good scare, and a sweet treat. This sweet treat is perfect for a family night. You can lay back and enjoy a fun or spooky flick and enjoy a sweet Fanta Float Halloween treat.

We found this sweet idea at Belle of the Kitchen. Ashlyn knows how to make a fun and yummy sweet treat. Head on over to  Belle of the Kitchen for the full recipe.

We paid it with some fun popcorn mixed with candy corn while we enjoyed a fantastic family flick, Hocus Pocus. In our family we have movies that make us feel that the season is actually here and we are ready to enjoy it, and for Halloween that movie is Hocus Pocus. If you haven’t seen it you should check it out. Its a great family film that isn’t too scary for the little kids, and is still fun enough for the older kids. Its a family favorite for us and we cannot imagine Halloween without it. It reminds my husband and I of our childhood, and every year it is so much fun to share it with our kids. Now I know how my parents felt sharing A Charlie Brown Christmas with us. Enjoy your traditions folks, and may they last forever!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

The fantastic beasts movie

JK Rowling is back, and she is better than ever. If your son is a fan of Harry Potter, or loves worlds made up of magic and excitement, then you are not going to want to miss out on this amazing movie.

Fantastic beasts

The new series of magic in JK Rowling’s magical world follows Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) on his magical journey around the world in 1926 to document every magical creature he can find.  When he arrives in New York he bumps in to a non-Maj (american for muggle). His case full of magical creatures is misplaced, and many escape. Now he must find a way, with a little help from some new magical and non-maj friends to get them back. The adventure they are all in for will cross worlds, and bring about a whole new generation to the wonder of magic.
