Halloween Haunted House (Dollhouse)

Hi, I haven't posted in forever, but I wanted to share this Halloween Haunted House that I built with my 8 year old son:

 It is made from 4 cardboard boxes, taped together.  You also cut off some of the box flaps to make the roof for the house.  (Link to instructions below).
 Then we added candy corn lights and taped them to the box where necessary.
 Next we took out all of our Halloween decorations and went wild!
 You could do a different theme for each section, but we just sort of made it up as we went along, funner that way!
 Pirate hat on the top, why not?
 They're everywhere ;)
 Need an extra hand? ;)
 Pumpkin Patch!
 And yep, that tag is from Amy at Living Locurto!

After Halloween, we will leave the candy corn lights and fall decor in the house.  Then for Christmas, we will switch it over to a Christmas theme.  I have even ordered tree lights from Zulily and I am hoping to punch a hole in each wall to have a lit tree in each section of the house.  

The instructions for building this house are easy as pie and you can find them at Planetpals.

If you make a house, I would love to see it!

Giveaway: Progresso High Fiber Soup & Mugs

Good morning Friends,
It's that time again...and this is a really nice giveaway, too, sponsored by

I received a sample of Progresso High Fiber Chicken Soup to try and my teenage son offered to try it out for us...he loves Chicken Soup and like all teenage boys, he LOVES to eat, so it was a perfect fit.

Z gives the soup a big thumb's up and said that the noodles were good and the taste of the broth was really delicious (he calls it the 'juice' haha). He ate it all up lickety split, so I will definitely be buying more for him.

They also included 2 HUGE Soup mugs, that fit very comfortably in your hands and 2 spoons, too. How handy!

To enter to win this great giveaway, just tell me what your favorite soup is. That's it!

I will be choosing a winner on Thursday, so this is a quickie!

Good Luck!!!
