Halloween Fun, Features, Pinners Utah, and Snickerdoodle Create Bake Make Link Party

Howdy and welcome to Snickerdoodle Link Party!  Our weather is in full "autumn" mode here in Northern Nevada--we had quite a wind and rain storm this week and leaves and pine needles are everywhere!  Not to fear though, the temps are to go back into the 70's by tomorrow (probably just long enough to be nice so we can clean up the yard before the next storm).

Just so you know, if you are interested in attending Pinners Conference Utah November 3rd and 4th this year, you really should get your tickets!  We have info, the link to register, and a DISCOUNT CODE for tickets!  Oh, did I mention that Two Chicks and a Mom are presenting a class, too?  We are--hope to see you there!
Follow this LINK for all the details!

Party in Your PJs 179 and Chickens

Hi and thanks for stopping by to visit!  It's time for another Party in Your PJs!

Have you decided on Halloween costumes either for yourself or your kids?  If not, you still have time to check out Oriental Trading's  Halloween costumes and decor, party supplies, etc.  As Brand Ambassadors for Oriental Trading, Staci received some pretty neat Star Wars costumes for her, Jon, and of course little Parker!**All opinions are Staci's even though we were provided with the costumes at no cost to us**

Ok, onto the Features!

A Fireman's Wife has such a cute Halloween party appetizer--Broomstick Appetizers!
These are great!

I love chickens--we always had some in the backyard when I was a kid in Florida.  I just love them!
Stone Cottage Adventures shares photos of their Backyard Beauties!


A Grace Full Life  shares how she sets a fine Thanksgiving table with dollar store items.
