Thought I'd jump away from the other subjects and turn to our spooky spirits for the weekend.
Does anyone enjoy dressing in costume and going out on the town?

Do you enjoy scaring the trick or treaters with spooky idea's you do at home? - like the many people who pretend to be a scarecrow and jump out of the chair when trick or treaters come to their door (I always loved that trick).

Do you enjoy buying/making the kid's costumes?

Halloween is my favorite holiday. I love dressing up and going out. It's kind of like acting out a character for just one night and I have a blast doing so. I'm not usually home on trick or treat night, we live in a small rural town and rarely get children who come and we are also taking our children out and about as well.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!! Play it safe.

daizy,

I went to a Halloween party last night. The woman who threw the party is a "Martha Stewart". WOW was her house decked out. Gargoyles, blinking lights, spider webs, bats, big aliens, draculas, tomb stones in the front yard, pumpkins carved like spiders...it was a Halloween wonderland.

These are a few of my favorite things too! To me, it's about imagination, creativity, and being the kid in me.

Thanks for the post - SC

I too love Halloween. When my two older children were young I always dressed up with them...one year we were California Raisins, another charactors from the Wizard of Oz, Muppets, and many many others. My youngest is nine this year...he is a lab assistant that has been attacked by the lab mice. he looks so cute...i found a lab coat in a thrift store and sewed those mice you buy for your cats to play with all over the front. With his blood from the bites and hair standing on end and a mouse hanging from his black framed glasses...he looks good. 🙂 One year he was Frankenstien and I the bride of Frankenstien, another year he was a Mummy with white sheets and everything...by the end of the night he was dirty and unraveling and did he ever look like a real mummmy! We go to an area for Trick or Treating that the neighborhood really goes all out for. I love it. We live in such a remote part of the country (dirt roads to dirt roads) so we get zero activity at our home. This year my son says he wants to go to a Haunted House...finally I get to visit one again this year...no gore though (he's too young) just some good old fashion scare. Have fun tonight and i know Zach and I will. 🙂

My oldest son was a policeman again...he was a policeman last year too. My youngest son was a clown. It was his first year trick or treating. We go in my mother's neighborhood where I grew up. We know everyone there better than my current neighborhood. My little policeman would go to a door and say, "trick or treat or you're under arrest...I'll under arrest you with my handcuffs." It was so cute. My little clown wasn't sure about all the people, but was willing to hold out his bucket after he realized he gets candy at all the doors. Every time he got a sucker he would take it out of his bucket and show it to everyone including the people at the next house. He loved all the decorations. They didn't scare him one bit. One house had a wolf head on top of a stuffed body. The eyes blinked and glowed and it growled. My little clown went up to it and pointed to the nose and eyes to identify them. He's learning about eyes and noses right now. He talked to this one woman about the flowers by her door for a while, so she picked one and gave it to him. He just said, "bye bye" and put it in his bucket with the rest of his treats. I only took them up and down 4 blocks thinking my 21 mos old couldn't handle much more, but as we were reaching my mother's house, he started running up to a lit up house that we had already been to. He was more than ready to keep going. It was so much fun. I hope he will handle seeing Santa this year just as well as he handled all the ghosts and goblins. Last year he was too scared to sit on Santa, so I didn't get his picture...oh well. Great topic!!!
