So tonight is the big night for tick-or-treating, eating tons of candy and attempting to get the kids in bed at a reasonable hour.
Although I am unsure about the last part, I do know my kids are really excited to go trick or treating in the neighbourhood and get as much candy as possible.
I'm a big sucker when it comes to Halloween. I start decorating at the beginning of October and I have our costumes bought at least three weeks beforehand...
I thought I would share with readers exactly how much candy our household now has since Halloween is over. This picture represents one of three bowls we have in our home. That's right THREE bowls of this size brimming with candy!
We had to put it all on top of the fridge - as our children kept trying to "help themselves" to the stash throughout the day (and night). I am pretty sure I have gained a couple of pounds since the bowls have been in the house. Because although the children can no longer reach the candy - I still can........
I can't believe Halloween is already here! I have to admit - it is my favourite time of year. I have always made Halloween fun at my house.
I decorate it inside and out. In our driveway, it is lined with glowing sculls, in our garden are tombstones and at the doorway is a six foot dancing Frankenstein who sings the "oldies". Inside is filled with cobwebs, skeletons, pumpkins and witches....
You know, I have to admit, Halloween is one of my most favourite days of the year. I am like a little kid all over again when we pick out our costumes. We have many, many decorations inside and outside of our home. We are the "fun" house to go to with the driveway lined with skeleton heads, tombstones, and a six foot Frankenstein that sings and dances.
We don't scare at our house, but make it fun for all the trick or treaters. It's taken my husband some time to adjust to my love for the day - but now with both the children full of excitement about it's arrival - he has definately warmed up to it.
