It is my favorite holiday for many reasons, the main one being that it really doesn't have any stress involved unlike Christmas. It is just fun and enjoyable without any pressure.
I am all about TRADITION and so I have many associated with Halloween. One being our Halloween dinner we have each year the Monday before Halloween. It has been the same menu for years. It wouldn't be tradition if it wasn't! We eat by candlelight and listen to the classic Halloween music CD's that I have collected over the years. The faves are Monster Mash, They're Coming to Take Me Away (my personal fave....some days I WISH they would!), Purple People Eater, etc. And of course we lots of dry ice is MUST! There is something about boys and dry ice that just blends so well. lol
The good news is he tried out this week WITH A BROKEN HAND AND CAST and made the team!!! Whew! Even more amazing is the coach really cut the team this year and five or six that were on it last year were cut but Taylor made it playing one handed! Only 7 sophomores made it this year so we are feeling very fortunate. Shows he can play with one hand behind his back!
On Halloween night my parents always come up to eat dinner with us. I usually fix hot soup served in pumpkin bread bowls and some spooky other things to go along with it. This year I ran out of time and didn't make as many creepy things as I had hoped.
My cute mom and the PURPLE SPIDER CAKE!!!
My cute Jaida!!! It wouldn't be Halloween if she didn't stop by! I always have a very special treat for her when she does! We are chocolate sistas!!! She has been my little chocolate pal since she was practically a newborn! LOVE THIS GIRL!!!
Hope your HALLOWEEN was as SPOOKTACULAR as mine!!!!
