Halloween is probably my favorite holiday. Each year as it approaches, I find myself getting more excited, happy and more creative as Halloween crafts and costume ideas come to mind.
I also find myself getting more annoyed by people who don't understand the holiday. The topic has come up several times on different mom forums where I am a member. Over and over again I read...
"We don't celebrate Halloween because it's against our religious beliefs." or
"We don't want to…

Last year, I was taken by surprise.

So this year,I…Continue

Once again one of my very favorite holidays has passed me by faster than I could say, "Boo!" Yes, Halloween has come and gone and left me with a massive candy overdose. I seriously don't think I'll be able to look at a Twix bar the same without puking ever again (at least not until next week anyway). The festive weekend was certainly chalked full of all kinds of fun while it lasted though.
It all started with our annual adults-only costume party, which…Continue

Hallow een is one of our favorite holidays; we go all out each year! Dressing up is serious business, even for the adults. Connecticut lawmaker Tim Larson has made an interesting proposition this year – designating Halloween as the last Saturday of October versus the 31st.
