Fall feels like it has officially arrived when pumpkins begin to make appearances on front steps. It is especially fun to see the transformation from robust orange vegetables to scary faced creatures staring back with illuminated geometric eyes and wide mouthed grins.

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…

Who says treats are limited to candy? No one wants to be “that house” during Halloween, but there are plenty of little trinkets and snacks kids will enjoy that aren’t packed with sugar. Read the rest at our blog!

Last year, I was taken by surprise.
I went shopping for Halloween decorations in mid-October, only to be met by bare shelves, a couple of sad-looking skeletons and a few assorted window clings.
Primarily, I saw a lot of Christmas angels and sparkling candy canes.
I'm sure I had the same look of outrage on my face as when I went out looking for snow pants in November and found shelves of T-shirts and ads for bikinis. But that's a different story.
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

I love Halloween. I love it so much I decided to head up my little boy's class party for the holiday. Now, assuming that someday you, too, will want to head up a class party, allow me to share a few things I learned:

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. As soon as I read about it, I was on the…Continue
