Its that time again. Time for the kids in my world to dress up in costume and race from one house to the next, knocking on doors and begging for candy.

Time to carve up a pumpkin into some sort of ghoulishly frightening rendition of a face. And when its cold outside on All Hallow’s Eve, I make the kids some hot cocoa to sip in front of a fire while they dump their treats all over the floor to see what they’ve gotten.

Halloween hasn’t ever been my favorite holiday. I don’t think its even in the top 5. I mean, I enjoyed all of the fun when I was young – don’t get me wrong. It’s just never ranked up there for me and as a result, we don’t “decorate” our house much for it. Now I have some friends who will spend a couple of weeks planning and executing a plan to transform their houses into either fun scary or SCARY scary places for kids to trick-or-treat. They LOVE Halloween! But I guess it’s either in you or it isn’t. For me it just isn’t.

My favorite parts about Halloween are helping my kids (who are ALMOST too old to do it anymore!) decide on a costume and change into character.

I love the colors.

I love the very young children when they come to the door, dressed up by their parents, unsure of what to make of the whole thing.

I love telling the kids how great they look and/or guessing what or who they are supposed to be.
