That sounds like such a wonderful tradition you have with your family! It's always great to look forward to something like that, especially for the kids.
I personally don't really have any Halloween traditions, except for the usual giving out candy. When I was a kid and teen, though, all my friends and sister's friends would come to my house and my father would put all of our make-up on, since he is very artistic. He made our faces look great and usually scary. I don't have any children; I have one sister who had a baby, but that niece is only 16 months old so she isn't aware of Halloween yet. But I know it will be fun when she gets older and I'm sure my sis will have some traditions for her. My mother, though, always counts every person that comes to the door....every year.
That's a great idea to hand out Play-doe instead of candy. I've thought about getting something other than candy, but for me right now, would be too expensive.
Pre-congradulations on your soon-to-be grandbaby!!!
That sounds like a blast with the grand kids Rosie, congrats. on the new one to come. I hope it all goes well. I just had my 4th grandaughter last month. 4 girls 0 boys so far. I WANT A BOY. lol. Don't think it will happen though.
Anyway what we have been doing for halloween is the church gets together and we put together games like they have at the fair. Like ring toss and throwing darts at balloons. all kind of games like that. Than the youth does little skits. Nothing real drastic. We have hot dogs and chips. Hay rides, door prizes. and it's nice because the kids are off the streets. Everyone of course gets candy every time they play a game.
That's what we normally do. However this year is the first year in this town and the church is still real small so it would be too much of an under taking. Maybe next year. This year I think it will just behanding out candy to all the little grimlins. All my grandbabies live in different states so I won't be seeing them. Hopfully I will at least get some pics of their costumes.
let us know when you have that G-baby!
