Why I painted my pumpkin teal this year

Halloween is kind of a big deal at our house. I’m not afraid to admit that we have more totes of Halloween decorations than we do for Christmas.

We enjoy dressing up, whether it’s simply throwing on some masks or being a bit more creative with theme costumes that involve a mixture of handmade and store bought aspects such as our Star Wars theme from a couple years ago.



Something else that is actually a real big deal and not something to joke around about is food allergies. I have made sure for years to buy peanut free chocolate bars and usually also have rockets in our stash of treats to hand out.

But something I didn’t really think about before was those kids that have severe allergies and can’t actually eat ANY of the food treats available.

Halloween: This Or That?

Halloween just happens to be my families favorite time of year..we actually on more Halloween decorations than Christmas ones. We love decorating our yard and our house, which reminds me that the decorating hasn't started so we better get with it! 

Also, I just have to share that my daughter said to me the other day: "Mom, when is Halloween and Christmas and Easter?  I need these Holidays in my life then I will not fuss as much. I mean I might fuss a bit, but mostly I have fun. Remember, Easter last time I fussed just a little bit and was really happy."

Apparently now I just need to declare life one great big Holiday and there will be no more fussing..or at least only a little bit..

Getting onto the prompt I chose from Mama Kat's weekly writing prompt, here are my Halloween "This or That" answers.
