    I always call my dad, even as an adult going to the pumpkin patch is the best.  Looking forward to trying the Vampire Kisses too, look like fun!

    Love to decorate my porch very spooky, hand out candy to the kids and see all the creative costumes.

    Last year it rained so instead of trick-or-treating we did a scavenger hunt for candy around the house.  My girls enjoyed it and I plan to do the same thing this Halloween due to covid19.

    My oldest child is at an age where he wants to pick out his costume. This makes Halloween more exciting! Plus, I always enjoy seeing what other children in the neighborhood come up with. You can't leave out the teens either because at least they are trick or treating versus getting in trouble!
