    Every year I make up candy treat bags for the kids. I have been doing it since I was a child but this year I'm not sure what's going to happen. I also always watch a scary movie on Halloween night too.

    Our neighborhood is having a costume parade for the kids with individual goody bags for each child at the end of the route! This way, kids aren't having close contact with a lot of different adults at front doors! Hoping this is a successful and safe event!

    For the past few years, when it is close to Halloween, we like to have family members over for a spaghetti dinner. They like the spaghetti and I like to show off my Halloween decorating.
