    Now that my boys are older, we like to decorate the front yard, project a Halloween movie on our front window, have a bonfire and give out candy to all the little ones.

    My favorite part of Halloween is seeing how excited my kids get when dressing up and going trick n treating. We'll do a candy hunt around the house this year.

    I love celebrating Halloween with my nephew by trick or treating and going to Halloween parties.

    My favorite way to celebrate Halloween is to gather my grands and trick or treat inside. They go from room to room where someone is waiting to give them their treats. There's a candy hunt and multiple more games they play. They can't eat their candy until they eat food first. Of course that part doesn't always work out tee hee.

    My fave tradition is trick-or-treating. It's gong to be sad when my daughter deems herself too old to go anymore.

    We usually go to my sister-in-laws house, have dinner (usually Mexican take out) & then we take my son and maybe some of his cousins trick or treating. It's always fun!

    WE have a tradition of ordering pizza for dinner on Halloween and then we enjoy handing out candy to the kids.
