Oh how I LOVE Halloween!

It's's of my very favorite holidays.  HaLlOwEeN!!!!      I don't even dress up myself, but I adore everything about this holiday.  Crisp air, a night out with the family, parades, kids in costumes, pumpkins....and CANDY!

Anyway....I digress as always :)   One of my FAVORITE things is helping my children pick out their costumes and seeing what others do.  I love the out-of-the-box creative ideas that are homemade and while I yearn to make my children's costumes each year...they want store bought.  Oh well.  Here are a few from years past.
