Halloween gets festive around my house. I'm not shy about how much I love this holiday and I love a good Halloween party! Tricks and treats and dressing up and being silly, spooky, or sweet. It brings out the kid in me. My kids love it too. We threw a frightfully fun Kids' Halloween Costume Party to celebrate this fun holiday.
