My Favorite Holiday

I know it may sound strange that Halloween is my favorite holiday, but it is. Don't get me wrong, I love all the other holidays too, but there is something so special about this time of year. When I was a kid it was all about getting candy and going out after dark. Now it's about seeing my own kids getting excited about the very same things. I love making their costumes, painting their faces, decorating the's wonderful. And probably the best thing about it for me is that as quickly as it arrives, it is just as quickly gone. I have never been too excited about holidays that require so much preparation (Christmas) and then leave you feeling down when they are over.

With Halloween it's just the right level of excitement and then it's time to move on until next year. So I'm off now to prepare for my final Halloween party. It's for my five-year-old daughter and she is quite excited. I've included a photo from my eldest son's Halloween party last Saturday. This is the table with all the goodies on it. Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween. BOOOOOOO!

Oh, by the way. Guest blogger KC Dyer will be posting tomorrow. Make sure to stop by and check out what she has to say.
