What Are Your Halloween Plans?

Halloween is my FAVE holiday so I go all out for it. I take off the weekend of/before and do as much as we can! We do parties, take him trick or treating at the mall and then take him out TWICE in the neighborhood. We take him earlier in the evening at my dad's neighborhood-he lives in an AWESOME neighborhood where everyone goes all out and decorates and gives out king size candy bars. Plus, a lot of the neighbors do little haunted house things in their garage and backyards. Then we go somewhere else (and we all do costume changes). Last year my dad came along. It was awesome. DH thought I was nuts when he first met me because I decorated the shit out of his apartment, lol. His grandfather got a real kick of it, though. 


So, what are your plans? Does your community do anything fun for kids?

Oh, and my dad normally watches DS that night and DH and I camp out in his basement (which is normally obnoxiously decorated bc its got his bar down there and everything) and go out in the porch and hang out in the hot tub and watch horror movies on the tv on the deck and eat candy. Its like, my favorite day out of the year.

We usually just take our boys trick or treating might go some friends of ours and their little boy. I would love to do more but dh works alot. And I can't handle 3 special needs kids all on my own.

no one around us dies anything! they ate pretty lame..and my son says he's to old for trick or treating
but my husband and I go to a cool dress up party at this museum and it's roof top and all through out the exhibits and they make a haunted section ..so that's cool and keeps me excited for Halloween still..(:

A Christian church does a carnival. I take him there. We walk and it only takes us about 5-10 minutes to get there.

I take him trick or treating twice too. Early at some rich neighborhood where they hand out give candy bars and bags and in our neighborhood.
