Ok, looks like I am the first one...that is okay :)! I think the thing that I love most about Halloween is that we goto our church to participate in a fun program. It is called "Halloween Harvest for the Hungry", we go door to door collecting canned goods for our metro food bank. This is run through our churches Youth Group :)!It is an annual event and we participate in it every year. Don't worry we don't turn away candy, so yes the kids still get candy too.
I am adding the link to my blog right now :)!

I'm looking forward to Halloween this year because my brothers are coming to visit and it's my older brother's birthday. It's been a while since my parents will have all three of us together.

And who could forget the candy! I love candy. :o)

Cyndi on 11:21 AM CDT said...

What I love most about Halloween? My sister works at an emergency shelter for children. Every year she brings a few kids to my house and we take the kids around the neighborhood to get some candy. I love being around them.

I also want to get a chance to say, that I love your blog, you always have such wonderful creations. Thanks for the chance to win some candy. I've also posted a link on my site.

Jenn on 11:28 AM CDT said...

I am looking forward to Halloween because it makes the second year of marriage for my husband and I!

buzzy on 11:32 AM CDT said...

A tradition we started years ago when our boys were small was to make some candy and take it to some of the elderly folks from our church. The kids still had the fun of dressing up but our focus was to bless some folks that were often overlooked and spend some time with them. My boys are too "old" to dress up now but they still want to tag along with their sisters as we continue our tradition. It has finally become a day to look forward to for us.

catdidit on 11:38 AM CDT said...

OHhhhh what awesome candy Donna! Pick me! LOL! I hope you have a wonderful trip and cant wait to hear all about it my friend!

As for Halloween, I look forward to the week long of scarey movies! and seeing all the little kids dressed up! I used to enjoy dressing my daughter up, but dont have that to do anymore, lol!

Do you want a different post for when we get it on our blog? Ill get mine up here in just a bit!

Sharri on 12:32 PM CDT said...

Donna,
Awesome goodies!
Have a great vacation!

I am looking forward to taking my daughter trick or treating. Last year I dressed up with her and we had so much fun! She has probably changed her mind on what she is going to dress up as about 50 times! I do not have one yet, any suggestions for a homemade costume?

I'm so excited to see my 1 year old in his costume! He is going to look so cute!

Karen Robaidek said...

What I love most about Halloween is taking my kids trick-or-treating. My older two have outgrown the door-to-door thing, so I am cherishing the time I have left to take my younger two. Thanks for the chance to win!

jackie on 1:33 PM CDT said...

trick or treaters they are so darn cute - thanks for chance to win

Mary Duffek on 1:44 PM CDT said...

Awesome candy!

Well we as a family do not celebrate Halloween. We do however try to go to Chucky Cheese every Halloween, since that is a restaurant that doesn't decorate for the holidays. My boys love this little tradition.

Jo on 2:14 PM CDT said...

I love to see all the little kids dressed up for Halloween, but I especially love that I don't have to go out anymore because my son is told old for trick or treat! I can stay in the warm house and just give out the candy. :)

Jan Butler said...

It is always great to open the door to see what creature is on the other side. Then for the gremlins to actually say, "Thank you!" after getting their treats is a treat in return.
Thanks, Jan

I'm looking forward to how darn cute Tinkerbelle and Peter Pan will look when I actually get the costumes done!

Colleen on 8:11 PM CDT said...

I am looking forward to trick-or-treating with a group of neighbors and then gather at one house after to eat chili and let the kids sit around and swap candy.

Jennifer on 8:19 PM CDT said...

Well, blog candy is year round...not just halloween. Best of all no calories.

I'm looking forward to trick or treating with my boys who are both autistic and for the first time, they both are "into" the trick or treating fun. What a blessing to me :)

Michelle on 8:24 PM CDT said...

I'm looking forward to our traditional Halloween. I start chili in the crockpot about 8 am and smell it bubbling away all day. Grandparents come over around 5, kids do a fashion show, lots of photos snapped. Trick or treat time then warm up with yummy chili and spicy cornbread. Dessert is cake and what candy we pilfer from the kids' loot. lol

vistagirl on 8:43 PM CDT said...

I LOVE seeing all the bity kids--you know the ones. They are being carried by parents or are just starting to toddle. Last year, I had the cutest little guy come up and say "thank you" instead of "trick or treat".

This year I am looking forward to dressing up like an Angel with my daughter and seeing her reaction to all the costumes and festivities. Last year was her first Halloween, but she was living in the NICU at the hospital, so this is her first Halloween "outside". ;) I linked up your blog on my post for today. It's here: http://angiesaspiringart.blogspot.com/2008/10/birthdays-and-raks.html

I look forward to the candy! definitely the scary movies! turning off all the lights and getting scared!!!!

Susan on 5:19 PM CDT said...

We don't have children so no costumes. And we live out in the woods so we never have trick-or-treaters. But I do like to carve pumpkins anyway and see them lit up on the porch at night. That's my fave thing about Halloween.

Thanks for the opportunity to win your blog candy.

Gigi said...

Halloween this year means an evening of rest from two weeks of constant appointments, committments, etc :-) My children are grown and married with their own children, but I would love to see how the little ones react to Trick 'O Treating around their neighborhood. The blog candy looks wonderful; thanks for your generosity.

I am looking forward to seeing little kids all dressed up and trick or treating. They are so cute!

Colleen K. said...

I am looking forward to attending the annual Autumn Festival at my church which is an alternative to treat or treating. There are games, prizes, and goodies to eat.

I am looking forward most of all to seeing my son dress up as a mouse and march around in his first costume parade at school. Unfortunately I can't see him in person because I have to work. My hubby will be video taping it for me.

Kim on 5:30 AM CDT said...

Well, since my kids are now adults and away from home, my favorite thing about Halloween is seeing the small children all dressed up in their costumes and so excited!! I really miss those days!

Awesome blog candy, thank you so much for the chance to win!

I was looking forward to spending the evening with my 20 month old nephew and seeing him in his lion costume, and I did! We had a great time with him tonight. :)

forgetfulone on 8:34 PM CDT said...

Since I'm not feeling well, I am just looking forward to Halloween being over. My twins are 12 now, so there's no costumes or cute pix, and they're doing separate things this year, for the first time ever, so it's kinda sad. I think I'll just go scrap a previous year's halloween.

windycindy on 12:03 AM CDT said...

We always have lots of cute small children come trick or treating. This year we had around 200! Our Beagle puppy named Daisy, was dressed as a Bumblebee. The children really enjoyed seeing her. Daisy didn't like the Bee Wings on her costume, though!
Please enter me in your delightful blog candy drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

Thanks for the opportunity to win some candy first off! I so look forward to Halloween each year. We live in a Hilly area only our neighborhood is flat. We also live next door to a person to dresses as batman and puts on a full production from the rooftop, with fog machines, light insignia shining in the trees of bat symbol, walkie talkies to relay childs name and send candie down a long pipe into a bucket for ea child to retrieve candy from batman! We decorate our house all up also (not super heros though). Our kids are grown and gone, but oh we sooo love all the little ones who come to get candy! They are soo sweet and so darling in all their outfits. Our candy bill is outrageous...but worth it for the fun. We get about 300 trick or treaters at least, and no matter how much candy we buy we always run out!! LOL It is something we totally enjoy every year...

When my son was young, I use to like to make his Halloween costumes. My favorite was the year he was Humpty Dumpty, a favorite character of his when he was two. He is now almost twenty so the costume days are way over, but I do enjoy getting a care package together for him at college to celebrate Halloween.

Anonymous said...

We started a tradition by trick-or-treating at a neighbor's house who has NEVER had any trick-or-treaters! (We live in the country, we have never had one either...)Anyhow, she is a para-ed at the gradeschool, and my 2 children have teased her now for 2 years about tricking her...so...it's becoming a tradition, and we all look forward to stopping by!
