Question of the Week

Pin It




Remember.. I want you to answer the question in the comment section too!
AND
if  you have a question to ask for an upcoming week add that in the comments too, if you ask a question and I use it you will win a prize!!


Here's this week's question...

Do you do anything to celebrate Halloween?


Connie- I guess I ask this question this year because I always LOVED Halloween!! But as my kids are now older I just don't care as much. No pumpkin patch or corn maze! No one wants to carve pumpkins with me. No one wants to take me to a party where I can dress up, and no wants to go to a haunted house with me. So this year I am carving my own pumpkin, watching tons of scary movies on tv (alone) and passing out candy to all the adorable kiddos who come knocking at my door. I sound so pathetic right? LOL! Maybe if I have the energy I will decorate the house. I used to make it really scary complete with music and black strobe light!

Angela- We do a haunted house as a family and then hubby and I get an adult night to a bigger haunted house! I always have great intentions on making things for the house and always run out of time 
unsure emoticon


Veronica- Craftywise, I like to do a project to include the children previous year's pictures. Once I did a mini album, the second year I did a spooky altered clock, the third a haunted house canvas. Another year I did a spooky house shadow box. Always including pictures. This year if a spooky banner, but I am doing a second one that does have the children pictures....

As tradition, well we take the children to a birthday party of a dear friend of them and then go treat or tricking to their neighborhood.

Daphne- We carve or paint pumpkins. My youngest son, who is 18 still walks around in costume with a few friends. This year we are going to a friend's wedding. I think it is neat that she is getting married on Halloween.

ok, It's your turn!!
