There are those who claim to hate Halloween, and to be honest I can understand why they might feel that way. There are parts of the holiday I'm not terribly fond of myself.
But we've worked to make Halloween fun at our house. Perhaps it helps that we have two little girls who dress up as puppies and kitties instead of some kind of undead creature. About the only thing that really causes problems around here is the candy - the girls don't hold their sugar well, and artificial colors have a Jekyll and Hyde effect on them.
One thing we have done through the years is to have a Spooky Dinner for Halloween. This year Kara will be in Dallas on the 31st, so we had our Spooky Dinner tonight.
We had Vampire Apples and Shepherd's Brain Pie. By pumpkinlight, of course.
