My girls, Halloween 2009 (aka the year they went full on spooky).
We are crazy about Halloween at our house! I love helping my girls pick out their costumes, although now that they are older they steer away from the cute, twirly, princess type costumes to embrace the genuinely spooky and downright scary. LE SIGH.
We have Halloween traditions we look forward to every fall. We trick or treat in our neighborhood, of course, but we have also gone trunk or treating with the girls’ cousins at their church. My girls also carve a jack o’lantern with my sister and no Halloween would be complete without the annual viewing of Charlie Brown’s Great Pumpkin on DVD, which I remember from my own childhood. We also have a great collection of Halloween books (one of our favorites is the classic Georgie’s Halloween by Robert Bright).
I’ve partnered with Fanta and BlogFrog to bring you a fun giveaway this Halloween season as a Fanta Scary Good Mom. The winner will receive an awesome prize package that will give you everything you need to get the Halloween party started, including fun Halloween lights, a pumpkin carving kit, a black light party light, and a hilariously wicked fun inflatable drink cooler to keep all your beastly beverages chilled.
All you need to do to enter is answer: What are your favorite Halloween party tips, tricks, and memories?
By entering your answer below you will be entered to win one of 15 Halloween Prize Packages (each a $100 value) from Fanta, including:
- $25 Amex Card
- Purple and Orange Lights (my girls set up a play Halloween town in our den with these)
- Glow in the Dark Spider Web
- Fun Halloween Theme Inflatable Cooler
- Battery-Operated Color Changing Pumpkin Light (I can’t wait to try this!)
- Purple Spider Pint Glass
- Pumpkin Carving Kit
- Black Light Bulb
- Door Mat Talker (My girls LOVE this thing although, fair warning, you might want to hide this sucker until Halloween because the temptation to play it over and over is too great…wink.)
Have fun and good luck!
