Low and behold! Why Halloween is so amazeballs:
1) The smells: Apple cider slowly boiling on the stove, spice candles burning, the crisp air of cooler nights, leaves falling (unless you're in Texas... Where we're still green), the smell of cutting open a pumpkin for carving... All of the smells associated with Halloween are fantastic!

2) Two words: Candy corn.
3) Decorating! Whether you like to keep it classy or get gory, decorating for this fun holiday is a blast.
4) Horror films: I love them all! Only a small few are truly scarey to me, the bulk are entertaining, and the rest are just hilarious. Whenever I'm a bit overdosed on the "bad" horror films, we pull up a classic on Netflix. Seriously, check those out (especially if you're prone to get scared - these are just great classic films!)
5) Dressing up: Now, I'm not a big fan of dressing myself up... But man do I love dressing up my dogs and baby! I had grand plans for Henry's first costume, but dang ol' Tejas is still 90 degrees and all baby costumes are furry animals. Heat + fur = no bueno for Henry, so I had to make other plans. But look at these dogs!

Happy Halloween! I hope all you young, kid-less readers are going out to a wild party tonight. The hubs and I will be taking our small flock of two and four legged babies around the neighborhood for some treats, then (hopefully) checking out some kiddos that come knocking on our door for some candy.
