Trick or Treat,
Smell my feet...
Give me something good to eat!

Do you ever wonder where such a phrase that involves the smelling of feet came from?!(or is it just me who questions these things!)

Designer Andrea Budjack agreed that the smelling of feet.. may not be the most fun thing about Halloween, however the treats most definitely are! And Designer Linda Albrecht has a great way for you to countdown to the most frightful of holidays!!

  3. Amazing projects! My family celebrates with Fright Night at the local air museum and fall festival at church. The air museum is most fun because they do ghost tours.

  4. That is a very neat Idea!! You can even use the same idea for a Christmas one :) But my daughter and I carve our pumpkin the night before Halloween so that way it's fresh. We also make the Halloween treat bags the night before as well. Hope everyone has a great day!!

  19. We have an annual family potluck night where we bring ghoulish food to share. One year the chili actually "glowed" ... and sometimes you have to shut your eyes to figure out what flavor is under the edible gore. But ALWAYS lots of laughs and giggles!

  37. I dress in costume when i hand out candy. The kids don't even see me putting candy in there bags, they are looking at my eyes the whole time. I use to set the min pin dog in the cage at the door and the kids lost all control and wanted to pet the dog when they came to the door. Some of the little ones did not want to leave!

    Our family traditions are going to change this year as my two little ones are both old enough to trick or treat. It should be fun and interesting to see how it all works out!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Our city hosts Halloween in the park. The kids get to trick or treat and the adults get coupons from local vendors... Then everyone heads back to my house for a Chili supper and games. It's a tradition and we love it!

  55. When my kids were younger we used to have Halloween traditions. No grandkids yet so we aren't as into Halloween as we used to be. One year, I cut my husbands hair on the front porch during Trick-or-treat time and put ketchup all over my husband. We invited the kids for the next hair cut and they wanted no part in it but it was fun and cute. Thanks for the chance to win!
