Thanksgiving is great, of course... we all see our families and eat tons of yummy food and set aside the day to be thankful for everything that we have... but if you know me at all, you know that I am sort of obsessed with Halloween. I get excited for Halloween before October even gets here; I start thinking about parties and costumes before any of the stores start putting Halloween items out.
We started the tradition of having a Halloween Party every year because we love it so much and we found that, for adults, we didn't have a whole lot of options that still allowed us to dress up and be silly without drinking the night away.. (That may be your style, but it is not mine...) We wanted a party where our friends could come and have a blast & keep the Halloween magic alive, even for adults. Every year we have gotten more into the party... adding on to decorations and garb & party festivities. From the first of October (sometimes late Sept!) on our house looks somewhat like we are crazy... :P We go all out on the decorations & we are in a constant process of decorating. It's SO much fun! :)

To get you in the spirit.... here are some of the costumes we have tried in the past... ;) In this order... Ketchup & Mustard, Princess Peach & Mario, Jack & Jill-after they fell down the hill, & Cowboy & Indian.
