Do you celebrate it? Are YOU dressing up this year? What are your kids dressing up as? Do you get lots of trick or treaters? Do you hand out candy, or healthier things like pretzels? Do you guys have orchards that you go to? Do you take the kids trick or treating or does your SO?

Halloween is a big thing around here. I want to dress up, but I'm not sure as what. I definitely wanna paint my baby bump. I think the kids will most likely dress up as a cat for the eldest, and most likely either Woody or Buzz from Toy Story for the youngest.

We just moved to a new area... so I'm not sure how many trick-or-treaters to anticipate... I usually do like the fun-sized bag of pretzels and one fun-sized candy per kid... I'm looking for an orchard, but there's not many out here, sadly.

If you want to find an orchard, I find that Where to Find Pick-Your-Own Fruit and Vegetable Farms / Orchards for Local, Fresh Fruit, Vegetables and Pumpkins, Along With Canning, Freezing & Preserving Instructions! is a good place to look, I found a couple of good places in my old area from there.

We take the kids out to go trick or treating. We have a few cool blocks around us that close off and cater to the kids for the rest of the day. The only one that goes all out in full costume is the little guy. This year he wants to be either Iron Man or War Machine. I usually just put on some sort of cat ears or devils horns and call it a day.

We take the kids out each year. I can't remember the last time I dressed up. We give out candy, but only if someone is home. We don't get a ton of TorTers thought. It used to be against the city ordnance to trick or treat in my town. Imagine that?! People had to drive 10 miles to the next town to trick or treat.

Cat ears are what I did for a looooong time. Quick, simple, and effective. What is War Machine, though...?

Rachel - who in the world does a city ordnance to not trick or treat?? That's awful. I loved trick or treating when I was little.

I wanna paint the baby bump... but I don't know what to paint it! I thought of a pumpkin, but that's very cliche. Maybe I'll tap into my husband's gamer influence, and paint my belly to look like one of those weird gaming dice or something.

Do you guys have animals, and if so, do you dress them up too? I'm seriously considering dressing the cat up this year.

War Machine is Iron Man's buddy, he was in the last movie.

Wow. I way too much! Ahh! Okay! I'm not much into superheroes... I think War Machine and Iron Man qualify as superheroes... my husband and step son love them though.
