Halloween is my favorite holiday. So Fun. I haven’t made Halloween quilts but I have made Day of the Dead quilts. Made a few simple costume for the kids.
We are the ‘book house’. We give out books for Halloween. I separate them into board, picture, chapter, teen, adult. We welcome all the kids whether they have costumes or not. You just don’t know kids circumstances so we never berate kids without costumes. The teens have some of the best costumes. The Buy nothing group donated 400 books this past month for our Little Free Library and Halloween.
While the trick or treating is going on we have a dinner party for 15-20 on the driveway. Very simple, soups and breads. We get entertained by the trick or treaters. I love Halloween. To see the kids faces light up is just pure joy!

Thank you all so much for sharing you Halloween memories.

What a fun episode! I love Halloween , but I’m not a fanatic. I just love seeing the kids in costumes. So fun to listen to your laughter and conversation. The only problem was I wanted to join in!
Please tell Billy I was ALSO traumatized by The Ring in high school. I went with friends to see it and had never felt so dark in all my life. I told my “best” friend how much I had hated it. Later, she invited me on a double date with couple of guys “to see a movie”. What movie? Oh yes, the Ring. She said that she knew I wouldn’t come if she had told me. I spent the whole moving looking at my shoes singing primary songs in my head. 🙈
Also, Kristin Duke posted some great thoughts about teens trick or treating on instagram to add to your discussion on what age is too old.
Jenny Hiett says
I look forward to every other Monday when your podcast is released!! I joined you when you began and have appreciated that you continued on even when things weren’t perfect. Like when a loud car drove by or Chelsi’s kids were loud. Those things made you real and normal people, just like me.
I loved hearing about all the costumes that Sherri has made over the years. Halloween is my favorite time of year because I get to make the costumes. This year there are no new costumes due to my schedule being super busy, so I decided to share some of the ones I have made over the years on my Facebook page Sewing with Jenny Lou.
Thanks for inviting us into your lives!
