Spooktacular Giveaway Hop :)

Welcome to my stop on the Spooktacular Giveaway Hop! :)  I hope you are having fun visiting all of these amazing blogs (and hopefully winning some prizes along the way!).  

At this stop, I must ask... who doesn't LOVE Halloween?!  It's a favorite holiday at our home :)

Our daughter LOVES zombies.  

My other half likes his vampires... 

...and I'm more of a witch fan.  


But regardless of our favorite "spook" of the season, we love Halloween because it's a great time for our family to participate in fun activities.  As a matter of fact, this weekend will be our annual pilgrimage to the pumpkin patch, where we'll enjoy a hayride, warm apple cider and picking out the lucky pumpkins that will grace our front porch for the holiday.  Do any of you have an annual Halloween/fall activity that you look forward to every year?  Do you have any exciting costumes planned for trick or treating?




For the hop, I'm giving away a small box of cozy mysteries (all of which have been released or are being released in the last few months), and a $5 Amazon gift card.  All you have to do is enter the rafflecopter below for your chance to win, and be sure to follow the linky list at the bottom of the post for your chance to win even more awesome prizes from more amazing bloggers!  Thanks for stopping by, and everyone have a very Happy Halloween! :)

I don't dress up for Halloween, but I love seeing what others come up with for costumes.

I don't wear a costume for Halloween but I love passing out goodies to all the kids who dress up in costumes!

I just like all the decorations, especially pumpkins. I don't dress up, but enjoy the kids costumes, especially the little ones.

Carol N Wong said...

When I was a kid, I loved dressing up as a witch. I wore a wig of red hair and rode a broom. Good memories!

Sara said...

I do not have any halloween traditions in this household nor do I have any plans for halloween this year.

Rachel said...

This year we have a Beauty and the Beast theme. I'm going as provincial Belle, husband is going as Lumiere, and our 2-year-old son is going as Cogsworth. I can't wait!

Danie Romrell said...

My favorite thing to do this time of year is drive through the mountains to see all the colorful trees.

Berkeley Hapa said...

I like watching pumpkin-carving contests, and making my vegan gluten-free pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!

Karen B said...

No costume but I do have a pair of orange and black socks with pumpkins on them that I wear while handing out candy!

There's nothing big or special planned for Halloween. Each year I go to my niece's to help dress her two toddlers in costumes, then hand out candy to trick or treaters :)

kiki w said...

We love dressing up for Holloween.

melissa crisp said...

I have no clue what my sons going to be this year so no to the costumes. But after trick or treating we read a halloween book then a movie.

Anne said...

In my area, many kids do not trick or treat and I don't have kids so I don't really have any traditions. Even though I've had about 10 trick or treaters in the last 15 years, I always have candy just in case.

Heidi Robbins said...

My daughter is super excited to dress up as Luigi from Mario Bros :)

hhkaufman78 said...

I love taking the kids to the pumpkin farm close to our house!

morwesong said...

I always love this time of year - especially Halloween because I love all things spooky and because my birthday is three days later. :-) I don't have any specific traditions, but I am going to be a bit silly this year with my costume for work. I am going to get lots those strips of paint samples from Lowes, and I am going to be 'fifty shades of grey.' :-)

Elle said...

Well, I don't love Halloween. Yea I'm weird. I do love the season...just not the holiday. No kids out here anymore, and I really don't need any candy or sweets. Too fat already.

holdenj said...

One of the things I love to make for fall is hot apple cider. Not just for Halloween of course, but in our part of the world, it's pretty cold most years and is perfect for both the adults and kids!

Cheryl R said...

Our event each year is a party a friend's house, she decorates accordingly and is super great about what she serves, its all creepy! I do not have a costume planned for this year. I have previously dressed as a little girl ( at age 24) and wore pig tails, and flannel jammies.

amy bowens said...

No special costume this year. When I was younger I dresses as Mariah Carey.

Lori Franklin Hopkins said...

I really enjoy going to the haunted corn mazes, but I love EVERYTHING about Hallowe'en!

SavingsInSeconds said...

My son wants to be Luigi from the Mario Bros. It has a blow-up belly which will be funny on a 5 year old!

Loretta Sullivan said...

My first choice is to hand out the candy on Halloween but many years I seem to be the adult that gets to take the little ones trick or treating. At least I get some exercise!

Meg C. said...

Dressing up in costume was always one of my favorite things about Halloween. You got to be someone else for a few hours. Unfortunately I don't really dress up anymore. Though it should be interesting to see what the kids that live around me will come up with this year.

It's Me De said...

We love going to the pumpkin patch

My daughter's birthday is on Halloween, and at 8, she still believes everyone is handing out candy to celebrate her. I love that!!!

Judy said...

I do not dress any more, love to give the candy out. I love seeing the little ones in their cute costumes and smiling as you give them their treats!!!

Kortney Lah said...

I do not, aside from carving pumpkins! No costumes, as I do not trick or treat! <3

Holly Letson said...

Do any of you have an annual Halloween/fall activity that you look forward to every year?
I like to dress up in costume. Trying to convince my fiance' to do so as well.

Do you have any exciting costumes planned for trick or treating?
Not really sure what I want to be this year.

Laura Thomas said...

I'm looking forward to carving pumpkins again this year. Got some great faces for this year. Plus I love the seeds. Going to bake a bunch of them.

Ally Swanson said...

I don't usually dress up for Halloween unless I'm going to a costume Halloween party. However, I do look forward to going to the pumpkin patch and decorating pumpkins each year.

Fear Street said...

Ashley Rogers said...

We started to go to this haunted trail every year as a work group and let me just tell you it is hilarious to watch them get the crap scared out of them. We also do a small get together where we have a bonfire and roast marshmellows etc. I am planning on going as a purge member this year (:

Amanda D said...

I am looking forward to trick or treating with my children. They will be Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy this year. If the weather is too cold and rainy, we stay in and play Halloween themed games and snack on candy corn and peanuts.

Linda Kish said...

We don't have any Halloween or fall plans. I'm retired but the others work. As far as Halloween goes, I don't dress up, I just hand out the candy.

Cori Westphal said...

My daughter is going as a zombie, all homemade! And my son is going as a hunter, all camo he already has. It's a frugal Halloween at our house this year!

Anastasia Falling said...

My favorite Fall activity is watching the rain! I love the rainy weather this time of year :) I also love to get outside and take pictures of the changing leaves :)

Elizabeth said...

Going to the pumpkin patch always sounds like such a fun fall activity! I've actually never done that. We don't particularly have any Halloween traditions, although we've had some fun parties before.

Jenn Christensen said...

No annual plans or costumes but we are going to a place called Blackwater Falls for our 5 year anniversary this friday. So I cant wait! Definitely better than candy and costumes! =D thanks for the giveaway

vanessa vasquez said...

We always watch our old scary movies, and of course A Nightmare Before Christmas!!!! I still don't know what i am going to dress up as ._.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Katie Watkins said...

I look forward to carving pumpkins because I love to roast the seeds!

forsan said...

There is a street parade at night where people show off their costumes. I have no idea why they don't go trick or treat instead.

Natasha D said...

We always carve pumpkins!
Thanks for the chance to win!

Marnie Ward said...

The most exciting activity we do each year before Halloween is carving carving pumpkins with the kids.. It is always very exciting when the pumpkins are done and we put al light in them. The kids are so proud of their creations and so are their parents.. My husband goes treating with the kids and I stay home to give out candy. I love seeing all the children in their costumes and their bright eyes when you give them candy. I remember trick-or-tricking is it was one of the funniest things I ever did.

sdlashbrook said...

We love decorating the house every year. I don't have any costume planned this year though. Thanks for the giveaway.

Misha said...

We always watch The Nightmare Before Christmas while eating fast food (a treat in itself around here!) after we get back from trick-or-treating, every year without fail, it's my favorite part. :) Thank you for the chance to win and HappyHalloween!

Courtney Ha said...

I am going to a neighborhood block party!

Dorothy Teel said...

When my boys were little we would do the trick or treating and I loved the costumes, now they are married with kids of their own and I enjoy having the granddaughter tell me about what they have done and the candy they got. I do buy candy and sit around watch movies and eat it..lol

Naomi Jacobs said...

I love fall and Halloween, it's my favorite time of the year.

Robyn Donnelly said...

Our costumes would be a grim reaper or a siren. We have fun dressing up. Our tradition is watching movies centered around horror each year.

lissa crane said...

We are also a huge Halloween family! Our fondest Halloween tradition in after trick or treating, my four kiddos dump there candy into piles and sort through, trading with each other.

SiNn said...

Every year me and my better half pick out 31 horror films to watch and we sit and watch them one a day while we spend time with each other we also like to scare the kids who come up for candy well if they r above the age of 8

ty for the chance!

Erika said...
