As much as it makes me sad sometimes to see my kids get older, it is fun to see changes like them understanding holidays more and what they mean. They are really excited about Halloween and Christmas this year, and I plan on amping it up a little to match their excitement. We have nary a pumpkin at our house (this situation is being amended today), but we have already decorated for Christmas. Go figure. More to come on that soon...Thinking it would be fun to have some neighbors and their kids over for a little pre-Halloween party, I decided to try out some recipe ideas first.
