the winner* of my first ever giveaway is.... bad day ben designs!! congrats:) bad day ben designs didn't share what they will be doing for halloween (maybe you'll come back and tell us? or maybe it's secret!), but we did get lot's of great stories to read. when i asked you to share i didin't realize how interesting it is to get a little peek into everyone's lives. it was so much fun, i'll have to do it again next month for thanksgiving!
for halloween, we usually have a little family party for my daughter's birthday. then we usually go trick or treating... in nyc you don't really trick or treat at people's houses though, you usually go to business's instead (some people like to sit on their stoops and hand out candy too though). so we walk up and down one of the main avenues and the kids go in all the stores to get candy (which is funny for me having grown up in the suburbs). they also have a little halloween parade in our neighborhood, for the kids to march down the street in their costumes. we usually don't make it very far before the kids are ready to fall asleep! we also have our annual halloween party on the weekend. we get together with friends and family (we have some coming from out of town this year and we'll have a full house!) i wish i could invite all my friends here too... but i promise to share some pictures!! happy halloween everyone!
* i used random.org to pick the winner, by the way.
