The Switch Witch was introduced to me a few years ago by a mom-friend of mine.
I laughed when she said it because I thought there is NO WAY my kids would go for it, but lo and behold, they think it is the best thing ever.
Have you heard of her? You might want to consider having her stop by your house this Halloween.

When I was in elementary school, my favorite Halloween costume was a cat. Every year. Now that I am an adult I still have a strong feline proclivity - extra black eyeliner, cat ears, and a tail tied to my jeans. 1-2-3 meow!

Bat Treat Bags
How much fun are Jack o’ Lanterns? I love visiting the pumpkin patch, picking out just the right one and deciding what funny face it will become.
My little sister was the queen of picking the biggest and heaviest pumpkin in the patch and then lugging it back home. But God love her, she’s not the most graceful being and there were more than a few bumps and bruises along the way.
Halloween means candy, pumpkins and a lot of fun for preschool-aged kids.
Since a lot of the things commonly associated with the holiday -- ghosts, jack-o'-lanterns and spiders -- are simple geometric shapes, there are several craft projects easy enough for a preschooler to make.
Remember, Halloween can be fun, not frightful, so when choosing crafts, stick with the silly instead of the scary so that nobody gets upset!

With Halloween quickly approaching, everyone seems to be scrambling to find a great costume before the big day. Some people wear the same costume every year, while others try to spice things up a big by wearing something new to each individual party.
You have the party favors, the healthy snacks, the not-so healthy snacks, and all the kids have great costumes.
But how do you serve up a great Halloween Punch for the little ones that is special enough for the occasion, and isn’t filled with sugar?
2 liters of Sprite Zero
2 cups of No-Sugar-Added Apple Juice
1 cup of Light Pomegranate Juice
