Guys, this Halloween marks the first time in TEN YEARS that I will have trick-or-treaters knocking at my door!  Between college, living out of the country, and living in an apartment complex in the city, providing candy for cute little trick-or-treaters was not a possibility. But, my time has finally come and I plan to make the most of it!

You know how all kids peg certain houses in their neighborhood that offer the best candy on Halloween? (If you didn’t know that, now you know.) I fully plan to be one of the houses the kids are talking about!  

The first key to being the house kids are talking about is having Halloween decorations outside of your house. It lets them know that you’re a fan of Halloween! I wanted to decorate my door cute, but simple, and my little boy wanted to help, so we cut out some cute black bats for our front door.

What's in my Trick-or-Treat Bag? Glow-in-the-dark-Oreos!
