Halloween Fun with the Family

Who's up for some Halloween fun with the family? Get in the "spirit" - but forget the scary stuff. No, this post isn't about writing. While Halloween isn't my favorite holiday, I do love the creative aspect of it. Some people take the holiday waaaay too seriously, hanging dummies with decapitated heads, holding knives, dead bodies in coffins, etc. IS THAT FUN? No!! Who needs realism in that way? NOT ME.
