I love Halloween!  It’s such a fun holiday, completely pointless and full of candy.  Adults get to have just as much fun as the kids since there is nothing to “believe” in and no age limit on dressing up.

This year, Sam’s Club wants to help you with your Halloween celebrating.

Sam’s has a website dedicated to all your Fall entertaining needs.  Everything from Oktoberfest to Halloween, and stuff in between.

Halloween Decorations

Omgosh, look at these adorable ceramic candy bowls!  I want need the pumpkin.  So cute!  Sam’s has great deals on filling the bowls with candy, too as well as other spooky decorations and costumes.

Halloween Food Ideas

The Fall Harvest website has super spooky Halloween food recipes, too.  Check out these little ghostly pizza’s made with English muffins and mozzarella cut out like ghosts?  Isn’t that clever?  I’m totally making these for my boys.

And check out these Jiggly Jack O’Lanterns, too.  I mean, what other holiday has such creative and fun food options?  These are made with oranges and Jello.  I wish I was so creative to think of this stuff on my own.  But I’m not, so I’m happy that Sam’s Club has a holiday website to tell me how to do these fun things.

All my boys love Halloween, but Anthony LOVES Halloween.  He’s a big prankster and he just loves all the spooky decorations and opportunities to “scare” people.  I’m going to be in trouble with this one!

Creative Halloween Costumes

Halloween would not be Halloween without costumes.  And I really miss the days when people made their own costumes with old junk out of their closets.  Today every child is wearing some commercialized piece of polyester costume that they buy in the store.  And these are so expensive!  It’s a lot more fun, and usually cheaper to make your own costumes.  Too bad my boys didn’t get the memo…they want to be Toad, Yoshi and Darth Maul, all because a catalog came in the mail and now their hearts are set.  *sigh*

But a few short years ago, before they developed their own opinion, we made their costumes. And it was my favorite Halloween with the boys I’ve ever had!

The Nathan and Gabriel were home made ghosts (white clothes and lots of tulle) and Anthony was a robot.  I even wrote about the process for making the robot costume.  It was such a fun Halloween and we got so many compliments on their creative costumes.  I was a proud momma.

Costume Contest!

Sam’s Club want’s to celebrate FUN and CREATIVE costumes by having a Costume Contest and you can win a Wii!

Dig out a picture of your favorite, most fun and most creative costume.  It can be one you, your child, or your spouse, past or present costumes.

On October 20th, I will choose my THREE favorite submissions to send on to Sam’s Club (finalists).  All of the Sam’s Club Community Bloggers are hosting the contest on their sites.  Each of us (10 bloggers) will send in our three favorites. Sam’s Club will then choose ONE Grand Prize winner from the blogger submissions to receive a very cool Wii Prize Bundle (including Wii System, Wii Fit Plus, Balance Board and Controller) Valued at $294.81.

THEN, you MUST leave a comment telling me which picture is yours so I can contact you if you are chosen as a finalist! If you don’t leave a comment, I can’t contact you and you will be disqualified.  I don’t want you to put your email on the picture submission because then it will be public…unless you don’t care about those things.
