    Halloween was considered to be the most favorite holiday of the year by my daughters when they were little. They couldn't wait for the big day to arrive eagerly anticipating the candy haul that was in store for them. They planned their costumes for weeks. The girls put a lot of thought into them, making sure the details were just right! It was a lot of fun for them, and it was also a lot of fun for me. I sure do miss those days!
