My guest, Sloan, is on a blog tour. Be sure to check out her blog to find out where she’s going next! ~DD

So today is my busy day. Pumpkin picking, haunted hayrides and haunted houses, oh my. Me and my daughter and three of her friends are spending the day and night doing spooky things. Then, if memory serves, something was said about burrito night and major chocolate milk shakes. Guess who will be cooking and doing that….LOL

Q: What is your favorite part of Halloween?

A: I’m not really sure I have a favorite part. I like dressing up, spooky places, all the
kids dressed up who come to my door for treats. Caramel apples, bonfires, hayrides.
There are just too many things to pick just one.

Do you have a favorite part of Halloween? Please share.

Remember, to enter to win the prize for today you must leave a comment.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

From the Heavens comes a hero who will take your breath away.

Reese Whittaker dreams of falling for a man who shares her love of archeology and ancient civilizations. But being attacked by a horde of demons and rescued by a Sumerian God—a well-armed, gorgeous Sumerian God—opens up a whole new world she never knew existed. And awakens a mysterious power within her that attracts all kinds of supernatural attention.

Dagan, son of the Air-God Enlil and a Time Walker, is sworn to protect the human race in general, and one young woman in particular—Reese. He’s not the only one mysteriously attracted to her powerful life force. Underworld leader Kur craves it for the untold power it will give him to strike a blow at the deities of Dilmun.

Dagan is forbidden by law from interacting with Reese, but from the moment he sees her, the fury—an intense sexual need for bonding—blinds him to all the rules. Should the pantheon discover he has fallen for a human, the punishment could mean suffering beyond imagining for him…and death for her.

Warning: Contains language, lots of action, Sumerian Gods, gorgeous men, tough, stubborn women and some creatures from the Underworld that make life hell.

    I love seeing all of the little kids dressed up because they’re so cute. I also enjoy caramel apples and Mary Jane Peanut Butter Kisses.

    I love the jack-o-lantern spectatular we have here in RI. Hundreds of cool carved pumpkins all lit up along the park. My 2 year old neice is going for the first time this year and I just know she is going to freak! LOL

    My favorite years were definitely when my kidlets were younger. Loved those visits to the pumpkin patch, the not-so-scary haunted house, the all important decisions about which costumes to buy and the pumpkin carve-offs.

    These days, my favorite part is decorating the house. I love the scents and colors of fall, and handing out candy on Halloween. So many young kids in our neighborhood, and their joy and smiles are pretty contagious.

    My favorite part of Halloween are the old t.v. specials both the cartoons and the family oriented movies. I like seeing all the little children dressed up in the Halloween costumes. But most importantly, I love the discounted price on Halloween candy the day after Halloween.

    My favorite part of Halloween was getting the kids dressed and getting together with friends and family to go trick or treating on many a street and ending up at Mom’s and Dad’s for hot chocolate.

    My favorite part of Halloween has always been the atmosphere…which some would call the fall weather. Lol.

    But I’ve always believed you can’t beat October for proper Halloween atmospherics. September couldn’t deliver it. November couldn’t, either. So I guess you could say that my favorite part of Halloween is and will always be October. :roll:

    Yep, we all seem to love this time of year. The smells definitely, and the changing colors. My husband always took the kids out trick or treating while I stayed home to answer the door and pass out candy. I made most of the costumes, except my son’s when he was Godzilla and Darth Mall. I couldn’t make those…LOL The weather today is awesome…cool but not wet. Haunted houses here we come.

    Thanks to all of you for stopping by. Don’t forget the final day is at my blog so please drop in and say hello.

    My favorite part of Halloween is seeing all the cute costumes the kids dress up in, and of course, any excuse to indulge my sweet tooth! :)

    mMy favorite part of Halloween is getting ready for the big day. The smells, sounds and sights. When my 7 were small it looked like we had our own team trick or treating. :) But they were all great memories. Also my Mom’s birthday, We’d always have a party prior to the trick or treating . Many happy memories. Now I get to wait and watch the grandkids come a calling. :) Love the blurb .

    Hi,

    Popping in late as I was at a Halloween party Saturday night.

    I usually miss all the partying on the net as I’m sleeping then…hehe!!!

    Anyways, I had great fun. I dressed up as a witch, with big plastic nose, green hair and everything and greeted the visitors who came to go round the spooky labyrinth that my friends built up in their backyard. I tried to persuade the kids to stay with me, I would give them plenty to eat…hehe!!! And I tried to get a kiss from the boys…haha!!! It was great fun and there were lots of screams!!

    So, now, this book looks like one that I HAVE to put on my wishlist!!! Yummy!!!

    Fedora, don’t get me started on the candy part…LOL I probably gain 10 pounds just looking at it.

    Carol, 7???? Oh my. I can’t imagine, but it must have been exhausting and fun….LOL

    Valerie, that labyrinth sounds awesome. We were complaining here because there was one haunted house that I could find and they said next year they might not even be doing it, so we will have none. Doing something myself might be our only option. I might want to get some pointers….LOL

    Hope all you ladies will get the book if you don’t win the prize today.

    Thanks for being on my tour.

    Sloan

    I love seeing all the trick or treaters. This year we had a lot of gorey ones. LOL. But; my most favorite part is all the horror movies and haunted shows on tv.

    Yes, I eat and eat and eat the candy. (Gaining 100 pounds in the process…LOL).

    They had Rocky Horror Picture Show on tv this year and Sweeney Todd. I have the original Mummy, Frankenstein, and Dracula (the black and white versions) on VHS. The ones I grew up with that scared the crap out of me. My daughter refuses to watch them…LOL
