Family Halloween Traditions


This summer we moved away from our family and I decided it was time to really sit down and figure out what Halloween traditions I wanted to bring with us and what new ones I wanted to start!  There are SOO many great ideas out there!  There is no way I can do them all, but I figured I’d share the list with you!  

Traditions to do through October:
