Excerpts from the Podcast with Jennifer

Why Jennifer and Her Family Love Celebrating Halloween

"I grew up with parents who loved Halloween and every year we had a party, we had a haunted house, we did homemade costumes. And it just became a delightful thing to look forward to every year.

And as a parent I decided I was going to go the same route and so I decorate my whole house for Halloween, our kids made homemade costumes and we made fantastic memories for my kids. One of the traditions we observe every Halloween night is ... "


On Decorating for Halloween

"My biggest thing is that it just doesn't have to be expensive. We are all busy, oh my goodness, we are all busy. But if you can take the time to do a little decorating and maybe throw a party, to me it's what makes life wonderful.

It's just taking the time to enjoy the holiday and you don't have to go all out like me with ten boxes of Halloween decorations. My husband rolls his eyes as I bring each box down. But take a moment to enjoy the holidays and make memories. It's just great. You can conjure up your own childhood memories and roll them into new ones with your kids and grandkids."
