Tina, one of our twin daughters, is preparing for an early Halloween party.
When they were youngsters at home people began doing dangerous things to the candy handed out — razor blades and such. To counter that situation, Barb began throwing Halloween parties at home. It gave the kids a chance to decorate and invite friends. It was phenomenal.
However, when they became high school students she gave them the choice of dropping the parties. But they objected to that and began managing them on their own and inviting younger children in the neighborhood.
That began thirty years ago and the tradition continues on today
