Halloween is big at our house and the costume-wearing usually hangs over into the rest of the autumn season (oh, who am I kidding—my kids wear costumes throughout the year!). My boys love dressing up as ninja warriors, swinging and climbing on the playground; they don capes and masks while wielding swords and they're always game for a silly mask or wig. For me? I love pumpkin pie, seasonal beers and cooler temps that require fun boots and chunky sweaters.
