October brings a whirl-wind of crisp cool air, leaves, and Halloween. Growing up, my family never really made a big deal over Halloween. Some years we trick-or-treated, some years not.

So you can imagine what a shock it was to buy a house in a neighborhood with Halloween Fever!

Yes, we live in one of those neighborhoods… Every town has one.

A spooktacular neighborhood where houses are decked out in ghoulish garb, children and adult alike are adorned in ghastily get-ups, and candy flows like milk and honey one night a year!

It just so happens that we bought a house on the main drag, so our road actually gets closed off for hundreds thousands of people to stroll down Halloween night.

Year after year we watch our neighbors out-do each other with magic shows, man-powered floats, and Hitchcock movies blasted on the sides of houses. A former art professor down the street, carves masses of the most amazing pumpkins you’ve ever seen and hangs them in trees! It’s a full-moon affair, you could say.

The candy has become an issue. Last year we gave out 1500 treats! No, that’s not a typo. Can you imagine buying enough treasures for 1500 little goblins?

We have to buy bigger items so we can give each child one, in order to keep count for the next year. It’s part of the package deal, living in this neighborhood. We’ll just consider it an association fee.

This Pumpkin Pie Milkshake recipe was a treat I served to our Halloween party guests several years back and it’s bit a seasonal favorite in my house ever since.

We tested multiple milkshakes that year, but the Pumpkin Pie Milkshake was the winner!

    Wow. I utterly adore the Halloween spirit in your neighborhood! I have no idea how you manage to cook/bake for 80 guests and hand out treats to 1200 AND get your own kids out the door for trick or treating. But I bet everyone appreciates it. Can't wait to see what you post next.
