Trick-Or-Treating? Here are Key Safety Tips For Our Adorable Ghouls & Princesses
I gotta admit. The gorgeous weather in East Texas this weekend is definitely putting me in the mood to watch spooky movies and eat way too many Reese's peanut butter pumpkins. (Cause honestly, they're candy perfection--amirite?)

I have a feeling that we're gonna see a whole bunch of trick or treaters this year--especially after 2020. That makes me happy for the most part. But of course, as always we want to make sure our kids stay safe.
