Hello everyone! How was your weekend, any nice wins to report? A few small wins over the last week for me of a Cameron Diaz DVD duo from a SimpleSaver competition on facebook; a children’s baking book from a twitter comp and a Lady Bug night light from a blog competition. I am going to squirrel the book away for my eldest daughter, so that’s another nice gift won and added to the present pile. Have you started comping for Christmas yet, or do you like to leave it until after the Halloween festivities are over? I know a lot of people can’t get excited about the Christmas period until November or later, but I feel the need to get ahead early and as organised as I can during October, before work, school and social activism take over completely!
Do you enjoy the Halloween season – maybe getting dressed up, going trick or treating or hosting a spooky party? As a family Halloween isn’t usually that important for us, but the girls do usually go to the Halloween disco at school and get all dressed up for the occasion. My eldest won’t be going this year unfortunately as she is having her tonsils out on Friday poor thing – hopefully we can have a few treats for her at home to make her not feel so left out. I am sure we will rent a few spooky movies and have some scary treats at home – nothing too blood-curdling though!
If you like to embrace the Halloween season and fancy getting your hand on £50 to spend on dressing up outfits, party supplies or food then why not enter our latest competition exclusive to The PrizeFinder members! Log into your account and leave me a comment below letting me know what you are up to over Halloween and you could be bagging yourself a £50 voucher to spend with Asda. You could get a couple of dressing up outfits for the little ones, stock up on spooky party essentials, or just spend it on the weekly shop – the choice is yours! One entry per person please and please remember that comments are moderated and as such won’t appear immediately. Entries close at 23:59 on Sunday 18th October 2015 and one lucky winner will be drawn at random shortly afterwards.

Hallowe'en BBQ with the neighbours
Just enjoying the costumes that the children wear as they knock on the door.
As I have no children, we'll just be staying in and watching spooky movies on the TV!
This is going to be our first Halloween in the countryside (a.k.a the middle of nowhere) and we're planning to have a harvest-themed party for our friends from the city. As there will be young kids present, we don't want to make it too spooky, so instead of ghosts and witches there will be pumpkins, apples, plums, bales of straw, golden Autumn leaves, owls, hedgehogs and badgers (not live ones of course!)
We normally go trick or treating round our neighbourhood, but this year our local bonfire display is on the same night so we will be going to watch that instead as it's always really good. Will still put some decorations up at home though and let the kids eat sweets so they get the best of both :)
Out and about trick 'n treating with our Grandaughter.
we will be dressing up for party's will the cubs and scouts
Alas, this year I'll be recovering from a knee operation the day before, so will be restricted to a game of bob apple and the odd scary film on the sofa.
Taking my partners daughter out for her first time trick or treating :)
I'll be giving a pumpkin pie a go and hoping I get to dress my little one up for his first ever Halloween!
Taking my grandsons out Trick or Treating, then a party for the grown-ups

I will be using Halloween as an excuse to do lots of baking and cake eating! Inspired by Bake Off I will be shopping in Asda for everything I need to make some great spooky cakes!
I am looking forward to spending the evening with my children,my youngest is just 3 and cant wait to dress up and go trick or treating with his older siblings, then all home for hot chocolate & candy in a dark room with our lit pumpkins,watching goosebumps
I'm doing a party for our kids and all our nieces and nephews, I'll be decorating the house from top-to-toe in Halloween style. But nothing beats last year's Halloween which we spent at Walt Disney World in Orlando - we spent 31st October in Magic Kingdom collecting candy and watching mickey and Minnie in the Halloween parade, I'd love to go back and keep entering comps in the hope that one day we can!
I will be watching the Strictly special and the World Cup final before heading out to a local party

To be honest, not planning anything special, but we're trying for a baby, and I know Halloween will be great fun
I am working on the day :(
But I am hosting a spooky halloween part in the evening that everyone is dressing up for.
There will be a gruesome (I am not a great cook lol) and a lot of alcohol.....I love Halloween so so much.
My daughter is working over Halloween so the we get the Grandkids! It will be like going back in time....spider cakes, buckets of handouts for the local kids and we don't need to make as much effort to look scary as all our wrinkles and grey hair and crooked teeth are coming along nicely...perhaps a new witches hat methinks! It's going to be awwwfully awesome and some help to kit out the kiddiwinks would be fffrightfully nice!
We will have a party at home for the kids and their friends, I dress up the downstairs and make spooky food for them, they love it, they also go out Trick or treating with their friends
I host a big spooky party every year so will be making jelly eyeballs and spider cake in the run up x x x
Dressing up my toddler nephew and generally boring everyone about how spookily cute he looks. Take lots of pics so I can continue to bore them about it in the days that follow. ha!
I'm going to walk around with my daughter and grandchildren who will be dressed up for Hallowe'en
