I must be a horrible parent.  I do not want to do anything for Halloween.  It's expensive to buy all three kids customes, it's expensive to take all three (including my husband and myself) to a local cornmaze or haunted house.  For us to all five go, it's over $40-just seems like such a waste of money to me.  I cannot wrap my head around making the cost seem worth it.  I don't even consider myself cheap.  I mean, I don't skimp on what type of shoes I buy them, or stylish name brand clothing, I get them what other kids are wearing and we do go on family vacations to theme parks, beaches & normal things-it's just these holidays like Halloween, Valentines Day, St. Patricks Day & Easter I do not want to spend a crap ton of money on candy and just things in general that I'll 1. throw away, or 2. will just fall a part.  I guess I should try to concentrate on the memories being formed by the event?  I don't know, I have struggled with trying to find a common place my entire adult parenting life when it comes to those things.  And it's not like they've never experienced these things, they have-I've taken them trick-o-treating before & bought them crazy customes that ran $20 each.....but in the end, they don't sit around and talk about the FUN TIME they had at "this place" or "that place" they just talk about how much CANDY they got...well I can BUY them candy, lol!!!

Help!
