Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I think it stemmed from my childhood when Halloween trick or treat was in its prime.

Yes,  boys and girls it was just like the movie E.T.  We would dress up right after school grab our pillow cases and set off with our brothers, sisters and friends.  From about 4 pm till 9 or 10 pm. We treated till we dropped and yes some even tricked.

Halloween isn’t really that way anymore. There are so many do’s and don’ts, and I wouldn’t dare let my children out of my site with all the wackos and crazies these days.  

Not to mention our trick or treat times are only 2 to 3 hours long . The carefree days of being a 6 yr. old growing up in the 80’s is definitely past us. Now instead of squirt guns, and huge plastic cordless phones and ET on VHS. Kids carry cell phones that stream movies and YouTube, have iPods, and play shoot em up games on the PlayStation or Xbox.Sometimes I miss those simple moments of my childhood and an era past.

This party was just what my family needed to get in the spirit and come together doing fun things. We made a green box YouTube video for a Houseparty contest to win a special “green box”.

The whole family was involved; we colored, laughed and had a really fun time making this video. Which, I feel I better understand George Lucas and his begining shooting video for star wars in his garage.

George, there probably isn’t enough money in the world for the set of frustrations we faced that were unexpected for a 30 second video. I know now, if I didn’t before you are an artist that truly has a passion and love for his work.

We did win though! I thought my daughter was going to pass out when the FedEx driver pulled up on that Saturday. We had a huge Monster House party. Friends, family came ate, partied till about 10:30 pm. We, danced to everybody dance, had awesome party favors and I painted a back drop for the party. I had all but forgotten my passion for art and painting. It felt like a breath of fresh air, like I had not been actually living for the past few years.

I included pictures of my party for you to view, a houseparty team actually put this together for our party and for that we thank you. Venice says Houseparty is like Santa Clause!


My first house party as a Host was a PlayStation 3 event.  This started it all . is exactly what the names says , It is a company that sends its hosts , party packs full of free  products for you to try out with your friends and family members.

My middle daughter, Venice especially loves my parties and some of the contests I have entered on House party. She is obsessed with House party; it is her “claim to fame” in the first grade and our neighborhood.

We received our package via UPS and I waited for her to open it up. She was so excited. We received coasters, plastic cups that changed colors when your drink is poured in it. Body Glitter, which all the girls loved and bracelets.   The Everybody Dance PlayStation 3 game with discount coupons for the game and PlayStation move.

Friends and Family came, danced, glittered, and laughed.

Everybody dance was a huge hit with everyone , the kids loved it . I have even had parents , friends and family asking where to buy it , and if I still have coupons , because their children keep asking for it and telling them they want to go to my home and play.
