Where Are Halloween Events?

I have a toddler and would like to know of Halloween events this week and Halloween night if there are any. We are in Seabrook right now but are moving to Dickinson so either of the places would be fine.Thanks.

1St Birthday Party B-day Cake Without Dairy or Wheat

Hello moms, my baby has his first birthday on June 25th and we want him to be able to celebrate with a b-day cake (mainly for pictures, not because most of it makes it in his mouth but rather on the floor!) but we need ideas for cake recipes that are dairy and wheat free. He is lactose intolerant and we are choosing to keep him off of wheat until he is 18 months old. He can eat oat, rice, and corn flour, but just no dairy or wheat. I'm thinking maybe some sort of carrot cake, because he loves carrots, without the cream cheese frosting? Any...

The problem lies in the fact that we have our family (cousins and all) Halloween camping weekend that same weekend. It is a super fun weekend with pumpkin rolling contest, trick-or-treating from camp site to camp site (we also decorate ours for the contest which takes at least a month to put everything together, with the help from all the family members), and many other activities that are set up around the camp grounds.

Prom Fundraising...Is This SOP?

I got an email from a mom (friend of mine) stating that her son (a senior) was trying to sell these "lottery" tickets (a deal every day for the Month of May, so 31 chances of winning from one ticket purchase). The cost is $10 per ticket and it is to reduce the cost of prom tickets from $200 each by subtracting what they sell from the price of the ticket(s). Is this normal? Standard Operating Procedure now for prom? (I'm not questioning the validity of the sale, just the fundraising part.) If you have a kid going to prom--did they do...
