Jennifer Reed and her son Cooper pose near the Halloween decorations at their home at 2000 Petersen Drive Northwest. The Reeds enjoy decorating for Halloween every year, Jennifer said. "It's a family thing," she said. "We've done it for about 18 years, and every year, it grows." Jennifer has a soft spot in her heart for Halloween. "I love seeing everybody happy," she said. "It's a good way to have some fun. It's fun for the kids." Rick Reed, the father of the family, also enjoys the fall holiday. "It's a blast," he said. "The weather is nicer than it is decorating for Christmas, so you can really enjoy it."
