Ghosts of Halloweens Past

In the spirit of exhaustion from staying up most of last night with our new dog, I am posting merely a gallery of past Halloween photos for your viewing pleasure. Since there were so many words in my last post I'll let these pictures do most of the talking here. 

Here they are in order from oldest to newest. Child numero uno was too tiny on her first Halloween for a real costume so these pictures begin when she is about 17 months old.

Enjoy! Lauren-this is for you, live by request.


"Deep in The Hundred Acre Wood..."


"What's New, Scooby Doo?"

"Baby #2 dresses up early!"

"The Pumpkin grew and now has its own patch!"


"Kim Possible gets ready in the hospital room!" 

"Rufus, the Naked Mole Rat!"

"Brand new, Baby #3 going home on Halloween!"


"She's a flower-NOT a Fairy!"
"Jack Sparrow, Flower and Hunny Pot"
"Does this costume look familiar?"
"Yo, ho, yo, ho, a pirate's life for me!"

"Rapunzel, let down your hair!"

"Annakin Skywalker, Rapunzel and Rufus Returns!"


"Pocahontas and Princess Aurora."
"Pocahontas gets her groove on!"
"Indiana Jones!" 


"Ready for candy!"
"Strawberry Shortcake."
"Scarlett from G.I. Joe."


"Candy Time!"
"Custard, Strawberry Shortcake's Cat."
"Ian Kinsler!"
"Agnes from Despicable Me. Unicorns, I love them!"


"50's Diner Waitress."
"Cookie Monster!"
"Wonder Woman!"
"Captain America joins in!"


Hope you had a fun Halloween. Our Grown-up Indiana Jones, Ranger Nelson Cruz, "Devilish Prison Escape (correct, she is not a person, she is an action) and American Girl Doll had a lot of fun. And enough candy to last until next year! I would love to see your photos. feel free to send them on.

Ok, now I feel guilty about making you do all this work because of your new dog. But since the twins had me up at 4:30 this morning, I can relate. Anyway, thank you, I love it!! I love how "the eldest" has a penchant for being badass heroes from back in the day. If I didn't know better, I'd think you were influencing her! Thank you for sharing. I will shoot some pics of my cuties over to you for your viewing pleasure. No pressure, but I do visit to check for updates several times a week and love seeing what you are up to. I am assuming there are some Thanksgiving themed hijinks in the works... ;)

I will have hijinks-fear not! I'm going to take acorns and use a tiny dremel bit to drill holes in the tops. Then I will gild them and thread them onto fine filament to tie around napkins.


Did you know Martha Stewart ACTUALLY did that in a magazine article???? Insanity!

The new dog is at the vet for "altering" tomorrow morning. Sorry, buddy! :)

I feel a little guilty about being so happy to get a full night's sleep tonight when he is at the vet, but I can't get better and take care of the fam. when I don't sleep. I think the dog pales in comparison to what you do everyday!

Loved the pics of your crew. They are so adorable-I want to squeeze them!

More Hijinks...
