Through the years:


Halloween is not my favorite holiday. I have some misgiving about it, and I don't care for the constant begging for candy that comes in the days following it.

But, we had so much fun last night. Singer Girl and her dad came over and trick-or-treated with us and the girls had a great time. They were running from house to house. (I loved that the time change had not happened yet and it was still light!)

I have to admit that I do love to hand out candy. I love that everyone is out on the streets and the neighbors come over. Punkin and SnugBug would race to the front door to give out candy. I hadn't planned it this way, but I had gotten 2 types of candy, and Punkin put them in separate baskets. So, they worked it out where they were each in charge of giving out candy from one of the baskets. Note to self: do this again!

WeaverDad thought our little Ariel looked a lot like a character from a movie called Fifth Element. I've never seen it, but here is the proof:

Spooky, isn't it?

We're not big on halloween either. they dress up and all, but we don't do the full blown house to house trick or treat thing.

LOL! to the last picture...I've seen bits and pieces of it, but that's about it.

I enjoy handing out candy too :) It is fun to see everyone in our neighborhood having a great time.

Your kids are so cute-the last picture is hilarious-she does look just like the actress!

Ha ha - Punkin is getting into character...I bet she's going to be doing some acting of her own one day. Great pictures. I like Halloween to a degree, especially seeing how kids get so excited about it. But the things for sale at stores were too much this year. The scary gruesome stuff was out on display everywhere we went and it couldn't be avoided.

I did see the movie, but it was a long, long time ago.

Cute costumes.

We loved that it was still light out too!

Love looking at the costumes over the years!

Very cute! That was fun to see you kids in their costumes through the years. Derek was Mr Incredible one year too.

Halloween is not a favorite of mine either. My husband LOVES answering the door and handing out the candy and teasing the kids. I'm glad because it frees me of having to do it :o) I do enjoy the tiny tots all dressed up and rather confused about it all!!!
