Our trick or treaters.
Halloween was a blast! It was the wildest Halloween week I can remember for our family – we had events just about every day and night for a solid week. I’ll share a few snapshots of our fun.
This is what it looks like trick or treating in our town. Parents gather their kids and our local shops turn into candy stops for munchkins. It’s a madhouse and quite the sugarfest.
Peter was on a mission and went into “fast walker” mode. So most of my pictures were from behind. I didn’t mind it so much because strangely I like capes. He seemed very mysterious but also looked cute with Pip tagging along. She’s a Daddy’s girl.
As he walked, our little two would huddle under his cape like ducklings. Do you see Wonder Woman’s legs?
Friday night, we went to a grown-up costume party with friends. He was a hot Navy captain, and I was a military-ish girl. We assembled our costumes independent of each other, and I was secretly hoping my stripes would outrank his. Nope. He really liked that. He’s more type A than me.
Hanging out with friends – Lisa Marie on the left, Tommy in the middle and Kelly on the right. Tommy and Lisa Marie are both great photographers – Tommy’s the genius who shot my about page photo. No that’s not his real hair and yes that’s an upside down crow hanging off his jacket. ; ) There were literally hundreds of characters there. It was a crazy night!!!
Earlier in the week, our neighborhood hosted a pumpkin festival.
Hayrides, pumpkin carving, face painting. Friend time. Good stuff.
Oops, almost left our little hitchhiker…
What a week! I need at least a day to recover. Our kids have sugar hangovers today and I’m certain all parents across America are wiped. How was your holiday?
