What was Seen Last Halloween

Can you believe that Halloween is less than a week away?

As I was looking through last year's photos, I came across this photo of Jonah in his gorilla costume from last year. I just LOVE this picture, especially since Jonah was going through his "I don't want my picture taken" phase... and he actually has a ghost of a smile in the picture (go ahead, click it... you know you want to!).


The past week or so I have been staying up late working on our Halloween costumes for this year. The boys' costumes are done, mine is nearly finished, and Honey Daddy's is still a work in progress. We are doing a "Toy Story" theme. My boys will be Woody and Buzz, I am going to be Jessie and Honey Daddy will be Zurg. It should be absolutely fabulous... if I get it done on time!

What are you going to be for Halloween?

  3. Buddy was a frog last year, but the costume was HUGE on him at the time, and the label said for size 2 - 4. So he was going to be a frog again this year....

    Well, the crotch is too tight, so that he can't walk with it on. I looked to see if I could alter it, but I don't think I can. So I goot figure something new out for him.

    Chuck is still in a cast, but may have a walking cast by Halloween... so she's going to go as a peg leg pirate, since she already has the limp!!

  9. He's so adorable!
    Halloween is not celebrated in a big way here, mostly by the American expatriates. It's just like another day this weekend.

  10. that is the cutest thing. I miss Halloween when my girls were little. My favorite photos almost always came from that day. If I were going to dress up I think I'd go as Kate Gosselin or Lady Gaga. But more likely, I'll just hang out in the sweats and hand out candy to the 300 plus trick or treaters we usually get!

  16. I can't wait to see the pictures! Your family themed costumes sound amazing. My husband is going as a skeleton groom (I hope this isn't a form of personal commentary for him). My 8-year old daughter is a gothic vampire, and my 4-year old is a sweet little monkey. I'll be donning my real vintage WWII red cross nurse uniform.

    Happy Halloween!
