Remembering Halloween

My husband, Alan really enjoys doing up Halloween. He hasn't been able to celebrate it the way he would like to, because our daughter has been hysterically afraid of many creatures in costumes. Even some of the cute ones, like Pooh or Mickey Mouse. She could tolerate them, but would totally avoid any house that had a scary person even remotely close to it. She has gotten much better this year, so Alan thought he could decorate up our golf cart & even get to dress up scary to drive her around the neighborhood for trick or treat. She wasn't too thrilled about his costume, but managed to get over it & loved the golf cart, since she was able to help decorate it. Unfortunately, it was much colder & windier than was tolerable, so we didn't get too far with the golf cart before having to head back for home to get the van. We stayed in our costumes though & enjoyed getting the looks & smiles from the other families. We go to a nearby neighborhood to do the trick or treating, so most people don't know us anyway, but we were totally unknown in costume. Brooke ran into a few kids from her class & bus route, but they didn't even pay any attention to us. LOL!!

So, here are a few shots of our 2009 Halloween, just in case you need a chuckle or two, or to even laugh out loud hysterically!

Well, I don't know how much I'll get to be on here as I've got a ton of stuff to do to get ready for a couple of craft shows I have for the next couple of weekends. And then, I get to have Thanksgiving at my house this year with a big family get together that I haven't ever gotten to do. I just hope I don't break under pressure! I'm only used to the small gatherings.

God bless & have a great day!

Ohh, now that is awesome! Love how you guys all dressed up for the fun spirit, and that hubby finally got his wishes to do so! The cart decorating is so fun... way to go!

I hope you don't crack under pressure... but I know what you mean about entertainling for a larger crowd! Now that my Dad has passed and we no longer have my parents "home" to go home to, Christmas Day Dinner is served at our house now. This will be our second year of hosting Christmas... it's not so bad!
