Happy Halloween!

31 Oct

Happy Halloween!!!

I love Halloween, I really really do.  I think it stems from childhood when I could escape into a character and become whoever I wanted to be for the day.  Not to mention the endless amount of candy that comes along with it and the highs and lows of sugar rushes. 

Lets take a little walk down memory lane, shall we?

2007- Our first year in Arizona in our first house together

I’m not sure what Keith was for Halloween, but I think he was a giant pumpkin!

2008- In our second home we’ve had together during our second year in Arizona.

Once again, I have no clue what Keith was.  I think this is the last year we dressed up, I think I know why now…


I was a bunny!  I love costume with ears and face paint.  Their cheap and quick to throw on!


2009-  Our third year in Arizona, still in our second home

We accidently erased all our pictures on our camera and were left with only a couple shots of our pumpkins.  Keith’s is first, mine is second.  Clearly we know who carves better pumpkins!

2010-  Our fourth Halloween in Arizona together and in our third home

My pumpkin is the one with ears!  I love decorating our entry way for the kiddos!  I also love seeing the little kids costumes!

I had a CD playing outside with spooky Halloween music blaring!  It was awesome!



We decided to carve pumpkins tonight and I can’t wait to see what my pumpkin turns out like!  Every year I have so much fun creating a fun one!  I always have a vision in my mine and my pumpkin ends up totally different from what I planned out!  🙂

Looking back on the past four years I’ve realized the most I’ve dressed up has been putting on cat/bunny ears.  I’m thinking next year I need to go all out and really have a fabulous costume!  Or maybe I’ll skip the costume yet again and just dress up my little peanut who will be about 7-8 months!



  • Do you get a lot of kids stopping by where you live?
  • Did you carve a pumpkin this year?
  • What do you do with your leftover Halloween candy?
  • What do you most look forward to about Halloween?
