Happy Halloween!

Which broom, which broom, witch broom?  Ahhhh…decisions…

One of my friends on FB tells the story of her favorite Halloween memory where she always looked forward to going to one house where the woman dressed up as a witch and had hot apple cider she served out of a couldren…how fun is that?

One of my favorite Halloween memories isn’t from my childhood – instead it’s from when Alex was little and she asked if she could wear my ‘antique’ dress for a costume.


My ‘antique’ dress was about 10 years old, thank you very much.  What a little shit. {I say with a chuckle}


Oh…and there’s the time I wasn’t feeling particularly crafty…so I dressed Sam in a dinosaur costume I’d found secondhand and put a tutu over it and a crown on her cute little head.


She wasn’t thrilled.  But God was she cute!  (And yes, notice that once again, Alex posed…I think she was born posing!)

And then there’s Miss Gabi…

My favorite costume of hers was when she dressed up like Hershey, our sweet little old chocolate lab (God rest his soul).  She even took him with her trick-or-treating in our neighborhood!


I think my favorite costume EVER may have been the year I dressed Sam up as Raggedy Ann…she was ADORABLE!  See…


Alas, the girls trick or treating years has passed.  Our rule is once you hit 7th grade – you’re too old.  Yes, our kids loved that rule.  {sarcasm}  Now Gabi gets to join us in handing out candy to all of our favorite little people!

So, what’s your favorite Halloween memory?
