This picture is of Sarah's first Halloween, and we dressed her as a little pumpkin. A baby's first Halloween is so much fun!
My son Joseph was born 15 months after Sarah, keeping with tradition, we dressed Joseph in the same Pumpkin costume, he was only just over a month old on his first Halloween. I still have our little pumpkin costume tucked away in hopes that one day I might take pictures of my Grand kids in the same costume.
This next picture was taken during my daughters first year of grade school, and well into her princess loving phase, little brother was dressed as a little dragon. So we had a princess and a little dragon who enjoyed going to their first school party.
We have always enjoyed pumpkin carving, and look forward to picking out our pumpkins and figuring out what face to carve every year, this was way back in 2001, hard to believe this was 10 years ago, my how time flies!
This was the year my daughter dressed up as a queen, and my son dressed up as a Knight, he was very excited to use his armor and sword, they both looked wonderful. I enjoy it when they choose coordinating costumes, we have had a few coordinated years that were really cute.
In the picture below Sarah had fun dressing up as Hermione from Harry potter, she looked so cute! Joseph dressed as a Pirate which has turned out to be one of his favorite things to dress as for Halloween, and since then he has had many different Pirate costumes.
Lastly, I had to include an Apple Bobbing picture, I think it's fun to have out apples to bob for on Halloween, for traditions sake. I however, am not fond of getting my face and hair drenched- Gary was a real sport and demonstrated apple bobbling for the kids- I may have to put out some apples to bob and see if any of the teenagers are game to try this year, we'll see? I love how Xena our lab is watching in the last photo, she must have been wondering what Dad was up to!
Here's how they turned out-
I look forward to a nice weekend watching Halloween Specials like - It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Hocus Pocus, Halloween Town trilogy, and I have Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster on the DVR to watch also- and enjoying lots of Popcorn and hot cider!
