Halloween 2019

Hello from November! Halloween was one week ago and if I don’t post photos of it now, the images and memories will get lost in the abyss of my slush photos and we’ll never see them again! Anyone in the Midwest can agree that it was a frigid one. At least it stayed dry for…

Halloween 2018

Happy Halloween from our family to yours! We just returned from a huge trick-or-treating power hour in our neighborhood. (Our neighborhood is literally the best place to trick or treat ever. There are so many overly decorated houses with fantastic treats and just tons of enthusiasm throughout!) We had only planned on taking Ares to…

Halloween 2016

  Hi, friends! Last Monday was Halloween and our first time trick-or-treating in our new neighborhood. And O M Goodness. What fun the girls had and what an impressive candy haul they brought home! (Thanks, girls!) Cece wanted a mermaid costume this year and Rosie was excited to be Elena of Avalor. The girls let me…

Halloween Candy Houses

  Happy almost-Halloween! Cece recently had a four-day weekend and we kept busy for most of it. However, on Monday we relaxed around the house and I managed to facilitate a small Halloween project for the girls.       During the Christmas season, making gingerbread houses is one of our favorite things to do. I figured we…

Back on Halloween…

Before the whole world boards the Christmas train, I need to at least post about Halloween (which was almost two weeks ago now!) I made the last minute decision to run the Monster Dash half marathon the morning of Halloween. (By last minute, my sis-in-law had offered her bib to me a week before the race and…

Halloween 2014

        Howdy! I hope your Halloween was filled with all good things. (As in, I mean I hope your treat bags were filled with Kit Kats and Reese’s. And not a bunch of candy corn.) This certainly wasn’t the warmest Halloween on record. However, we managed a few outdoor photos of the…

A Teeny Halloweeny Party

Cece and I have a shared love of holidays, decorating, chocolate, and getting our friends together. So I decided to host a small Halloween party yesterday morning. We squished our friends in our house like sardines in a can and made them have fun with us. (Literally squished. Five toddlers, five infants, and parents. We’ll get a…

Halloween 2013

           I’m slightly embarrassed to share that I wasn’t overly into Halloween this year.  I didn’t even carve any pumpkins (so I had to take photos of other people’s amazing pumpkins). BUT Cece and I did have some fun by having friends over during the day. We painted gourds and baked cupcakes. Cece…

Nice-looking fall photos of Cece and such via iPhone

      Post titles are not my strength, if you didn’t notice. Life has been enjoyable (for lack of a more descriptive word). Cece has loved wearing her Halloween costumes very much even when it’s not Halloween. And no snow stuck to the ground this entire month! As for new baby, he or she is…

Halloween 2012

We had decent fun last Halloween with having a C Monster around for the first time and all. But now that she’s one-and-a-half, oh how the level of cuteness has increased. During the day Cece and I carved one last pumpkin and we baked some delicious brownies with buttercream frosting made from scratch. However, baking is not one…
