I can’t believe Halloween has already come and gone! It’s all downhill from here as far as holidays go. 2010 will be here before we know it. Yikesabee! (Movie anyone?)

We dressed our little chickadee up as, well, a chickadee! She was happy as a clam wearing it and I think she looked hysterical and awesome.

 aDSC_4201 We took her trick-or-treating up and down our street and took our new neighbors treats and introduced ourselves. So far everyone seems really nice. So far.


We had an impromptu Halloween dinner party and managed to have quite the menagerie of animals. A butterfly, chicken, and two monkeys. I loved seeing these kiddos all dressed up.

aDSC_4218Speaking of kids dressed up, what the H is up with kids’ Halloween “costumes” these days? Half the kids that came wore absolutely NO COSTUME or the barest minimum of what could be considered a costume. I straight up called them out and asked them what they were supposed to be. They had no answer. No free candy if you don’t do the work! Put on a freaking costume! Beads and a ball cap do NOT a costume make. Neither does a Farve jersey. I also had quite a few kids with 2 bags “for their sick brother/sister”. Why didn’t I think of that scam when I was little? Pish posh. Oh well. There were some cute costumes though,and either way I LOVED having tick-or-treaters come to our house!! So fun! We totally ran out of candy though…next year we will have to really stock up!

Hope everyone had a great Halloween and scored some sweet candy!

We had two teenagers come about 1:30 in the afternoon and neither of them were dressed up! Needless to say they did not get any candy.
Very cute bunch of kids!

Summer make an adorable chickadee!

Summer is cute as always. We used an older version of that chicken costume for our boys for their first Halloweens. . . it is my favorite baby costume but I may be a bit biased.

People are poor, that's probably what's going on! I still say if you want candy you should do SOMETHING, even if it's cheap or free, just dress up crazy or something.

Summer is getting cuter and cuter. I want to pinch her.

She looks so cute in her little costume. I saw lots of packer boys dressed up trying to get treats too:) The wall ended up being brown I just painted over the writing. We need to have you guys over some time. Once I get the nursery done! I love the grey walls it looks really good.
