Halloween Approaches

Wordless Wednesday


We love Halloween at the pond. We don't go all out - really it is mostly about the costume and the pumpkins - but it is the kick-off of the holiday season. Diva used to know what she wanted to be for Halloween a year in advance. She got really creative this year - she wants to be a princess, not the Disney kind, the real kind. She picked out her fanciest party dress, a tiny rhinestone tiara and asked me to buy her some new shoes (real shoes, not dress-up). I call her the "Practical Princess" :0) Here are some of the cute costumes from our past:











Now for the Pumpkins! I have over a dozen of them at my house waiting to be carved, painted or otherwise decorated. Who would be willing join me and post their Halloween Pumpkin Pictures on October 30th? If it sounds like a popular idea, I'll put up Mr. Linky here at 4-frogs on the 29th - then I won't miss a single Jack-o-Lantern!!!!

With you on the pumpkin pics! We always go overboard & end up carving more pumpkins than I think we will. ;)

It was fun when they were small and I got to pick the costumes
:0) The little skunk is a family friend, but I did sew his sunk hat! It's the only pattern I know how to sew.

I will put up a pumpkin patch Mr. Linky on the 29th. And yes, I'll put reminders out there too :0)

Utterly adorable costumes. That cow!
I haven't sorted out my children's outfits yet. My son says he wants to be a horror Clone Trooper - just how does that work!
