Halloween is my favorite holiday. Hands down. I normally go all out with decorating. Inside and outside. Unfortunately this year I gave birth during the window of time where I start decorating. I did not get to go all out. I supposed I could have mustered up some energy to decorate from top to bottom, inside and out, but, well I didn’t. A couple weeks after giving birth, I did muster up some energy to decorate a little bit with Jackson.

Then came the big day. The most wonderful day of the year. Halloween! I always dress up too. I have so much fun getting all dressed up and carefully selecting that costume.

I will let our photos from this year do some talking.


Our daytime attire. Jackson went to school for half of the day. I picked him up early.


Alexander doing the monster mash!


Alexander was The Very Hungry (angry) Caterpillar


Jacky was Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates


My boys with their cousin Zoe. She was an Owl!


Rosie the Riveter with her boys! 🙂


Hey Jake!

It was very very very cold for Trick or Treating. There were also massively strong gusts of wind. So we had to bundle up for our Trick or Treating adventure. We also did not stay out as long as I would have liked. We were all ready to get back inside after about an hour. I hope next year is a little warmer. I would be happy to take my boys door to door until it got too dark out.


So many houses, so little time for Jake!

I hope everyone else had a spooky and frightful Halloween!
