Halloween!

I have always loved Halloween. When I was a kid we could take off ( by ourselves) at sunset and not return home until nine at night. We would have our pillow cases full of candy and homemade goodies from neighbors in our subdivision. My parents did not have to worry if the candy, popcorn balls and cookies were safe to eat. It was a fun time with not a worry or care.

When I had my own kids, I loved to make their costumes. Although, they will now tell you that too many times one was a Hobo or Witch!
              
Long, Long ago

Now, I have Grand Kiddos and their Mommies have to make the costumes and I love seeing the creative ideas they come up with! Since the grand kids were little, we always got together for dinner and then a night of Trick-or-Treating! Now as they get older, they want to be in their own neighborhoods with their own  friends. I think that is where they should be, having a great time.

 Now we are in a new chapter of our lives! As the Grand Kids get older  we will have to let go of the family parties and allow them to have fun with their friends as we did when we were their ages.


We Rock!
                                                                                 

Crazy Times!
 For now, I will dress my furry kids up and enjoy the season.

Chloe, she was not happy with me!

I hope to get better pictures this weekend when Bill is here to help me. Lets just say , it was quite interesting trying to hold the little critters and take the picture!    


Chloe trying to hide and Cecil in his Devil costume!
 I thought they looked so cute but I guess they did not share this view!

Cecil trying to get the hat off..he succeeded!
"Killing" his prey!
He played with this for about ten minutes!
 Cecil kept throwing the Devil costume all over the living room then took it into his pumpkin.

Done Deal, one satisfied Hunter!
 These two make me laugh. They are such a HOOT!  Hopefully, I can take more pictures this weekend and if they are really good I will take them to the costume contest at Pet Smart.

  5. Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays as well. I did the witch and hobo costumes too and lots of others--clowns, gruesome old ladies (Frank!) and pumpkin (Wendy). She couldn't sit in her desk in Kindergarten because she was too fat! and anything else I could come up with on short notice--I guess that's what I liked about Halloween--so much fun and I didn't have to do a lot of planning, shopping and preparing ahead of time like at Christmastime. I love the great photos you take. Cute costumes!
