I have to admit, I love Halloween! I become a big kid all over again. Anyone want to share any traditions or know of any interesting websites...etc. they'd like to share? I've been looking at a few pumpkin carving templates on the internet that I'd like to carve & have come across some useful websites for this and decorating your house.

This year I am putting a graveyard up on my front lawn. I will take pictures if all goes according to plan. Speaking of which, maybe we can share some of our kids Halloween costumes (pictures or explaining...) or even our own costumes!...

Brennan is just adorable!!! We like Halloween here as well. Only one kiddo has decided on a costume for sure and that is Zack. He wants to be a werewolf. I should ahve costumes for the 2 youngest from last year which is nice and Lys is talking about being a mummy. This will be our first year trick or treating in this neighborhood so we are looking forward to it.

This is a pic of him and I. Notice he is TALLER than me now.

And at the dance, the boys idea of dancing. laugh

Patrick had a great time at the dance and was actually out on the dance floor and even danced slow dances with 5 different girls.

I had a blast chatting with the other moms there.

I like halloween myself, it's always fun, always so many costume choices!!!

If I go trick-or-treating with my friends at all this year, I'll be dressed as a bowler, in my bowling shirt, because I have a very important match that day laugh ...maybe I can use the bowling bag (without the bowling ball) to hold candy or something! thumbup

It was a lil warm in the gym. Most of the guys did not "dress" up much. But they all still had fun.

Thank for the hair comment Lynne. I actually curled it a little which only took a few minutes with all the hair I got cut off. laugh

Oh it was so funny Lynne. There was one girl that was making sure Patrick danced. She kept setting him up with girls to dance with. She however, never danced with anyone. Duh

WOO HOO!!!! I, too, LOVE Halloween. I decided to carve a pumpkin this year. I looked at patterns, thought about creating my own, but then decided not to be overly ambitious. So I picked up one of those SpookMaster carving tool kits, got a nice pumpkin and yesterday, I carved it up. I think it came out pretty darned good for my first non traditional carving attempt. smile

It's wonderful to see these pictures

We've been getting ready for the trick-or-treaters, too. [Linked Image]

We've hung a festive wreath . . .

and took them to a get together today,

Thank you, Triss, they were a big hit with the gang. laugh

You're right, the heads are marshmallows
and the "hair" is shredded coconut that I dyed with food coloring.
I used half of an Oreo to make the hat brims,
a bite-sized peanut butter cup and a chocolate kiss for the peak.
The green hatband is icing,
and everything is "glued' together with more icing.
