This year we were the least prepared and had the most events to go to. This year Halloween extended into two weekends. This year we were too busy with work and the new house to give proper time and attention to our costumes. This year everything turned out just fine and we got creative at the last minute. This year we had a great Halloween experience.
My mother worked her hair magic and turned my hair-down-my-back into a short bob for my Grace Kelly persona.
Marcus got lucky and doned PJs to the party for his part as Jimmy Stewart from Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window.

We went to such a great party over at the Brimley's.
Don't they look fantastic?
I don't know why, but whenever I see pomegranates I think of Where The Wild Things Are.
Do you agree?
My family had a Halloween Dinner for my nieces birthday and I didn't want to do my Grace Kelly hair again, so last minute I had the idea of being Stephanie Tanner (from Full House). That show was the greatest, was it not?
I tried to convince Marcus to be Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), but everything he put on looked too normal, so he happily pulled out his Trachten (bought while he was living in Germany) and went as Captain von Trapp (Sound of Music)

My nephew wanted to be a "church guy" for Halloween! Haha he thought Marcus was that as well.
Perhaps the greatest costume in the history of Halloween was when my sister and her beau showed up as my PARENTS! Hahahah, I'm sure it's not nearly as funny since most of you don't know my parents, but the entire house was in tears when they walked in. My brother actually thought it WAS my mom. So, so good!
We then headed over to Lauren and Ted's house for a delicious second meal of stuffed pumpkin. I had never heard of it, but it sure was tasty (and beautiful). We were laughing the whole night, until we watched the scariest movie ever--When A Stranger Calls, then we weren't laughing anymore. YIKES!
I carved my pumpkin in tribute to our little stray porch kitties. Can't wait to light it up tonight!
Be Safe, Have Fun, and pray that the dead roach on our porch does NOT come back to life on this spooky Hallow's Eve!
