10 Years of Halloween

Seems weird that we've been celebrating that long.

A look back....

2009

Trick-or-treating in Overland Park, KS.



2008

At the trick-or-train in Golden, Colorado.

This was my all time favorite kid costume. (so I have tons of pics of this one)

Meltdown. The first of many.

Boo at the Denver Zoo.





Rock Creek Farm Pumpkin Patch in Boulder, Colorado.

Jackie.

Rocky Mountains in the back.



2007

Pa was in town this year!

Jack didn't understand and walked right into houses, sat down at the dinner table and reached for food.

Darth Vader, Yoda and Princess Leia. (our only year to coordinate)



Yep. Those are yarn buns.

Before Fright Fest at Elitch Gardens.



2006

Jack bundled up for trick-or-treating in Castle Rock, Colorado. 2 feet of snow on the ground!

Caroline and me. On our never ending quest to annoy Carter.

2/3 of our kids wore this costume.......as I did when I was a child.....along with my 5 siblings. This is Jack.

You can see a bitty Batman in there if you look closely.

Punkin lion.





2005

At the Fort Worth Boo at the Zoo.....I was pregnant with Jack here.



2004

Mega Halloween Costume Party at our house. Caroline was Dick Cheney (wearing my Dad's Halliburton coveralls) and Blake was George Bush. It was election year. I was Martha Stewart in her prison apron. This is one of my favorite pictures with Caroline.

Carter and Trysten.



2003

Imagine 3 year old Carter in the same lion costume Jack wore last year. Pictures are in the garage. No patience to find them.

2002

Imagine 2 year old Carter as Blue from Blue's Clues and Blake as Joe from Blue's Clues. It was awesome.

2001

1 year old Carter as the Crocodile Hunter.


Such fun to look through all of our years of Halloween.

Carved pumpkins last night. Roasting seeds today after I help out at Carter's party at school.

And, then Halloweekend is here!!!!!!

I love, love, love the flashback post! It looks like Lainey and Kamree were pink octopuses the same year! That was my favorite costume too!

Hope you have a fun Halloweekend!
