Happy Halloween!

(Dear Email Subscribers:  I am SO sorry you are receiving a blog about Halloween 2015 in the summer!  I swear, I tried FOREVER to figure out how to turn off email notifications, and I just couldn’t get it figured out.  I HAVE to write this Halloween blog though, because I use this blog to document the major events, and I have to delete all these Halloween pics off my phone so I can take beach pictures.  Ha!  Nothing like phone storage issues to make me write a blog 7 months later…LOVE y’all!  And Happy Halloween!  BOO.)

Happy Halloween!!

So…yeah.  I’m writing this post in May.  I can’t really remember stuff that happened yesterday, but I’m going to try my best!

What I definitely remember is…Halloween was the best!

It really was!!

We carved our pumpkin a couple days before, we trick-or-treated at our neighbor’s house a day early, we visited Washington Farms with family the day of Halloween, and trick-or-treated for real that night.

It was all so great!

(Especially because the year before was when we were all terribly ill — so this was WAY, WAY better than that!)

Here’s how it looked:

First up — pumpkin carving at home!  Apparently, quite the hysterical experience.

Next up – Trick-or-Treating at our next door neighbors’ house a few days before the big day, since we would all be out of town on the actual day!  Our neighbors are the best!

Now Tom put on his actual costume, but Alice just put on one of her dress up dresses and paired it with winter boots!  Ha!

And in the last picture, I asked Tom to “Roar” at me, and they both did.  I love a roaring Rapunzel, don’t you?

Halloween morning:  We woke up and headed to Washington Farms.  Rachel said it would be fun.  It was an overcast and pretty chilly day, so it wasn’t that crowded.  You know what it was?

The BEST DAY EVER!!!

No, it really was.  We did everything and everything was awesome.  We had a blast!!

And after ALL of that — we went Trick-or-Treating!

Now, I was scared that Alice — who had told me she wanted to be Fawn, Tinkerbell’s animal fairy friend — would not actually wear the costume.

She was given a couple opportunities to wear it ahead of the big day, and she always declined.

So I brought along one of her other dress-up dresses just in case.

She told me the entire day that she would NOT be Fawn.

And then when it was time to get dressed, she said she wanted to be Fawn.

So…okay then!

I had a super ferocious T-Rex and a sweet Fawn.

It was truly the best of days, and I’m so thankful we were able to spend it with family and friends!

Only five more months until we get to do it again!! 😉

Happy Halloween, y’all!
