Halloween 2014 is finally here today!!!!
I would be lying if I told you I didn’t love Halloween from as far back as I can remember…
Ok, I just had to include the above photo blast from the past and wonder if you can find me in this picture above from Halloween 1980 something!!
But still I just can’t seem to ever get enough of Halloween and all that comes with it, including trick-or-treating and all the fun times even now in 2014.
That said I patiently for years waited to have kids in order to dress them up and go trick-or-treating with them (even after it was acceptable for a grown woman to love Halloween) – partly because yes I really do love it, but partly because also got a brand new excuse to get more free candy in our house.
But yet it didn’t stop me from dressing up before we had the kids for Halloween…Halloween 2005
And yes, I totally admit here that I am the mom that sneaks the kids’ candy when they aren’t looking.
However, that said since it is indeed Halloween, a Friday (seriously can’t get a better day of the week except maybe Saturday for trick or treating) and I will most likely be out most of the day between helping to run Emma’s Halloween in class party during the day itself, as well as trick or treating after school or just having fun with Kevin (he has the day off) and the girls, too.
So, I am warning you I will most likely not be responding on my blog today or the rest of the weekend, but just wanting to wish you a collective, Happy Halloween from all of us with a photo walk down Halloween memory lane from the past Halloween’s with Emma and Lily, plus I will also be re-sharing Emma’s Happy Halloween message from the other day (in case you missed it and seriously just too damn cute to me not to give her another shot at showcasing her message here!).
Happy Halloween 2009 (Emma’s First Halloween – aka Our Little Pumpkin)
Happy Halloween 2010 Emma’s Second Halloween (I was still pregnant with Lily who wasn’t born for few weeks) – A Bald Minnie Mouse
Happy Halloween 2011 – Emma’s Third Halloween and Lily First (even though she was just about a year old here).
Happy Halloween 2012 – Halloween that almost wasn’t with Hurricane Sandy Touching down two days before!
Happy Halloween 2013 – Last Year found Lily sick on Halloween and fingers crossed we are all healthy this year!!
What will the girls be this year for Halloween?
Here is a sneak peak with Emma from her school evening Halloween Party last Friday night (one hint…the girls are still Frozen Obsessed!!).
By the way, in case you were looking to make the fun kids Halloween themed dinner tonight and dessert, too..check out my recipes for Halloween Mummy Dogs for dinner, as well as Spooky Dirt Pudding for Dessert, as well!!
