a little halloween...

My sister, Kim, loves Halloween.  She is the Halloween spirit if there ever was one.  She cut a life size witch and cat out of plywood and painted it black.  It goes in the front yard with a light behind it and it is the coolest thing you've ever seen--even during the daytime which, in my opinion, is kinda *tricky* (hehe) with Halloween decor.

I mention this fun fact about my Halloween loving sister because a few years ago, I couldn't imagine taking that much time cutting something out with a hand saw for Halloween.

Thanksgiving? Yes. Christmas? Yes.  Halloween? Um.  No, thanks, I've got a bowl of candy.

But, then I had Dylan and got to dress him up like this:
 And, just like that, I was all about this night of spookiness / free-ticket to dress my child up in costumes.

So, since I am crazy in love with the fall season, I am already thinking of what Dylan could be for Halloween.  And, I'll just admit that I already had a little post on these adorable Halloween invitations planned and I wasn't even going to let myself post it until at least October (tomorrow!).  But, then I saw this picture and I lost all control and decided to jump in on the Halloween fun:

A mini ventriloquist dummy.  Are you kidding me?  And, look at this adorable owl costume from the same creative mama.  Don't you just love those chubby lil' legs?

So, with all of these adorable and hilarious costumes circling around in my head, I can't wait to figure out what Dylan's third Halloween identity will be.  I saw this gnome costume and laughed out loud, but I'm not sure Dylan would keep the beard on.  And, really, it's all about the beard.

Have a happy last day of September!



  1. We've had Caden's Halloween costume picked out for weeks... I never liked Halloween until I had my own house and had kids come to my door and then I had Caden and I'm ALL about it! Caden was a skunk his first year too! I loved my little stinker! :) This year he's going to be a Texas Ranger (the baseball kind) :) Love you!

  2. Hey Aunt Steph! So I have been reading your blog for the past few weeks and let's just say I got a little inspired. I started my own blog planning to chronicle the next four years of my life. I just wanted to let you know that I like reading your notes and looking at your pictures. XOXO
