Scenes from Halloween

Several snapshots taken since Friday:

"Our house is so Halloweeny, Mum!"

My gingerbread skeletons turned out great, don't you think?

Before you can begin to carve seven pumpkins, you need to scoop out their guts!

Oooh, look what's in there... yuck!

Dylan bears an uncanny resemblance to his jack o'lantern

And so does Sawyer!

"Pumpkin moonshine..."

Trick or treating at the mall

"Is that really you, Dad?"

The boys with their favourite princess, Kristina, at Starbucks

On the front steps, ready to hit the streets! Sooo excited...

Little Red Riding Hood, a dinosaur, and a pirate, at the most festive house in the neighbourhood

Sawyer did some dancing with his glowsticks at the local firehall, which held a bonfire and costume contest, and gave out free hot dogs and hot chocolate to everyone! {this sooo reminded me of my childhood, as we used to go every year on Halloween night...}

Home again, relaxing by the fire and looking through our loot!

One very happy little boy. "I am sitting in a field of candy!" he told us.

Hope your Halloween was just as exciting as ours was, but perhaps a little less exhausting ;) I'm beat!


  1. I think Dylan looks so much like you! Everyone looks adorable, and I bet Halloween is so fun when you have little kids. As for me, I stayed in and watched sports this year ;)

  2. Gingerbread skeltons = Mom of the year award. Did you think of that? I'm loving it!

    Your Halloween looks like it was busy, and so festive :)

  3. It all looks like such fun and perfectly understandable why the boys were so excited when I saw you all in the morning!!
    I adore Sawyers face on that last photo - pure contentment :)

  4. oh such a sweet post! the gingerbread skeletons are it! your boys make me smile.....with their jack-o-lanterns and in a field of candy! cute cute cute!
