While I might have been born in the summer, this is my absolute least favorite season. I grew up in Southern California and I managed to deal with the dry heat just fine. That said, moving to Pennsylvania…I didn’t realize there was humidity here. That makes summer even more intolerable! So I’m here looking forward to autumn, cooler air, wearing scarves, and just enjoying the scenery. Oh, and Halloween!
Another Halloween success! I managed to pick the perfect sized pumpkin for Rosebud this year, and he looked so cute sitting in it!
Front of the house, with Bandit the neighbor cat, who always stops by for a picture, and a bowl of food.
Bandit made sure to show up at night too, for more photos and food.
We should just call Bandit our porch cat, since we’re always feeding him, he’s always on the porch. We even ended up buying him a flea collar since his owners failed to do so. (Who’s in the window?!)
My daughter thought she was going to dress up as a rotten clown this year. I may or may not have gone over the fact that she hadn’t yet acknowledged her Icelandic/Norwegian heritage, and that maybe she should pick a goddess to dress up as. We went with Hel. =)
I hadn’t fully planned out the outfit. She told me a day before this photo was taken, that there was a trick-or-treating event in the mall, and her friend invited her to go. Thankfully I have a thing about saving fabrics, and we just so happened to have some faux fur laying around. Was it an outfit the goddess of the underworld would wear? Who knows, but it worked!
Anna and friends.
Taking Anna trick-or-treating. Also doing our part by cleaning the sidewalks with the train of the dress.
My Mother had waited on the corner, as we went to the last house of the night. Walking towards my Mother, she looked pretty creepy. The picture ended up out of focus due to how dark it was, but I like it!)
Instagram pictures-doing my makeup. Just eyeshadows and powder!
Me and my Mother. We decided that the three of us (my Mom, son, and I) would just be simple skeletons this year.
Family of skeletons and Hel. =P I hope you all (who celebrate) had a Happy Halloween!
