Our family celebrates Halloween each year by dressing up and trolling the neighborhoods. Flashlights, glow sticks and trick-or-treat bags in hand...
I am not one of those moms that make my children's costumes.
I am one of those moms that B@#*& about how much costumes cost now in days :)
My oldest son must have the scariest, goriest costume available.
He is now 12 and I wonder if he should even be trick-or-treating anymore?
Isn't their a rule about when kids should stop?
Maybe I should Google it, or if you know, please tell me!!!
My youngest son, has no choice in his costumes. He's only 18mo's.
I'm excited for next year, he'll be 2 &1/2 and I'm sure able to pick out his own costume.
But for now, mommy and daddy pick.
And we picked what is def the most fitting to his personality and to our budget....a $10.00 (yea, 10 bucks) Quaterback Costume. All the moms out there who make their children's costumes have my UTMOST respect, 1// I wish I could operate a sewing machine, and 2// I wish I had the time and patience to create outfits...but I don't know if this costume could of been made for under $10.00 buck-a-roos!

Holy crap, that makes me feel old.
Take a look at these pics of
Halloween's Gone By
And thankfully, I matured out of the "Heeeey" smile phase....geeez! ha.ha.
My how times have changed....from my sweet 5 year old Ninja to my 9 year old Zombie Dr., to my 11 year old Masked Graffiti Punk of last year with his baby brother, Landon, the Giraffe.
One more throwback to last year....to include the cutest, most adorable cousins ever.
We are relieved that "Sandra" AKA Hurricane Sandy has blown through and thankfully left our city with very little damage. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who haven't been so lucky. It's sad to think that so many will not be able to celebrate this Holiday and will still be in repair for the upcoming Holidays.
My hope is that you all have a safe and happy Halloween if you partake in its celebration.
If you don't, stay warm and enjoy the last night of October.
For me this night marks the start to the...
