Halloween and the magic of friends

Sunday~November 1st, 2009


They put on costumes, the kind that made them feel powerful
and brave enough to knock on the doors of strangers,
even strangers with masks and painted faces...

(well, okay. Sorta brave.)

They hurried from one house to the next,
less concerned with the fear factor
and more concerned with the treat factor...

(Superman, all covered in his coat)

They went to a Halloween party,
the kind that makes you feel like you bobbed for an apple
and got the biggest one...


with the best toys and the best view...




and good friends...(Liam, my friend Susan's sweet boy)



Halloween is so much fun...




Thank you, Susan. You brought the MAGICAL
to Halloween this year.
(That's Susan as Princess Leia AND as the Bumble Bee, pictured above.
Yeah, she rocks the Halloween party. You can visit her at Warm Chocolate Milk.)

Happy Halloween! (late)

Happy Halloween back at you, Heather!

Mama Kat said...

I love the picture with all the kids in their costumes lined up on the couch! So funny!

wonder woman said...

Just have to say......our boys would get along quite well. My boys have each been Superman, and the youngest went as Luke Skywalker this year. Originally he wanted to be Yoda, then Darth Vader, but I finally convinced him that Luke was actually do-able.

Happy Halloween!

What an awesome party. I totally forgot about bobbing for apples. I can't believe I didn't remember that.
Susan is pretty rockin'. Thanks for introducing me to her.

I haven't seen bobbing for apples in forever! That was great fun back in the day.

Stopped by from SITS.

Wonderful post! Love the photos of your wee ones trick or treating. Oh my, the party pics are delightful too!

Corinne said...

Looks like it was such a blast! What a fun way to spend Halloween :)

Heather of the EO said...

Yes, it was a great time. We actually went to Susan's Halloween party a few days back, I just combined our Halloween experiences in one post. (since we spent part of the evening with Susan and fam last night too).

Just don't want to be all misleading and stuff. :)

sara said...

awe, such great pictures. I do miss those days....I may have to pull out some old halloween pics!

Last night, we were here by ourselves. Our kids all had parties to go to...so I enjoyed each and every little goblin that came to my door!!!

Kim said...

Love it!! Looks like you had so much fun. I was going to do a party this year, but Amelia needed a filling and there went my party budget. Next year :)

Heather at Cookie Mondays said...

So much fun! That party looks amazing!

charrette said...

I love what you said about the costumes empowering them. This is how every Halloween should be, truly!

And I LOVE that you're friends with Susan in real life!

I always wanted to be Princess Leia for Halloween, but I always had short hair. So... one year for Halloween... I dressed as Princess Leia and wore brown ear muffs. Oh yes, I did. I am now totally jealous of your friend Susan. And wincing at the memory of said brown ear muffs.

(Oh, and your boys are cute. As always. Do I even need to say that?)

WILLOW TREE said...

My daughter is 3; every house we went to she said, "trick or treat! Can I come in please?" Good Times. Your crew is adorable.

Blessings, C~

wendy said...

I enjoyed the halloween photos. It is so fun to watch the kids get excited (and sometimes a little freaked out)
Halloween was a bummer for me this year. I miss my grandkids.

AND nothing like being at HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nate and I (and kids) are so bummed that you are moving away... but we want to still get together for Halloween festivities AND MORE in the years to come. SO FUN! This is life!! :)
