A Little Catching Up and Happy Halloween

Doc and I had a great couple of days away. We didn't do much to take pictures of, so I'll spare us all by not posting any pictures of our trip. We saw some snow, but not near as much as the weather reports had led us to believe there would be.

I came home to Halloween parties, soccer games, a birthday party and some babysitting. Blog reading has taken a back seat for a few days and I will try to catch up next week, or if not catch up, start from scratch.

My Halloween party pics won't win any prizes either, but these are the best I got.

Ellis, as a very cute Dora, mostly just wanted to show me her backpack.

Jared was a very elusive Whoopee Cushion.

Hope, as a Hippie, is always ready to pose for a picture.
She wasn't quite sure whether to believe me or not when I
told her I remember when people really dressed that way.

Beck wasn't quite sure what to make of all the festivities.

  Dodger had a little Halloween fun of his
own at the place he stayed while we were gone.
He seems to be asking where the treats are.

Tonight some of my grandkids will be here for Jack-o-lantern pizza and some trick or treating here before they go home for more trick or treating in their own neighborhoods.

Happy Halloween to everyone


  1. Yep, I'm old enough to remember the hippies and their clothing choices. It wasn't my style, but I sure do remember it.

    The kids look cute for sure, and Dodger is wearing the obligatory orange. He deserves that treat.

    And what is Jack-O-Lantern pizza? Do tell.

  2. Jack-O-Lantern Pizza sounds like fun. My Granddaughter was Dora the Explorer last year. So cute. This year she is going as a pixie fairy. What is Dodger going as?

  3. Love all those little Halloween critters, including Dodger.
    We went away to the coast last week, and like you, had a very nice and relaxing time. I'll be posting about it on my blog.
    Happy Halloween to you and yours.

  4. I should have saved some of my hippie clothes, but alas, I finally threw them all away along with my polyester dresses from the 70s and 80s. Cute kids--thanks for sharing!

  5. Adorable...Happy Halloween...

  6. I bet you´ll have such a good time, trick or treating with the kids.
    Glad you had a good trip and are home again.
    I usually just press "mark as read" when all the blog reading overwhelms me.

  7. What fun you'll have. I'm a little envious. I do think you will sleep well tonight! Love the kids and their costumes.

  8. Yep and one of those old hippies was me! Funny huh? Love the kids they are all adorable and the DAWG!!!! Glad your having fun! I'm trying my best to avoid candy. Not succeeding either....

  9. Boys love the Whoopee Cushion costume-- What a hoot.
    Hope they have lots of fun trick-or-treating.
    Welcome home!

  10. Happy Halloween! What is Jack-o-lantern pizza?

  11. Cute pics. It says something when what we used to wear is now a Halloween costume!

  12. glad you and Doc had a few good days away!! I agree with you, if you don't catch up with blogs, just start again, we get so wrapped up in them we sometimes forget "real life". Beck is sooo cute just sitting there taking it all in! loved the other "grands' outfits" all too cute!!

    hope all had a fun safe time!


  13. I got such a kick out of Beck's expression. He really looks like he's rather surprised by everyone's shenanigans.

  14. Sometimes it's nice when things are fun and low key! You have some mighty sweet Grands there!

  15. Looks like Beck and Dodger were thinking the same thing! Cute shots!

  16. What memories your makin' with your grandkiddos! I adore the little 'whoopee cushion' how cute is that???

    I'm so happy you and Doc had a great trip and please...bore us with pics! :o)

  18. Awwwww...what a cute little collection of goblins!

  19. Everyone is so cute. I love Halloween when we can all dress up and let our inner silliness come out.
