happy halloween!
this felt like the halloween that almost didn't happen.
we had rain all day and the forecast was a dismal 100% rain expected for the evening, but lucky for us the clouds parted for just a bit and we made it almost all the way around our block with only a tiny sprinkle.

aubrey loved this night and went from house to house like a pro!
she had a blast and didn't let the rain slow her down at all. 
so cute to see her check that her candy was nut free before putting it in her bag.
we had to tape her amulet on to ensure it wouldn't fall off.
she was a little over protective of it i think and kept her hands on it most of the night.:)



expecta patronus

this costume was a loooong time in the making.
in fact, i think she started planning for it and bookmarking pages last october.
she was so excited to finally wear it and kept saying "i've been waiting for this since forever!"
perfectly adorable hermione don't ya think?

::nancy drew::

perfect costume for my mystery lover.
she has devoured every nancy drew book...at least twice!
a first for us this halloween...she was invited to a friends house after school for a party, dinner and trick or treating. the party and dinner were fine...but she had to be home with us for the good parts!:)
and really...i think she wanted it that way too.
i'm not ready for those days yet!!!

two poor attempts at night time shots, our "leave the candy and run" front door and our neighbors, best buds and partners in candy acquisition for 7 years now.

back home with our loot and our most interesting find of the night.:)

hope your night was filled with sweet treats too!


  1. Perfect Halloween! Awesome pictures. Oh that Riley... and the faces she made as Nancy Drew! And sweet Janey... you were awesome! Aubrey... we love Sophia over here too! Love it all! Yeah for Halloween!

  2. Love your pictures...Looks like a wonderful Halloween.

  3. Love it Cindy!
    Love them all...but I have to say the Nancy Drew is AWESOME!!!!
    And I am so glad your sweetie opted to go with the family... that is sooooo hard when they break away...family things aren't the same!
    Love seeing you here, my dear friend!!

  4. Such amazing costumes! I think all three are very creative, but as some who loves to read (English major here) I must say Janey's costume is my favorite! She looks so happy in it, too.

    I love that every picture is filled with excitement/anticipation. Glad it was such a good night (with little rain) :).

  5. Cindy, these pictures are amazing! I love them. The girls all look so great in their Halloween costumes. That soda can is definitely an interesting trick or treat find! Boyd had a juice box last year in his bag. :)
