Can you believe I've been blogging for four years? I post an average of every second day and this is my 849th blog post!
The second post I wrote was October 31, 2008 and this is what my nephew William looked like 4 years ago.
Here he is this year at 5 years old. It was a rainy night tonight so he had his Super Puppy cape over his raincoat!
Here's Markus the dinosaur! When his hat wouldn't stay on with the little tiny piece of velcro at his chin, I came out of the bedroom with a safety pin. When I announced 'I've got a pin!' he said "Will it pinch me?"
Here's William with a little practice trick or treat at our door!
These were some impressive candy-bots on our street, they gave you a rating for the amount and quality of candy that went into their costumes, haha!
This is my Colour Me Happy pumpkin. There were so many amazing, creative pumpkins on our street I was clear mine was the job of an amateur carver, but there is always next year.
There were lights in the witches hat but they did not show up well in the dark! We have a fun street with lots of kids, thankfully we only had about 5 small candy bars left.
My sister Anita is always posting stuff Noah says on her Facebook page (he's 7, below), this is what he said about Halloween:
Noah: Mom what does rip mean?
Noah: Ya, like on the things with the bones on it for halloween! I want a rip to decorate for Halloween.
Anita: R.I.P. is not a word it stands for rest in peace. It marks the grave where people are buried. . .
Noah: When you die I'll get you a rip. I'll get daddy one too but your rip will be nicer.
Anita: I'm touched.
Happy Halloween my lovelies! xo Maria
