the way I view halloween

It’s that time again!

Remember, after you peek at my images, don’t forget to see what my CMpro friends have for you by clicking through our blog circle.

This time we photographed what my girls LOVE to do best…dress up.

Halloween was a fun time at our house this year.

Our neighborhood is the go-to place around here for trick-or-treating.

Parents bring their little ones here because our ‘hood is SO HUGE and we give out the best candy.


I’m serious.

My girls got KING SIZED M&Ms from a house this year.

What the?!?

I remember? When I was a kid? I was given a BUSINESS CARD from someone running for office.

Oh. And he also gave me refrigerator magnets and said, “give these to your mom, kid”.

Ah…trick-or-treating is so much better these days.


Caroline went as a cowgirl (aka Dale Evans) and she skipped from house to house on that little stick pony.

Until her “yegs got tie-yurd”.

Allison was catwoman and she was fierce.

Emily, oh sweet Emily, was a greek goddess.

All quiet and “professional” about it all.

That is, until we started ringing doorbells. I’ve never seen a greek goddess run that fast.


How do you like this one?  Huh?  You like the way I used the gutter system to frame them?  And the planters, too?  You like that?   How ’bout those pumpkins in the background?  I told y’all we are serious about carving around here.


So, now that you’ve seen the way I view Halloween, head on over to see Jessica’s post and don’t forget to leave some love!
