All Hallows Eve at the Destree House 2016

Another Halloween has come & gone, kids! We had a really great night hanging out with my brother, sister-in-law & friend, eating chili, handing out candy & watching horror movie trailers & commercials from the 80's & 90's (a yearly tradition)!

Rick really out did himself with the yard decorations this year! I was so impressed! We carved up the rest of our pumpkins this afternoon while watching "Sleepy Hollow" & he put the finishing touches on his lights, scarecrow, jumping ghost, writhing skeleton hand & fog machine.

I always like to dress up for Trick or Treating & after pulling a blue wig out of my costume box, I decided on Coraline! It just so happens that one of our friend's daughters also dressed as Coraline & we just couldn't resist taking a few pictures! In addition to handing out candy, Rick & I both designed two original book marks to hand out to the kiddos! We ran out!

I love Halloween, if you couldn't already tell. I look forward to it every year and I get kind of sad when it ends. There's a spooky vein that runs through my life, all 365 days of the year. But I have to say, we really did it up right this year! I can't think of one single thing that I wish we had done in addition to all the other great stuff we did. It was such a full month, but I don't feel worn out. I am ready to bid Halloween goodbye. I am definately looking forward to the holiday season & so much that comes with it! I hope you'll join me in my adventures!

Stay tuned, friends!
