Halloween is one of my favorite holiday; I love all the beautiful Fall colors, the pumpkin patch, carving and decorating pumpkins and I love to see all the wonderful and creative costumes! This year might have been Nicholas' last year... he will be a Freshman in High School next year and who knows what he'll do? So this was a particularly important Halloween for me! I wanted everything to be perfect so I could capture all those memories! Unfortunately, because of lack of time and lack of enthusiasm on the part of the kids, we didn't go to Lombardi Ranch, our local pumpkin patch. Instead, we picked up some pumpkins at one of the vendors on the side of the road (which charged us an arm and a leg for each pumpkin I might add!). Anyways, we did carve the pumpkins and all three kids created their own Jack-O-Lanterns. And Saturday, all of them graciously dress up early so I could take some photos of their costumes.
It was a fun Halloween and the kids came back from trick-o-treating with enough candies to last us until next year... but most of all, I was to get my pictures and save those memories for years to come!
