Ten Halloweens: Monday Listicles

This week's topic for Monday Listicles: "Ten Things Halloween." Even though I have fallen terribly short in the way of baby books, at least I have chronicled my kids' lives in photos and blogging. Well, given the fact that I got my first digital camera over 10 years ago around Kieran's birth, I happen to have 10+ years of Halloween photos. Here goes!

1. 2003:
Mickey Mouse and Ladybug

With my little ladybug (I still have that turtleneck!)
2. 2004
Family at the pumpkin patch
Kieran at the zoo (I seem to be lacking Halloween photos of Chris from this year!)
3. 2005 
Police officer and Cookie Monster (sans mask)
 4. 2006
At school Halloween parade (Yu-Gi-Oh, Buzz, and Winnie the Pooh)

Visiting Grandma and Grandpa for trick or treating
 5. 2007

  1. Love looking at all your Halloween photos thru the years.

  2. What a fun take on the prompt! I love looking back at old Halloween pictures!

  3. Love ET and Elliot. I've framed those kinds of Halloween memories through the years and bring them out every Halloween. So amazing to see how much the kids have grown.
