halloween 2009

This Halloween was fantastic.  Had a great time with my kids and got together latter on with some of her school friends and the parent.   I watched my daughter go through an extreme costume transformation.  On Friday, Emma was Tinkerbell. Doesn’t she look angelic? We somehow misplace the wings overnight (which we have located), but…

    Luke and Michael had a WICKED good time.
    Thank you!
    I love that skeleton candle – creepy.ReplyCancel

  • I love the make-up and the crazy hair! You look awesome. And I’m kind of loving that your daughter chose to be a vampire…I think she’s primed and ready for the next Asbury Park Zombie Walk. 😉ReplyCancel

  • Laura – you aren’t kidding! I think she’d gladly participate. Maybe next year!

    Michelle – I’m glad they had a good time, that candle is supposed to ooze red wax out of the eyes but we didn’t let it burn long enough.

    Paulina, of course, Jimmy didn’t wear one. Next year!ReplyCancel

  • Your daughter is totally scaring the crap out of me! (Scary children are so much more scary than adults could ever be! If you don’t believe me, go watch pet cemetary!)

    Love your Halloween decorations – great way to hide the fog machine. But how did you plug it in out there?ReplyCancel

  • Mrs. Limestone – Thanks! Yes, I totally agree, kids dressed scary are totally scarier than grown-ups. We actually have outdoor outlets and extension cords running.ReplyCancel

  • Thanks Maggie. I still have a hard time looking at her in that photo of her hissing – it scares me!! 🙂ReplyCancel

    Gwen could not be any more beautiful.

    From the post below, I LOVE your stockings and stunning chandelier! There’s never enough sparkle.
    I have lots of snow. 🙂 Come visit Kansas and you’ll have plenty.

    Oh I can’t wait until I can get the pictures out of my camera again!!ReplyCancel

  • Your photos are simply a delicious delight, as is your lovely house. Are those pics of the little girl your daughter? She is just so precious and that fabulous hat reminds me of the one’s I wore as a child. My favorite is the one where she is sticking out her tongue to catch snowflakes.ReplyCancel

  • Yes, Gwen is my youngest.

    Thank you both for the nice comments. CelestialCharms, that’s my favorite shot too 😉ReplyCancel

  • Thanks for stopping by. That little girl is adorable. Great work. Photography is so awesome. I hope to one day understand and tackle camera technology. We just got our family pics taken and have been posted at photosbycook.com under portraits, Hunts. Merry Christmas.ReplyCancel

  • I love your photography – so beautiful. I love the shot of your daughter catching snow on her tongue. The snow just adds that extra something to the festive spirit of your house.ReplyCancel

  • very nice miss. thang! I am jealous…..down here at 98 all we had was RAIN! Blech!ReplyCancel

  • PamperingBeki – Thank you very much, she’s a ham, that’s for sure. Will be posting more photos of them soon. It was sort of like the shoemaker’s shoes this year with holiday portraits – but I threw something together at the verylastminute.

    Kasey, your portraits came out beautifully!

    Yes, Dawn, this was all we got. I really miss a good snow. Can’t remember the last time we had one 🙁 May need to travel up north this year to see some powder soon. My ski’s haven’t been touched in years!

    Thanks so much everyone for visiting, it’s nice to “meet” all of you.
