HALLOWEEN TIMELINE

Since this is my first year blogging, I thought I would do a timeline for the major holidays. You can check out the Easter timeline here.  It really brings back memories when I put together posts like this.  Sorry, I know I have been a bit sappy lately about my kids growing up.  I think my youngest turning five really got to me.  Looks like we have officially moved out of the baby stage in our lives.  I even gave away all of our baby clothes over the weekend.  That was a big step! I have been hoarding them all for years, just in case.  I was finally ready to let go and move on.  I am so looking forward to all the adventures we will have as our children grow older, starting with trick-or-treating tonight. 

But first, here's a look back from the beginning of our Halloween adventures (with kids).

2002 (Little Ladybug - made by my mother)


2003 - Angel (made by my mother)

2004 - The frog and the princess

2005 - Cowgirl and Cowboy

2006 - Dorothy and the Lion

The skeleton joined our family in 2006 just five days before Halloween

The Bengal football player, the Bengal tiger and the Bengal Cheerleader. 
(the tiger looks a little happier this year)

A witch, a jockey and Elvis. 

Indiana Jones, a Bengal Football Player and a Police woman.  
(this was our first Halloween in our new house)

A Vampire, Hermione and Harry Potter.

This year we will have a Ninja, a Wearwolf and a Competitive Gymnast in the house. 
Are you ready for Halloween?
