A New Look and Our Halloween

Before I talk about Halloween, have you seen the new blog?  It is amazing!  Colleen of Paisley Boulevard did a redesign for me and I love it!  Don't you? :)  I cannot thank her enough for all of the time she spent on this little tiny blog and want her to know how grateful I am for it!

What a great October we had!  First up was the pumpkin patch a few weeks ago to pick out our pumpkins.

Next up was the Halloween party last Saturday.  I did my old standby vampire costume, and my hubby was a Peruvian since he had a few authentic pieces--but I didn't get a picture of him.
Scary!  The hubs ended up winning both the chili contest and the pumpkin carving contest.  I might have to post the chili recipe here some day, it really is delicious.  And here is the winning pumpkin:
Along with our other non award-winning pumpkins:

Trick or treating with the kids is always fun.  They both get so excited and their excitement is infectious.  Every time Bud got a new piece of candy he'd say his bucket was getting heavy, or that he was getting "lots and lots" of candy.  Here's our kitty and football player:
Hope you all had a great Halloween!


  1. HA, hey too funny, I've been looking around to get my blog redesigned too!! Great minds think alike ;) LOVE the look, looks super cute!!

    The winning pumpkin is so cool lookin'! I've always wanted to try something different like that. Nice job on makeup, very pretty!! :)

  2. They look really great in their costumes and I love everyone's pumpkins...even the ones without awards.

    Really love your blog design too. Looks great!
