So by now you know that we are doing the Superhero thing this year for Halloween. Our costumes were a combination of borrowed, assembled, and made.

It is my tradition each year to show you a parade of our family costumes from years past. Each year the parade gets a little longer. This year I get to add last year’s costumes as well as this year’s costumes because they have already been revealed. 2013 I knew it was only a matter […]

Halloween Family Costume Parade 2012

The Wizard of Oz Costumes

Have you started thinking about Halloween, yet? It has become a tradition for our family to dress as a group each year.

Last week, I showed you the sweet surprise anniversary party I helped to throw.   The highlight of the decorations was the crepe paper streamers that I ruffled in various combos and laid across the white linens.
