Ghosts from Halloween Past

Halloween is almost upon us...spooky ain't it. How fast time flies when your having fights over pumpkins, costumes, candy consumption and more, FUN!! I have been revisiting old photos for several days, (out of sheer insanity) no, really because I was trying to organize a mess on the backup server. Anyway, it got me remembering all the pumpkins we have carved, the costumes we've bought and the fun we've had. Each year we carve pumpkins a day or two before Halloween, someone ultimately ends up crying, or throwing a fit about something (usually mom!)
Halloween night tends to be BITTER cold and the kids end up looking like abominable snowmen instead of the Halloween characters the intended to be - but it is always fun. Grandma and Grandpa come over for Pizza and hand out candy while Todd and I get to take the girls trick or treating! That is a treat for everyone!

The first year we took Lauren trick or treating we went to the 4 closest neighbors and called it a night, the first year we took Hailey trick or treating she tried to barge into every house...Door Opens = Hailey Enters! It was cute. Anyway this year it is supposed to be like 60 degrees
Halloween night - I am pretty stoked about that!

We don't have pumpkins yet, think I better do that tomorrow! Probably carving Thursday night this year (the day Lauren gets her retainer - not such a treat!)

In the meantime I thought you might enjoy some pictures from years past. Can you guess who is who?

OMG! Cailey had the exact same Minnie costume at about the same age ~ as far as I can tell :o) Too cute!

Too Funny Alicia - Lauren was 4 in the Minnie Mouse Costume! Halloween 2004! Was it the same for Cailey?

Okay, Connor and I think we have this figured out. Picture #1 H, 2. L (that's a hard one could be H)
3. L, 4. L, 5. H, 6. H 7 & 8 both, 9. L. let me know how we did.
