Halloween Through The Years

Adrienne did a post a couple of weeks ago in which she posted pictures from Halloween's past. I wasn't really ever one to dress up for Halloween but I did have one picture from when I was in college and dressed up. The rest are all of the kids. I started when Abbey was a baby taking them to JC Penney's and getting a professional picture in their costume and haven't missed a year since. I know this is kind of late for a Halloween post but I wanted to wait until I had this year's photo back.

Also, I have to apologize profusely to those of you with blogs for being so flaky in my commenting lately. I have been diligently reading them all but seem to always be in too much of a hurry to write a comment or at a loss for words. Just please know that you are never far from my thoughts :)

LOVE them all! So darling! What a great idea!

Kim said...

What great memories! I've never thought to get pictures made for Halloween. I have snapshots but they are here and there. I need to do better at taking pictures of my girls together. Abby is in this no photo phase hence the lack of pictures on my blog. I promise I really do have 3 girls!

Btw....costumes are great!

Lacey said...

Thats so cool that you take pics every year so you can remember.

Adrienne said...

These are so great! You had a great costume!! And I just love this year's pic!!

Heidi said...

I loved this post! It is so nice to see pictures of Abbey and Emma when they were little! They were adorable. I love the last picture - Ella is looking so cute!!

Cute cute pics...how cute your 3 girls are too...they have grown up so much! Love this year's pic too!

Stevenson Family said...

Oh I love it!! Ella looks so cute!

The picture in the pumpkin reminds my of my Sweet Ella, nicknamed Pumpkin, who is now 17 and off at school. I had to name an organic peanut butter after her to pay tuition.

What a great idea to compile all your Halloween pics, so fun to look back on and look at collectively! And the SNL church lady is a riot Denise!

I love all the pictures, but I do have to say the SNL church lady is one of my favorites! The guys must have been chasing after you!!

Tina said...

What adorable pictures, ofcourse the last one is my favourite too!! Not to mention the 1st one of you....I had to stare at it for quite a while to actually believe it was you. Great idea.

Cathy said...

Great pictures!! I can guarantee that I would not be that organized to be able to find all those pictures again. Luckily I only had to find one from 2008 to post.

Definitely start the thankful A to Z posts!! It's fun and it really helps remind me that I have sooooo much to be thankful for. If you started it today (Sunday) you would only have to do 4 to catch you up to be done by November 30th. Go for it!!!!!!

I have never done professional pictures for Halloween - but after seeing your pictures it really makes me wish I did. Your wordless Wednesday picture is so cute - I love how they can just fold up and fit anywhere!

Michelle said...

Those are Priceless! Love them all!!! :)
