A Fun Halloween


We had a lot of fun tonight! Chase was supposed to be a knight but instead chose his storm trooper costume from last year. The streets were loaded with trick or treaters. Sassy got so much attention! We gave out at least 500 pieces of candy and still ran out. The kids loved the spider. He He. What a night!



Thank you Santamaker for this idea!! It was a hit!!

The eyes flashed on this pumkin


I said I would show you the tops of my kitchen cabinets but I got caught up in Halloween. Look for those on my next post! I hope you all had a fun night! I know my music doesn't match my post but I was in the mood for some 80's love songs.

Loved your pumpkins! Isn't Halloween night so much fun? I should've given you some of my candy. I expected more trick or treaters, because we usually have so many, but this year I bought too much candy and now don't know what to do with it all. Yikes! I don't want to be tempted. I'm planning on looking at Walgreens for that spider you had. Thanks for sharing the info. I found out my neighbor had one on her door too. I didn't even know that. I don't have a blog, but just put my rooms on RMS (like you did). Check them out and let me know what you think. I'm listed as 11044991. I like the same style and bright colors that you have.

Chase & Sassy are just too adorable! Love the porch decorations too.

We had sooo many kids, we ran out of candy. I think people were driving their kids into the neighborhood. :0} Diane

Hi Kelly, I would love to see your rooms on RMS but when I put in your # they're not coming up. I think the site is messed up, mine don't come up either some times. I'll keep trying, if there's any other way I can find them let me know. Kristen

Wow your decorations were spectacular... and Chase... what can I say... he is even charming with his Storm Trooper costume on... Glad fun was had by all...

Glad you all had so much fun! Sassy was about the cutest dog I've ever seen. Love it! Now I don't feel silly that I dress up Chestnut every Christmas for our Family card. LOL!

Chase looks valiant as a trooper! and the dog, so cute!

Melissa Miller said...

Hello Kristen, Just wanted to let you know I took the plunge and set up a blog. It's not much but it seems like it will be fun. Stop by if you get a chance. You're always Welcome!
Take Care, Melissa

Bo said...

Hi Kristen...wow, you had a huge turnout for Halloween at your home..you must have been giving out some really good candies!
;-) Bo

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Kristen, Thanks so much for your support! It means so much. I must admit I had no idea what I was doing and my brilliant husband helped me with setting up most of it. I hope I get better....
Have a good one.~ Melissa

Kelly said...

Hi Kristen, Since you're having trouble pulling up my spaces under my # ID, try one of my titles. I was able to bring up one of my spaces that way. Type in "sunny breakfast area" in the search field and mine is the 3rd one down. Once you pull that space up you'll be able to see the rest. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it will work this time. Thanks for trying to look at them. I love your home, by the way. It is one of my FAVORITES!!!

This is my first visit to your lovely blog.
Halloween is a huge event around my house. A few years back I grew to miss the days when my boys were young treaters soooo, I reclaimed the holiday. There's no greater reward than when I open my door to all those beyond thrilled faces! It's priceless.
Sweet Wishes,
Sara

Hey Kristen!
Looks like you had a funfilled Halloween! Your son looks fantastic as a storm tropper!
You did an outstanding job on the scary pumpkin! See, it wasn't that hard... turned out great! We had a ton of kids too, I wish I had taken photos.

Kristen said...

Loved Sassy and the Storm Trooper.

Thanks for the info. Dealing with addiction can be hard and you should have an intervention for people you love when they need the extra help.
