Happy Halloween! “The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.” -Peter Pan
The cast of peter pan
As I write this post, a baby is asleep on my shoulder and I’m cherishing being able to savor this moment of my baby sleeping in my arms.
This year, we decided what to be all the way back in the summer. My oldest daughter had the idea of Peter Pan and each person picked their own characters. I loved how my middle son refused to be the crocodile and insisted he would be “the silly guy, Smee”.
The babies had the cutest reaction and they were great sports about being dressed up. They loved the entertainment and excitement of the night. They even joined in the trick or treating fun.
Decorations and party time!
The party at a friend’s house and trick or treating decorations were incredible! We couldn’t believe the pirate ship, wherewolf and creepy doll! (Check them all out on the slideshow/video, here! They went all out!!
Pirate house surprise
See our shock and surprise (caught on video) as we trick or treat at the pirate house! OMG Arrr… (minute 4 of the slide show)
Pot roast and sorting the goods
We loved having pot roast with family and the kids loved their candy dessert! The babies even showed the big kids what candy they got! Make sure you don’t miss that in the slideshow!
Thank you so much to all the friends and loved ones who went all out to make this such a special night. We will cherish the memory of the night which is summed up in this 6 minute slideshow/video.
Our slideshow from the big night! It was fun and we were exhausted by the end of it!

Last year, the bigs and mids picked their own costumes so we had hodge podge of choices, a koala, Princess Elsa, a ghost and a pirate plus our two little pumpkins. Our first Halloween as a family of eight was so fun. I remember being exhausted getting everyones costumes on! I have a little trick that I've done for years... we have a dress rehearsal day where everyone makes sure their costumes fit and we get a great picture to post on Halloween. Then on the special day, we can just enjoy the moment knowing we have a photo ready to go.
From carefree newlyweds…
to a family of eight.
