Halloween is a holiday that is taken very seriously at our household. My dad spends days in preparation to completely deck out the house with new ideas every year. He slaves away carving upwards to 25 pumpkins. He's been doing this ever since I can remember. We are always the first house on every trick or treaters list. That's half because of my dads intricate decorations but also half because we give out the best things! From baseball cards, to vampire teeth, to traditional candy all the way to beanie babies. My mom stocks up on toys all year long to have for this one night. Ok, enough bragging. We REALLY like Halloween. This year was Jack's (my nephew) first Halloween as well as his cousin Celia's. All the family came over as usual and like always, I feel the need to make everything into a photoshoot. Here's what our night looked like!
I was a photo making machine this weekend! Three separate shoots all mixed in with visiting family and friends from near and far. This was one of my favorites though. Alex is one of my old time friends from way back in the day. Our group of friends caused a lot of ruckus but mainly just goofed off through our high school years. It's so crazy to see him now; all grown up and expecting a daughter with Courtney. The look on his face whenever we talked about his future little girl was priceless. He's as much of a goof as he was ten years ago and Courtney seems to be just the woman to keep him in line. I'm so happy for you two! The countdown begins!
