Halloween 2006

I think that I needed to refuel my imagination this year. Sure, I had some grisly ideas of what kind of dead body to leave on the porch but something didn't feel right about it. So, I took Kerry, Dave (Obi-wan Kenobi) and his cousins Jacob (football player with basket on his head) and Mackenzie (Dora The Explorer without the wig) out for a round of trick-or-treating. Here's a picture of them in front of their grandmother's house.

During the rounds, we stopped by my friends Mike and Kim's (also a great excuse to see their daughter Alyssa Rose.) Amazing how big she's getting and yes, that is really really red hair. There is a reason why they call her the redhead tornado around their house.

Prior to going out with the kids, Kerry and I stopped in to see Teri and give you a better understanding of why she hasn't posted in a very long time. She has her own Jacob and he is a very calm baby. You can't see it too clearly but Teri also has a little Halloween decoration on her shirt as she was silently getting ready for the holiday (I guess he was just 10 days old at this time.)

Overall, I had a great time and saw a few houses that gave me ideas for next year as it will be scarier than anything I've ever done. I just need to purchase and dye a bunch of bedsheets.

Wow, I am a bit surprised you didn't do your traditional Halloween, I remember it from last year!

Looks like you had fun though! Cute kiddos!

Great costumes - and that is one beautiful head of red hair on Alyssa Rose.

Jacob is one sweet-looking baby. Thanks for sharing the pictures. :)

Yeah. We were really bummed about not being home for Halloween this year. We'll have to pull that stops out next year!
