Sorry the quality of my photos is not that great. It was so hectic getting everyone fed, ready and on their way. I was lucky to snap any at all. Looking at them, I wish I had slowed down and planned my shots better. Oh well. Everyone had a very FUN night and that is what matters!

  1. Wow, Kim... I was just thinking your pictures are GREAT! Really!!
    Taking pictures of a group of boys getting ready to go out trick or treating HAD to be tough!
    Love Kate's shoes, I BET she loved those :)

  6. Such cute pictures! I have an idea about how you can use the lanterns again...what if you got different globes to hang for the different holiday's? Like Christmas trees for Christmas or Easter Eggs for Easter?! Just an idea!! Good luck with the sleepover!

  13. I think they are perfect shots, reflecting the busy, exciting time. You can feel it, especially with the boys 'cool' posing!

    Kate is such a sweet snow white and I wish I knew where I could have found some shoes like that! Kim, you are the best shopper, I swear.

    I wanted to also tell you how much I appreciated your supportive comment on the silent post. I even got a little choked up. You are very sweet. Thank you.

    PS love Kate's dress and the warty pumpkin below too...now I am off to watch 'Nightmare before Christmas' with John and B2. They say its our tradition...I say I am tired! lol

  20. Looks like everyone had a blast on Halloween. I especially cute little Snow White's light up high heels:) I tried to talk Sarah into the Cinderella costume so we could get light up shoes too, but she wanted to be a pink fairy princess! Maybe next year:)

  23. Great costumes and pics! My Snow White would be very envious of those shoes!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Such cute pictures!! Look like everyone had so much fun!! And I'm loving the bokeh!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I know Kate LOVED those shoes. Watch out...she may beg to wear them lots!!

    All your pictures are great! I know how hard it is to get everyone together for a pic. You aren't worried about the background or the lighting....you are just trying to get them all together.

    Love your lanterns!

  26. I was admiring Snow White's shoes myself!! Loved everyone's costumes - you are such a fun Momma!

    ReplyDelete
  27. aww .. Kate is too precious in her Snow White gown .. and those shoes!:)
    You boys look great too ... first year I did not have a boy dress up for Halloween and it is very sad! Even sadder that I never had a girl to dress up! ;) Griff just didn't want too - the past few years all he wore was a football jersey and hat anyway, just never too into it. He had fun regardless - went to a friend's for a party and sleepover.

  31. Actually, I'm impressed you got a shot of all those boys actually looking at the camera! Heh. And Will looks a bit like my Dad - he was a Marine aviator (and yes, he attended "Top Gun," although it's not nearly as cool as the movie made it appear).

  32. Please tell me where you got the Snow White shoes....I have to buy some for Sophia :)

  33. The pictures are great!!! I took lots of pictures but a moving target is very hard to photograph!! Had a great time and I love Kate's costume and her Halloween pillow case dress!!! Love the pumpkin luminaries!!!

  34. The kids looks terrific in their costumes. I love the picture of the three peanuts together...and the big one of Kate...so beautiful! Glad that you had such a great night! My kids love Halloween and so do I. I love seeing all the kids running through the neighborhood, but especially love when they come to my door. Hannah missed out because she was in bed with the flu this year. She was very disappointed, but Emma carried two candy bags and collected treats for them both.

  39. First let me say--your pictures are fantastic. I feel like I was so frantic and mine are not planned or very good at all!
    Second, I love Kate with all her brother's friends--too cute!
    I am having so much fun looking at everyone's Halloween photos.
    Funny, we have had such a busy week I can't get all my pics straight---October has been picture crazy!!
