Wordless Wednesday — Olivia the Little Ghost

by Janice


On the way to Auntie’s…

Olivia, in her ghost costume, running to Susan’s house so we could start our trick or treating together.

Did you post Halloween Photos this week??? Link up in our Halloween Link Up 2010!

Here is a fun thumbnail linky…

But if you prefer the old style, you can use this linky:

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Did you know that Susan and I own two online toy stores where you can find unique toys for Christmas like a pedal car or an inspiring toy kitchen. You know, in case Santa needs any ideas!

That picture SO brings back memories of the excitement of being a kid on Halloween :)

I have a picture of my twin girls (they’re a year old) from the back…you can see their little Tinkerbell wings – it’s my favorite picture!!

It is so fun to experience life again through our kids. :)

It always makes me smile to hear how close you and your sister are, and that your children get to share in that relationship.


5 Janice November 3, 2010 at 12:12 am

Yes – we are SO blessed to have each other!!! I am SO grateful our kids have each other. And I love her little girls just as much as my kids do! We are all one family!

Love that pic!!!


14 Kat November 3, 2010 at 12:20 am

We don’t celebrate Halloween so I can’t say that the photo brings back any memories, but you sure can feel her sense of urgency there! :) She is READY to get to her aunt’s house and start the fun! haha :) I wish my sister and I were close… I really admire the relationship you guys have, like Cat said!


15 Janice November 3, 2010 at 11:45 am

She sure was excited! :) We are so blessed to be close to each other!!! I thank the Lord every day for it!

18 Tammi November 3, 2010 at 12:21 am

That is a great photo, Janice!
I love the color on your trees still – ours are naked and bare. Kinda eerie at night though!
And the motion – get that Candy Olivia!!!!



19 Janice November 3, 2010 at 11:46 am

Oh yes – I guess in colder places the leaves are gone. We will lose ours soon – November winds quickly take care of that!


20 alicia November 3, 2010 at 12:28 am

Awwwwwww!!! You’ve captured this so beautifully. Happy WW!


21 Janice November 3, 2010 at 11:46 am

24 Mimi November 3, 2010 at 1:10 am

It looks like a beautiful night where you are! Love the red trees on the right and the green on the left. I also love that you can see Olivia running! Great capture of trick or treating in progress!


25 Janice November 3, 2010 at 11:47 am

We were SO grateful! It has been raining for 10 days but it stopped JUST for that day – started raining again late that night.


26 Alex November 3, 2010 at 1:21 am

So much about this picture is amazing! It’s just a great shot! I bet she was tired after all that running. Hehe.

40 AndMilesToGo November 3, 2010 at 6:54 am

and what an adorable ghost!


41 Beth November 3, 2010 at 7:30 am

I have to say it looks like you had fantastic Fall weather for Halloween. By evening here it was so cold and eventually there was hail and sleet in places.


42 Amy November 3, 2010 at 7:31 am

Awww. She looks like something out of a children’s story book. Too precious!


43 The Gang's Momma November 3, 2010 at 7:49 am

Aww, what a cute view of the festivities. We crashed on the couch and snuggled together during a football game – I had just returned from an unexpected emergency trip home to be with my folks… and we totally forgot to make our yearly alternate plans!

Check out our “election day off” pic . . .


44 Melanie November 3, 2010 at 8:00 am

What a beautiful shot you got! Hope she had a wonderful Halloween :)


47 Real Life Sarah November 3, 2010 at 8:20 am

How fun to live within walking distance! I dream of living close to my brother’s family, but we can’t leave our town!


48 Mel November 3, 2010 at 8:43 am

She sure seems excited!


49 Angela Giles Klocke November 3, 2010 at 8:58 am

I love the feel to this shot. Feels cool and crisp, but it’s also nostalgic. :)


50 Lisa November 3, 2010 at 9:10 am

Oh gosh, she is so cute running so fast to Susan’s! And OMG, I must.live.on.that.street. Under those beautiful autumn trees, actually. Autumn is my ABSOLUTE favorite.


51 Carol November 3, 2010 at 9:24 am

What a precious ghost — I know she didn’t get any rocks in her bag.



74 SoCoMom4James November 3, 2010 at 5:17 pm

I like how you captured the mood of the dusk falling and an exciting evening ahead … and yes, she is a cutie!


75 Val Garner November 4, 2010 at 2:30 pm

What a cutie, and the obvious skipping motion really adds to the photo.

I love it! I bet she had a blast! :) Hope you had a great weekend!
