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.

Written by Janice, co-founder of 5 Minutes for Mom

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

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!

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!!!!

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

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.

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!
