halloween twenty thirteen

October 31 2013 028

i have had many great halloweens in my lifetime

as a young teen growing up in nj causing mischief the night before halloween and then the night of, all dressed up with friends trick or treating for hours through all the neighborhoods

as a young adult in nyc and in southbeach

but, this halloween took the candy corn

it was Lily’s halloween

this year, Lily was finally old enough to really participate and get excited for it

she picked out her costume, her make-up, she helped carve the pumpkins…

we got together with friends and neighbors and went trick or treating all together

this neighborhood in which we live… wow

such an awesome sense of community here

there was a decorating contest going on so a lot of the neighbors really went all out and made sure they were home in order to hand out candy to the kids

the local businesses too. handed out candy and were so welcoming to the trick or treaters

all the kids had a blast. and the parents too

halloween twenty thirteen, you rocked!

happy monday friends

hope you all had a great weekend. we sure did
