Hammond Halloween

We had our annual Halloween party with pumpkin bread bowls and soup, followed by trick-or-treating and homemade doughnuts (thanks Karin!).
Ray has worn this outfit every Halloween for 7 years now. We're all waiting for him to shock us one year with a different costume. My choices were quite limited this year!
My cute sister made all of these Star Wars costumes for her fam - quite impressive!

Grandma dancin' in the street!


Recognize the pink dress, anyone? Bethany decided to put on one of my old dance costumes and be me for Halloween. She even drew on the mole that I have since had removed. Ray said I should be honored, but somehow I think she was mocking my 80's fabulous-ness!

Blake as Batman, Marinne as Nancy Drew (she's read about 30 of those books), & James as a dalmatian, along with some cousins and a friend

Bread bowls are the best! I'm glad Heath's sister introduced us to the Halloween tradition. I love all the costumes! Sophie and Saige play dress up with my old pink dance dress.

Bethany and your mom crack me up and I love your pumpkin tummy!:)

OH Emmalee, I wish that we lived closer to all of you..(OOOO I sound like Grandma Grace) but it looks like you all have so much fun together. I do wish that my kids had more family (good family) around them. I am impressed that you have Halloween pictures on your blog the day after... wow!!!

Great tradition we have! It looks like you guys all had a fun Halloween. Lari's outfit is to cute! And yours. Faith wants me to sew her that same dance outfit because Sophie has Heather's...I don't think I'll be sewing it though...Is yours for sale??? I remember all the fun Halloween's we used to have with you and your family. and your house!!! The memories are so fun to remember!

Hey, I remember that costume. Didn't you wear that for Jr. Miss? I remember watching your mom put on those rhinestones around the hearts. You were so fabulous back then and are even more so now. Everyone wants to be like you not just Bethany. I want to come to the party next year. I hate missing out on the fun.
