And now it is here again: Halloween! One of my favorite holidays of the entire year. It is so much fun to decorate the house, to carve pumpkins, to help Karolina with her costume. It is simply a wonderful time of the year. I get a kick out of making our house into a Haunted House. Love it! Love getting reactions from "Trick or Treati'n" kids that have comments on it, and that react on it. The spookier the better for me! It is the old "Visual merchandiser" that wakes up inside me this time of the year. This year it is extra fun for us since we have the company of the O-G family! We were all sitting outside this lovely afternoon/evening and carved pumpkins. Lisa will get her own pumpkin carving kit tomorrow and decorate her own house in Sweden next Halloween! Staffan carved out a spooky face out of his pumpkin. Karolina made two pumpkins, and I carved a spider out of mine.
Weather wise we are doing great! It is so warm outside! Will be great for tomorrow night. Tomorrow night I will definitely post a picture blog again with tomorrows pics! Tonight you'll see some Halloween pics from past years.
My little ten year old daughter is going to dress up as "Bleeding skelly bones", that was pretty much the worst costume she could find at the "Spirits" store here in Reston. Her make-up will be scary, scary!
More tomorrow night! Until then: Happy Halloween!!!

And to prove a point: she has not always been a "spook-gal". This is when she was 4 years old in pre-school during the Halloween party there.
