Our Halloween!


This was our first year with a front yard, so we had a lot of fun with decorations! 
I grew up in a home that celebrated and loved Halloween-we always went all Out!
It was so fun to be able to start those traditions in my own home :)

Hubby risking his life to put up spiderwebs! :P

This was the most fun. It was one huge piece of webs that we stretched from one tree to the other!

All decorations from Target. 
{the headstones, little webs, spiders, fence, and skeleton were part of a pack for $20!}

I had alot of fun painting these adorable little pumpkins {yes they're real!} 
It was all free-hand and I got the ideas off some Martha Stewart magazines.
She does the Best Halloween am I right?!

We had a grand plan to be Shoemakers {real ones from back then} 
because of our last name but procrastinated too long and went to plan B, 
which was Thing 1 and Thing 2 from Dr. Suess.

We stayed in and watched the original Psycho and pigged out on sweets. 
We even had a few trick-or-treaters come to our door! Our first time handing out candy!
Not the most eventful Halloween but still a fun one! 

How was your Halloween? Was it spoooooky??
Pin It!

LOVE the decor! And is there a newer version of psycho? Not that I would ever watch it, the old one scared me enough. But you said "the original psycho".

Loooove your decorations! Your yard looks so fun and festive :)I can't wait until we have a yard to do this kind of stuff!

Love, love, love, love! I can't wait until I have a yard and can decorate! For my family's party I went as a sheep and Briggs went as a farmer. Both costumes homemade. I'm already trying to plan out what I will be next year!

HOLY HALLOWEEN!!! You've made your mother PROUD!!!! I absolutely loved the spiderweb job you guys did. And the cemetery-look amongst the leaves was incredible!
I can't stop looking at the web-job you did on the headstone!!
And I also love the photography! I had to save some of them to my files.
WAY TO GO!!!!! :-D

Oh, I cannot wait to have a yard so I can attempt to make it look as cute as yours- love your decor! And I must admit, I got a little excited seeing the first pic of your costume- I thought you were going to say you were thing one and the baby in your belly was thing 2. Maybe next year...;-)?

Ok, so I definitely got really excited and thought you were pregnant for a second when I saw Thing 2 on your stomach because the first person I ever saw that costume was on a pregnant lady... so that's always my assumption. Whoops! I dressed up as a little girl for a party we went to and everyone thought I was just dressed up in 80s clothes. Such a disappointment. BTW, your decorations are adorable!
