Happy Halloween!

I will be the first to admit that this is just a repost from last year...that what happens when you don't get it together...but I still think the pictures are funny, so here you go!

I hope that your Halloween is filled with candy and treats, and children who enjoy their sugar induced comas...and since I have to work tonight, I hope that mine is filled with new people who make a grand entrance with enough time for their parents to stuff them into their 'first costume'...

**********

I adore holidays - that should come as no surprise. I love the decorating, the celebrating, the whole thing. I won't go so far as to say that Halloween is my favorite holiday, but I still enjoy it quite a bit.

And so I offer you a montage of Halloween - mostly from long ago. Although I do not have access to pictures from every year (because most are at my parents house several hours away), I did manage to find a few gems...

Like my very first Halloween - I was an angel. Obviously my true nature was clear, even from a young age.

Angel Maggie
You might think that I was crying because I wasn't excited about the holiday. You would be wrong - I was really crying because I was coming to the realization that my parents were incredibly dorky.
Mom and Dad in Costume - 1981
If you realized that you came from that, you would probably be crying too.
And while I am obviously always an angel, I don't always dress as one.
Sometimes I'm an artist.

Or Snow White.

Being Snow White clearly started a trend, as I have been known to dress as a Disney Princess on more recent occasions as well.

And although I am sure that you are quite distressed that you have missed my full Halloween history, perhaps it will be something to look forward to next year. And I will also leave you with a shining example of why I am forced to spoil my pets the majority of the year. Because on certain occasions I can be totally cruel to them.
Pumpkin Joey
Can you tell how excited he is to be dressed as a pumpkin?
And my personal favorite - the Halloweenies!

Happy Halloween!

OMG...your poor pets! I don't speak cat or dog...but none of them look thrilled to be "dressed by Maggie!"

So funny! Hope you guys had a great Halloween.

Okay, I can't help but laugh at your poor pets!!!

But you know how you keep saying what an ugly kid you were? this provides urther evidence refuting that claim.

Hope you've had a great one!
