This is Halloween!

October has gone by so fast!! can’t believe that tomorrow is the first day of November! Halloween was great this year. My party with my family turned out great. My sisters Monica and Alison helped to make the food great and we all had a great time eating, visiting and watching scary movies! We watched several goosebumps movies, which the kids really liked and then later that night a few of us watched The Birds (such a classic). Unfortunately I didn’t take ANY pictures at the party! While I wish that I would have taken some, it was nice to just enjoy the party and relax (originally I was going to set up my light stands and backdrop and do studio photos of everyones costumes…next year!).

Yesterday was a pretty busy day. I went with my sister’s Monica and Alison to Woodland park Zoo in the morning and stayed there until the afternoon. Every year the zoo has a special Halloween event. They give the animals pumpkins and pumpkin treats… they call it a Pumpkin Smash. It was very rainy while we were there, but it was fun to see all of the animals. I got some great shots of the gorillas and several other animals. I haven’t edited them yet, but when I do I will post them on here.

As soon as I got home from the zoo I had to rush off to the church to decorate a room for the Halloween activity that was being held there that night. Each family in the congregation decorated a room in the church building and after dinner the children went trick or treating from room to room. It was so fun to see how everyone decorated their rooms, and to see all of the cute halloween costumes. It was a great activity. I hope they do it again next year!

Well, as I am writing this all of the trick or treaters have come and gone. We had a good number this year. In fact, we gave out every single piece of candy this year!

All in all it has been a great Halloween season! I am already excited for next year!
