a new tradition...

For the past many years we do the same thing every year on October 31st.

We head up the Kris and Lisa's for the evening.

They put on a big spread...
and the kids leave with bags of treats!

Most who arrive at the door come incognito...

...even the big kids.

But Grammy and Grandpa opt to come as themselves!

The youngest of the gang was a cupid...complete with bow.

Oh...and we celebrated his birthday while we were all together.
What fun!  
More on that soon.
I think it will be a new tradition.


  1. I'm suddenly hungry for crisp big purple grapes. Raggedy Ann was so cute. .as were the rest of the gang.
    It seems like you are starting a tradition we've held dear for many years already. Happy 1st birthday to the little one.

  2. Looks like you all had fun....I would love a bite of the dinosaur cake!

  3. That looks like a whole lot of fun!
    I'll be saving the picture of that cake for a birthday just before Christmas.

  4. Isnt it nice to mix new and old traditions.

  5. This is a wonderful family tradition Judy! Fun for the children and adults alike.

    The little one's purple dinosaur cake looks so festive!

  6. This sounds like a great tradition. Your little cupid is darling, but he doesn't look thrilled to be cast in that role. Maybe he just wanted to get at the cake.

  7. It looks like a lot of fun was had by all. Happy 1st Birthday to your little cupid. His dinosaur cake is so cute. Did you make it?

  8. I love all your creative cakes!! Looks like another fun tradition is afoot!

  9. Did you make that cake? It's the perfect cake for a little boy!

  10. That's funny...we've hardly ever celebrated Halloween..when the kids were smaller we used to dress up and drive around the neighbor hood and then invite everyone over and shoot illegal fire works into the air...
    Would you like to wear Miss Dino's outfit next year..One size fits all, then you can surprise your group.

  11. what a terrific cake! AND what a cute cupid

  12. yes Marg! She would like to borrow the costume!
