Halloween Spirit

I'm trying to get into the Halloween spirit. For some reason this year I'm kind of just not feeling it. Normally Halloween is my favorite holiday, but I can't seem to get as excited as I normally am for Halloween. I mean, Halloween is Sunday and I still don't even have a costume. I wore my awesome halloween shirt that has a ghost on it to a party and called it good. that's sad, coming from the girl who painted herself green one year to be Elphaba from wicked.

Where is that girl now? Costumeless since Hal said he didn't want to do arrested development. Boo on him. Do you guys have any good last minute costume ideas? Maybe I'll frizz up my hair and be Hermione. I have a striped scarf...I don't have a robe. maybe I could do their sweater and white shirt with a tie look or something. Any better ideas than that?

I've been trying to get myself into the Halloween spirit. I decorated my dad's house. And it even finally turned fall...and possibly a little bit of winter. Utah is so funny, we went from 70 and sunny to 30 and snow in like 2 days. I love all of the wet leaves on the ground though, and that I got to wear my rain boots. Boo yeah!  And we also went to a farm and picked out pumpkins and carved them. I wasn't too inventive with my pumpkin
Hal always does crazy things with his pumpkins. I'm kind of bummed that I lost of the picture of his pumpkin from last year because it was so crazy. I have it on my old phone and thought I uploaded it when I switched to my new phones, but I can't seem to find it. Here is his pumpkin from this year.
Hopefully the snow helped preserve them until Sunday. I need to go get my one new Halloween decoration. Every year I get one new Halloween decoration. it's a tradition my mom started with me, and I've tried to continue it.
Hopefully you're already in the Halloween mood, if not, here's an awesome commercial to help get you there.

Hey! I'm gonna be Hermione for Halloween. Cody- Ron. Joseph-harry. We're just wearing old graduation gowns maybe with a homemade Hogwarts symbol on it.

Love your pumpkins. :) And hope you find something fun to go this Sunday. Oh, I have an idea...how about Hello Kitty?! Ok, no. That's silly. ;) I have absolutely no idea. Sorry. :(

You totally pulled off Elphaba! I love it when people go all out with their costumes like that. Isn't that the point? Instead of throwing on a red with black polka dots bra and skirt and calling yourself a ladybug.
