AE Lens | Halloween 2012

We love Halloween around here.

For the last few years my sister and her family have made the trek across the US to celebrate and get all dressed up and eat delicious chili and just be together.

This year Simon was Finn from Adventure Time.

Anna was Daphne from Scooby Doo and Gabrielle was Annie.

We love the Ackerman's.

I was Princess Bubble Gum from Adventure Time.

Banner on my photo is from this set: Halloween Outline Banners

Jeffrey was Daddy Warbucks and my sister was Miss Hannigan (from Annie).

The scary guy at the corner house was out there again.

He sits really still until someone gets close and then he moves. The kids talk about it over and over. Totally a fun tradition.

Super fun.

Katie was Tinkerbell.

I think all of our favorite part still continues to be sitting in my entry way opening the door for all the trick or treaters. My neighborhood is the best I've ever lived in for activity (seemed a little slower this year) and it's so fun to have kid after kid coming to the door. They seem to like when we are all dressed up too.

    I LOVE LOVE THESE PHOTOS AND COSTUMES!! How sweet the little girls looked, how big too! It is great that you adults dress up and have fun also, the kids will always remember that. We have a scary guy like that too, even my oldests still get a thrill from seeing him.
    Thanks for sharing Ali, I always love your Halloween post!

    Eugh, totally chucked it down on Halloween here. I'm jealous of all your trick-or-treaters.

    We ended up eating a LOT of left over chocolate.

    Every cloud has a silver lining :)

    I love it...we only had about 6 trick or treaters this year :-(

    Our neighborhood has 'grown' up and there's only MAYBE 3 families with younger children. I miss that. Our neighborhood used to be big on Halloween with smoke machines...popcorn poppers and active halloween decorations like what you mentioned. I miss it...

    Love the Princess Bubblegum costume. William was Finn last year. I wish I had thought of PB as an option (although I really had no time for anything else after making a Finntastic costume for W. Ah well. Looks like you had loads of fun.

    Isn't it funny how pink hair totally suits people! Why is it not a natural hair colour?! Looks like you and the kids had great fun!

    Wait, is that Jeffrey Gitomer? At first, I thought it just looked like him, then you said in the caption that his name was Jeffrey. I am a huge fan of his, and it's blowing my mind that my business celebrities and scrapbooking celebrities are smashed together in one post!

      Thanks for the reply, Ali! I knew of Her through Jeffrey's writings, but had no idea she was your sister. Amazing how small our world can be!

      It is - he and my sister are together (and have been for about 7 years).
