Happy Halloween! I know it is officially over, but I have to write a post about my favorite Holiday! It still amazes me how you prepare for months all for one day. It sure is worth it though. I had a ball this past Halloween. For the first time ever, my costume was something scary. I went as a vampire. It was so much fun painting my face and adding blood with fangs. I also had my brother and sister over to celebrate with a mini Halloween party. We painted pumpkins, played pin the tail on the black cat, binged on "gross" food and devoured the delicious desserts. It was a fun time which I always wish would have lasted longer. Holidays go too fast!
Now that Halloween is over, it is time to change gears and get in the mood for Thanksgiving. Before I know it, it will be here. The Christmas trees are up in stores and already advertising on TV and the radio. Still too soon for me. For now, I am still enjoying the fun time I had on Halloween, my favorite Holiday! I posted a collection of pictures from my costume to the decorations and pumpkin carving. Halloween 2012 was one to remember!

The skulls and candles lite up, which was very eerie at night
A pumpkin trail
Scary "Beware" sign with bloody cheesecloth
Eek, I spy mice in the house!
My vampire costume
I had a lot of fun putting this costume together, the only thing I paid for was the makeup kit for $3.00
My sister the pirate
My kitty was a pumpkin! His hat only lasted about .5 seconds before he took it off
The Great Pumpkin!
The white pumpkin I painted
All of the painted pumpkins
My Jack Skellington pumpkin template for carving
I cut out the template and traced it onto my pumpkin
The most time consuming part was the tracing, carving was a breeze!
Cannot wait to make pumpkin seeds
