Halloween, for those of you who aren’t in the know, is absolutely Aurora’s favourite holiday. Don’t be surprised if she’s wearing a pumpkin, bat, witch, or skeleton shirt when you see her next March or April. It’s better than Christmas, and somewhat mixed up with her birthday, which falls earlier in October. A holiday that combines dress-up and seemingly limitless supplies of candy is a true winner in her book. Daddy and I get into it pretty good, too. Here’s a highlights reel of photos.
For the past three years, I’ve really enjoyed going to the Pumpkin Patch in Richmond, partly because the photos usually turn out gorgeous, even at mid-day. We go with our good friends, the MossLams, so even if the lines are long, we still have fun.
Fraser’s a good sport, especially because he gets the comfort of mom & the Ergo the whole time.
Barrett shows me which pumpkin he picked out from this gigantic field.
I love this picture. It almost makes up for the loss of last year’s shots.
Ready to head home, eh?
Halloween fell on a school day this year, so the 4’s voted to wear their costumes to school.
The Princess and the Pirate Wait for the Bus. Sounds like a hit song or something.
This year we hosted another Halloween potluck, and somehow managed to make cake pops in five hours.
Ghosts, skulls, and a lone Jason mask. Daddy dressed as Chris Kratt in his Creature Power Suit.
Aurora the Ghost Pirate attempts to tuck her sword into her red sash.
Barrett preferred his elephant mask (made by his very clever Daddy out of some leftover roofing material) to hang down his back, where it was less in the way.

Happy Halloween, from two pirates and a witch!
