I thought it would be fun if we shared any Halloween or autumn pictures from our past :) So dig out those boxes and old photo albums and let's take a trip down memory lane together :D


This one is just me playing in the leaves


These next 4 pix are from my 2nd birthday. Mom always did a Halloween themed party :)

It's easy to see where you get your knack for decorating! And I love looking at old pics from Halloweens past!
How did your mom decorate the chandelier with those ghosts?

MissMandy - You Mom's decorating abilities are superb ! How cool it is you shared these pics . So neat to see the older decorations and themes.

Hollow - It took me forever to find you - I was looking for "Barney purple" ;)

Sadly I have no pictures too add - just a comment . :)

She just tied a piece of fabric around each of the lights and drew faces :)

What a sweet little princess you were, hollow!

Glad y'all are enjoying this :) Can't wait to see more pix :D

I think I posted these before in a similar thread but they are just too fun not to repost! BTW love this thread!

Probably dressing up before Halloween:


Visiting my Grandpa on Halloween (his birthday!). I am the youngest one. I have NO idea what costume it is supposed to be. If you have a guess, let me know!


The Halloween that started it all. Our first haunt! My Dad made the cardboard tombstones and we painted the epitaphs!

I KNOW! Why did they stop? Why! It was too too fun. It was like the best day evah!

I feel sad for today's kids. No halloween parades, no homemade hobo or gypsy or clown costumes. No cutting out yellow triangles for pumpkin eyes and fixing them with paste from a jar...no teacher with a witch hat on reading a mildly spooky story in a darkened classroom.

The good old days! :)

Our schools still do them! Sorry to hear yours stopped. Every year I volunteer to help with my daughter's school party and I get to walk in the parade with them!:D
That is so great, worstwitch! We have had the kids in elementary schools in a few different states- NC, MO, NM- and halloween is forbidden in all those schools, sadly.

It's not so far past, but it's the best that I can do. No photos exist of me on Halloween from when I was little. My sister has some awesome black and white photos of her as a child, dressed as Casper the Ghost. :) I think my mom quit taking pictures of us when I insisted on a new Ben Cooper Snoopy costume for three years in a row. (I wore it out each year, because I didn't just wear it on Halloween!)

This is me with my two older sons in 2003. I made the "club" for my youngest out of a big piece of paper-bag type packing material. You can't see it very well in the picture, but I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with the idea, haha. He's dressed as Bamm-Bamm Rubble.

I made a thread like this back in July, but nobody seemed to want to post their own pics! Oh well.

Here are some of mine:

Agreed! Man, your post just took me back to grade school...over 40 years ago! Thank you for that trip...I nearly got tears in my eyes thinking about it.
