Halloween plans?

Happy Halloween!!
I'm not doing much this year; the fiancé has tons of homework so we're not going out, but I'm going to a little fireplace-movie-candy distributing evening at my parents' house during trick-or-treating time.  This year, the holiday just sneaked up on me!  I've been so busy all month, with things to do every weekend, I haven't thought about Halloween much at all!  Although I have seen some cute crafts around the blogs.
Here are some pics I took a while ago of a fave pumpkin patch near my parents' house outside Portland:

What are you and your family doing this year for Halloween?


  1. Me and my IzzyBot will be trick or treating in her super new Pink Robot costume.

  2. We had a pumpkin carving contest, I carved my first pumpkin (I'm French so not too big on the whole Halloween thing) and we watched the original Dracula movie with Bela Lugosi. We live on the second floor of a block of flats so didn't get any trick or treaters- we kept the candy to ourselves and enjoyed a toffee apple yum!

  3. I LOVE love LOVE your first picture! Definitely makes me think of magical autumns! I stayed home and watched Witches while the hubs was out of town.

  4. First time in a while that I've been in the US instead of at home for Hallowe'en, so I didn't have the traditional costume party but went trick or treating with a friend and her two year old son. I had to improvise my costume, but I think I made a decent Vampiress... ;)
