Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Happy Halloween

This is the first time that neither John or I have accompanied the boys (or this year, the boy) out for trick-or-treating. Boy, does that feel weird. On top of that, we have two teenagers who are more than happy to shell out for us ... that may have more to do with the fact that they get to eat from the treat bowl when they are shelling out.

It seems like just yesterday when I would make the boys' costumes and take them around. Those days are now long gone.

I told Barb that I would post my pictures from a Halloween 11 years ago. We were living in Barbados at the time. Halloween wasn't celebrated there, but the Canadians would get together to have a halloween party for the kids. My boys were into Star Wars in a big way. Matt wanted to be Darth Vader and Spencer wanted to be Luke Skywalker. Cameron got to be an ewok (since he was only a year old!) There were no store-bought costumes there so, we had to make them.


  1. Great costumes and pictures!

  2. LOL. Adorable, especially the "light saver"! :)

    oh my goodness, how CUTE are they? You are a superMom, making those awesome costumes like that. I made a costume. Once. I stayed up until some ungodly hour sewing it, and I swore I'd never do it again. lol

    Anyway, thanks for sharing... and for putting a smile on my face. :D

  4. They are too cute! I love the costumes that you made them. :) What great souvenirs!

  5. I haven't been to your blog for a long time but it is always a pleasure to take a peak into your life. These costumes are just so awesome and that little ewok - what a sweetie! I used to make my boys their costumes at one time in the long ago past - it was such a great feeling to see them dressed in them.
