Ghosts (and Goblins) of Halloweens Past

There are a few things about this time of year that make me miss Missouri and the activities we always did there. I really miss the fall colors and I miss the hayrides, hot dog and marshmallow roasts, ghost stories around the campfire and volleyball behind the church with relatives, neighbors and friends!

There are also usually lots of mushrooms to be found. Believe it or not, these are edible mushrooms! I don't know which is my favorite: walking in the woods with Mom to find them....or eating them!!! Just pick them, wash them, roll them in flour and saute in butter. Yum!

As I continue to sort through old pictures in boxes, I keep finding Halloween pictures and I've been saving most for this post. Some I almost didn't upload for the world to see, but thought again of the laugh they could bring. Enjoy!

I have no idea when this picture was taken, but I dressed up as a bride for Halloween that year.

Another photo from an unknown year. From the left: I'm a queen, Davy's got to be the ugliest woman I ever saw and Regina is the scariest snowman ever!!!!

(When Marty saw this picture I was posting, he said, "are you sure that isn't Lacey?"

Yep! I'm sure. It's ME!!!

It's funny how many childhood pictures of Lacey, Heather, and me are hard to tell who's who!)

Here is Heather when she was in third grade as a ballerina with her best friend Cailtyn. (Imaginative that year, weren't we?)

Another old one. Regina's a witch, I think I'm a queen again, and Davy's a hobo. (Hey family members....does Davy remind anyone of Randy Croney in this photo????)

I uncovered this photo of my friend Suzanne's daughter Briana the year she dressed as a hobo.

I used to work for a company that colored comic books. Every year many of us in the company dressed up for Halloween, most of us as comic characters. Here I am the year I went as Huntress. I don't have a photo of the time I dressed up as Cat Woman. I wish I had photos of Craig as Batman, Greg as Robin, and Lana as the Joker! They were awesome!!!

These were my co-workers Cathy (devil) and Janet (archangel).

I also uncovered this adorable picture of my nephew Brandon as a mouse.
