...ok, THIS is the last one!



(=the last Halloween post this year)

So, the Halloween weekend is over and most things
are back to normal. How are you guys feeling?
How was your Halloween? Are you still hung-over? :)




My weekend was insane and wonderful.
Friday I had organized 'Trick-or-Treating' in town
with some 20 of our little shops and cafés participating.
We had visits from over 200 dressed up kids (and their parents)
and it seems like everyone had a really great time!



Pumpkin pictures from around town, while we were carving and on our patio.


 Saturday I was a complete wreck but I still somehow
managed to clean the house together with Cinnamon man.
Sunday I basically just woke up and started cooking.
My family arrived at 2 pm, all dressed up for Halloween :)

We carved pumpkins, had a candy hunt for the girls,
ate lots of food and had a really nice time.
My two eldest nieces (9 and 7) said that Halloween had become
their favorite holiday, and that our house was like something
from Alice in Wonderland - it made me so happy and proud!

Today I'm eating leftover pumpkin cupcakes
and catching up in the blog world (so I'll come by real soon!).
Luckily I have two days off just to rest up and digest everything.
Today I slept until noon :)

    1. Thank you, I got it at wholesale price - otherwise I would never have bought it :)

  4. I love your costume, it's beautiful! Your house does look like something from Alice in Wonderland! you're so creative and it's really awesome that you organized Halloween for your town. Not many people would do that. Enjoy your next couple of day off and enjoy a little bit of that time off for me as well. I had to get back to the homework grind.

    1. As long as I still enjoy it, there isn't too much money involved and I can do most of the organizing via email, I'll keep on Halloween trucking :)

    1. It's actually finally picking up over here, and I've heard of quite a few neighborhoods doing it this year :)

  8. Sounds like you had an amazing Halloween! Ours was good even though we didn't do anything this year. It left me feeling a little restless since I usually at least take my sister around and do some spooky makeup but since we moved and had nothing going on we spent the day relaxing and then caught a hockey game. I already feel like I am stuck in the Nightmare Before Christmas movie counting down the days til next Halloween!

    1. Oh, I'm sorry you didn't get your Halloween groove on this year! I don't think I could do just nothing for Halloween, I'd be completely depressed.

  9. Sounds like a wonderful time was had by all :)

    1. It's so funny, so many people asked me if that was my real hair - I guess I looked very comfortable in purple hair :) And quite a few are suggesting I change it to purple for real!

      Radera
  12. You two looked amazing, even though I can't see your faces hehe. The costumes are awesome, loving the purple hair! Perhaps you should consider making it a permanent change :P

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. Thank you! You are not the first to suggest it - actually, my mom said maybe I should consider wearing it in my every day life :)

      Radera
  13. Sounds like you had a great Halloween! It goes by so fast. I'm so busy trying to enjoy every minute of the season that I think it goes by even faster. Love your costumes!

  14. I'm glad you had such a wonderful Halloween. You guys look awesome! I love the wig :)

    Mine didn't quite go as planned, but I enjoyed it, all the same.

    1. I love it too :)

      I'm sorry things didn't work out as you'd wished, and I hope you got to do something suitably spooky and tasty anyway!

  15. My Halloween was rather quiet. I was a tad ill (and my doctor promised bodily harm if I left the house, so I figured I should stay).

    You look wonderful in all your purple yumminess. I'm so happy you've brought Halloween to your town, and have been able to enjoy it!

    1. You have such an interesting relationship with your doctor :)

      My latest doctor (in a row of 6 or 7 over the last 2 years) has forgotten me twice now, once for a phone appointment and once for a check-up... I've ended up getting tons of meds prescribed in a rush over the phone.

  16. Sounds like you made Halloween a pretty awesome time for a whole lot of people! Congrats!

  17. Hahh, your costumes are cute, I love your wig! ^^
    Congrats on organizing Trick-or-Treating, it sounds like it was a success! It's pretty cool, that you brought Halloween to your town. ^^

    1. Thank you very much, on both accounts!
      We decided to wear 'no effort' costumes this year :)

  18. Your post reads as though you've had the best Halloween! How fun! Nice work organizing Trick-or-Treating!

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. Yes, it was pretty great :) I'm totally exhausted still though, probably coming down with something now when all the pressure is gone...

      Radera
  19. A lovely Halloween costume you are wearing! I'm a bit envious of everyone who had a nice party, but then again, I went whale watching on Halloween which was also great. And next year I will party hard again!

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. Whale watching sounds amazing! It's on my bucket list.

      You know, despite all the fun we didn't get to see a proper Halloween party (=drinking with people the same age). We are always hoping a friend will organize one but they never do.

  20. Det låter som ni hade en fantastisk halloween :D vi hade många barn som ringde på här så jag var riktigt orolig att några skulle bli utan godis men det räckte.

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. Vad trevligt att det spridit sig så pass i Sverige!
      Vi får aldrig några barn på besök eftersom vi bor mitt ute på landet, så jag får nöja mig med butiken :)

  21. Great costumes! It's so wonderful that you organized a Halloween party for your whole town, the pumpkins they carved are fantastic. Glad everyone had a fun time!
    So sorry I'm late commenting, my internet has been out for days!

    Svar
    1. Thank you!
      I just said to my man; What is up with the internet in Canada? (Because everyone seems to be out). But then I realized you might not be Canadian at all..?

Lately I have been falling behind answering comments, for many reasons. But I read and cherish all of them! Your comments make my day, yay!
