The Home of Daddy's Day Dare! ~ I am just trying to stay above water

Halloween 2018

I know, I know… Halloween was so last month.

I am sorry.

I was either out of town mentally or physically these last few weeks but I did want to try to squeeze in a Halloween post for friends and family before I get a holiday behind…ahhh….

I mean, get behind one holiday post when another  holiday comes.

I am such a procrastinator.

Anyway, here are fun, happy, sweet pictures of my two little delicate flowers…


How embarrassing.

They seem to be beating up my Halloween decorations.

At first they were both going to be Greek Goddesses. You know how I like a Greek Goddess. But after wearing her’s for 3 days in a row, Dylan decided to make her own outfit by combining a Super Girl top with a Wonder Woman bottom.

Skye, and her goddess self (she is Greek after all), stayed home this year to hand out candy with mom while lil D and I hit the pavements in search of some treats.

Again the neighborhood did not disappoint as far as the decorations.

These people really go all out!

When I was little all we put out was a jack-o-lantern with a candle inside…that never seemed to make it through the night

This house, D and I both thought the Lord of the Rings looking guy was part of the decorations. But the stolic relic moved!
And handed out some candy..


And as the sun began to set, the neighborhood began to come alive with lights and tricks and treats…


One of my fav houses actually had a sign out front “Trick Or Drinks” in which they had a picnic table set up with cold local microbrews..

It was a popular house with the adults!

So since it was at the end of our walk,

…and we were headed home soon I thought I might try a Lowcountry Lager,

prostate be damned! (cool Halloween pun)

I did not go all out decorating at our house this year.


Come on!?

Its football season! My weekends are tied up!

But I did get lots of rav-reviews for one decoration, my fountain of blood.

mawah ha-ha-ha-ha (scary laugh)

So you wanted to know what I was dressed up as?

I know what you are thinking….

This year I dressed up as a parent

…and a 3-headed monster…

mawah ha-ha-ha-ha

No really cool videos this year, but I did reminisce  about one from years gone by as our little D went door to door. And then at the end of the video the little 3 year old divides up her candy booty and organizes it.

She separates it for a special surprise celebration….her marriage.

If you can stomach family videos the end is too cute! But I have to say that.

The video actually starts out at a Halloween 5K I was in, then moves over to our local Texas Roadhouse where the manager had a fondness for our girls ( I do not mean that in a creepy way)

Trick or Treat everyone!

I hope yours was scary and sweet.

That is all for now. I will try to do a better job next month when we highlight our Thanksgiving..

Enjoy your holiday!

  1. Blogs evolve. Yours will. Possibly, yours is a scrapbook, a journal or a diary of sorts that records the beauty, joy, love, evolving and growing of your daughters….. and your life beyond.

  2. The memories are recorded in this blog and etched in my heart always. Its why I can’t close down this blog after so many years. I go back to posts 3-5 years back and reread things I forgot about. I need to turn the blog into a memory book. Thanks again Resa

  3. Well, I think there are places in your heart where you can store the memories from each year. I am well, and as long as I see these loving posts you make, I know you are, too!

  4. Thank you for your kind words Resa! I think they are adorable (still) I asked them to stay 4 yrs old, at their height of adorableness but they said they couldn’t, that they still had to grow more. I hope you are doing well Resa. Thanks for dropping by!

  5. So much fun!!! The girls are adorable.

  6. Hi Betsy! Thank you! I have wanted to get them both on my shoulders for awhile., We always try it in the pool.The day of the pic Skye decided to try it a different Best and not on top of D’s shoulders. Best wishes for a blessed Thanksgiving too! Lots to be thankful for!

  7. The girls are getting big! Impressive you can carry them both. Happy belated Halloween and early Thanksgiving.

  8. Wow! I bet you had fun…. Wishing for those Summer Nights. Well done!

  9. Hey Andy….I was Sandy from Grease. I rocked a T-Birds jacket and all.

  10. Kudos to you Sandy!. Glad you had a good time. What custome did you rock? I hope you are doing well Sandy and getting ready for some fun with the oncoming holiday. Thanks for dropping by!

  11. Looks like everyone had fun! I went out trick or treating too…well, technically, I took my nephews out – but Aunt Sandy loves Halloween and totally rocked a costume with the two monkeys.

I would love to hear from you...
