Throwback Thursday- Halloween LO edition

Let’s take a trip in the Way Back machine and revisit some of my old Halloween and Fall pages! Doesn’t that sound fun? (And also embarrassing?) Keep in mind, I made some of these five years ago*. So be gentle in your mocking, okay?

Foods of Fall No falling leaves here corn maze

Living in SoFlo, I really miss having real seasons (other than Hurricane Season and the rest of the year). But there are definitely advantages to living here, like strawberries and tomatoes in November.

Jen Meets the Devil

One of my favorite Halloween pages ever!

I used to make Graveyard Cake a lot before I got married. Jason and I made it together that year. We looked so young!

Playing in the hay

Speaking of young, check out teeny C! This was the one and only year that we got him on Halloween, so I’ve made like five pages from that night. (He was a storm trooper, in case you can’t tell from the bad Palm Treo pictures.

Zombie Toes

Two of my favorite things, zombies + toes.

Halloween 2010

Best Halloween ever. I need to make an accompanying page for that story…

Halloween 2011

Worst Halloween ever. Well worst since I’ve been married. The worst was in 1997 when I stepped on a nail and had to get a tetanus shot.

And finally, a page I made last week talking about Halloween 2013.

Journaling reads- After someone stole my plants from the front porch, I decided not to decorate for Halloween outside. But at the last minute I changed my mind and decorated the balcony. I decorated, then set out drinks as a surprise for Jason when he got home.

Random weekend stuffs

Pretty nice weekend. Nothing too exciting or earth shattering, which is a relief. It was my first weekend out completely sans crutches! I’m a bit unsteady still and I have absolutely no stamina whatsoever. We’re going to take walks in the evenings this week to hopefully build that up.

I got some good mail from Megan at the A journal for December Daily! I’m pretty excited to start, but I guess we need to get through Halloween first.

Speaking of Halloween, the decorations are continuing to go up. And I’m working on a pretty awesome Halloween box for the Little Man. I’ll do a post on that once I’m finished.

Jason is loving his stereo. It’s making the long commute a lot more bearable. He can play things directly from the iPhone through bluetooth now. He still likes the roadster, but unfortunately the radio stations fade in and out a lot between home and work so it was becoming a hassle.

The Little Man is now in student council! He didn’t talk a whole lot about it, because there were more exciting video games to discuss. But we think it’s pretty cool.

MK is being a pain in the butt, waking us up too early, scratching at the blinds and making a lot of unnecessary noise. Not sure whats up with her.

Oh and also in news that is only important to us, Jason installed my brand new super awesome antimicrobial magic toilet seat this weekend. It’s magical because it’s “anti-slam”, which means instead of slamming closed like a regular toilet seat, when you drop the lid, it slowly and gently floats down into place without making a sound. Like the feather in Forrest Gump. 🙂

We’re making plans for the holidays, which will involve NASA, so I’m super excited for that. I miss my space shuttles!

I think that’s about it. I’m so ready to get back into my normal routine of cooking and house stuff and being a bit more active. Lot’s of fun stuff coming up in the next couple of months.
