Halloween is my favorite holiday. I made a special ring tone for it so my phone is appropriately spooky. Sadly, either I or Nathan usually have to work or be out of town or something tragic on Halloween. There was the truly amazing Halloween of 07 when Nathan & I came up with the most epic costumes ever!
Halloween 08 had kind of a slow start, but things eventually picked up. Knoxville Halloweens have always been more fabulous kid-wise than Atlanta, but they seem to be slowing down as people start taking their kids to trick-or-treat at the mall or to Trunk-or-Treats. Sigh.
Then there was Halloween 09 when Nathan & I holed ourselves up in the cave of his office for September and October and created our Zombi movie which had its first viewing on the Saturday before Halloween. We were so fried from the ordeal, we totally grinched Halloween (we had no money due to spending it on the movie and no time to buy candy due to spending it on the movie) and hid in the basement with all the lights on while children pounded on our doors demanding high fructose corn syrup. That may have been a low point in my Halloweening. Worse even than driving from Savannah to Atlanta on Halloween so I could be at a job the next day. Sigh. But we Zombied it up the day before!
Halloween 10 we were in St. Louis for an amazing wedding at Union Station in St. Louis. No costumes, but we had a blast! Anyway, I have rambled on for far too long. So to wrap things up, here are some photos of my Halloween costume from 2008. I went as Class of 96 and pretty much this entire ensemble is vintage “Claire in High School.” I’m a bit of a packrat. And there may be some photos of a party I went to in Maryville and my friend who invited me to said party and my dog.
