Hello, everyone! Since it is October I will post our past Halloween celebrations, every Monday. Over the years, a lot of photos have accumulated in my files. Last year I had “Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins”-Friday, where I introduced all the Jack-o-Lanterns I carved for the girls over the years. This year, it will be a little bit of everything. I will begin with 2003. This was the year, Katelynn was born and when she had her first Halloween.
This was Katelynn’s First Halloween. She was only 27 days old, when I carved the Kitty pumpkin for her. The story behind the pumpkin itself can be found here under this link: https://underthepecantreephotography.com/2017/09/22/pumpkins-pumpkins-pumpkins-part-i/
Katelynn’s First Jack-o-Lantern in 2003: ‘The Prowler’
Katelynn’s very first Halloween
Katelynn was at the Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch for the first time. Oh, she had so much fun playing with the straw. Kevin and I had to fish it out of her clothes later, Because she was so busy throwing the straw in the air, it went everywhere. The next day, we dressed her up as a lamb. I made the costume myself. The head was a bit big for her. But she enjoyed going to Trick-or-Treat with it.

The pumpkins are almost bigger than her. 😀

Katelynn had so much fun playing with the straw …
… when we came home later that day, we fished it out of her clothes, diaper, behind her ears, etc

It was the first year, we celebrated Halloween at our new house. I made a DIY-Diddlina candy bag for all the goodies, we would receive from going to Trick-or-Treat. On the other hand, Katelynn was still little and a bit unsure, if she really liked this whole “Trick-or-Treat” thing. When we walked from door to door, she wasn’t very happy. Once she had some candy, it wasn’t near as bad anymore. But she did not like the door-to-door walk at all. A year later, this would be a whole other story. …
Autumn is so beautiful!
Katelynn is not so sure, if she likes this whole Halloween hustle and bustle
Katelynn likes her new Pumpkin.
The Autumn leaves are more interesting.

… This Halloween season was completely different from last year’s. Katelynn was excited to go to “Trick-or-Treat”. She knocked on the doors with a happy “T’ick-or-T’eeeeat”. Since she couldn’t pronounce the “r”, the neighbors thought she was adorable and gave her a lot of candy. After three houses we had to walk home to empty the bag, before we could go out there and get more candy. Oh my, so much candy and no melt downs anymore. 😉
Katelynn’s Pumpkin 2006
In 2006 Katelynn started to love Halloween. She was so cute, when she knocked on the doors all by herself, and said: “Tick-o-Teeeaat”. 😀
In 2007, Kevin had to go with Katelynn to Trick-or-Treat. I was still recovering from a knee injury and rather stayed at home. It was fun. Katelynn was dressed in her “Snow White” costume and received plenty of candy, while the neighbors and I were busy giving out candy. But I have to admit, I missed the door-to-door walk that year.
