Halloween

October means cake. We celebrated the cake part joining Shelbie and Laurie's birthdays. The cake turned out so cute. Lehi Bakery, again.
The pic of Halloween past in homemade costumes. This was 15 years ago in a rental home while we were building our existing house. I was still pregnant with Mason. It is funny now to look at this picture and pick out personalities as they are now older/adults and connect to the kids they were. Tracey (back row far left) was sick that Halloween. She had strep. You can see how sick she was. Poor kid, what a horrible time to be sick. Next to her is Whitney (Tracey's twin) the new mom. Whitney was a cat. What else?, she still loves kitties. Shelbie is next to Whitney and it was Shelbie's birthday. She has her zombie beauty queen with sash and blood make-up. She and Whitney are striking a pose. Next to them is Mr. Hive. A man of much patience. Front row in the Barney suit is Jamie. She loved that costume and loved Barney. I think Jamie wore that Barney suit nearly everyday until it gave her the "thong" effect. Next is Laurie. I belive she was a witch. But of course a witch sporting a pacifier, so a sweet little witch. Both Jamie and Laurie rocked the pacifier well into their 4-5th years. Oh well, they don't have one now so what does it matter? Right? And then next to her is Chelsey. Of course, Chelsey the princess! She's playing for the camera in her crown and lovely lilac dress. I don't know why Natalie isn't in this picture. Oh, those were the days.
Baby Allison came yesterday with her mom to spend the day with us. You can see from her little chin she's growing and doing well. It was a fun day.

Hope you are having a good Halloween. Bring on the trick-or-treaters!

Great cake and fun pic of the kids! I bet you can't wait till baby Allison is ready for trick or treating!

Carrie P. said...

Neat cake! and look at those cheeks on that little baby. You just want to squeeze and kiss them.

Darlene said...

Love the cake but I'm crazy about Baby Allison - she's adorable!

Jackie said...

Just love looking at pictures like that. I have many of them and it makes my heart swell with love when I bring them out. Enjoy your Halloween. Trick or treaters have begun arriving here already! Yay, I love them!

Jackie said...

I meant to also tell you, I just love that picture of Allison. She looks so sweet and alert!! She will change quickly.

Vicki said...

What a sweet, chubby baby!

I love all the memories. If I had 5 spare minutes and my scanner-connected computer wasn't busted, I would go scan some old Halloween photos to share.

Deb said...

Lovely cake Nanette but I'm with the others, baby Alison is sooo cute, as Carrie said you do just want to grab those little cheeks. How on earth is that ribbon staying on her head/hair?

A cool cake and Nanette, what a nice trip down memory lane. Your smooth flow of words captured my attention. I really enjoyed this! It was interesting for me to read along and notice where Mr. Hive was really being patient. That was a lot of family for a Dad. hee! Blessed are the Family of Hives. :)

Pat said...

Oh, MY....what a CUTE photo of Allison. She looks older (and more alert)...would never know she's not even a week old yet. Loved the "old" photo, too!

Congratulations on the arrival of little Allison. You will make a great "Nanny"! Love the quilt for Ashley's baby. It just looks soft and comfy. Haven't had time to read blogs lately but have caught up on the last week's worth of your posts. You are so productive! Amazing!!
