Hope your Halloween brought you a night full of fun and frights! Despite a last minute costume change (beyond my control), Halloween proved to be spook-takular  delight! Originally, I planned to rock a Whore-thy Dorothy costume, and in my excitement I hastily purchased ruby slippers and basket complete with Toto.
 So, instead of going as Dorothy I pulled this vintage ensemble from my closet.
In keeping with our yearly tradition, the boys and I rolled to Mimi's (my Mom) and distributed Halloween eats & treats to excited trick-or-treaters. This year we added a new addition to our Halloween tradition...our little cousin Spiderman!

After we handed out the last piece of candy we hit the streets to get some trick-or-treating done! My youngest decided to dress as JabbaWockee for Halloween. No, not the Jabbawokee from Alice in Wonderland. A JabbaWockee from the critically acclaimed dance crew. 
The video below highlights the JabbaWockees' last performance on the show America's Best Dance Crew.
In the entire neighborhood, only one teenage boy asked my son if he was a  JabbaWockee. Everyone else just gave him  a WTH look...guess they're not big dance fans!

I put together this photo montage to share some Halloween highlights. Make sure you check out the video of me screaming in the "haunted house" towards the end of the montage.

I hope you enjoyed the montage. 

As far as my candy consumption, I used my cheat sheet. I only ate 1 Snickers (2pts), and 1 Resees' Peanut Butter Cup (2 pts). I wanted to use my point for Gumbo my mom made, rather than candy. 

For next Halloween my boys and I decided to make it a family affair. We're gonna "EASE ON DOWN THE ROAD" as Dorothy, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow. mom will play the role of the Good Witch! So, GET STARTED on sewing those costumes MOM!


  1. Looks like a fun filled Halloween! Loved the montage :)

  2. Great costumes all around. I think Jabbawakees are still the EBST crew to step on the ABDC stage (Blu Print Crew is a second). Have a great week.

  3. I love that you counted the candy points but wanted to save points for gumbo! :) Good job- you looked so cute in your costume! :)

  4. this is an awesome post, love the pics/montage and next year's idea sounds great!
