02 Nov when dreams take wing

I was never really a big fan of Halloween until I had kids. That’s kind of how it goes when you have kids. Everything changes and you find yourself with a whole new perspective; seeing the world and all it wonders though new eyes. Now, the dressing up, gathering treats and staying out late is fun for me.
What never gets old is the pretending. To watch my girls transform themselves into whatever or whoever they want to be for the evening is magic made tangible. I hope they never tire of playful reinvention; of wings and pixie dust.
Please share what transpired on your Halloween! I can’t wait to see!

Love this picture! So glad you had a nice Halloween. Unfortunately, I’m still not that into it and being as sick as I was last week didn’t help this year. I even forgot to pull out the Halloween decorations until Saturday. At least we carved the pumpkins this year. I was hoping to make it to one of your small business events, but I’m still on the mend and behind. Bummer.
Anyway, here is our Halloween. It was perfect for a four-year-old and that’s really all that counts, isn’t it?
take care – happy Monday!

Halloween is so fun seen through the eyes of my kids too! This year we did something a little different and the kids loved it!
I’m happy it’s November and I’m looking for a bit of Peace
Have a wonderful week and that shot of your daughter is gorgeous! I love that my big girl isn’t too "old" to dress up, glad to see your’s isn’t as well!

Does it count if it’s a picture of me instead my children? This year I enjoyed Halloween for the first time in years, and enjoyed pretending even as an adult. "What never gets old is the pretending. To watch my girls transform themselves into whatever or whoever they want to be for the evening is magic made tangible. I hope they never tire of playful reinvention; of wings and pixie dust."
I hope I never tire of it either!

I love how having kids changes everything – for the better!
Since we’re talking Halloween, I’ll have to share a picture from Saturday.

I love the light in this Tracey. Such beautiful wings. Pretend is the purest part of childhood.
Halloween was all about super hero escapades for my boy and his cousin.

Beautiful & magical! I could barely get the kids to stand still, but I did manage to get some shots.

It was a magical night … something I wouldn’t have missed for the world!
My best shots were a tad blurry because, well, just so much excitement and no time to linger for photos! I am loving everyone’s shots!

I am in complete agreement about enjoying Hallowe’en more since I had kids. We had our party early (because mummy and daddy had scored themselves a night out for a meal and comedy with proper grown up friends!) and it was a blast, if rather tiring for the one parent who was home that night!

Happy Halloween, for sure! It is a real kick to see the holiday through my kids eyes :). Love the fairy flare you’ve got going on here!
