Memory #11

Halloween Parties
Halloween has always been a big event in my family.  We probably had as many Halloween decorations at our house as we did Christmas decorations. Not probably. DEFINITELY. The Halloween parties that we have had over the years are some of my favorite parties ever.  We love to go all out.

Here are some pictures from some of our Halloween events throughout my twenties.

This party was at our apartment my senior year of college.  Nick came to the party, but I had not really gotten to know him yet.  That happened a few months later.
The Space Girls...tin foil shoes and all
(a knock off of the Spice Girls....get it?)
We all had a special name, but I only remember that mine was Diva Space.

Then there was our party in 2003, which took place at my parent's house.  We sent out this little poem in an email invitation:

I do not know what happened in 2004, but it seems that we did not have a party.  I have searched and searched, but no pictures from that Halloween are appearing.  So, onto...

This party was not my best costume year (though, I think it may have been Kristina's best), but we did come up with a fabulous little poem for the invitation to this party.
We must have been boring again in 2006 and 2007, because I cannot find any pictures for those years either.  So, onto...

Mr. and Mrs. Corn
Candy Corn and Pop Corn
Probably my most creative costume ever.

First party at our new house

This year was Halloween bowling instead of a party, because our house was in disarray.
We will have to see what we come up with for this year.
I am having a hard time coming up with 20 items for my wish list, but here is one more thing I would not mind adding to my jewelry holders.


  1. this is my favorite post. i miss halloween with the swensons :( But our invitation was for the party in 2003... when your house became the swenson/hawk house! and i have been racking my brain trying to figure out what the heck happened in 2004?!? in our buena park apt... hmmm.

    im thinking i should make it this year! i love you

  2. Love all these pictures! This is my favorite post too! And I have to agree that Mr. and Mrs. Pop was very creative :)
