We decorate outside, and even did a little decorating inside this year. The girls dress up and go trick or treating. There are events downtown too, but we're usually too worn out to go.

This sort of thing is very important. Consider photos taken as ammunition of embarrassment for when the lad brings home his first girl friend. :lol:

Somehow makes me think of Anne Geddes pictures. A quick google search, however, made clear that reality can be more horrifying than imagination.
Anyway, I don't think infant pictures can be a really good source of embarrassment. Things you did after turning 3 years old are much better.

Pictures. We need pictures of Harry Pumpkin!!

As mentioned earlier, Tucson, Arizona celebrates in a big way around this time. Actually, it's the day after - All Souls Day and they call it The Day of the Dead. Sharlene asked me to post this video of the parade in Tucson.



It is believed that the event has its origins (in Mexico) with the Aztecs. :)
