Halloween Came Early This Year

Cedar Springs’ Halloween street party was this past weekend, and friends Jeremy and Tician came down from OKC to join the party.  A great time was had by all, even though Ticia lost her cell phone and her ID.

Since all my friends that are waiting with bated breath can now see the photos.  See the Street Party pics here, and friend pics here.

Ah… Cool, Cool Halloween

Last year for Halloween we sat on our front porch sipping wine while the neighborhood parents strolled by with their kids.  One of the advantages of living in Dallas is the weather in October.  However, with temperatures in the 100’s here in Texas for what seems like years, I’ve forgotten how nice the winters are here.

Luckily, I found Matthew Kirscht’s art that’s inspired by vintage holiday imagery.   I love this style, and makes me feel like a kid again (in cooler weather).

Halloween on Cedar Springs

Halloween is one of the biggest parties of the year on Cedar Springs in Dallas. We’ve been the last thee years, but haven’t dressed up. The last two years, I kept thinking I should bring my camera and get some shots of all the amazing costumes.
So this year I decided to take my “good camera”, and even decided to dress up like a 40’s journalist to help complete the package. Rich wasn’t sure what to be, and we saw this shower cap with wolf’s ears and the idea of the Big Bad Wolf dressed as Granny grew from that. We ended up at Wal-Mart shopping for a night gown and fuzzy pink slippers. He was pretty comfortable all night, since he got to wear a nightgown and house coat out.
The weather was perfect, though and we met some friends out and had a great time. We even ran into our long lost friends, Bob & Gabe, who we haven’t seen in months.
You can view the entire set here.
