This is a revised version of my earlier post. The pictures came out clear this time and I don't know why they were so blurry before. If you saw my post before don't feel that you have to leave a comment again.

James and mama chilling out

Only a good dad would dress like a big bear and take a lion cub trick or treating.

If you got ghost around your place, don't worry and  call Ghost Busters.

  10. such sweetness and light!
    thanks for sharing the love:)

  11. James has a great dad.....he is a winner! I love to see parents getting involved with their kids. That little James is a darling. I just loved seeing all of the pictures and I think it is great that they celebrated Halloween with costumes and had such fun. That HUGE pumpkin was truly something to see. I was happy to see the picture of your daughter too. What a happy family!!

    We really didn't celebrate Halloween at all this year. I made chili verde and took it over to my girl friend's house. Her husband was in rehab recovering from a hip replacement. I didn't want for her to be home alone on Halloween. There were no children in her neighborhood so we missed out on all of that this year. Next year we will have to stay at home and put up a few decorations at least.

  12. Yes, good parents.. I love it!

    Blessings, Debbie
