Halloween 2005

I love Halloween. It was always fun as a kid, but that is nothing compared to the fun that I’ve had with Hannah’s second Halloween. Our little Tigger was too young last year to really get it. She is old enough now that she is starting to understand it a bit. I’m sure she doesn’t have the faintest idea why pumpkins have become so prevalent in our décor, but she sure seemed to enjoy carving, painting, kissing, and hugging the orange gourds. She would kiss her Jack-o’-lantern every night until it got so squishy and funky that Jack had to move outside for the last few days of October.

I have not been doing a very good job of updating PlanetTabor on a regular basis, but that does not mean that Rebecca and I have been ignoring the camera. We snapped more than 5 gigs of photos during the past couple of months. Here are a few of the best:

Jack and Jill: A photographic history of the life of a Jack-o’-lantern. This set also includes shots of Hannah painting a second pumpkin, and an impromptu dance celebrating her new hat.

Pasta; or Why You Don’t See Many Toddlers Eating Spaghetti. A collection of messy dinner-time photos that only a grandparent could love.

Strollers: Not Just for Strolling Anymore. Hannah is ready and willing to climb anything that can’t move quickly out of her way. These shots show her scaling a stroller, but they could have easily been photos of her climbing a coffee table or slow-moving dog.

Halloween 2005: A Day in the Life of a Trick-or-Treater. Hannah’s second Halloween included costume changes, moving set pieces, and several exotic locations. It was a full day, but she seemed to enjoy it as much as we did. :-)
