Hi Lynne, looks like a fun family time. I made white chicken chili this weekend too. Your little lamb is adorable. Great photos. Happy Sunday!

Kim said...

What a wonderful Halloween Lynne! And white chili? Mmmm.

Deb said...

Aww- they are all so cute, Lynne. Looks like you had a great time. We have moved an hour away from our grands and were not able to see them last night but I got lots of pics sent to me. Love the internet for that. :) I did miss them, though. Your chili sounds great and so do the snickers. :-b Deb

How fun to make it a family event with lots of eats! Your little lamb is adorable!! I guess our grandsons enjoyed handing out treats at their door almost more than going door to door. I just wish we could have been there with them!

Deb said...

Oh my goodness...I'm laughing here. I thought that was a bowl of snickers (see my comment above)and didn't realize that was your dog's name. haha! Well, now I know. :) Deb

I noticed those eyelashes right away, without any prompting. They're amazing! Oh, Lynne, she's just so adorable. A sweet little lamb. Perfect costume for her. Love all the shoes, and Snickers waiting for his peeps. The food looks so yummy. Thanks for sharing all this. . .it put a smile on my face. And yes, I still say you're very photogenic. Hubby and grandbaby, too! Oh, and Snickers as well. xo ~ Nancy

Tradition! Here me singing it from the movie Fiddler On The Roof. We need more of them at our house I know.

Nancy said...

It looks like you had a wonderful time. And, wow! She's really grown in one year! Isn't chili the best food for this time of year?

Sue Silva said...

We're a Halloween chili gang, too! And boy, are those kids cute!

Pondside said...

It sounds like you had a lot of fun on Halloween, with lots of family. It's interesting to look at the Halloween photos from year to year to watch the little Trick or Treaters grow and change!

carolann said...

Oh those moments how I love that as you show. So darling and your doggy. So,so sweet. Now mine are all grown up my 6 Grandchildren as I may have told you before.

Then this Halloween. I took pictures in our Apt of wee ones coming in for treats.

Next year. Lord willing. I want to dress up as a Butterfly with a mask not a creepy mask.

We had creepy things not my choice and the children it was nice to see came as sweet and tender costumes mostly. I was happy to see that. I did not show the wee ones for protection for sake of the children. Just the ones mostly disguised by me.It was allowed.

Such a lovely time with family.

bj said...

ahh...we do love chili...must make it the first cold day...
Your little ones are so precious and you look great....

We always have chili on Halloween! We only had 34 kids for Trick or Treat this year. Used to have over 300, but now the care centers offer nights for the kids, and it's safer, and also Hampton downtown stores have a night for treats too. Loved the ones who came to our house! Two little guys down the block came, and they are from London. I love their accents!
