I'm going to make a confession, but I'll only tell you: Halloween colors are my favorite to scrapbook with.
I think if I could find a way to do orange, black and white on everything, I would.
Because of last year's scrapbook photo mom debacle [read: I got zero shots of Cole in his Anakin Skywalker get up, breaking his lifetime tradition of full Halloween photo documentation], I was determined to not repeat history.
This year, Cole had planned to trick or treat with his buddy in another neighborhood, so I made sure to get at least a few solid shots of this year's look—Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants. His buddy was going as Brian Wilson, a.k.a. The Beard.
My lovely daughter Aidan decided to throw a party for her friends this year, and her choice of costume for the soiree? Cruella De Vil.
Of course, Dan and I brought up the rear, so to speak, as House and The Bee, respectively.
And in the end, it was all safely documented on this lovely scrapbook page.

JOURNALING READS: Cruella De Vil, Tim Lincecum (aka The Freak), Dr. House and the Bee. The Zielskes delivered holiday cheer yet again in 2011. I adore Halloween. Everything about it. Dressing up. Decorating. No gifts to exchange. No impending stressful travel. Just make believe you’re something else for nothing more than simply fun. This year, Aidan hosted a party for her friends (always such a great group) and Cole went over to Jack’s neighborhood (where he dressed up as Brian Wilson (aka The Beard.) It comes and goes too dang fast, Halloween. Until next year…
Ahhh. Another day, another Halloween scrapbooked.
Only 359 days to wait until the next one.
