Dahlstrom Halloween Splendor

I would like to introduce you to my friend Coby Dahlstrom.

We went to college together.

I love to see what she dreams up for her family’s Halloween Costumes each year

She is a very creative gal; they are always terrific.

So in spirit of the Holiday today, I would like to share a recap of her creativity over the years.

I hope they inspire you.

B) Baby Rapunzel, Evil Witch and Knight.

C) The Incredibles

D) Star Wars

E) Super Heroes (Love that the dog is batman)

Standing applause Coby – you are such a clever one.

What will it be tonight?

I’m putting my wager on Dawg the Bounty Hunter, his illustrious Wife, and a bandit of hooligans’?

What else, oh yes one more thing friends.

Have you ever been Boo’d ?

It is so much fun to receive and even better to pass along.

It’s a touch late to start this now, but you can always plan for next year.

To ‘Boo’ your friends just fill a container with goodies, secretly deliver and let the fun get passed along all month long.

Check out the entire story HERE at Cindy’s Skip to My Lou Website.

To help start your own tradition next year here is Cindy’s helpful Booing Poem.

Since this is the time for goblins and bats

Halloween spirits and ghosts and cats

Happenings are weird and witches make brew

The following are the things I wish for you.

May the only spirit you chance to meet

Be thee spirit of love and friends that are sweet.

May the only goblin that comes your way

Be the neighborhood phantom, the breeze takes away.

So by tomorrow, pick a friend down the street

And give to them a Halloween treat.

Fill this cone with goodies galore,

Then hang it on their front door.

You only have one day to do this, so hurry

Leave treats on their door and run in a flurry

As this cone moves along from friend to friend,

All good wishes go on and never end


Thanks Cindy!

Have a Safe and Sane Halloween Friends.

Send me your photos, I love to see them!
