Hallowe’en is one celebration that ranks highly in Oliver’s books. I think he takes after his Mum that way as she LOVES Hallowe’en. As a boy, I didn’t really get that “into” Hallowe’en. I did the normal dress-up/trick or treating that most kids do. But what I remember most about Hallowe’en is being in a […]

Here are some photos from our annual trip to Downey’s Farm in North Brampton. We always have a blast visiting this place just before Hallowe’en and this year was no exception. Oliver had fun playing a bit of mini-golf, running on the hay bails, and challenging us to races on the large go-cart-type-tricycles. The afternoon […]

At our house Dana and I rotate years as to who gets to take Oliver out trick or treating and who gets to stay home to hand out candy. We haven’t had the best of weather the past couple of years with all the rain that has happened Hallowe’en night. It has been advantageous from […]

Oliver has always been intrigued with what is done to a pumpkin in order to make it a jack-o-lantern but I’d never say he was actually excited to do it. He didn’t want to get his hands dirty and he certainly didn’t want to feel the “guts” of the pumpkin. But something changed this year. […]

Oliver has been obsessed with Star Wars for quite a while now. It should come as no surprise that he wanted to be Luke Skywalker for Hallowe’en this year. Dana, the wonderfully-obliging Mum that she is, dug out her old Princess Leia costume (why have I never seen this before?) and dressed up with Oliver […]

We took our annual trip to Downey’s Farm where we took some photos in the pumpkin patch and enjoyed the afternoon as a family. We’ve done this every year since we had Oliver and it’s a great tradition. We always have a fabulous time and there is so much to do for both the kids […]

Hallowe’en is always fun around our house. Dana really decorates the place up right. Oliver loves to get dressed up as seen in our previous posts (Oliver’s first Hallowe’en, Oliver’s second Hallowe’en, & Oliver’s third Hallowe’en) and this year was no exception. Oliver originally wanted…

Hallowe’en 2011. This year we expected Oliver to really “get it” and he didn’t disappoint. Right from the beginnings of October, when asked: “What would you like to be for Hallowe’en Oliver?” He would say: “A Snowman!” Yup, a snowman…

Hallowe’en….Oh Hallowe’en. Hallowe’en was fun last year as it was Oliver’s first. Dana planned out this Fighter Pilot outfit that just worked so well given Oliver’s size and…

Oliver “The Aviator” Connell. That is what we so graciously named our dear son this Hallowe’en. He looked quite stunning in his costume in what was his first year celebrating the dark holiday. Dana had this idea…

Dana suggested that since this was Oliver’s first Hallowe’en that we take him to a pumpkin patch to see what he thinks of the pumpkins. Well, I think it’s safe to say that Oliver loves them! We went up to…
