HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!









I take great joy in any opportunity to dress my dogs. It's a sickness I know...but it makes me laugh so I ain't lookin to stop anytime soon.

luckily they have a good sense of humor about it.



HAH ya gotta love a good "bee" joke.




ok..maybe not everyone thinks it's funny.


But we do agree on one thing for sure.....The whole gang here at our house wants to wish you all.......










And since this is a night for TREATS....I was "treated" very kindly by the following amazing bloggers. Firefly over at firefly-shop
Gave me this beautiful award. It's a special one she created herself so I feel really honored to have it. Go visit her and check out her beautiful blog!!

And Ally from Mommy Love
Who has a blog I just found recently.... gave me this beautiful award she designed and created! Isn't it cool! She has three adorable kids and a really cute blog. Go give her a visit!







AJ from "A work in Progress" was sweet enough to think of me for this award. I've been going to her blog for quite some time. She has these 2 adorable daughters that make me smile...and she has lots of fun idea. Thanks AJ!



And finally.....This award is very special to me. It was given to me by Beth from Aunties with Advice When I discovered her blog I just knew that I would be hooked on it forever. She is such a sweet lady and she warms my heart with her kindness. And her blog always makes me feel warm and fuzzy. Go meet her if you haven't already. You'll see exactly what I mean.

Thanks to all you lovely bloggers. The awards are a precious gift and I greatly appreciate them.



NOW LETS ALL GO EAT TOO MUCH CANDY!!!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Those pictures are awesome :)

Cheryl said...

Congrats on your awards! You are very deserving of them. Absolutely love Crumpet and Ozgood's costumes. Maybe Ozgood should have had a little devil's costume and of course, Crumpet would have the angel costume ;) Thanks for stopping by and I hope you had a WONDERFUL 48th BIRTHDAY!!! I hope your DH planned something. I know if he did we will see pics soon.
Heart Ya,
Cheryl

Michelle said...

LMAO! Your dogs have such a sense of humor! I'll have to share with them a picture of my dogs dressed up for Halloween. Xena went as her Vet last year and Molly was a princess. The princess costume makes me laugh so hard that the pictures usually come out blurry do to extreme laughing fits.

Happy Halloween to you too!

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

And they said you can't put lipstick on a dog.

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Crumpie and Ozzie are so cute and funny in their costumes! They really do look like they could be saying those things.

I want to get my evil Jack Russell a devil costume because it really really fits.

Alyson (New England Living) said...

Sounds good to me! Let's break out the candy.

That dinosaur costume is really cracking me up!

Smilingsal said...

Congratulations, Nikki, on your many well deserved awards. Those dogs are so patient. You must feed them well for them to put up with this stuff.

mishebe said...

Happy Halloween to you too.....mishelle

Chris said...

Congratulations, Nikki on all of your awards, you so deserve them. I get so excited when I see you have posted a new one. Your furbabies look so thrilled to be all dressed up. Have a Happy Halloween.

Hugs,

Penny said...

I loved the bee joke. I think it's inspired me to be a bee and get my buzz on tonite. hahaha
Happy Halloween! Congrats on your awards. Hugs, Penny

dana said...

Where oh where do I start? I have been away too long (I am not the woman YOU are---you actually work AND blog. When I have my seasonal sales--like now to Dec.---my blog visiting and post writing seem to slow waaaaay down! I guess it is because you are so danged YOUNG and I am considerably older! THERE, don't you feel better already????)

Anyway, back to WHERE do I start? Gotta tell you those sweet poochies look like little HW Doggie Models!!! My little critters won't sit still for a costume fitting--cept THE STONE RABBIT! He sits realllllll still. Will your canine pals share the treats they get after their finished Trick or Treating?

I LOVED your photos of YOU on your birthday post! HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!! Even though I am lots older than you, some of those early hairdos look, oddly enough, like some of mine. I guess "good dos" are timeless!!! Your description of your body parts changing and your coping with that was hysterical. Keep on laughing! It don't get no better! But you are right---ya just gotta laugh about it. When I was working with kiddos in the pub. school setting (10 years ago, so I was just 50 then), a little boy was across the table from me and kept looking at me. I was busy writing something and I finally asked him what he was looking at and he said: "Why does your hair look so young and your face doesn't?" Well, those little boogers just tell it like it is! After I picked my jaw up from the table and fluffed my hair a bit, I just smiled at the little dear and said "That's because I am OLD." That day was a real awakening. If the kids saw me as old, so did my family and my friends and EVERYBODY else on earth. I was really in a funk for a while and then I remembered something that has helped me cope with aging and appreciate my journey. My sis died when she was 40--unexpectedly. I was 42 at the time. She didn't have a chance to get saggy or wrinkled or need Depends or thick glasses. She also didn't get to see her daughter grow up and get married. All of those good things that happen with aging--she missed out on. Well, I have been lucky enough to experience both the good and the bad---and I am thankful for that! So, MS Birthday Girl, you look fab. to me---you have a great sense of humor and a wonderful gift of creativity--and a great life with this hubby and your POOCHES and your kids! I say, Keep on Enjoying those Birthdays! happy, happy, happy!!! L, dana

Oh, yes, I LOVED the backyard saga! And of course, congrats on all of your awards!! You deserve every stinkin one of them!!!

squawmama said...

Nikki... what a great Birthday for you to get so many awards... Congrats to you and your little furbabies are just so adorable.. Love the pictures...They skeeered me! Have a Spooktacular Day...

Happy Halloween

Ally said...

Your dogs are cute! How old are they?

I love dressing up my boys, today my house is going to be invaded by a pirate, clown and a pumpkin.

Heather said...

The doggies are BEEutiful in their costumes! :D (Sorry, best I can do at this hour without sufficient caffeine running through my veins yet.)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

santamaker said...

Aww, Nikki, I'm coming right over to rescue Crumpet and Ozzie from that horrible costume abuse!! LOL! How cute are they?!!!! I have tried many times to put a costume on Duchess but shes a little fighter... she'll rub herself on the floor and won't give up until the frickin' thing comes off!
have a great halloween and save me the reeses peanutbutter cups!

big hair envy said...

I certainly hope that your "children" will dress up and help you hand out candy tonight!! TOO CUTE!

KC Mom said...

Can't wait to dress up my terror tonight! I already ate my fill of sweets this morning..the homemade donuts...I think I'm gonna be sick..congrats on the awards...I'm a wanna be!

Jen said...

That is cute, I think my dogs would actually try to eat me if I tried to dress them up (I would have to make some cause they're so big)!! Ha

Congrats on the awards..that's so nice!

Saucy Scribe Debora said...

I want to dress up my cat this year - not sure he'll cooperate, but you've inspired me to at least try. cute pics. Have a great day!

Blissful Nikki said...

SOOOOOOOOO cute!!!! Thats all I can say! hehe And I love the bee jokes! :)

santamaker said...

Hey Nikki, had to come back with my costume on.... I believe this hair reminds me of one of your photos?!?..LOL

J'Ollie Primitives said...

Happy belated birthday!

sandy said...

The doggie costumes are soooooo cute! I wish I would have gotten one for my Princess Lucy. Oh well maybe she can be an elf or a reindeer for Christmas.

ceekay said...

Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment. I LOVE the outfits on the dogs. If I had a dog...I would so do this. Talk to you soon!

Bo said...

Hey Nikki...I do believe you owe the boys a nice, hot fresh SQUIRREL dinner for indulging you like this...Haha.. ;-) Bo

Becky said...

Hey Nikki, these pictures are hysterical! I knew you would have something totally awesome for today. Thanks again for making me laugh out loud. Belly laughing is suppose to be good for ya and thanks to you I'm getting healthier by the day. LOL!

Carolynn said...

Wow, you're rakin' in the awards! Good for you, congratulations, and keep up the good work!

You'd better be careful, your dogs may turn on you one day and spread compromising photos of you all over the internet...

Gollum said...

What a fun post! The costumes are adorable, and so are your furkids.

And Happy Birthday!!! I hope you had a great one.

salmagundi said...

I came to visit hoping to see the dogs dressed up in all of their Halloween glory. I wasn't disappointed - they are adorable. Sally

Jan said...

You are so fun Nikki. I love your dogs. They are "honeys". I would have had hives too. I always believe that dogs are here for owners entertainment sometimes. It is so much fun.

Have a great Halloween and I am still amazed that we had 3 kids with no epidurals. We are superheroes for today right.

Darlene said...

Morning Nikki,

Congratulations on all your awards! I LOVE the costumes...they look too cute!!! Hope you have a Happy Halloween!!!

bj said...

OOOO, Crumpet and Ozgood will win first place for their costumes for sure! So cute and I love Crumpet's shade of lipstick!! hee hee...
And, I have no idea whatsoever why you come up Anonymous on my comment page...really WEIRD !
Happy Halloween.....

gingela5 said...

Congrats on the awards! And love the dog costumes! Yours cooperated a lot more than mine did! And Sadie was a bee too!

The Boss Lady said...

If it weren't for the food and shelter, I'm pretty sure your canines would be running their little paws as away from you as fast as they can. The look on their faces says it all. :)

Thanks for the giggles and Happy Halloween!

Mrs de Miranda said...

Ok I LOVE those costumes, especially the dinosaur! It was just too cute! Im putting my puppy in a little witch costume tonight so I will post pictures! It should be fun! Have a great Halloween!

Sue said...

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! POOR CRUMPET AND HIS HIVES....

joelandbecca said...

I love it! And they are so precious! I love the buddies! I can't get enough of them. It sounds like a sickness, but I was thinking of taking a prenatal course on how to prepare your pets for a new baby! My family just makes fun of me. Yes, I have a major illness! I love my dog!

Aleta said...

Hehe, love the costumes, but that last picture was down right scary. Lol. Congrats on your awards!!

Firefly said...

You desrevd all the awards - congratulations !
Candy calls :)

Diane said...

Happy Halloween Nikki! Your furbabies are too precious!

My furbabies think I've lost my marbles. Roxy is wearing a Little Monster shirt & Sammie is wearing a Halloween dish towel for their pictures this year. I couln't find Chief's costume from last year, he was supposed to wear his padded vinyl sportscar. Bailey wouldn't hold still for a hat & Murphy just doesn't feel good, so I didn't bother him with the dress up. :0} Diane

Michael said...

Happy Halloween, Nikki! I'm literally rolling at Crumpet and Ozzie...too freaking cute! Shelby and Brasco would never let us dress them up, lol.

Congrats on the blog love...every one of them is well deserved :)

Have a great weekend!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

You're so funny! And your dogs are pretty cute too. I'm eatin' that candy right now. Happy belated birthday, enjoyed your photos...you're a hoot!

AJ said...

Well thanks for saying such sweet things about me and my girls:) You're the best! Just thought you'd want to know that it is only 8:20pm and I might very well have already od'd on the Halloween candy! Pig out much?!?! Oh, well, you only live once right;) Happy Halloween!!

Marrdy said...

Love those dogs. I needed a good laugh so I owe you! And congrats on those awards. You really do deserve them all!

bloggin' Chrystal said...

I don't know anyone who has more BLESSED dogs than YOU! Hope you had a Happy Halloween! I'm off to Canton again tomorrow...gotta get some shut-eye.

laurie said...

I just read Santa's comment, and that sounds like every dog I've ever had. My current baby doesn't even like for me to put her collar on! They are SO cute, and I cannot believe they let you put those costumes on them. Congratulations on your awards. laurie

Lo said...

OMG....I'm going to be so sick from eating my kids candy!

Elizabeth G. said...

Nice to meet you!

You have a really great blog...It is very inventive and light-hearted.

I'm in Utah, but I'm originally from NC (with a long stay in LA).

Eudea-Mamia said...

Looks like the brantosaurus ate some bad Ozzie, and was "revisting" the experience.

Love me some bee jokes - they look adorable!

Elizabeth G. said...

Hi -

Yes, I live in Sandy. I know where Payson is. Do you ever see yourself moving back?

I miss my home, too. I'm from NC/VA.

How is Massachusetts? Is Mitt Romney a good Gov?

Take care,
Elizabeth

Ginger said...

I love your blog...what a great sense of humor you have. I went back to some of your older blogs...loved the NY blog the way you tell your stories. I ran out of time but will come back later and finish reading.
Ginger

Kristin said...

So cute. Your doggies expressions crack me up.

jill jill bo bill said...

Congrats on the awards! You Rock. And I am NOT saying that because I mean you are 5 yrs older than me and need a rockin' chair. Okay, maybe I mean it just a tad.... And the dogs look super. Way to continually humiliate them and keep them in their place. I love it. I have missed you!!!!

Ginger said...

I came back to read some more of your blog...I am in your old home state...Utah. Moved here (Cedar City area)3 years ago from Las Vegas.
I was laughing over the blog about how people talk in Mass. Would drive me crazy...but I love the colors there in the fall. I want to take a trip to all the New England states someday, just to see the colors and the neat houses.
You sure get a lot of comments, I don't know how you can keep up with all of them.
Ginger
