Halloweeeeeeeeen!!

Here's our Halloween post: better late than never, right?!! A week before Halloween, Sarah and Seth came over to "carve" pumpkins. We cheated/opted out of the carving part, and did potato head pieces. It was easy - the kids could do it themselves, and clean!! We liked how our monster pumpkins turned out. It sure is hard to get a decent picture of our kids together. Someone is always looking the wrong direction, or pulling a weird face.Halloween was a blast!! I was a gypsy, but kids these days don't know what that is, so they all thought I was a "girl pirate". Isn't Nathan's, costume awesome?!! He's a Mexican wrestler. Elijah did not like him with the mask on. Van's the ghost, Noah's the spider, and of course little Marlee is Snow White.We had a great night. The weather was warm and mild (for the most part). We didn't have to bundle the kids up (which was nice not to have to cover up their costumes). We started out the evening at South Weber's 'Trunk or Treat'. (our old ward) Marlee and her friend Katie thought they were so big because their dad's let them walk around the street on their own!! Look out!! They're 6 going on 13.The kids got a ton of candy, but we wanted them to do the "real thing". So we headed home and went around our neighborhood. We ended the night having to call Nathan to come and rescue us - it started pouring rain!! Of course by the time he got to us, it had stopped, but the kids were tired, so we called it a night. Isn't he the cutest elephant ever? Even if he won't smile for anyone!! Noah and Vance loved Trick or Treating!! They understood it this year. And Marlee had a blast being out with friends!! Now the candy's gone, so are the tummy aches, and now we can begin to look forward to the next few weeks full of holidays and birthdays!! Hoo-rah!!

They look so cute in there costumes. Marlee makes for a very cute Snow White. I love halloween. What other time of year can knock on a strangers door and demand candy and get away with it. I love it!

Cute, cute costumes!! Nathan's costume is GREAT! He looks just like the one dude in "Nacho Libre". And yes I too am thankful all the candy is gone in our house. I just wish I wouldn't have helped it go away so fast!
