A fun Halloween

The week leading up to Halloween was a pretty busy week and to top it all off my poor hubby was sick. We tried to find a night to carve pumpkins but finally just carved them on Halloween. The kids got out of school early and had a lot of fun carving them out. They actually helped scrape out the seeds this year which they always were grossed out by how slimy they were.



The boys liked that the candle gave their pumpkin a lit tooth

The girls jack-o-lantern masterpiece

Dave was able to convince the kids to dress up as things we already had stuff for, so it was nice that we didn't have to buy very much.





Kawika was excited to be able to wear his dads football jersey.
Our ward has a trunk or treat every year that has kind of turned into a neighborhood party. They had games, hot dogs, and cotton candy. The kids and I had a great time and Dave stayed home to pass out candy:( When we got home the kids spent a good hour trading candy with each other and of course they still have enough candy to last them till next Halloween!

Cute costumes on cute kids. I'm glad you all have a fun day. Our trunk-or-treat used to be a town party, but it has been ruined by a few dough heads. Brent decided he was too old for dress up this year, so we watched movies.

I am so glad the election is over as well!

Luv the pumpkins! Isn't fun when the kids get creative with what you have around the house. That's how we did most of my son's costume. Very cute post.

We convinced Noah to be something we already had too. Doesn't it just feel great when that happens! It makes for a more creative and less commerical holiday!
Cute pumpkins too!
