Halloween

We hope everyone had a great Halloween!! Halloween was a little different this year, at first I was a little worried but it turned out great. Our ward did not have the traditional Trunk or treat but we were encouraged be good neighbors. I was a little disappointed at first because I enjoyed the social part of being able to hang out with friends while my kids enjoyed running around with their friends. But like I said it turned out to be fun. Okay and here is a lame side note-I forgot to take a picture of Kawika before he ran off with his friends. Slacker mom! Here is Kalani-I think he makes a handsome pirate!

Kaili was a Southern Belle(thanks Mindy). She loved being dressed and was one cute little Southern Belle!


Kalei was a ballerina kitty. This girl changed her mind so many times it was driving my crazy! But I must say she is one cute kitty!

So in place of the Trunk or Treat we decided to decorate our yard and we brought the fire pit out in the front yard. We let people makes smores and have hot chocolate and handed out candy. It was a lot of fun. I took the girls around to a few neighbors houses while Dave stayed to pass out candy. After a couple of streets they were worn out :) That was fine with me! :) And the boys went Trick or Treating with their friend Kyle and spend the night going back and forth between each others houses.

I hear ya! Annie changed her mind a million times too. It's funny that you guys didn't do Trunk or Treat, because our ward here did it for the first time. It was kinda weird because they had it early so everybody could go home and pass out more candy. Thanks for sharing! Miss you guys :) Love, Crystal

Cute costumes. We had trunk-or-treat on Tuesday, and then more candy on Saturday...I think we might be in a sugar induced comma around here!

Wow! You kids look so adorable. It sounds like one very fun Halloween. Homemade root beer is my favorite.

Cute costumes and I love the fire pit/smores idea! How fun! I am torn between ward party and trick or treating. I always feel like a bad neighbor because we are never home on Halloween. But I do love a fun ward party!!!

What fun! If you are a slacker mom for missing one kid then I don't know what I am - I only got pictures of 1 kid. Hmmmmm
