Halloween 2011

It was an eventful Halloween as always. I am always ready for Halloween to be over long before it actually is. Friday night was the school dance party in Halloween costumes (we danced the Thriller and the Monster Mash) and the ward 1st annual Chili cook off and Trunk or Treat. Saturday was carving pumpkins at Grandmas. Monday was trick or treating at the High School (preschoolers aka Garret only), Katie's class party and then trick or treating at our house. Our friends the Clarks and the Skimores came and went trick or treating with us. I think this is the 1st year since we lived here that we have actually gone trick or treating in our own neighborhood. It was also the 1st year that we carved our own pumpkins instead of just carving the ones at Grandma's house.

Garret and I trick or treating at the High School. This is the only way to trick or treat. The high school kids bring tons of candy and invite preschool aged kids to come and trick or treat. You walk up and down the halls in the warm school and get a bucket full of candy in about 20 minutes. My kind of trick or treating.

Michelle, Nixon, Sadie and Susie came with us too. Nixon was Batman. 
They both did not love their masks.

Garret was Darth Vader. He told me one morning last week, 
"Darth Vader is not a bad person. He's actually a good person who made bad choices."

Katie was a witch. Surprisingly I am good at doing witch hair.
(I'm not so good at doing normal hair. Maybe it's not a surprise.)

Tanner was a football player again. He wasn't really into the dressing up, but he was into the getting candy.

Katie's pumpkin, done all by herself (I did cut the top off)

Crazy Hair Day

It was crazy hair day at Katie's school today. We decided to do a trial run for her Halloween hair-do. She's going to be a witch. Perfect witch hair, huh? Who cares that it looks like rats ran through it all night.
