Halloween was so much fun this year. The kids were definitely into the holiday. Lila seemed to remember things from last year so all month she kept on asking if it was Halloween yet. We actually got to dress up several times during the month. First, for our ward party. Then, Lila and I each dressed up for school parties and such. Finally, the actual day of Halloween.
On Halloween we simply went to my mum's ward trunk or treat and we loved it.
Lila was dressed as Minnie Mouse, Brighton was a cowboy, and I was the tooth fairy (thanks Bec). Aren't we adorable?! Okay, maybe just the kids are, but yes, they certainly are! :)
Here's my sister Sarah dressed as the headless horseman. I was very impressed by her costume. My mum's was also pretty groovy.
The family that went to mum's party.
There was one big bummer for the evening… you may notice that Micah is not in the picture. He wasn't able to join us. Our dang car had problems again! He stayed home and dealt with that while I took the kids. It was so sweet that he still wanted to have the kids go trick-or-treating. Oh well, maybe next year. :(
It was a calm year which I appreciated. The kids had a great time and I wasn't stressed about trying to drag them around to different houses. They got a lot of candy, but not too much. We got to spend time with my family, which is always fun, and then we got to drive home and sleep in our comfortable beds. A great way to end a holiday.
