Halloween Time

Like I said busy month, here are some over the Halloween activities we did. Sadly I didn't get any pics from our amazing fall festival. Maybe since I never even saw the kids- they spent the whole night in the bouncy houses or on the tractor trailer thingy.

For our first Halloween party I didn't have all their costumes so I just dressed them up in whatever we could find around the house. Hudson ended up loving his so much that he decided that is what he wanted to be for Halloween.
Aunt Suzy is starting an annual Halloween party for the kids, it was a blast. Of course there were crafts, yummy treats and games galore.

This table was for popcorn hands but Pres saw an opportunity she could not pass up!
Jackson and his cupcake from the cupcake walk.
Hudson won Most Fun Costume- since every kid was trying to "ride" him

Hudson on his way to his preschool party, his teachers said he would not take off the jacket or hat the whole time. By the time I got there he was drenched in sweat. That is Hudson for ya.

Miss Dora, Pres LOVED her costume she was so excited about it.
On Halloween the neighbors get together and Gary makes hot dogs and I make my White Chili, we hang out until it is time to Trick or Treat. Since Halloween fell on Sunday this year we were going to go on sat. night thinking all the members would be doing it that night. Well after dinner Uncle Dave took the boys and the rest of the cousins over to Grandma Cheryl's for Shelle's carnival and Grandmas store. So it was just me and Pres, she kept begging to go Trick or Treating so we headed off, we walked down our whole street and only one house was out giving candy, it was dead. I was going to just go back but Pres was begging me to Trick or Treat still, I had heard that a ward was doing a Trunk or Treat at the church building so we walked down there. It took her all of 10 min. to fill up her basket.

We went back home and there were still no trick or treaters so we headed over to the carnival and Grandma C's. The boys had never gone Trick or Treating since they were there all night so on the way home we hit up another Trunk or Treat.
See all this candy well about 1/10 of it has been eaten, almost all of it was donated to the troops and the kids have still not finished what I let them keep. But hey it's the fun of getting free candy right? Also the comparing and trading!

The next night when all the trick or treaters came around Hudson sat outside for hours passing out candy. He would run to everyone even close to the house and start putting candy in their bags, curbside service! He was so excited doing it, I think he enjoyed it more than trick or treating. He wouldn't come in until all the candy was gone!
