Halloween festivities!!

Jasmine, caterpillar (trash can, pippy long stockings people called me), Baby Bop
We forgot to get a picture with Uncle Spencer which is too bad cause he had a great superhero costume on.


After going to the church for some trunk or treating we hit up the neighborhood and met up with some friends. John, Nya, Sammy, and Ethan
Maile doesn't know when to stop, she loves her treats!!!
Emmy wasn't willing to put forth much effort trick or treating I had to carry her around and hold her bag, but she sure was ready and willing to eat as much of that candy as fast as she could.

Holidays just keep getting more fun the older the girls get. Maile was in a daze, it was like she just couldn't believe what was happening that people would just give her handfuls of candy for saying "trick or treat". Aaron had to work that night, but his brother Spencer came down for a couple of days and was there to go trick or treating with us which made things a bit easier. So, Spencer kept trying to keep her focused on her task of getting the most candy in the fastest amount of time, but every time we would try tell her something it was like she couldn't hear us and she just had this dazed look on her face. She kept going to the wrong houses or walking in the wrong direction. She was funny to watch and of course she loved it! The girls were sugared up and had a hard time getting to sleep that night.

While we did this the kids did this........Since we don't have our nice basement set up like our old house we just moved the projector into our room, the girls think it is the best when we have a movie night with popcorn and drinks on the big screen on our bed.

Of course after last year I don't feel like Halloween is complete without getting in a good pumpkin carving thanks to Allie, Matt, Erin, and John. sure missed you guys this year. Finding a pumpkin in Sierra Vista actually was the biggest problem. We spent hours looking for a dang pumpkin! How ridiculous is that? Well part of the problem is that we

are cheap and don't like to spend much more than $5 on one, so the pumpkin patch seemed a bit too pricey, so we went to all the grcoery stores (4) including the military base one and wal mart. All they had were the tiny ones, so finally after making the rounds we ended up back at the pumpkin patch to fork out the dough. We had a pumpkin carving party, but Spencer and I ended up being the only ones who didn't free hand it. We found patterns and the contest was on. So, which one do you like the best?

Hey Jess!!!! Sounds like halloween was a blast. I would have loved to see Maile trick or treating. She is the perfect age for that. We didn't get to carve pumpkins this year. Actually we just didn't want to because it's not as fun without you guys. No one has the passion we were looking for in pumpkin carving. I'm glad you carried out the tradition. It looks awesome.
