Happy Halloween 2011!

This year, Halloween was awesome! The weather was amazing, and the kids got to do a lot of trick-or-treating. Poor little Calee was pretty tired by the time we were done. It was so cute watching her run up to doors and yell "trick-or-treat".  Our kids came home with their baskets completely full of candy. Bryce and Emmy went out trick-or-treating with us, while Amanda stayed back with Christy and Jen to hand out candy. We had lots of good pizza, treats, and good friends stop by to say hi. our friend Kylie, even took a minute to drop by and eat some pizza with us. It was a very fun night and our kids looked so cute this year.

Haunted Halloween Gingerbread House

Our kids got to to up to Grandma's house last night and make this gingerbread house. They had a blast making it and it ended up looking really cool. They were especially proud of the little ghost on the front.

School Halloween Parade

We got to go and watch the kids in their school Halloween Parade this morning. There were a lot of really cute costumes this year. Alice in Wonderland seemed to be a popular theme this year. There were also a lot of cheerleaders this year too. Carter was an awesome Mad Hatter and Cambree looked so cute in her cheerleader costume.

Halloween 2011 Jack-O-Lanterns

This year we picked out some pretty good pumpkins from Lyle Dabb's farm (The Pumpkin Man), including a very cool 50 lb White pumpkin. Our kids love to scoop out pumpkin guts and carve them. We spent several nights this week carving pumkins. Usually they pick out complicated patterns and I end up carving it for them, but I don't mind. This year we carved Dracula, a witch, a black widow spider, and a ghost. We made our big white pumpkin into Jack Skellington.
