Happy 2008 Halloween!

Every year for Halloween our church puts on a trunk or treat. All the cars line up and the kids go from trunk to trunk trick or treating. It is such a great tradition, and so much safer than real trick or treating, although we do that too (More candy for the parents!). Being on the activities committee meant I had to be there super early to set up, so the kids got to come for the ride. Nathan is a Knight and Caden is... can you guess? Scooby-Doo! I'm surprised I got Scott to not do it for so long. For those of you who don't know, my hubby is an avid Scooby-Doo fan. He registered for Scooby-Doo movies on our baby registry, and even got Scooby-Doo bath towels from friends who knew he loved it for our wedding (Yes, we still have them).






For our preschool field trip another group in our ward who uses the funshine express invited us to go with them to a little church pumpkin patch. They started our with singing and a story and then the kids got to pick out little pumpkins for 50 cents. My camera ran out half way through, so these are all I got.



This year we let Nathan pick out which picture pattern to carve the pumpkin with. Okay, so he might have had some help from his mom....




For Halloween Night my folks came over with David (Jonny had a much more important social function to attend). My Dad, David and Scott took Cade and Nate trick or treating while my Mom and I sat and passed out candy. I love seeing all the little kids in their fun costumes. And then making fun of the kids in their big ones. Plus it gives my Mom and I time to chat, though, not uninterrupted.
