Halloween!

I decided it was about time I got around to posting about Halloween before I totally lost interest due to laziness. :)

Thursday Beth had a Halloween program at Joy School. It was short, but quite adorable. They sang 3 songs and did a little costume parade and they had decorated cupcakes for the guests, and my favorite was their bow at the end of the program. Too cute! Is that skunk not the cutest thing you have ever seen? The second picture is them singing their Jack-o-lantern song.


Then on Friday we had a fun-filled, candy-FILLED day! Ryan's work had a trick-or-treat party at the office, I went thinking it wouldn't be that big of a deal, but it was crazy! A bunch of the employees were dressed up, there were TONS of kids, and almost every cubicle in the office had candy to hand out. The kids made a major candy haul! Of course I had promised trick-or-treating to the neighbors too, so we did a little of that after dinner. Then, as is tradition, we went over to Grandma and Grandpa Owen's house to see all the cousins in costume and have a little treat with all the family. Then grandpa took all of the older kids trick-or-treating to his street. As is quite obvious from this explanation, the kids got more candy than any child, or adult for that matter, should have. But they loved it! They were both excited about the treats of course, but I think their favorite was just going from door to door and showing off their costumes. My cute kids! Anyway, it was quite a succesful day and Beth can't stop asking when we get to do it again, good thing we have enough candy to last us until next Halloween! None of these are spectacular pictures of their costumes, but I have more on the way and will post them as soon as I can! They were pretty darn cute!

This is the candy after just the office party!
And here is the kid's cousine Sophie. Isn't her witch hat awesome?? I totally want one for future costumes!

You are braver than I am. My kids got candy, but not nearly as much as they have come home with in other years. Looks like you all had a lot of fun.
