Halloween Fun

So Halloween seems to be more of a season than an event these days. Here are all of the pictures from all of the Halloweenish events this October: pumpkin carving, Alan's school party, joy school party, trunk or treat, Scott work party...not to mention the actual night.

Pumpkin carving

Trying on the costumes

Joy School Fun! (James was a great singer!)

These jars were our "conference craft." Alan and James and I worked on them during some of the sessions of conference to help keep everyone happy.

She LOVED carrying around all three pumpkins. It would take her a little while to get them all loaded up, then she'd walk to the other side of the room. Put them down, and pick them all back up again. Pretty funny!

Alan's school had an awesome Halloween party one Friday night. They had tons carnival games, arts and crafts, treats, pumpkin decorating, etc. It was really fun! There was also a parade, but it was kind of late, crazy, meltdowns, anyway, we left before that, but still had a fun evening!

Of course we had the ward Trunk-or-Treat with a talent show added this year!

On Halloween Day, Amazon had a Halloween party for the family. We got to see where Scott worked (which is usually not allowed) and trick or treat at some of his co-workers desks. Then there was a little party area with food, coloring, and the Charlie Brown Halloween. So fun!

In the parking garage... Alan desperately wanted these pictures. :)

After the work party and stopping at Grandma and Grandpa's, we got home, ate some chili and rushed out the door for a little trick or treating! 

Lucy and I only did a few houses, so that I could come back and hand out candy. She spent most of the evening emptying the candy bowl and throwing it down the stairs. She was quite pleased with herself.

After all was said and done, the boys picked their chips to eat on Halloween night. Go figure!

We ♥ Fall

So, we have our cold and somewhat depressing weather in now. But let me tell you, you sure can't beat the fall. Truly the best time of the year. Here are a sampling of all of our fall fun including: apple picking, pumpkin picking, hay maze, spooky hay ride, and Alan class field trip! What fun!
