A witch, a unicorn, a zombie, a Cinderella princess and an Indian princess
Carving pumpkins--a cat, a goomba, stars and stripes and a painted face
People ask me what I'm going to dress up as for Halloween. I just roll my eyes. By the time I get 5 kids dressed up 3 times each for different parties and trick-or-treating, I don't even want to think about changing clothes or putting makeup on.
We had a fun year this year. We went to the school carnival, the Nightmare Express which was a small real train and you ride through some haunted tunnels, a haunted house and Scott's work party. We also squeezed in some scary movies. Carving pumpkins this year was much easier. Alyssa and Amber helped clean them out and then they all carved at least a little of their own pumpkin. Not nearly as much work as usual. Alivia painted a cute face on hers but then got so excited she painted all over it and it was a big mess by the time she was done, especially as Soran was helping. On the 30th we went to our ward trunk-or-treat which was held inside because it was raining. Then we raced up to Scott's parents house and did a little door-to-door just to let the kids see how it was in the good old days. Then we went to the other grandparents' and had caramel apples (I asked for something healthy). Then we came home and put the kids to bed and played games with Ben and Cami. We should have enough candy to last until next year.
