Our kids are at such fun ages for all the holidays. All three of them were so excited for Halloween. We had a lot of fun cutting out ghosts and bats and spiders to hang around the house.
I went to Mckinley's Halloween parade at school. It was fun to see all the different costumes. She had a lot of ideas of what she wanted to be this year but in the end I convinced her that it would be a great idea to wear the Cinderella dress we already had in her closet. ;)
Brandon's parents put together a super fun Halloween party for the kids with lots of fun games and prizes.
Tyler kills me. So we borrowed a space man suit from Brandon's mom for him and he was wearing it at home for days and then my mom watched the kids while we went to the temple and when we got back he was in this leopard costume that my mom made for my brother FORTY years ago! Seriously, I'm not kidding. He just turned 42 and he wore this probably when he was 2. Anyway, Tyler was in love with it and wouldn't take it off. He wore it every day and even on Halloween, but we accidentally left it at my brother's house after lunch on Halloween so he wore the space costume trick or treating.
Our ward did a trunk or treat this year which was awesome and then we just went to a few houses right near ours and the kids were done. It was very low key and lots of fun.
Mckinley had colored a pumpkin way early in October and the day after Halloween we decided to carve it.
This was exactly how she wanted it. Super easy!
I can't believe how much fun life can be when your kids are old enough to have fun and be excited for holidays. Every year gets better and better. I can't wait for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
