Halloween




We had a cute little lamb (I think), a beautiful princess, a mighty ninja, and Skullzor the scary dude. We found Sienna's costume in our closet full of dress-ups. I'm not sure where we got it from and if it is a lamb or white teddy bear costume. But she was cute and warm anyway. Kamrie's costume came from Grandpa Price last Christmas. She was very excited to wear make-up and had sparkles all over her face and hair. This is the third year in a row that she has been some kind of princess. I keep trying to convince her to be something else, but she just loves princesses. I'm afraid we're in for it when she becomes a teenager. Dallin found his costume at Target. I think he was more excited to buy the little ninja swords than the costume. He likes to play fight with Taylor and his buddies. I'm not sure if he was just playing the part in his pictures or if he just couldn't see with that costume and without his glasses. Taylor wanted to be something "scary" this year. I tried to suggest two other costumes we already had in the dress-up closet--Sulley from Monsters, Inc. or Stitch from Lilo and Stitch. Unfortunately he is old enough now that anything cutesie is WAY OUT. Then I tried to convince him to be something funny or cool like Napoleon Dynamite or a hippie. But he would have nothing to do with those either. I can't stand scary costumes. Fortunately, I don't think he scared anyone with that smile and those glasses (although Hannah doesn't look so sure in the picture). It was fun to have Scott, Maran, and Hannah come over for a pizza dinner and trick or treating. It was a perfect Halloween. The weather was much better than in the past and because the time change isn't until this Sunday, it was actually somewhat light out when we started. We all had a great time. Now we have to just control the sugar consumption. We have way too much candy because they did a trunk or treat on Tuesday as well. We let them pick about 15-20 pieces of candy that they just can't do without and keep them in their pumpkins. The rest of it went into a community pile. I have hidden that. For now they get to pick five pieces of candy a day to eat at their leisure. I'm not sure how long I will let that go on. I'm hoping the excitement of it all will fade soon. It's a good thing they have dentist appointments in a couple of weeks.

What cute kids! You're right about Taylor...he doesn't look too scary with that huge smile. How do you get Sienna to smile for pictures? Allie will NEVER smile for the camera (unless someone else is taking the picture). I wish we could have been there with you guys. Times like these really make us miss being close to family. I'm glad you had a great Halloween.

I've been waiting for this one. They looked darling. I have some old costumes from your Halloween days that I'm bringing up with me. Glad it wasn't freezing out or raining. It was perfect here too. Good luck with the candy. We have extras (just cheap sugar candies) and Dave has been eating them! I have to toss them! Love yas

The kid's look cute! That's awesome that you found Sienna's costume in the dress up box. Kaden was excited that he chose the same costume as Dallin. We miss trick or treating with you all!

We had fun with you guys trick-or-treating and eating pizza. Your kids looked very cute! We'll have to make this a tradition for the next 2-3 years.
