Brace yourself this is a long one...

This year for Halloween Ava is a fairy and Eli is a pumpkin. Our wonderful friend, Angie, took some pictures for our kids in there costumes.

Halloween for us started on Sunday when Justin wanted to make sugar cookies. Every year Justin's family make sugar cookies and then get together to frost them. My favorite is Justin's tooth cookie with decay on it. (Can you find it?)

.....Then for Family Home Evening we carved pumpkins. Ava got to color hers.

Every Wednesday we get together for singing time at the clubhouse. Which Ava loves. They decided to have a Halloween party. We all dressed up, played games, sang songs, and ate treats! The kids looked cute in there costumes.

Each year a few days before Halloween we go the dental clinic and have a Halloween parade. It is so fun to see all the students kids dressed up. After the parade we get to have lunch with Justin before he has to finish the rest of his school day. It is fun to see where Justin is everyday, we are proud of our student.

The next day we got together with some great friends to have a witches brew at Carissa's. We all dressed as witches and the kids played a lot of fun games, thanks Lisa & Carissa!

Halloween day we went trick or treating at Village Green...

...and then over to our ward trunk or treat and dinner. It was so fun to see all the neighbors and kids in the ward dressed up. We were all on a sugar high when we got home and Ava was very tired. It's not a successful party unless the kids are crying when we leave. It was a fabulous Halloween!

...After a fun filled week, I think Ava is glad it is over.

Wow! Busy week, and I know what you mean...it just doesn't seem like a sucessful outing unless the kids come home tired, grumpy, and crying :) Oh and I love the decayed tooth made from a sugar cookie. Good visual for Ava on what sugar does to your teeth. Thats too funny.

HOW FUN! Your family pics look great. We need to get some taken. we have never had a family pic, Brad refuses. Halloween seemed fun, too. Your kids costumes are so great. If you go through WY for the holidays you are always welcome to stop by.
