Merry Christmas... I mean, Trick or Treat


We had a great time watching the kids trick-or-treat. It was a busy day/night. We had lunch with our friends in Lehi, then we picked up Whitney (my sister) down in Provo. Then we stopped by my cousin's house, and then got home around 5pm. We all had dinner, got the kids ready and headed out the door around 6pm. We went to Jake's parents' house first and the kids saw their cousins, Hannah and Isabelle. Then we stopped by my grandparents' house in West Valley. Then we got back to our neighborhood in North Salt Lake around 7:45pm and the kids trick-or-treated for an hour. The weather was perfect, a tad cold but we will take it over snow and rain! Jake and Whitney were getting a little bored half-way through so told the kids to say "Merry Christmas" when people answered the door. It was funny to see some of our neighbors' reactions (and we got a kick out of it too.) Josh finally figured out the whole trick-or-treating thing at the last house, so I'm sure next year he will have it down.

In case you can't tell, Emma is "Belle" from Beauty and the Beast. She wanted brown hair so our neighbor, Kristin, let us use some of her brown hair spray and it worked really well. Emma loved being a brunette for the night. Ben is a green 3-D skeleton and loved that his costume had bony fingers and toes. Josh was superman and could care less about his costume. He just wanted chocolate, and lots of it. (A boy after my own heart.) Aunt Whitney is Sue Sylvester from Glee, the new show on Fox. Overall, it was a busy, but fun and successful night.

Dad and I wish we were there, we talked about how we got back a year ago and how fun it was to go around with the kiddy doos. Cute pics!

That is awesome! I looked at the first picture and did a double take on Emma. Her hair is spot on! I love it. Whitney looks so funny, it's totally Sue Sylvester. Cute! Wish we could have been there to do it together (does that phrase sound familiar?)

How fun, I'm glad ben wasn't sick. Melissas kids woke up with flew like symptoms just this morning. Poor kids, I have yet to hear whether they were well enough to go out trick-or-treating. I can't wait for the stage where my kids are excited for trick-or-treating. Obviously, Halloween will always be a big party at our house thanks to Jonahs quick arrival.
I'm glad Halloween was a success, sounds like a fun day. Hope everything else is going well. Let us know when you are back down in Provo ever, we would love to see you guys or have a visit from you just a little further our in Springville. Later on, we can set up a time to meet up somewhere. We'd love to see you.
