Halloween 09!

We had a great Halloween this year! Brighotn has been so excited about it for so long! This week was filled with Halloween parties, crafts, pumpkins, and treats. Oh the fun. Bri was Snow White this year. Last year she was Cinderella. I wonder if we will just cycle through all of the princesses.

Brighton had a great time trick-or-treating and got plenty of candy. Good thing, because we got a million trick-or-treaters and ran out of candy so we started handing out Bri's candy. We gave away about half of it along with a box of fruit snacks we had in the pantry before Don made it back from the store with more. Of course, as soon has he got back, the trick-or-treat traffic slowed WAY down. Bri loved handing out candy! She might have even liked it more than the trick-or-treating. She may not have been so excited about it if she had realized she was giving away her own candy though. (Shh, don't tell).

(70's detective, if you were wondering)



Did you know Snow white carried a magic wand? Well she does.






Alexis came for the weekend and helped out with our pumpkin carving. She carved the two on the right. I'm sure you can tell what they all are, but in case you can't...from left to right: The Joker, a cat, turned owl, turned raccoon, Bella & Edward, and Snow White.

I seriously thought bri has some funky wig on...but then I looked closer and saw that it was the plant behind her head :)

I think every princess has a magic wand- at least around here she does! Of course, it's called a 'boppity boo' to Leila!

Oh my cute cute pictures below Ash. They are so gorgeous. I love Bri even though I never see her! She cracks me up and is so cute. And you guys look great. I see a resemblance to your mom I've never noticed.

that third picture up from the bottom!!! Oh my gosh, Don might have to start dressing that way and answering the door with a rifle in about ten years cause the boys are gonna just camp out on your lawn

What a beautiful Snow White! Also, I was VERY happy to see that I can count on you and Don to dress up for Halloween. With planning Jake's costume and the kids' immediately after vacation, I forgot to make a plan for me. So, I grabbed one of several choices that I just had on hand. I think that there were a couple people at our ward trunk or treat who didn't understand that a grown woman has costumes on hand for a costume emergency....
The 70's cop idea was awesome. Jake was Mr. Belvedere.

Wow I think that costume might beat out the valley girl costume he wore in 8th grade. (NO I don't have pictures of Don dressed as a valley girl but it was classic all the same)
