I sure do love this holiday, which made it especially fun to spend the whole weekend celebrating! Jaxon had his Harvest Party at school on Friday, and then we went to Jake’s work to see everyone in their fun costumes. Don’t they look great? Jake wore his stand-by costume, Clark Kent. He looks good in it, it works.
We then headed over to Ihop for their free pancakes. I even got one for Hazel. Then we decorated the back of the van and got ready for our ward trunk-or-treat. But not before taking some super cute photos of the kiddos.
A very excited witch
Awesome white ninja
Sage kept telling everyone that she was the good witch and I was the bad witch.
Hummm….not sure about that, but I did love our matching tights.
So Friday was a definate success. Next came Saturday. Sage had a birthday party in the morning, and as soon as that was over we went to the Outlet Mall for trick –or-treating. It was fun to spend time with friends.
We had Halloween pasta for dinner that night. But that was about it for Saturday. Oh, and our sweet little Gecko died on Saturday. Sad.
Sunday started our with a wonderful Stake Conference, and then a fun Halloween dinner. Thanks to Darilyn’s post, I didn’t have to come up with any of it on my own.
First we had Mr. Veggie Bones. I’ve never seen my kids eat so many vegetables. This will be a halloween tradition for sure.
And with all those leftover veggies, I made yummy Minestrone soup. It was fun having Halloween on a Sunday because I felt like I had all sorts of time to make dinner special.
And the most important part of this crazy holiday…….
(it’s always so nice when it’s over)
