Happy Halloween!

This year I was finally brave enough to actually carve pumpkins with the kids. We did it for family home evening and I am not sure if the kids had more fun or Ken. :) Sadly, with the weather being warmer, our pumpkins did not last very long before we had to throw them away. I guess we'll know better for next year.

Peyton carved this happy face by herself and Trevor carved a one-eyed pirate.

Of course I had to do the quartet of singing ghosts!

The kids had a lot of fun planning their costumes this year. Morgan chose to be Link, from her favorite video game, Zelda. Trevor wanted to be Harry Potter. And thanks to our amazing friend Jen Hansen, he had the coolest wand EVER! Peyton was a princess (although that is not very different from her everyday) and Cooper was a Frankenstein.

Friday night, Ken and the kids (minus Peyton since I stayed home with her because she was sick) attended the community safe halloween night at the middle school and had a blast! Trevor came home with over 25 pairs of vampire teeth -- he was in heaven. On Saturday Ken and the kids went to the trunk-or-treat at the church and got plenty of candy. (I was making the most of the beautiful day by painting the fence.) Then we had some awesome friends over to hang out. On Sunday we decided to forgo the trick-or treating, especially since Ken was on his way back to DC, and we hunkered down to eat candy and watch a family movie.
