Halloween is here!

Our ward had a trunk 'r treat tonight. The kids went through the cars about 4 times!! We have so much candy it's crazy!
After the trunk 'r treat we had dinner at our friend's home - Clayson's. Here's a photo of the family! We decided we ALL needed costumes this year...Cosette was a ballerina, Isaac, of course, was Spider-Man, Ethan was a bat. Halloween just isn't the same as 15-20 years ago. Then, people would really decorate their homes and sit out in their garages with candy for the kids. Now, you have to walk past 8 dark houses before you find one lit up and willing to give candy to the kids. (Which is what we did.)

The month of October has come and nearly gone. Here are the boys fishing for grasshoppers in the living room.

We had a treat for Conference weekend, Grandma and Grandpa Poole came to visit from Texas. Uncle Alan drove up the same weekend from California to visit as well!!
The kids didn't want to just make cut outs of their pumpkins, they wanted a full decorating experience. Here is just the start of that adventure. Every square inch of Isaac's ended up with paint on it. Silly boys.
How can you have a beautiful fall day without caramel apples? We did a homemade variety for Sunday dinner. We all had tummy aches later!
