Trunk or Treat!!

Friday night was our church "Trunk or Treat" and Halloween carnival. We had so much fun! I've never been in a ward where so many adults dressed up! I'm going to have to step it way up next year! ;) The boys came home with more candy than they could eat in a lifetime...I may just have to help them with that! ;)

I decided to dress up an hour before we left and "cowgirl" was all I could come up with from the clothes in my closet...like I said I have to step it waaaay up next year! The boys look great though...Logan(mummy), London(robot), Carson(Spiderman)


How fun is our Bishop dressed as Mr. Incredible?



Rico as Captain Jack Sparrow...or "Black Jack" as he referred to himself! ;) He cracks me up!

Kellie as Mary Poppins...she made her purse herself! Loved all of the details in her costume!

Logan loved that his heart and ribs lit up!

Weston and the boys decorated our "trunk"...looks pretty scary if you ask me! ;)

Weston handed out the candy and London couldn't keep his eyes off the spiders that would jump down from the roof when people walked by! Logan picked out our ghost...he had fun since I don't really decorate with spooky stuff in the inside of our house.

We're looking forward to next year!

May The Force Be With You.....

This year the boys wanted to do a Star Wars theme for their pumpkins. Easier said than done! It was a lot of intricate cutting, but they turned out fantastic! Good thing Weston is an artist...I usually let him take charge of the carving while I'm in charge of picture taking and cleaning up! I did carve the "Star Wars" logo pumpkin for London and I'm sure London probably could have done just as well himself. In my defense I did free hand it! ;)

Getting the guts out!

London had the smallest pumpkin, but the most guts!

Poking holes to make the pattern.

You can start to see the picture.

Very carefully carving along the pattern.

The finished product!

Logan did Anakin, London(me) Start Wars, and Carson had the Clone Trooper...I think they turned out great boys! Good Work!
