Halloween 2010

For Halloween this year the kids had their first party then we went to the 3 ward + a branch Trunk or Treat at the church.

Here is Nicole in her wedding dress...a beautiful bride.

 Matthew was an army guy.
 Ken was Charlie Brown.
 For our party we celebrated a lot of the holidays through out the year. First we made rest of the year resolutions.  The kids had to think of something they could do for the rest of the year to serve their families.
 For February they made valentines and put them in the stockings that were hanging off the kitchen counter for each of the kids. I forgot to take pictures of them.

For March we decorated shamrock sugar cookies. The recipe is AWESOME. I'll post it soon.
 Next we dyed Easter Eggs.
 For the summer months we talked about our love of camping and outdoors and then we roasted marshmallows on the stove.
 September was hunting season. They shot inflatable pumpkins with a nerf gun.
 November was thanksgiving. They are their cookies, eggs and we made bean dip with chips and salsa.
 We took random breaks between each activity to break out into random dances such as:
The Hokey Pokey
The Bunny Hop
The Cha Cha Slide
The Macarena
The Electric Slide
 More pumpkin hunting.

 Here's our group shot.

 Halfway through the party Nicole decided to change costumes. She'd been wearing the same thing for almost 4 hours! The horror!
 Here they are at the trunk or treat. It was the biggest one I'd ever seen. The WHOLE parking lot was full! Ken says maybe 150 cars. There is certainly no need to go trick or treating after that!
It was a fun day and I'm glad we have tomorrow to recoop from it before starting back to school on Monday! Happy Halloween!!
