Halloween 2011

This year Halloween fell on a Monday, so we tried to make it fun, but not go crazy on candy or staying up late.  I am certain the kids teachers were thankful for our efforts!  We started out the morning with Halloween donuts for breakfast- they kids were so excited since we don't do donuts very often.  After they got home from school, it was time to get ready.  Caleb was Shawn White, Ian a Knight, Riley was a bride and Jaiden was Tony Hawk.  They had so much fun.  Our neighborhood gets tons of traffic, so Jaiden rode in style (much to his pleasure!).  We had fun, and the kids racked up.  There were two houses that Riley refused to go up to with out Matt or myself.  One happened to be our neighbor (and Riley's K teachers house).  I had to laugh, because she had watched Mr. Koehn set it up and was excited to go, but then reality hit and even though she knew who it was, I went with her.  All in all the kids had a great time this year, and we successfully avoided the scary costumes for another year!

I'm not sure which I love more - the awesome costumes, or the Fall leaves in the background of every picture! Sooooo miss all those changing colors!!! Glad to hear y'all had a wonderful (scary-free) Halloween!
