This year our Halloween was filled with family and candy. We got to start celebrating on Saturday night at the Truck-or-Treat. Our ward combined with two other wards.This meant there were lots of cars ready to give out candy and lots of costumed kiddos.We parked our car right between Mom and Cousin Beqi's car. Mom was running the bean bag toss game that Emily and Andrew helped make. The next night was Halloween. Grandpa Bill, Grandma Ginger, Louise and Adele stayed back to pass out candy. (Sadly Adele was not feeling good enough to be out in the cold air-next year will be her year!) This was Fiona's first time out trick-or-treating and she was adorable. Louise says they practiced all day, and she racked in the treats! Here are Andrew (ninja), Fiona (Thomas), Emily (Cleopatra), Adele (Ladybug-which I will add is the same costume Em wore for her first Halloween-sigh) and Ryan the Dementor (From Harry Potter). Erik, Grandpa Dan, Ben and I walked the kiddos around the neighborhood. It was hard to keep up with Andrew...that kid can move, especially when there is candy involved.It is so much fun to get to spend holidays with cousins and friends, I can't think of a better way to spend the day.
