halloween festivities!!!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL!
I was planning on posting these two events on separate ocassions but as all of you probably understand things got heck-a crazy and sooo i decided to combine them.First this year to my great dismay ashlyn decided to be a fairy from a tinkerbell movie only moms with five year old girls has seen, but i let her decide and once again we ended up as a fairy princess thing. here's to hoping for next year! And i couldn't think of anything orginal for alysse soooo she was a boring ol lady bug however her costumes turned out to be alot cuter than i thought it would. so yeah. ANYWAYS..... On saturday we went to the ward TRUNK or treat...not to be confused with TRICK or treat. To shortly explain...it is held at our church and everyone decorates the trunks of their cars and the kids then walk around to each car and collect candy. It was super fun and the girls had a blast eating donuts playing little carnival games and getting little prizes.

The second event was halloween it's self..side note ashlyn also had a class party but i was a lame bad mom and didnt go so i have no pictures from that but ashlyn dressed up three days in a row so by actual halloween she was like again? But we went to a friends house and all brought yummy food...enter holiday weight gain, i think i am starting early this year! And then took the kids trick or treating in their neighborhood. it was awesome! everyone gave out full size candy bars...and chips was a big one this year. did anyone else get bombarded with chips? I also kinda forgot how fun it is to take a lil one on their first halloween outting. This year was alysse's first real halloween considering she was like four months old last year. and it is so much fun to watch her little eyes light up and she arent exactly sure why but people were handing her candy and no one was taking it away. she was screaming and smiling all night. All in all we had a great last couple of days and i am happy to say it is over and on with the holiday season. it is now onto making calendars, writing year ending letters, cleaning like crazy, buying presents, and some were in the middle trying to remind our kids (and ourselves) what the holidays are really about...i hope everyone had a great halloween and i cant wait to see all yout lil ones dressed up in their favorite super hero too....

She's a super CUTE lady bug and Ashlyn being a fairy princess again that's okay..because she looks so adorable in her wings and i dig the blue eye shadow on her! We didn't get any chips....weird that you did....i don't think I've ever gotten chips for halloween! Now onto the real holidays right!? :)

Okay so Candace I need your help. If you check out our blog, you will notice that I have posted our 4th year rotations. Dans has 2nd core (oct.-jan.) at DMC. So I am planning on being there with him for October and November of his core. We are looking for fully furnished apartments and I am wanting to put Madeleine into preschool for those two months while we are there. Do you know of any good preschools? If so, send me a link, prices, etc. Thanks a million! I am excited to be able to come out there and chill with you all!

I think your girls look super cute as always!!! I'm also glad you didn't mind that I borrowed "yours and Brittany's" idea of family pics in black shirts and jeans. I just thought it looked so nice and classic. Thanks for your input on the pics. I have no idea what I'm going to blow-up, display etc... What did you decide on your pics?

Oh my goodness, your girls look ADORABLE!! I am loving the lady bug. And no, we didn't get any chips either...we did get some mini bags of microwave popcorn though. I was kind of groovin' on that idea. :)

Well, I think the costumes are absolutely adorable! I want a little girl to dress up like a fairy, dang it!!!

Rob and Karina said...

Cute costumes, love the lady bug! Isnt it a shame that the holidays are so dang busy and so much harder to enjoy than when we were little. And we try to simplify, but really, it's like impossible. Oh well, I guess that's life!
