Halloween Days 2, 3, and 4!? No Joke

So, like I said before, Halloween was a week long event for us. In fact, Eva exclaimed, "This is the best week of my life!" I must admit, since I probably love candy more than any one I know, that I understand.
Day 2: Trunk or Treat with Sara. Samuel is blurry in a lot of my pictures. No wondering why.

Day 3: The kids didn't have school on Friday so they celebrated on Thursday. Eva's school did the parade thing. Eva was sweet and held my hand through almost the whole thing. I am going to be so sad when that ends. She kept asking when the parade was going to start. According to her a parade needs floats and people throwing candy. Her class did a mummy wrap. Sometimes I forget how much Eva likes to win. She hauled. Look how happy she was. For Samuel's parade he was so serious. Look how he is sitting and NOT singing with his class. Notice his gloves that I was so proud of. Well, when I picked him up from school we couldn't find them. His story kept changing... "I left them on the table, they are lost, they went down the toilet..." Guess which story I believe? The one that went like this: "I dropped them in the toilet and then they went 'round and 'round." Bad, I know, but I am kind of glad it wasn't our toilet.
We took a few shots in the back yard before we took off for the fourth (four days! Insane) and final day of Halloween festivities.
We stopped at my parents and my sisters on the way to Karl's work party. His work goes all out for this and all the employees that want to put a bowl of candy outside their office. When we didn't stop him, an unattended bowl of candy meant a free for all for Samuel. They had cookie decorating and apples in one of the conference room. Samuel actually ate an apple. Perhaps he does have some sense of self preservation. This little boy thought Samuel was really Speed Racer and was excited to have his picture taken with him. So cute. We went down to Orem because Karl had to teach so I took the kids to Courtney's neighborhood to trick or treat (yes, because we needed more candy). Her neighborhood was a utopia of happy kids running around. We need to move out of our ghetto.
15 pounds of candy later... phew, Halloween is over.

Looks like Halloween was a crazy week for you. Being a kid at Halloween is the best. They look like they are having a great time.

I hope you don't mind...I loved the pictures on your blog of your kids on the white background, so I did something similar of Jax and Gabs. Check out my blog and see what you think. Thanks for the great idea. :)

I can relate to all the craziness. However, it looks like you got everything done and your kids had a blast. I probably say this every time I comment, but your kids are adorable. I really miss seeing you. I see April all the time, but I never see you. We should get together some time.

Sounds like your Halloween was as busy as ours with every thing going on. Way cute pictures. I don't know about you but I am a little sad it's over.
