Happy Halloween

Halloween was so much fun for the boys this year. We started by carving the pumpkin of course. It took a few minutes for them to get past the gross feeling of the pumkin "guts" and Brayden actually gagged with the first whif - it was so funny! Eventually they really got into it though and had a blast cleaning it out. Here is the finished product.

Halloween night we took the boys to the Queen Creek annual Trunk-or-Treat and it was packed!

We couldn't even get Brayden to look at the camera - he was in awe. A real Storm Trooper!

There were lots of kids activities sponsored by groups in the community so the boys got to play some games to earn candy. Then for the Trunk-or-Treat portion there were about 40 cars in the parking lot and the boys were hooked up! Their bags were so full! But the best part of the night was seeing the Storm Troopers and C3-PO. Since Tarell was Darth Vader the Storm Troopers would even solute him when they saw him and he would salute right back just like it was normal. It was so funny!

Their favorite activities were the cow milking contest and the pumpkin put.

This is definitely going to be a yearly tradition - it beats traditional trick-or-treating!

That sounds like so much fun. I guess one of the perks to living in Queen Creek. When is your calendar open for a get together? Ours is pretty open. Let me know.

What a fun time! The jack-o-lantern was great! I hope it survived better than both Laurel's and Amy's did. Oh well, we all go back to the earth!
Don't forget to tell everybody to VOTE!!!
