Halloween continued

Before I can even begin to blog our fun Halloween night I thought I would finish posting about all of the other fun Halloween activities we were able to do. The cool thing about living in Utah is there are a million of fun things to do with your kids! Even though we missed most of October because of being in Peru, we were still able to do some fun stuff. I must say that we live in one of the best neighborhoods in the world! Everyone is amazing and so much fun. We have a very close neighborhood. Every year we throw all sorts of parties for the neighborhood. Jen (pictured above with me) always throws the neighborhood Halloween party at her house. It was so much fun!
Here is a picture of Hayden and Reese. They tease me everyday about scrapbooking. They are my really good buddies, but this was about as much of a picture I could get of them! (they don't want me scrapbooking any of them!)
Here is Sue with the kids playing games. They had all sorts of activities from playing games, frosting cookies, making crafts, coloring halloween bags, etc. It was fun. Me, Cal and Martin had just come from another Halloween party frosting cookies at Kirsten Wilcox's house (which I forgot my camera) so needless to say we brought home a lot of cookies that day!
They also had a room just for the little ones to play in (2 and under). Here is my friend Elizabeth playing with Martin. He had a blast playing with all the kids. I think there are about 8 different kids just in our neighborhood that is Martin's age. Cal has more like 10 his age. Lots of kids- it's fun!
Here is Cal working on his craft. He was making a skeleton.
The next day me, Libby, and Jen took all of our kids to the Hee Haw Farms. It was kind of silly place, but we had fun anyways. We went through the corn maze and found these really cool slides. The kids had a blast!
Cal also got to ride this little go-cart around. He really liked it.
After playing at Hee Haw farms we took the kids to Thanksgiving Point and got lunch. Then we went to the candy store and everyone got to pick out one candy. We had a good time! I love this time of year. From Halloween to Christmas- it is fabulous. Can't it be like this all year long? No of course not- because there wouldn't ever be a time to diet!!!!!!
I'll download our Halloween pictures soon and post them! Hope everyone had a fabulous time trick or treating (or whatever you did!)
