Rachel and Lucy dressed up as Thing 1 and Thing 2 again this year because I love their costumes. Batman and Supergirl were part of our crew as well.
Adam was so proud of his pumpkin. He wanted a picture taken by himself, so of course, I obliged. "This is going to be the best picture ever!"
Take a look at that blue sky. The weather was absolutely perfect.
We went to the Loosli's house for the 2nd Annual Neighborhood Halloween Parade and Dinner. There were a total of thirty kids and thirty adults. The games started at five and the parade started at five-thirty, with dinner afterward. I am noting that here because we had a hard time remembering what we did last year.
We took these four kids from our ward with us:
The kids played some Duck, Duck, Goose:
Bobbed for apples:
And had lots of fun with their friends.
Oliver, Lucca, Adam:
Kaleigh & Taylor:
Olivia, Eliza, Rachel:
We paraded down the street two blocks and then back, stopping for candy along the way:
Paul and Celina passed out candy at our house:
I just decided that I want a picture of me and Steve standing in front of our house like this one:
I bought this mad scientist costume for Steve, but he informed me that he doesn't not dress up at work. So I was happy to let our neighbor, Ashton, borrow it.
The kids posed for another group picture on the stairs:
Lucy just about died when she saw the Only in Ogden photographer, Bryan Smith, walk up. "He combined my two favorite things: PURPLE and BUGS!"
Do you suppose I can talk these two into being Thing 1 and Thing 2 again next year?
If I succeed, I will also try to get them to wear their wigs correctly.
We also went to the Trunk-or-Treat at the church, to a few houses around the neighborhood, and then to Sonora Grill. We dropped off the Jiminez kids and were back home by 8:00 pm, which must be a record.
Rachel kept saying funny things. She told me they went to Sue's house (while I was in the car with a couple of cold kids). "Some of the lights were off, but we could see them inside having a party. All of the big names were there: Sue, Shalae. . . "
Rachel also told me she was going to pass out candy at our door and act like an adult, "So what do we have here? A cute little pirate. And oh, my, you sure are a spooky-looking witch." But she actually just held out the bowl and said, "Take as many as you want."
