This Halloween was super busy! The kids had an early out day, so the fun started earlier than normal. They got out at 1:50pm, and I began to help them get ready. Then I had to rush to a parent teacher conference with Braden's teacher, Mrs. Bricker. I got home and hurried to put on my stuff and finish helping the kids. We then headed to the downtown Fruita "trick or treat street" where Gary's office and a bunch of the other local business provide trick-or-treaters with treats from 3pm-5pm. We stayed there for about an hour, then rushed home to decorate our trunk for the church's "trunk or treat" party. I finished making homemade chicken noodle soup and then we went to our friend's house (the Dare's) for a soup dinner. Then we were off again to the trunk or treat parking lot of the church. The kids loaded up on candy like you wouldn't believe. I will admit, I totally overbought candy to pass out with the hope that there would be some left over for me to just keep. I purposefully held onto my Reese's Peanut Butter Cups until the end! I was able to have that whole bag to just keep at the house. Yum. I am glad I did that because most of what the kids got was tootsie rolls and such. Not as yummy. The kids hit a few streets on the way back from the church and then they were done.

|Kylee made a cute Dorothy! Thanks to my sister-in-law, Kristin, for letting us borrow it! It was my niece's costume when she was 14. Funny that Kylee fit in it perfectly. I thought for sure it would be too big but it worked out great.|
|Gary and I went as "Fruit Ninja's" (you know, like the app?)|
|Aubree and Savannah as Salt and Pepper. They were fun to watch trick or treat together!|
