Halloween night!

We were able to end the day at Grandma and Grandpa's house for Navajo tacos and trick or treating!

My mom had to dress up for work so she fit right in with the kids =)

We were all soo exhausted and all on a sugar high by the end of the night but a blast like always!!

Halloween city walk!

I am always really excited about the Halloween walk, I think it is such a fun thing for the kids and they love it! This picture makes me laugh, they have some serious looks of determination to get that candy on their faces..

After the walk we headed across the street to see great grandma and great grandpa then went to lunch with them. After that we headed to Far Far's office to see him and Nana!

It was only half of a very busy eventful Halloween day but we were all sure having fun!

Cayden's school party

Cayden was really looking forward to his school Halloween party, it was probably just because it meant he got to wear his costume again =)

It was fun being able to come at the end and see him with his class..

Ellie was happy sitting and watching all of the big kids..

They played musical chairs..

This is one of Cayden's really good friends he made from school named Jayden..

Pumpkin Carving!

We finally got around to carving our pumpkins on the 28th. we always look forward to this family tradition and this year we let the kids decide what to carve. Every year Cayden seems to struggle with wanting to help clean out the pumpkin...

But then he starts to realize how fun it actually is..

Ellie was having fun just watching =)

Ellie went through this weird, I really like Hello Kitty phase, so we of course did that which she loved..I have to say this was probably the first time I actually carved the entire pumpkin myself and didn't need mikes handy hands to do anything =)

Cayden wanted an angry face and decided with this one..

Halloween Disney!

On 10/27 we spent a couple hours at Disneyland enjoying all of the Halloween decorations =) We also decided to do a few things we had never done before or for a long time.
We went on the Jungle Cruise which was Ellie's first time! She had that face about the whole time..

We were able to sit right next to driver which Cayden loved.

Enjoying some lunch!!

We had never taken Cayden to Tom Sawyers Island so we decided to go there!

Cayden was terrified of all of the caves and would NOT go in them, then we were finally able to convince him which was nice because then he realized how much fun they were to walk through..

He loved all of the things there was to do and the fun bridges to walk across, we could have spent all day there and he would have been happy.

Always have to go on the t-cups when there is no line!!

I knew this would be our last trip during Halloween for a long time since I knew we would not be renewing our passes, so I had to take it in one last time =(

Trunk or Treat!

On 10/25 our ward had it's Trunk or Treat! This year I thought I would take advantage of Ellie not having an opinion about her costume and decided to have it go with Cayden's. Obviously trying to find a semi-cute/cheap dalmatian costume was not possible so I made one! I don't have a lot of confidence in my crafting skills so I tried my best but have to say it didn't turn out so bad!

It is so fun being in the same ward as your best friends =)

My parents as well as Mikes and his sister and daughters were all able to make it as well which made it even more fun! Ellie just went with the flow on the whole trunk or treating thing and realized how fun it was getting a bunch of candy!

Cayden was way to quick and having to much fun with his friends but I know he had a blast doing it too!

Had to release the sugar high somehow!

Pumpkin Palooza

Cayden was SO excited to go to his school's pumpkin palooza! I am sure most of the excitement was coming from the fact that he was able to wear his Costume. He was also able to go with his best friend who also happened to be a fireman =)

The kids were able to pick out their own pumpkin which they loved and they also had this fun bounce obstacle course.

The boys loved it!

Cayden was able to get his face painted for the first time! He asked for a spider..

they had several booths with games and every time they were able to get a candy/prize

They made a wooden scarecrow..

Ellie was soo good and just sat in her stroller while Cayden was able to enjoy all of the fun things! After we were done we headed to the playground..
 Ellie is usually terrified of slides and rarely even bothers to play on playgrounds but the boys were able to give her some confidence and she actually went down one!

They all had soo much fun!!
