Our Halloween...

Here is a quick recap of our Halloween Celebrations. We had a few. First up would be the Preschool Playgroup. I am in charge of this group for one of our Enrichment Activity group things??? That being said, I don't really do it. But I felt a little guilty having not done anything for over 6 months, so a Halloween party was prepared with playtime, decorating cookies, and scavenger hunt.
I guess the reason I am in charge is because my kids make up more than half of the group. Thanks to those that came! It was a good time.

The next celebrations was trick or treating at Trent's work. We do this every year. The kids get so much candy there that we really wouldn't have to do any 'real' trick or treating. Maybe I will try that next year...
Here is the whole family of ZOMBIES! I love their costumes and makeup. They just look so cute and spooky.

Since most of the Jensen's work for DFCU, all the cousins end up trick or treating there. Megatron, Optimus Prime, and a little ballerina joined us for the fun.

On Halloween night went out to Jensen's for a Halloween party. We had some good, good food, and the kids got a ton more candy. I really don't know what we will do with all of it.
None of the kids were that excited about getting their picture taken. And, the picture of Trent and I is from the party we went to the week before. I just didn't have the energy to do my makeup and hair again. I guess I really didn't have the energy to undo my hair again. That rat's nest was a pain to get out.
Hope you all had a great Halloween!

Ha! I can't believe your kids account for more than 1/2 the preschool class! I love all the makeup work you did on everyone - they all look really freaky. And I am totally digging all the girls' hair!

Well, you guys officially get the award for funnest parents ever. You're so fun that you got dressed up with your kids. I'm such a dud. And I'm still dying over watching your little "zombies" parading around DFCU. I'm picturing little Paige (or was it Morgan) waddling along in front of me and it's making me laugh. So, so cute! I'm sorry we didn't get to see you on Sat. night.

Love the costumes! Is it possible for zombies to be cute??? Well, I think your kids are cute no matter what. I already can't wait to see what you do next year.

The weekend was lot of fun. Thanks for trick-or treating with us. The boys always love to be with your kids. I am sure your girls are the cutest ever.

I love the costumes! Where do you get your energy? Way cute! Or I guess I should say way spooky! :)

Wade Family said...

Good times! Love the costumes...are those real clothes you cut up? So, you are super creative. Every year I love seeing what you come up with. I can't even imagine how much work it must have been getting everyone ready but it had to have been worth it because you all look great! I didn't know you are in charge of play group if you have any ideas throw them this way. At least you have 5 kids that make up half of the playgroup I have 3 and we are usually half of ours too! Glad you all enjoyed Halloween!

Gosh--you guys were scary except litle blue eyes with no make-up on the end!!

Love the zombie family!!

Cutting up all those clothes looks like so much fun! What a great idea! I got my snowman kit on Ebay, but if you search you can find them other places. Just do a search for snowman kit...just add snow...etc. If I come across a good one, I'll send you the link.
