Oh wait, let me back up for uno momento and say......Maggie had a "fall festival" at school. And, well....let's just say I was SORELY missing Miss Ranelle and her rocktastic Halloween extravaganza that she put on for her preschool. This "festival" was tragic at best. In the classroom, with some anemic looking cookies to decorate, a sad little pumpkin painting station, some semi face paintig and then clean up, drink some warm apple juice, eat your cookie and listen to teacher read a story. SAD! On the upside, Max thought it was "great" that he got to go to Maggies school and hang out for a bit. So, at least there was that.
Alrighty then...Saturday night brought us to trunk or treat. We went to our old wards, and then made our way to my parents HUGE Halloween Carnival at their church. The kids had a ball, and we were all WORN OUT by the end of the night. This was the night Maggie chose to be Minnie Mouse and Max was, well, Super Guy. DUH!
I had to include this because it is SO typical Max. That kid is a crazy nutt.
This one because.....they're cute.
Maggie is such a little poser. You should see the others where she posed herself.
On Halloween, before we went out, we had a very special visit from Rapunzel. The kids were pretty excited. Look at Maxs face, he was so enamored.
Maggie chose to be the snow princess for Halloween Night. She looked lovely.
Max was Super Guy again, and Jere was Spongebob. Would you believe I failed to take even one pic of him? My bad! He looked pretty cute.
So, Jere came in and pouted and threw a big HUGE baby fit, insisting that I dress up. I told him "I DON'T DRESS UP. EVER." Why? he asked. Because, I HATE it. It makes me feel awkward. And it's OK if I don't. He would NOT back down. So, rather than listen to him cry about it all night and continue to throw fits, I put on a stinkin costume. Won't lie, I felt like the biggest retard EVER at first. But, by the end of the night, it wasn't so bad. Shhh, don't tell HIM!
Ok, so we went and trick or treated around in our old neighborhood for a bit, saw friends, and generally had a good time. Our friends Krys and Melissa brought their two girls and went with us. After we finished gathering free candy we went over to our new neighbors for a bbq on their driveway. It was soooo fun. Such a nice evening. The kids running around and playing and having fun, while we sat around and ate and visited. Don't judge....but it was 10:00 before we headed across the street to our house and I threw the kids into the shower and then bed. Pretty sure they were asleep before their heads fully hit the pillow. All in all, a fun and successful Halloween.
And finally.....I leave you with these gems. This beaute of a pic and costume idea was Jeres creation.

Anywhodle.....hope your Halloween was fantastical and fun in every way.
