Well to start out, the day before Halloween we went to my brother and sisterinlaws ward's trunk ro treat. Trunk or Treat is where we go to the church building and the kids get to do trick or treating in the parking lot with everyone in our church. Everyone decorates their trunks and hands out candy. It is a safe enviroment where you know everyone and know that the candy and experience your family is having is a safe one, which I am thankful the church does this. Anwyays Libby was a lady bug and Keagan was a doctor (we just used his scrubs from last year).

In the morning the kids woke up to our little kitchen table decorated with some treats for them. About a month ago I had them pick out Halloween fabric at Joann's Craft Store and then didn't mention the fabric to them again and they forgot. I took that fabric and made them matching pajama pants, which I put in the brown paper bags. I also included the shirts they painted here. I also purchased them each a new Halloween book and some little candy favorites like PEZ. It was simple, but special and the kids really appreciated it. We then had a yummy pancake breakfast.
For Halloween night we had some friends and family over for a little Halloween party. We did it pot luck style. Everyone brought food to share and then the kids played some games like bobbing for apples (without water we didn't want to clean up them mess). It was a fun and yet again simple, but it was a great way to celebrate together as a family :>

After all the party guest left we got the kiddos all ready for bed, what we didn't expect was an hour long light/dance show with glow sticks afterwards. They kids were having such a blast we couldn't tell them no. Miss Priss especially was entertaining and just didn't want to stop. She kept asking if she could do one more dance.
