Halloween stuff

  • Trunk or Treat as a cat and bat (inspiration was taken from the cute treat buckets from my visiting teacher).  I ate a luke-warm hot dog, which was probably not that smart...I think that's on the pregnancy "don't" list.  But I ate two bowls of nachos with delectable oozy cheese to balance it all out.
  • Fall Festival and Globe Christian Halloween Carnival.  At the festival, we ate bean burros from a local woman's booth, cupcakes from my booth, and candy from the Krazy Kone's stash for trick-or-treaters.  At the church, the kids played in the bouncy house and giant slide, and won some more candy tossing ping pong balls into floating bowls.  It's a little hard to see in the picture, but Mason's pants are soaked because he tripped and collapsed the side of the snap-up pool.  The free cotton candy was awesome too.  I gave some to Mason, and he just held it and looked at me like I had tricked him...this couldn't possible be "candy" of any kind.
  • It was really cool taking part in some of the events the community offers.  There were quite a few different things going on the two nights before Halloween.  One of these years I'd love to go through the haunted house in the old historic jail house, and take the Ghosts of Globe tour, where people stand on the corners downtown, dressed in old-fashioned clothes, and tell you old ghost stories about the area.  The best thing: it's all free.
  • On the actual night of Halloween, we put on our costumes to go to dinner at a friend's house.  Chad as an angel, and me as a devil.  Then as we were backing out of the driveway, Mason threw up all over himself, his bat costume, and his treat bucket.  So, I took Bree to the party, and Chad stayed home with the sick boy, who was running a fever.  I felt terrible, because Mason was standing there with puke all over him, saying, "I not throw up anymore.  Go to Levi's house?"  Poor guys.

Wo, wo, wo! Are you trying to slip the pregnancy thing by us again? ;O) Sneaky, sneaky! Are you trying to see if we don't notice? Well, if you are indeed pregnant, which I assume you are because who writes that if they aren't, then CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Truly! Can't wait to hear more about it!

Now as for Halloween it looks like you guys had a great time. Your kids are the cutest! Your cupcakes look incredible! So sorry Mason got sick. It is so sad when they get sick.

Sounds like a great holiday and a great community to live in! Yay, Globe!

Oh I wish I could have been there to hug my sweet Mason. I adore Bree and Mason. I can't wait to meet our adorable new grandchild.

Daddy and I are extremely blessed. As imperfect as we are, Heavenly Father still loves us.
