Happy Halloween!!!!

Happy Halloween! I don't know why I love Halloween so much but I do! I have to admit that I miss the craziness of the few hours before getting ready for trunk or treat or trick or treating or whatever Halloween activity we were doing that night. From getting the kids ready early in the morning in their costumes, treats in tow for their class parties, to fixing the costumes and re-doing makeup and finding a fun but easy dinner (because they HAD to eat something healthy before they got all that candy). I miss them sitting on the floor with HUGE piles of candy trading with each other and pulling out a few special ones that they knew were mom and dad's favorites. Fun times!

This year I made a SPOOKY book with pictures of my kids when they were little in their Halloween costumes. Everyone had fun looking back at all the crazy costumes and remembering different things from those nights. I am SO glad I put all the Halloween pictures in one place. It will be fun to pull this book out every year. I may even shed a tear or two. I have some REALLY good blackmail video of Cory in his BUG suit crawling around on the ground and being CRAZY when he was 5. That will always be good for a few laughs!

Halloween just isn't the same without little kids at home but I am looking forward to all the little ones that will come through my office today at Midwestern and that I will see at our ward's Trunk or Treat.

Oh that spooky book is so cool. What a cute idea to put all of the Halloween pictures together in one album.

How the heck do you make such cool things?? That is so neat. But of course I wouldn't expect anything less from you..
You guys are welcome to come hang out over here tonight & see our kids..

The book is so cute...what a great idea! That would be so fun to put together! I agree...Halloween just isn't fun with big kids...Nathan has a football game tonight, Kayty has to work (Party City - busy down to the end). I was going to make "dinner in a pumpkin", but there is no one going to be here to eat it!!! I need more grandbabies in town!

You really are the best at scrapping and crafting girl. I just wish I could do half of what you seem to do. Love it all. Happy belated Boo day.
