Happy Halloweeeeen

This time of year is so busy for us and it seems to get busier ever year. First we had Brody's preschool party. All his classmates were so cute all dressed up.

Then a night of carving pumpkins, I think we did five total. Our sweet home teachers brought us a pumpkin for each kid to carve. Since Embry was too big to fit inside a pumpkin this year (not really) and already had to do it last year (not very happy about it) she got to participate in the carving. Kenley and Brock did their own pumpkins (the actual cleaning out and carving part) this year and were very proud of the outcome.

Halloween morning started off with the making of treats for Dustin's office party. Witches hats and broom sticks. You can find the were I got the idea here.


The two younger kiddos and I went and had lunch with them and they all dressed up like this.

Dustin dressed up as a redneck, he actually had me paint his neck with red paint. Then off to Kenley's school Halloween parade. She was Hannah Montana and picked her costume from her closet. She loved getting all dressed up for her friends at school.

Finally it was time to TRICK OR TREAT. This year I vowed not to buy a single costume, so with one borrowed, one out of the Halloween past year costume box and two lets get creative with stuff we already have costumes we were out the door. (Brody did wear his mask trick or treating, I guess he just wanted us to know it was really him in the picture.) Kenley used her Hannah Montana guitar purse as her candy bag, I thought that was very creative.

When the bags were full we headed to Grandma and Grandpa Johnson's for our yearly Halloween picture. It's fun that all the Johnson cousins can spend some part of Halloween together. Aren't Thing 1 and Thing 2 just adorable?
