And the winner is.......


Another fun and adventurous Halloween this year!

Our annual FHE of pumpkin carving resulted in lots of goop everywhere

(FYI: guinea pigs do NOT like pumpkin guts--we checked) and some amazing creations of art.....

The kids and Daddy all dressed up this year. Mom/Mindy's Mrs. Weasley outfit is missing, fess up! Who took it?!?!?!?!?! I can still do a good impersonation :)

BumbleBee--the Transformer

Zombie Cheerleader

Scream Freak

Alfalfa (with rotten teeth)

We attended the Ward Trunk-or-Treat Party at the church and enjoyed the games there and then handing out (mom) and getting (everyone else) candy. Then, Alfalfa took the gang and some friends out trick-or treating around the neighborhoods while mom went home to hand out candy to anyone who braved our closed road. Nobody came, more for me!

Next day at church, Jason won the best overall costume award for not only his outfit, but for his "campaigning". All night, he would gather groups of kids, young, impressionable minds, and tell them not to eat all of their candy at once, or their teeth would end up looking like his.

Poor kids, they were terrified and just stared at his mouth and solemnly promised that they wouldn't. One little girl even insisted later that night that she brush her teeth again, because she didn't want to look like Bro. Saari! Parents were grateful, maybe Jason should have been a Dentist.

It's beginning to look a lot like.....Halloween?


We woke up Halloween Eve to over 1 inch of snow on the ground with continued snowfall throughout the rest of the day. The kids were all excited and Jaden even got to play in the snow while Jaina suffered through getting her hair brushed.

The snow was gone by the end of the day, but it was pretty and very cold!!!

Don't worry, Halloween Day warmed up quite a bit and we only needed jackets that night for trick-or-treating.

Weird weather!

(see the mountains in the background? Aren't they gorgeous?!?!?!?)
