Halloween Night

Princess Cinderella at her Preschool Party...it was lots of fun!

Daddy and Maddox The Dragon

The Gang...they all pooped out pretty fast!



Yes, that's me, and yes, my hair is DARKER!! (No, I didn't dye it just for Halloween, but for everyday.)

This particular house goes all out every year...its spooktacular and full of fright!



More fun!!

We have candy to last til next year. I heard of a great way to help get rid of your kid's candy if they seem utterly attached:
Before they go to bed at night, have them pick out how ever many pieces for how old the child is. Have them set the bucket of candy on their night stand. Then tell them of the Candy Fairy, who comes and takes the candy to give it to other little kids who couldn't go trick-or-treating that night b/c they were too sick to go. But because of the childs' kindness, the Fairy will bring a special gift. After your child falls asleep, replace the bucket of candy with a special toy. This helps save on trips to the Dentist and you don't have to feel guilty about dumping it in the garbage!!

I love the candy tip. Trick or treating can be so fun. Bryanna looked beautiful as a princess and sweet Maddox as a dragon. Thank goodness he still fit!

The kids look adorable, and that house is awesome. I love it when people decorate like that. I saw that apple post and began salivating. Oh, how I love a Stacy apple. I enjoyed your political post. Even though we aren't in complete agreement, I like seeing what you think, and don't worry, my vote won't matter anyway. Utah will go McCain. I'm very interested in your recipes. I plan to try the ginger cookie one soon. I LOVE ginger cookies, which reminds me, I SO loved your cookie exchange. I'm going to host one this year. Also, love the new look and the beach pictures are beautiful!

What a surprise - Brianna wanted to be a princess for Halloween? It's not like she even had to dress in something other than what she would wear on a regular basis!

Chrissy said...
