Halloween Extravaganza!

Our Halloween was underrated I think, after reading everyone's posts about how they took their kids trick-or-treating 4 times, to neighborhood parties, and on hay rides. We went to our ward trunk-or-treat and then went trick-or-treating on Halloween. And I still felt like that was a bit over the top! It was so fun, though to get Oliver all dressed up in his froggy outfit. We also made it out to our pumpkin patch, which turned out to be really fun. We babysat for a family in our old ward this weekend, which meant that we took Oliver, along with their 4-year-old and 2-year-old out on the actual night. It was fun to take the three little guys in their costumes.

This is Oliver at our ward trunk-or-treat with one of his little "girlfriends," Makenna.


Playing in the cornbox (?) at the pumpkin patch


This ride lasted about 2 seconds...

Oliver just learned how to say "cheese" when we take a pic, hence the staged smile. Posing in front of the pumpkin that I carved all by myself (Oliver was too grossed out and Christian needed to rest his wrist.)

Joseph, Henry, and Oliver on Halloween night. Oliver loved playing with these guys. Can you guess who Henry is for Halloween? I'll give you a clue. It's the main character in the worst movie this year, possibly in the last 5 years. (That thing in his right hand is a whip.)

Or Davey Crockett?

Thanks for sending the Halloween pics Rebecca. I loved them!
How did the babysitting go? Was it hard or not too bad? Was it worth it?

Sounds like Christian needs to exercise. Wrist getting tired? What kind of stamina is that? Oli looks so big/old in that pic on the fireplace. His hair looks really thick.

He was so cute in his froggy costume. Oliver does a great fake smile, I bet you're proud. I read your post about Oprah too, and I have to admit that I agree 100% with what you said. I don't know why, but something about last night just rubbed me the wrong way. He was almost at a "Godly" status or something. Why does it have to be so much about race? You know, he's just as much white as he is black... Well, now we really need to get working on our food storage... :)
