I love Halloween! It's my favorite holiday. We got to do a ton of fun stuff this year so I thought it would be easiest to just put it all in one post. So here it goes...
Oct. 18 - Wee Witches Night: While Brian and I were on the deer hunt Bauer stayed with his grandparents. Grandpa and Grandma Williams took him to the Witches Festival at Gardner Village with Jared, Marty, Aspen, Heidi, Suzzi, Morgan, and Marki and he had a blast! They got to decorate pumpkins and had their picture taken in Suzzi's photobooth (check her out at http://www.smilenowphotobooths.com/) They went to Tepanyaki afterwards for dinner and then had birthday cake for Aspen.

Oct. 25 - Pumpkin Carving and Thriller: Every year the Anderson side of the family has a pumpkin carving party. Bauer and Brian got to go this year and had a great time carving pumpkins. They left with 2 pumpkins and came home with 4. Score!

Every year my family also goes to Thriller. Usually it is just the girls that go but we convinced my dad to go with us this time. He felt a little out of place with all the girls but he still liked the show and we all had a great time.

Oct. 26 - Bliss Party: The annual Bliss Halloween party includes a spooky dinner - worms with blood sauce and eyeballs (spaghetti with meatballs), bones (breadsticks), spooky punch (a green mixture), and worms in dirt (chocolate pudding topped with crushed oreos and gummy worms); and pictures with all of the kids in their costumes. Kai and Grandpa also gave all of the kids pumpkin basket full of treats, a coloring book, a shirt, and some gloves.

Oct. 28 - Playgroup Party: Bauer's playgroup had a Halloween party where all of the kids dressed up in their costumes and they learned how to trick-or-treat.

Oct. 30 - Dinner with the Bawdens: We love to celebrate with our best friends, the Bawdens. Tonight we had a spooky dinner with a jack o'lantern pizza, bone breadsticks, and salad. Bauer and Paislee also got vampire teeth (corn) and bloody applesauce (applesauce with jam in it). Then Bauer and Paislee gave each other gifts.

Oct. 31 - Trick-or-Treating: Halloween day is always packed for us. First, Bauer gets to come to my work and trick-or-treat. Then we went home to the ward Halloween party where we had lots of fun games, activities, and food. Next we did a little trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. We usually go to visit the grandparents after trick-or-treating but this year Bauer was having a really rough night and was hurting so we just stayed home and hung out as a family. Bauer loved giving candy to the trick-or-treaters that came by.

Too fun sister, too fun. He was such a handsome pirate and looks like her had tons of Halloween fun. Who doesn't love Halloween? Honestly?

So the chain saw guys in Thriller really freaked me out. I was worried that they were going to come up where we were seated. I hate Chain saw dudes! It was way good dance production. Looks like you had a good Hallooween.
