This is how my Halloween Saturday went. Zach comes over at 10 am. He makes me and Eric a scrumptious waffle breakfast. Then Zach has plans for me to make his Halloween costume. He wants to be a sock monkey. I thought it was a cool idea so I agreed. We got all the supplies and I went to work. I spent the rest of the afternoon making this puppy!... or should I say monkey.
I am happy how it turned out. Then we get an invite to Clara's halloween/birthday party. The party was at Katy and Justin's and it was a pleasant surprise to find out that all my family/nieces/nephews are in town!!
Eric and I went trick or treating with all the kids and I had a BLAST! I can't wait until I can take my own kids trick or treating. I took Vivi through a haunted house that one house set up in their garage. Props to them... it was awesome... I think I was more scared than Vivi:) I also made Katy, my scaredy cat sister-in-law through. p.s. The gated community by Justin and Katy's home gives out king size candy bars like crazy.
Oh yes, and I can't forget to mention our totally awesome ward Halloween Party. Eric and I didn't dress up because we went straight from his inter mural soccer game. He was a "dirty soccer player." We were thinking about being a deer and hunter, but we are so glad we didn't because there were TWO COUPLES who came as bambi and a hunter. It's just an easy idea when you already have camo. This Halloween was great because last year I was on a hunt so I didn't get to do all the games, parties, pumpkin carving, and other spooky holiday festivities.
Also: Props to pop corn and cotton candy couple at my ward party... props to Obama and Michelle couple at my ward party... they looked legit.... and props to the couple two doors down who finally took the Chucky doll down from their window. I was scared for my life every time I had to walk by it. (My BF's out there know that was like my biggest fear growing up)
