we had our friend, amber vest, take our pictures for the third year in a row and she did not disappoint. she does a great job! and it's always such a relief to have these done for another year...or so. (;

this is halloween!

we had company for halloween this year, which is always fun! we had invited kevin's parents to the kids' church primary program which was the day before halloween. so they were able to come for the program and then stay a couple extra days and do halloween with us.

madalyn loved having grandma and grandpa around!

wesley before he went to preschool on halloween.

ready to trick-or-treat

wesley the black ninja

owen as CAPTAIN jack sparrow

madalyn as a witch

carolyn made us chili and then we headed over to the iona trunk or treat. there was a great turn out and it was fun for all. then we headed over to my parent's house to trick or treat. mom had a great set-up with yummy caramel apples and sugar cookies! the highlight of the night for sure.

you can always find my mom in her witch costume on halloween night, but this year she added "the chin". madalyn was not impressed! and VERY scared.

grandma and grandpa ward with the trick-or-treaters. such a fun time! thanks for coming and spending it with us!

halloween parade

owen's school does a halloween parade on halloween morning. it makes for a rushed morning, but the kids love it! madalyn and wesley also get to put their costumes on so that makes it EXTRA fun!

carson and owen

madalyn the witch

this is carson's big sister, paige. madalyn LOVES to hang out with paige and watch tv or play polly pockets. paige is so sweet to entertain her when madalyn sneaks over there with the boys.

i didn't get a picture of wes at the parade. sorry wes!

carving pumpkins

saturday night we finally got the pumpkins carved. we did it with one of our favorite families, the lowrys.

we had a good time! but, i am glad this is only done once a year. so much work! but the kids were proud of their jack-o-lanterns.


madalyn (don't you love her ghost sticker on her face...she LOVES stickers)
