Happy Halloween

Yesterday was Halloween and we had a fun day. Henry dressed up as a fireman and loved it. He actually wore his costume all day Tuesday AND all day Wednesday. Ella was a penguin and only wore her costume at the actual parties that we attended(it was pretty warm and not very car seat friendly).

First we went to Adam's work for a Halloween open house. Everyone decorated their cubicles and passed out candy to the kids. Adam had a theme with his desk and costume - a work theme. It was very clever and creative, which is no surprise, since Adam is clever and creative. I mean - would you expect anything less? There are 3 pictures showing his cube. He had poetry and birds and a game and everything.

I dressed up as a mom who actually got ready for the day, since that isn't my strong suit these days... :)

After Adam's work party we hurried home, finished our chili for the ward party and ran to the ward party a little late. They had a chili cook off and we entered our sister in law's (Lindsey) yummy recipe. Unfortunately we didn't win, but it was fun to sample other chili's. You know, we've been making our own chili for years now and I am actually pretty happy with that one. Lindsey's is great, too. It's nice to have a new recipe to try.

Adam took Henry around trick or treating to the rooms at the church and he said it was quite the adventure with MANY kids running around those halls.

Henry got a lot of candy and Adam and I ate some of it last night and other than that I'm not very excited about having so much candy here. Henry loves candy and wants it whenever he sees it. And as for me - I have absolutely no control when it comes to sweets, as most everyone knows. Adam was nice enough to take a bunch to work so now we have a little less here.

All in all in was a fun day.

What cute costumes!! I'm with you on the candy...we only went trick-or-treating around like 2 blocks (WY blocks, not jam-packed UT blocks...), but between that and all the parties, etc. -- YIKES they ended up with a lot of candy. I think I need to find a way (other than eating it myself) to make it disappear...

Yeah, halloween candy is a tricky thing. I remember when I was growing up we used to have it all year long because none of us would eat it. Although, Sarah Presley loved to come over and eat it - she was a candy girl. But the thing is I don't want to have it all year long! I like the chocolate stuff, but other than that, blah. Henry will take any of it, though, which is not a good thing!
