This last week has been FULL of fun Halloween activities. I was afraid this year that my boys wouldn't get much use out of their costumes because Halloween fell on a Sunday, but I was wrong. Wednesday morning, the boys got to enjoy a party at story time with yummy food, lots of goodies and fun games.
Thursday was Carson's preschool party and I got to go and help out. They got to wear their costumes to school and the last hour they partied. They ate treats and rotated through bowling, fishing, and a cauldrine toss games, and then ended the day with a Halloween story by a sibling of a classmate.
Friday, the boys and I made caramel apples. We tried making "gourmet" apples this year that had caramel, white chocolate and cinnamon sugar sprinkels. They were pretty darn good and will probably be made again next year!
Saturday, was our Halloween Parade down town where the kids get the opportunity to trick or treat the businesses. I guess Carson was tired of being a ninja turtle because he decided the night before that he wanted to be a pirate that day instead.
After we were done down town, we ran home and loaded up our stuff and headed to Kearney for the weekend. Our stake conference was this weekend, so we made a weekend out of it and stayed the night. We shopped, enjoyed some good meetings, ate good food with fun people, swam and came home. It was a great weekend, but I didn't get a single picture!
