trick or treat!

the kids had a blast trick or treating with the cousins. i thought the little garden gnome costumes suited them well, with their pointy ears and chubby cheeks. nash refused to wear his beard, but they both did a great job of keeping their hats on, so i was happy.

nash pulled haven in the wagon for the first little while, but then realized she was slowing him down and ditched her. he was the cutest trick or treater ever-grabbing two candies at each stop. "i gotta get one for havey," he'd say, then he'd run to the next house laughing the whole way. he was in heaven and haven made out like a bandit with no effort!

trick or treat 1

i love this one of all (minus haven who was eating her candy in the wagon) the kids knocking on a neighbor's door-especially libby up on her toes:

trick or treat 2

the kids also took a trip to gardner village last week with grandma martin, who was in town (but we got snowed out!), and went to a ward party with grandma & grandpa anderson (but stevie and i were busy at another party, so i don't have pictures).

nash asked me today if he could wear his outfit. i'm not sure he even understood that he was in a costume!

anyway, so that was the first half of our halloween, more to come from the adult side of things once i get some pictures ready!

I love love love their costumes. They are the cutest little gnomes ever. Brian has a thing for gnomes so he will sure appreciate it. Did you make them? Love the pictures, especially the kids all at the door. Halloween really just gets more and more fun with kids. Sage was totally into it too running up to the door and knocking with Emery. It would have been fun to be there with you guys.

Oh, and about the gloves and scarf - it was freezing that night and I was the only smart one. Yes, with the Vegas wind and if you are at all wussy like me you can still wear a coat.

You're doing the costumes right. I love homemadey type costumes. You have cute garden gnomes.

note: these are not homemade costumes. believe it or not, they are from...i hate to say it...wal-mart. but they are surprisingly good quality-not that plastic crap that most store-bought costumes are made of.

Those are the cutest. If they came to my door, they just might get the entire bowl of candy.

P.S. Vegas is not too far, a visit might be in order :)
