We celebrated Halloween with not one, but TWO nights of fun and candy!
The first was at our ward Trunk-or-Treat.
Months ago I asked Fox what he wanted to be for Halloween and he said a ghost. Ghost it is! So a few weeks ago I searched through pinterest and online to find the perfect ghost costume. I found THIS one and decided to model Fox's costume after it.
Essentially I took a white bedsheet, cut a hole in the middle for the head, two slits for arms, and then made slits all the way around from the bottom almost up to the head hole. Gotta love the ol' bedsheet-turned-ghost method! Simple as that!
Jane just dressed up in cute Halloweenie gear, much like last year. Cutest little witch I ever did see!
We arrived at the church, parked the car, popped the trunk, and got to decorating! I'm still using props I made for Fox's 1st Halloween Birthday Party.
Some of the other creative cars.
No light = blurry people = perfect for Halloween! Spooooky!

It's all in the details.
Trick or treat!

To break up the two nights of ghosts, ghouls, and goblins, here's a little interlude of 20 interesting things about, or related to, Halloween that I found on The Pioneer Woman's blog:
There are set trick-or-treating hours here in the town of Netzaberg - a government owned neighborhood in Germany.
He was going a mile a minute and kept saying "NEXT!" after each house. Your wish is my command!
Giant blow up cat! Trick or treating. Fox doing his thang. Awesome balloon archway, I'd love to know where they got all of them blown up!
It's been two days since Halloween and Fox is still asking to go trick-or-treating every 5 minutes. I think it's going to be a long year until next Halloween, ha!
Holidays just keep getting better and more fun as the kids get older! It's so fun to live vicariously through our children.
