Trick or Treat

What a fun halloween. After a day of pumpkin carving, volleyball and soccer we enjoyed the evening with neighbors. A good friend, Allison, and her sweet husband Grant hosted their second annual halloween party, affectionately referred to as "Boo in the Brooke". Our neighborhood is Stone Brooke Crossing, hence the name of the halloween festivities. They have the perfect house to host said party, the live at the end of a street that backs to the middle school football field and tennis courts so lots of run for kids to run and play and to set up pizza, drinks and of course CANDY! It's alot of fun to socialize with neighbors and get to see all the fun costumes in kids both young and old. My favorites this year were done by Stephanie. She created costumes for her family and her neighbors and they were the flintstones. It was super cute.

I volunteered to take my kids and Katie and Mason around the neighborhood. We headed out at 7:00 and returned home at 9:00 with about 100 lbs of candy. Way more than any household should have especially one where the mom loves just about ALL candy. I'm trying to talk the kids into sending it to the troops overseas and keeping a handful of their favoirtes but they aren't biting. I also told them that the "Great Pumpkin" would come halloween night and take their candy but I guess I waited to long to spring that on them as they just rolled their eyes at me. Like really mom, we are 9 and 11 and there is so not a Great Pumpkin. Let alone some of those other characters you try to pass off on the holidays. Ha Ha!

Anyway enjoy the photos of our day and evening:
