I like holidays - all of them.
I like to decorate and do cute crafts with my kids that go along with the holiday.
And I love the traditions that go along with all holidays - even Halloween.
I don't get all crazy about costumes.
We just use what we have - and we have a lot to choose from.
Tanner decided about 5 minutes before the trunk or treat what he was going to dress up as, and I love that he and Dave love to dress up.
I learned years ago that the time and stress involved in creating amazing costumes that all match just ruins the fun for me.
My kids don't ever complain - in fact their favorite part of Halloween is watching "The Ghost & Mr. Chicken" and eating pizza.
They go to the ward trunk or treat and they go trick-or-treating on the streets near our house, but they don't get a ton of candy and they eat less than they get. We're not big candy eaters over here.
I stayed home this year with a sick baby making pizza (yummy chicken bacon alfredo pizza!).
Akayla & Corina had homework to do, and they took care of the door.
DRIVE-IN HALLOWEEN MOVIE
We had a fun Halloween activity at the younger kid's school the Friday after Halloween - a drive-in movie with a costume contest and car show.
Each child was supposed to dress up and bring their own cardboard car creation.
We had some good ones.
Dave found 3 matching boxes and created this bus for our 3 girlies in about an hour.
He's pretty much awesome!
The girls brought pillows & sat nice and comfy the whole movie.
I was in charge of the activity and I thought it was pretty darn fun.
We had tons of popcorn and pop, and bags of candy were passed around.
Unfortunately, there was quite a mess to clean up afterwards, and all the kids were really wired up!
No biggie - Halloween is only once a year!
