Trick or Treat

Halloween was a great way to ring in this holiday season. I found it very funny that when I went to buy Halloween candy 2 days before Halloween, the entire section that had Halloween candy before, then had Christmas candy. One holiday at a time please! Having Caroline so excited for Halloween made it so memorable for Adam and I. I thought I loved holidays, birthdays, etc. before, but having a child has made it that much more enriching.
We had our ward trunk or treat Friday night and Caroline was a doctor/nurse, Adam was a doctor, and I was a patient. Caroline had her own name badge, which she loved. My costume wasn't very flattering (which wasn't surprising, it was a patient gown) and I realized that for sure when some of the girls in my Activity Days group came and said, "Is your belly really THAT BIG?" I loved saying, "Yes, we have a new little baby coming so soon!" When we were going through the family costume parade and voting, in the microphone Caroline introduced our costume by saying, "Push mommy, push." We don't know where she got that, but loved her creative title for our costume.
I especially loved Adam's costume because seeing him in scrubs reminds me of the first day we met. I was smitten...and still am.



This picture looks like we are at a cheesy portrait studio, but no, it's just the ward gym.

We went Trick or Treating on Auburn Street Halloween night. It was like a scene straight out of a movie. Lots of people everywhere, but not so many that you couldn't enjoy yourself. The homes on Auburn Street are beautiful and classy and I love to look at them. One home has served ice cream on Halloween for years so we were able to enjoy a sherbet cone on our candy journey. It hit the spot.
Caroline was able to show our Utah spirit that night, although we were not in Utah for the game. We were pleasantly surprised when some people would yell out, "Yea Utah" or "Utah Utes". Here she is with Avi and Eden (the darling witches) and cute Juliet.

Halley took this picture, but I had to post it because I can't get a good picture of this busy absolutely darling little Levi! I adore this kid and so does Caroline. If you say his name she scrunches her face, tilts her head and in a high voice says, "Oh Levi, he's so cute!"

How fun! I love what you did with the IMC name badge, that's awesome! What a fun neighborhood you must live in, we saw only three trick-or-treaters this year.

Why did it take me so much longer to be a RN than it did Caroline? Too cute!!

Be sure and let us know when Caroline and Levi are getting married. We need time to work out the details, make plane reservations, etc. We've learned that the earlier you do THAT, the cheaper your flights will be. Ha! It's great to see more pics of what was obviously a fantastic Halloween-away-from-home. We missed you here in Utah!
