FAB-U-LOUS.Apparently in AZ, Halloween is just an excuse to have a tail gate party IN YOUR FRONT YARD. I can't say that I blame 'em. The temp was amazing (82 degrees while Trick or Treating) the houses are close together and EVERYONE is CELEBRATING! PAR-TAY! I think, as we speak, my neighbors are all still outside with the girls dancing to some Disney Remix CD (think Hanna Montana/Selena Gomez rock out party), the boys chasing each other with Nerf guns and the parents..... happily drinking, of course.
We partied with some LDS neighbors with Chili and Chicken Noodle Soup (Have you ever had Chili in 89 degree weather? I have.... now, several times) and Abby came home a few hours later and a few THOUSAND pounds of candy heavier. Jaxon wasn't the hard core Trick or Treater that he has been, tiring after only 5 or 6 houses. I found out later that he was worried about getting lost in the dark, and not being able to find his way home. He was much happier when Daddy took him out later and held his hand up to all of the doors. (Fine by me) Wade was the happy helper and handed out candy to all of the kids that came up to the drive way (again, NO ONE is behind their door and if YOU are, chances are people think you aren't handing out candy!) Here are the pix for the Grandparents! ENJOY! Our happy pumpkins... Jaxon's attempt at the Joker or maybe just a happy Pig? (just kidding) Abby, I can't say (cuz I'm not sure) and Peter did Wade's pumpkin.....Here is a highly sugared Spider-man. A HAPPY spiderman! (And a happy daddy)The little black cat.. she LOVED this. I LOVED it too because it took all of a 5 second stop at Target. Optimus Prime...(What would Halloween BE without Optimus Prime?)
AND a HAPPY PUMPKIN.
Spiderman's sugar buzz finally wore off.
