The night before Halloween we went to Dixie College to go Trick or Treating around the football track.  Every year all of the sports teams have a trunk or treat station and they give out candy to the kids in the community.  Last year they actually won an award from the NCAA for their service in the community.  It's pretty neat.  So we met the Wells clan there and had fun.

 This is my friend Emily Holt and her cool costumes that she made for her family.  She is in the pink one. 
 On Halloween day after Shayne opened her letter I got the boys ready and took them back to school just in time for the traditional costume parade.  Each class walks around the track so they can show off their costumes to everyone else.  This tradition has been going for over 30 years!  Here are my vampires.

Here they are later that night with makeup on and ready for the candy .

 Sophie is a blast from the past.  80's.  Thanks to Shayne and Sadies 2010.  And Josh is a scary clown that rides a unicycle.  Which is pretty impressive considering those HUGE plastic shoes he had on were really slippery.

Here are the scariest costumes yet. Every year we head over to Jillyn's house to celebrate her birthday.  She always has sandwiches, chips, fruit, cookies, treats and her famous sunshine punch.  It's a great way to start off the night.

 Lauri, James and their 2 adorable little girls were up for Halloween too.  We make quite a crew don't we?
Joel went as a Tropical Paradise - see the pair of dice around his neck?  I went as a Tropical Depression - I had a bottle around my neck that said PROZAC on it.  HAHA! Get it? Oh man I think I'm funny.
One last picture with JoEllen and her minions.  
 After we left Jillyn's we went to our Ward's Halloween party.  Sophie and Josh had to help set up and the YW and YM were in charge of the games so they missed out on Jillyn's.  The ward had chili, games and trunk or treat.  Then we went to JoEllen's so Sophie and Josh could actually go door to door and get a little candy.  It was lots of fun and now that it's all cleaned up we can concentrate on what we are thankful for.  I am thankful that Halloween is over even though it is super fun.  The kids are thankful for all the candy and Mason is thankful for all the cavities it will cause.
