H. A .Double L. O. W. Double E N!

This year's creation. Nothing special, but it is such a fun tradition.
Hyrum was a firefighter.... let's just say his outfit was a cheap creation by me. And didn't last long on Halloween.
Adelaide wore Hyrum's six month outfit (at ten months) and had the pants up to her knees. She was a sweet little bee though.
The kids at mom and dad's.
Seeing the witches.

Halloween was fun. I helped plan a party with a relief society sister for those who are less active. We had a lot of families come. Then I forced, yes forced, Hyrum to go down two long streets. He threw a fit every two houses or so, but I persevered! I was proud of myself, because dealing with him makes me want to turn him into a toad sometimes. He ended up with a lot of candy that we will be eating for weeks and weeks.

So fun! I can't believe Hyrum hated Trick-or-Treating!!!! He'll learn.... :) The kids look divine in their costumes. :)

Did you tell Hyrum that you needed this candy? That you cannot get it for yourself? That this is his one night a year to make up for all he has done to you all year? Really, I think this kid needs a "come to Jesus meeting" about the true meaning of Halloween.

Laura,
This is a friend, who never knew what you have been going through untii I logged onto Brita's blog and stumbled across your blog. My heart aches for you. I want to put my arms aroud you. I cannot believe I had no idea. I remember coming up to you in church, after your beautful daughter's birth and acted so excited for you and your hubby; even though he was not with you. You lacked excitment in your response and I just assumed you were tired. I guess it proves I am not in any gossip chains. I consider my self alone in a group!!
I would love to e-mail you, if you would send me your e-mail.
