Ward Halloween Party

We went to our fabulous ward Halloween party on Friday night. They kids were ultra excited. We've been compiling their costumes all week so they were excited to get them on.
Backpack as a lion. This is the same costume Trouble wore when he was 11 months. Our Goodwill $1 find!! He was practicing his roar. Couldn't you just eat this kid up!?!
Trouble went as a Monster Truck. He's loved Monster Trucks ever since we went to the that Rally. I saw this in a catalog for $50! So we saved a little money and made our own. He named it "The Blue Squid". We unsuccessfully tried to talk him into calling it Blue Cyclone (the name of Travis' old 1972 Chevy Malibu Station wagon....which would be more along the lines of the type of cars the Monster Trucks jump over).

Complete with flashing tail lights!
Dynomite went as a Fairy Princess. Last year's costume but with wings and wand. She has another princess dress that she'll wear next week. This one is from Yaya, the other from Grammy. What can we say, she's the first granddaughter on both sides!!

Our ward party was great! First they did a costume show. Cathy had all the kids say their name and what they were for Halloween
There were some very clever costumes. One guy was a 'baker' and his wife wore a shirt that had a 'bun in the oven', she's preggo! The tooth fairy was there giving out toothbrushes.

After the costume show we got to go to two different fun houses. One was scary for the older group and one was fun for the youngster. Then everyone migrated outside for Trunk or Treat.
When that wrapped up we went inside for the winners of the costume show.
'The Romans' were present! Or the official God and Goddess of our ward.
A picture of one of our favorite families:
I guess I didn't get a picture of our other favorite family, but they should know who they are :-)
Best adult costume goes to this bum: (Minot is in the area where he will be serving his mission, so look out for bums with a name tag and tie!!)
Cutest kids costume winner:
Honestly, this kid should get an award for the best impression. We asked him if his mom told him to pose like that...he said no! I just had to get a picture!!

We had a great time and we...okay the kids....got tons of candy. But that hasn't stopped us from digging through it!

HaPPy HaLLowEEn, EvEryOnE!!
