Halloween 2009

Halloween this year was so fun! I started off the day by going to the temple at 6am to do baptisms with the ym & yw of our ward. Even though it was so early, it was a great way to start the day!! That afternoon nate and I went to skylers football game. It was senior day because it was their last home game of the season. Skyler's parents, Nate and I escorted him and it was hard for me to keep myself from crying! I am sad that it is all coming to an end so fast! Normally at this time I am ready for football season to be done for him, but knowing this is his last one makes me want it not to end. Ever since I have known Skyler he has been playing football. It is weird that from now on he wont be playing football at a college level. City Leauge here we come :) He played a great game and I am so proud of him! After the game we came home and I started getting Nates halloween costume ready. He was bamm-bamm/caveman. He was so cute and made the perfect bamm bamm/caveman! I made him a little bat thing to carry around and surprisingly he carried it the whole hour and a half we went trick or treating! He looked so adorable holding his bat in one hand and his trick or treating bag around his shoulder. We went with Nate's two cousin, Josie and Dallin who als looked so cute! Josie was a pink tinkerbell and Dallin was peter pan! I was worried nate wouldnt do well and wouldnt get the concept, so it was nice that Josie was there to help him! They were so cute and by the third door nate knew exactly what to do! It was so funny! They would run up to the door and Nate would either knock or bang his little bat on the door or sometimes both :) the people would answer and he would reach in the bowl and grab his candy. We would stick it in his trick or treating bag and every time without fail he would say thank you! At one of the last houses, he ran up to the door and knocked and said "trick or treat" before they even opened the door! It was the cutest thing ever! I couldnt believe how fast he caught on! He didnt always say trick or treat, but it was so cute to see them go to each door and get there candy and then run back to the street were everyone else was waiting and then move right along to the next house. We would see people along the way we knew and would stop and talk for a minute, but Nate wouldnt have it! There was candy to be getting mom! He would pull my finger any time I tried to stop! They pretty much ran from house to house! I was suprised how long they lasted! I thought we would go to about 10 houses and they would get tired and cranky and want to stop, but we went to most of the houses in the neighborhood! They were such good sports and made halloween so fun for me! I love being a mom! I am so thankful I have Skyler and Nate in my life! They mean everything to me and I love them death! They make life fun and I look forward to waking up each day and sharing it with them! I love this time of year, it is my absolute favorite! Everything about it is great from the decorations, to the festivities, to being with family, to the food and everything else...I just LOVE it!!
