Happy Halloween

Tonight was our Primary Trunk or Treat Activity. The darn weather was not cooperating so it had to be moved into the chapel annex on base. They had lots of activities for their carnival.

Kaitlyn was adorable. She went as her favorite character, Maid Marian as the Nightwatchman. If you don't know who that is, it is a television show on BBC called Robin Hood. Doesn't she make a cute Nightwatchmen? Aimee and Wendy also dressed up for Halloween as a Mime and an Inverse Mime. Wendy is in white, Aimee in black. Complete opposites they are for sure, this just proves it!

Dave woke up this morning thinking 'what can I do to make my office unique for Halloween?' So he reached into his imagination and creativity that he got from his mom and pulled out the most creative thing he could find. He grabbed an old flannel shirt, a pair of jeans, his hiking boots, a doll that his mom made for him when he was a little boy, a stick and string. This is what he came up with. The sign says 'Gone Fishin'. My husband is so creative, I'm so glad his mom passed that talent on to him.

Aimee being the Young Adult Rep. in our ward decided last weekend to throw a Halloween Horror Movie night, watching old 1950s and 1960s horror flicks. Anyway, she was able to get a hold of some of the singles to invite them and Wendy was able to invite some that she sees at work occasionally, but no one showed up. She is so sad, Poutybut we have told her not to give up and to try again. Hopefully she will have better luck next time. The whole night isn't a waste. Wendy, Dave and Aimee are all downstairs watching those horror movies with all the comfort foods- Pizza Slice pizza, Potato Chip chips, dip, Candy Bar 2 Halloween candy, and Soda 3 Soda 2 Soda soda. While Kaitlyn and I sit upstairs writing blogs and watching 'Tinkerbell'.

We hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween 'til next year. Witches

Looks like Kaitlyn had fun in her costume. Aimee and Wendy look like they had fun also. No reason adults can't dress up either. Sorry about the movie thing. What matters is that you tried. Don't give up.
