I really don't usually like to reuse costumes, and had so many cute ideas for this year, but Chad and I decided to pull out the scarecrow and witch again (its been a few years) because we knew our kids would make the cutest tin man and lion that anyone had ever seen.
Since we were out in Vegas, we got to celebrate Halloween with a lot of the Zwick family. We went to the "district" -- some outdoor shops near my parents house, and really enjoyed the spooky festivites that were there... not to mention lots of really great costumes to look at :)
After the district, we decided to fill up our tin man's bucket just a little bit more, so we went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. It took a few houses for Parker to realize he wasn't supposed to walk into each house when they opened the door. But, he loved saying "ti ta tee (trick or treat)" and "Kank Coo (thank you)". It was so cute. Once the kids started looking like this...
We loaded them up and drove back to St. George. They slept, and Chad and I ate the halloween candy the whole way back. Yum. Happy Halloween everyone!
We got to go through the Las Vegas temple with my little sister Tia on Saturday morning. It was her first time, as she is preparing to leave for her mission. It was so neat to be able to share that special day with her, and be with her for such an important event. We love you Tia!
