"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

My Little Haunts!

Halloween this year was so much fun.  End of term for the kids landed on Halloween, so they didn't have to go to school!  I cooked a pancake breakfast while we watched the old Disney cartoon "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."  The kids had never heard of the Headless Horseman, so it was fun to introduce them.

We had our usual monster feast with Mummy Dogs, festive fruit, and our veggie skeleton, then we headed to Grandma's to trick-or-treat with our cousins!  Since Will's baptism is the next day, we had lots of family in town and it was an extra treat to share the holiday with them.

We hit up Valley Hills, the Ivory Homes neighborhood in our ward, and finished the night trick-or-treating in Timp Meadows.  The dads were party poopers and headed home with Will and James before we got to the last neighborhood.  There was one house at the end of our treat collecting that had what we though was a dummy sitting by the trees.  We even snuck up to it, grabbed it's arm, and I spooked Jenn thinking it was all pretend... until we turned our backs!  He jumped up and scared the daylights out of us!  It was the highlight of our Halloween and we laughed about it all night.
