Halloween in Utah

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  I love any excuse to dress up.

This year I found myself in Utah on Halloween.  Hurricane Sandy messed up my plans to spend Halloween at a Jack O'Lantern festival of sorts in New York with friends.  Instead, I took my sister's 4 oldest kids trick-or-treating and then went on a date.  In Orem.  Go figure.

BBQ sauce, a firefighter, a chef, and a frog. 

These kids threw on costumes in about 2 minutes and ran out the door.  I remember spending so much time getting ready to go trick-or-treating.  I guess I still spend time on my costumes.  The goal for these kids was not to have the most creative costume; the goal was CANDY. (even though my sister spent time on them and they looked great!) 

Daniel was home sick so he didn't come with us.  He is just the funniest.  I love all my sister's kids, but it always amazes me how differently I love them.  

How can you resist that little smiling face?  I spent a lot of time with her when I was home and so grateful for the time I had to snuggle with such a cute little pumpkin.
