Halloween 2010

Just wanted to post a few pics of this years Halloween festivities. Gavin really really wanted to be the Solar System this year. This is what I came up with. For the helmet I just spray painted an old one yellow...for the sun and then I got a solar system kit from the craft store and hand painted them to look like the planets. Then I just put glow and the dark stars all over a pair of black pants and a black shirt. I think he looked cute. He loved it and that's all that mattered.

Hayden made an adorable pirate.

This year, because Halloween was on a Sunday and as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, we don't trick on a Sunday, my mom had a huge party.
There was carnival games, a pumpkin carving contest, chili and hot dogs, and trick or treating at every door of her house and guest house. The kids had a blast and I don't think they even realized it wasn't actually Halloween.

Thanks mom for such a fantastic evening. As you can see the kids were thoroughly tuckered out.
