Halloween has come and gone...

and I'm glad we can move onto more exciting holidays. (I'm not a huge fan of Halloween it stems from some deep rooted fears as a child which took all the fun out the day for me). Of course it's also Nevada Day and Reformation Day so October 31st isn't all bad.

We decided, last minute, that it would be fun for our parents to see the babies dressed up for Halloween. So after church on Sunday we drove the 160 miles to our hometown. It was fun because we totally surprised my mom.

My mom with the babies (Emerson is still working on some of her social anxiety) but when my mom answered the door the Emerson ran into her arms and gave her hug.

This was the best picture I could get of the two of them together. (They're so impossible these days running everywhere). Eli was Peter Pan and I was really happy with how his costume turned out. Emerson was tinkerbell and I struggled with hers, it worked I suppose but it could have been much much better.

Eli was ready to go. We only ended up taking them to about 4 houses because they just don't quite grasp the concept yet, but Eli was funny. Every time someone put candy in his bucket he just stared at it and smiled like he was trying to figure out why people kept giving him things.

We had a good time even though it was a quick trip. We left early this morning since I had a meeting at work today.
