It is weird to be writing about Halloween after the New Year, hopefully one day I will be caught up on the blog! Each year my Aunt and Uncle have a Halloween party. For the entire month of October my kids are watching the mail each day to get the invitation. They put on an amazing party, I am so grateful we get to go!

I asked Bryson, not really expecting an answer, what he wanted to be for Halloween. He told me, I be a ninja guy. Well that was easy, I didn't really think he would know, or have an idea. I took him to the store while the boys were in school. We went down the costume isle, and he picked it out immediately. When I handed him the costume, he said I need a ninja sword, I fight Camden. I had to get him sword (I know I am a softy). He couldn't wait for Camden to get home from school, so they could fight. (BOYS!)

Camden picked out this costume. I wasn't too thrilled with it, but that was what he came home with, so what do you do. He is a swat guy, but he called himself a ninja too.
Dallin was this lovely skeleton guy. He wanted me to paint blood on him, I tried.
All of the kids at the party!
All of the adults!

The party was so much fun, my Aunt and Uncle put so much effort into their party, it is amazing. We always have a Mystery Dinner. My kids are usually asking the whole way over, what I think we having. When we got the invitation, Camden said I hope we are having bones again. I am amazed at how much they remember from each year. Then we played Bingo, the kids did a craft, and we watched a movie. It was a lot of fun.

We carved pumpkins the day before Halloween. It is not my favorite thing to do, but the kids have fun and that is the most important thing right.

I let Dallin do quite a bit of "carving" on his pumpkin, he thought he was so grown up. We bought the patterns this year, but I really like the little saws, they make it pretty easy!
Carving Camden's
This one is Camden's, we watched "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" at the Halloween party, I think that is why he picked this one!
This is Bryson's
and here is Dallin's.
Camden had a Costume parade at school, so we went to see him. He was so excited to see us!
I put Bryson down for his afternoon nap, and about 1:30 I received a phone call from the school. I thought that was weird. They told me Camden had fallen at break and he wasn't bleeding any more, but they thought I should come and look at him, to see if he needed stitches. Seriously! I called my neighbor, and she came to sit with Bryson, I was afraid if I had to take Cam for stitches, I really didn't want to be dealing with a tired 2 year old as well.

When I got to the school, he looked so sweet sitting there on the "sick bed". We got his stuff and I called Trisha to see what she thought, her sister in law was at her house, and she is a nurse. So I took Cam there and she looked at it. It isn't a big long cut, but it was really deep. She thought I should take him in. I called the Doctor and took him in. They decided to glue it, and we were on our way. Camden asked me to draw stitches on his head, that morning. I guess that wasn't a good sign for the day! So here is the picture just before heading out! Notice Camden's fake stitches and his band aid!
Here is his owie! He is so dang cute!
Dallin told me I needed to get him some "cool" band aids since he would have to keep it covered for awhile. I picked out some Scooby Doo ones, Camden thought they were awesome!
It was a fun filled Halloween!
