Joe got to go in early today so he could come home early and go trick or treating with us.I was well enough to actually go this time too.
We went early enough that there was light still out, but I think the delayed daylights savings helped a lot too! Although cloudy and overcast, it was sunny enough to not need glow sticks or flashlights at first!
Not many houses were passing candy out this year it seemed. We did a few blocks with all of the kids and stopped by the Baptist church on the street that hands out hot dogs, chips, juice and cocoa for "dinner". Chit chatted with a few people before it started sprinkling. Only a block away from home now we just finished up and went home.
All of the little kids stayed with me Liam, Kaden, Jaylen and Evan; while Joe took Sariah, Rachel and Mason back out to get more trick or treating done. Because they are faster the little ones have a harder time keeping up so this way they can run from house to house instead of waiting.
They all had a blast and got a butt load of candy. A couple of houses passed out full sized candy bars which was cool.
I have pictures and I will post them soon.

I've completely lost my voice and am sick beyond belief. Most of the kids have runny noses and coughs now too. I am only hoping we'll be well enough to go trick or treating on Wednesday.

Trunk or Treat time! We went to our ward Halloween party. I wasn't feeling well and it just got worse as the night went on. The kids had fun though. Sariah won a little fish at the ring toss.
Sariah was a waitress. Rachel went as a Spice girl in a punny way though, LOL. She dressed normally and carried aruond spices with her. Mason went as the grim reaper, Liam insisted on the Doctor scrub that was 10 times too big for him, but hey it's halloween. Kaden went as old school batman. My dad and Jan visited and took pics of the kids in costumes. Kaden's costume was made for a 12 mo old and insisted on wearing it and he sqeezed his body into the costume while they visited. So since he insisted on wearing it I made some simple cuts and it will now fit him for a few more years if he wants. Jaylen went as the bee again, and Evan was a baby, LOL. Joe went as the witch doctor wearing a stethescope and witches hat, and I went as a gender bender and bent gender symbols out of pipe cleaners all night.
We had cider, donuts, and lots of cheese and crackers. There was a hay ride and trunk or treating.
It was lots of fun!

Evan now weighs what Jaylen did at BIRTH! 10lbs 9oz! He's also 22¼ " long now too! He's growing like a weed!

Hard to believe but Evan is a month old now already. He already gained one pound too.
Pam and Jared had their newest baby Kady on September 21, 2007at 6:45 p.m and weighed in at 8 lbs. 4 oz. Both mom and baby are doing fine.
Congratulations to them!!
