One of the things I was super excited about moving to Arizona was for Halloween. I pictured walking around with the kids for hours in warm weather, nothing like we experienced in Alaska. Alaska's halloweens were disappointing; Christmas was awesome, but Halloween...not so much. So Arizona's halloween met and exceeded my expectations. We walked around for a few hours around our neighborhood. We never even got cold and I was wearing a skirt and flip flops. There were tons of kids walking around with their parents. It reminded me of old times when I was a kid. What exceeded my expectation was that here, people pass out candy in their driveways. They set up a table and in many cases bonfires and have their candy and decorations out. Adults catch up with neighbors and enjoy seeing the kids dressed up. It was like a massive block party. The roads were even closed so we didn't have to worry about cars! I loved it. The kids got more candy than they need. I'm considering offering them a trip to the toy store in exchange for their candy.
They are now comatosed, or rather asleep, in their beds from utter excitement from one of their favorite days of the year.
Alright, here are some pictures of their costumes.
All our crazies together. I added paint to Jordyn's face before trick-or-treating.
Witch hats for dessert one night.

Lots of fun and good times this month...for sure!
