The Saturday before Halloween, the family went to mom and dad's and painted pumpkins. Mom made homemade soup that was delicious and the kids had a blast! (Note to Aunt Jude. . . I put names of parents in parentheses for you. . .there's getting to be lots of us these days. Did you know Jen is pregnant? It's a boy!!!)
Reiss (Mel), Charlee (Mel), Cael (Jen)
Lauren just liked eating the paint (Dale)

Halloween night we were in Heber and went trick-or-treating with the kids. Charlee and Drew were so, so into trick-or-treating. They practically ran from house to house leaving behind Reiss, Heath, and Lauren. Derek and I ended up taking Reiss and Heath and doing some houses at their own pace. Here's most everyone in their costumes.

Reiss the mean witch and Charlee the kitty--mom made these costumes

Maylie the ladybug. . . she was so incredibly cute in this costume!!! (Derek's Family)

Riley the teenage mutant ninja turtle (Derek's Family)

Bubba (Melanie's) the doggie and Derek. Bubba was so funny with his costume. He threw a fit when Mel tried to put it on him and then when she finally got it on him, he wouldn't take it off.

Cute Rachael

Me and Reissa. . . I love this little girl!!!

Mel looking all good in Reissa's witch hat. Reiss ditched the hat soon after the
trick-or-treating started!
Drew the fireman (Dale's)
Holly sent me this pics of her kids and I thought they were so cute I had to post them. Holly made all of these costumes. . . she did an amazing job!!!

Isaac the Storm TrooperEnoch the carnitore (don't ask me, I guess it's some kind of dinosaur)
Baby Zeke the seal
