This Halloween wast ill of so many fun activities. It is one of my favorite holidays. I don't love the gore, intact I really hate it. It is the crispness in the air, the start to the fall season, pumpkins (and all the pumpkin treats, and the general excitement in the air that I really love. This year was especially exciting for me since it was going to be shared with so many friends and family. We kicked off our festivities with a chili dinner and pumpkin carving and Aaron and Tina's house. I love Reber activities and this one was one of the best. Evelyn had a great time playing in a "kid friendly" back yard with cousins. Seriously I loved this yard and the ease of knowing Evelyn was safe. The Chili was amazing and the company was even better. At the end of the night the kiddos carved pumpkins. Evelyn didn't get to carve a pumpkin but that didn't stop her from playing with all the seeds and watching with pure joy while the other kids did. The extent of her pumpkin carving consisted of putting stickers on one :) Maybe next year.
Tina was so prepared for these little kiddos. She had candy corn and pumpkin balloons waiting for their arrival. Let's just say she was Evelyns BFF by the end of the night.
The older cousins loved to bounce Evelyn and Jude on the tramp. The sounds of their little laughs made my heart sing.
My mom made Evelyn the most fantastic and perfect Tinker Bell costume this year. I won't get to have much say in her costume choices as she gets older so this year I got to take full creative reigns. Tinker Bell is her favorite movie right now so of course that is who she had to be :) On the 28th the Murray Public Library was holding their Halloween party. It was full of singing, stories and cute kiddos in costume. It was fun to see how many Elsa and Annas there were. Evelyn and Jude ended the day by walking in the library parade and eating a donut. It was a perfect afternoon with my Tink and Elephant.
I could just die over her lips. Where did they come from?
It is just so hard to be this cute.
This year we had the opportunity to celebrate Halloween in St. George. Unoftuantely Josh was not with us...hospital. The festivities started off with a fun cousin get together at Grandma Reber's. This is probably one of my favorite parties of the year. Grandma always gets pizza and makes delciousous popcorn balls and the fridge is always stocked with Diet Coke. It is so fun to see all the cousins together in their costumes and for all the adults to catch up. After the party we headed to my home ward for some hotdogs, chili and trick or treating. It was so fun to watch Evelyns face all evening. She really understood trick or treating and with NO stranger danger at all she walked with grandma from car to car collecting candy. She was all over the getting free candy thing. She carefully put each piece in her bucket and didn't ask to eat any. At the end she went up to anyone and everyone who would cave to her cuteness and have them open another piece of candy for her. Im still shocked she didn't throw up. It was such a fun Halloween. I can't wait until next year.

I seriously love this cute family. I grew up with Jenny and I love that our daughters are the same age and get to play together.
The saying of the evening was, "Just one piece Evelyn"
Can I have your food Grandma?
