Halloween was fun and crazy as usually =)  The kids all had class parties, and I spent the hour running in between each classroom trying to make sure each of them got equal time.  I managed to snap a quick picture of each before dashing to the next party.

 Alexis was sad that the middle schoolers didn't get to dress up.  But they still had a great "social" and  got plenty of treats.  I took a few pictures of her and they all turned out like this because she was talking a mile a minute =)

After school we headed over to grandma and grandpa's to have some Papa Murphy's pumpkin shaped pizzas and get ready for trunk or treat.  I bought some red hair dye at Tori's request, and Alexis and Levi both wanted to use some too.  They tried to talk me into dying Scarlett's hair too, but I decided against that =)

Here is Tori our Vapriress  (I don't really know how to spell that)

 Scarlett as our little owl (not a bat as many people thought)
Alexis was Red Riding Hood  (Someone told her she looked just like the girl who played Red Riding Hood in the movie that came out a while ago.  That made her day.)  She looks so grown up to me in this picture. 
And  Levi was our SWAT team guy.   Nana and Daddy took the three older kids to pick out costumes, and I was surprised by his choice.  But he totally rocked it, and it was the perfect costume for him =)

The whole bunch! I can't believe all these cuties are ours =) 

Daniel and Charbel met us at mom and dad's for dinner and to go to Trunk or Treat.  Benji was a police man, and the cutest little policeman I have ever seen.  He got so many compliments on how cute he was.  When we were trick or treating a lady even screamed (literally) to her husband to come and see him.  He even had a badge that said Sheriff Benjamin.

Grandma, Grandpa and Michael all came with us to trunk or treat too.  It was fun to have them there.  I love this picture of my mom and Michael with Scarlett because it shows how much Scarlett is adored around here =)

Grandma and Grandpa manned the candy.  I thought I had bought a ton of candy, but we were one of the first ones out! I told them to give each kid only one, but with my dad in charge of the candy I am sure it didn't exactly happen that way =) 
After Trunk or Treating we headed over to Nana and Papa's house to trick or treat in their neighborhood.  It's our favorite place to trick or treat because so many people decorate so fun for Halloween and they always give lots of Candy =)  

Here is the gang before we headed out trick or treating. 

 And it wouldn't be Halloween without the creepy old man mask.  Although this mask seems to make an appearance quite often, not just at Halloween.  We have gotten far too much entertainment out of this thing.

We stayed out trick or treating for a few hours.  Daniel and Charbel were such good sports to run from house to house carrying Benji so that they could keep up with my kids who couldn't get to the houses fast enough!  Michael even pitched in carrying Benji for a while.  They must have been so exhausted but they never complained!  It was so fun to have Daniel, Charbel, Benji and Michael trick or treat with us this year.

When we got home the kids had to count all their loot.  Then all got an insane amount of candy, around 300 pieces each! 

It was a very successful Halloween, and we have been eating candy ever since! haha

I totally thought our girls were somebody out of twilight. They all looked great. What fun grandparents to take them shopping for those. I didn't know who the darling boy in the police costume was but he looked SO cute.

P.S. Mason's school is weird, or maybe it's just the Utah way...but they don't invite parents to the Halloween parties or any parties (not even field day!) I did get to see him in the whole-school parade though
