We had a great Halloween!

It all started with my Dad, Lane and Uncle Ernie when they came over for breakfast.

Then my sweet dad took apart our washer because it went out that week, along with our dryer. Yes, our washer and our dryer went out last week. Our dryer still kind of works.

Anyways, my dad found a broken coupler and I bought a new one on Monday. He is going to put it in on Saturday. I hope it fixes the problem. Keep your fingers crossed for us. I guess that is what you get when you buy used washers and dryers.

Here is Ayla during the day. Doesn't she look so adorable?

Krista, Morganne and Baby Kurt came over to visit us and to show us their costumes.

Morganne was a witch. Here she is flying away on her broom.

Baby Kurt was an elephant, AKA a tantor. Tantor is his nick name.

Of course Ayla loved having her cousin over.

Not so sure what Ayla is trying to do here.

They ended up staying for dinner.
We had brains (spaghetti) and goblin eyes (corn).

And of course we couldn't get them to look at the camera at the same time. That is why I have both pictures on here.

Then my mom and Lane came over. I needed to get Lane ready so we could go to our ward's trunk-or-treat. Krista, Morganne and Baby Kurt ended up joining us.

Here is the whole gang in their costumes. Ayla in her dog costume and Lane is in his ghostbusters costume, I made him.

I even dressed up. I was Maleficent for the 3rd year in a row. This was taken at the trunk-or-treat. After the trunk-or-treat, we decided to trick-or-treat at a few houses in the neighborhood.

Cute little witch with her bag of candy.

There was a man dressed up as the Headless Horseman at one of the houses we went to. Lane freaked out when he saw him and ran and wouldn't get near him. We thought he looked pretty cool so we got our picture with him.

We had a very fun filled Halloween.

How was yours?
