{Halloween 2014}

My Halloween Crew!

I always do pictures before Halloween...just to make the day less stressful.  Because honestly, getting 4 kids in costumes just IS stressful all on it's own.  

So we did photos on the back porch on the day of our primary Halloween carnival, a few days before Halloween.

Cutest pirate ever!

Mr. Incredible!

Darling witch!

And... um.  Scary guy.  I have no words for this...

Our Halloween carnival was a blast. My primary counselor planned the entire thing and it was super well attended and fun for all! Loved that our youth helped out with various stations.  The deacons quorum even had an awesome haunted house/maze.  We started early so the trunk or treat could follow the carnival and so it would still be before dark.  

Trunk or Treat fun with our friend, Pat.  

And then the day before Halloween, we finally carved our pumpkins. Trevor pulls out the old BYU track shirts for the occasion.  

Sadly, not too many pictures of this tradition this year, but we did get them carved and they looked great!

And I scored a major deal (thanks to my sis) on some full-size candy bars.  Since we get less than 100 trick or treaters in our neighborhood, it was fun to pass out the big ones!!  

The day after Halloween, Trevor and I attended a Halloween party too! Super fun to dress up as Maleficent and King Stefan! 

Happy Halloween 2014!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
