This Is Where It All Begins

A bit funny and a bit freaky..you decide.

Our annual ward Halloween party was tonight, and it was a BLAST! It was seriously so much fun. Both kids loved the trunk-or-treat and the games were great as well. The chili cook-off was everything I imagined and more. (major craving right now)

Ben and I decided to get "creative" with our costumes this year. The kids looked adorable, but we wanted to join in the fun as well.

So..without any further adieu, welcome the beautiful butterfly queen, the adorable green monster, Dora and Diego.

I love these kiddos so much. It made my heart happy to see their huge grins.



She looked so darn cute. Her hair took forever, because she has TONS of it. She has been excited for weeks to wear her wings.



Our adorable monster. It is Sam's first year understanding Halloween. It is so much fun to see he and Mary so excited.




Dora and Diego at the ward party. The adults were a bit afraid, and the kids loved it..until Dora spoke and her deep booming voice just didn't quite fit.



Dora the Explorer!





Diego...animal rescuer.





Mary and Sam at the trunk-or-treat. Mary ran to each and every car. Sam was shy for the first few and then began demanding suckers from everyone. Ha!
