Halloween Fun!

Friday, the 30th Main Street here in town does a Trick-or-treating for the kids. They go up and down Main Street and the businesses pass out treats for the kids! They LOVE this! So after school we got dressed up and headed down to trick-or-treat. When we got there Rhett was so excited...he kept saying "parade!" I guess it was a little like a parade...a costume parade!:) Our ward does a trunk-or-treat tonight that the kids are excited for as well...we are going to have SOOOOO much candy!! My stomach feels sick just thinking about it! Anyway, here are pictures of the kids' Halloween costumes and some of the parties from school.
This is Eli (just in case you couldn't see him!:) He was a ninja. When I told him to smile he looked at me and said "Ninja's don't smile!" So this is what we got!
Caleb was a Knight! At first Rhett was going to be a dragon and Caleb wanted to be the Knight with a dragon...but then we decided to have Rhett be Diego...Ooops!:) Sorry Caleb...no pet dragon for you!:)
Kyla as a Gypsy! I can never get a "normal" picture of her...she always ends up making some silly face or laughing her head off. This was the best of all that I took!:)
Rhett as Diego...his favorite show that he wants to watch 24/7! All the kids together!

Also, we had parties at all of their classes for Halloween and here's what the kids helped me make and take to their rooms.
For Eli's class we made Candy Corn Cupcakes. They turned out so cute!
For Caleb's class we made Caramel Toffee Apple Dip and some apples. Sorry not picture but you can go HERE to see the recipe and what it looked like!

For Kyla's class we made Witches wands! So much fun!
In Tony's class they played a game...bobbing for donuts! It was a lot of fun wathcing the kids try to eat those donuts!:)

All recipes for the kids classes were found at one of my favoriet websites!! You can go check it out HERE!

Hope everyone has a Happy Halloween!

Looks like you spent all of your Halloween in the kitchen! Our grandkids are certainly cute in all their Halloween costumes. What did Tony dress up as this year? Didn't see him posing in any of the pictures. Oh, yeah, he was in the one with the doughnuts!
