Tricks and Treats 2013

It was a trick to get the kids to help clean out the guts of their pumpkins and ready them for carving.


It is also always a trick to carve the pumpkins to each of the kids unique specifications.

However, it is always a treat when Joe pulls it off and the kids excitedly pose with this year's creations:




It will forever be a trick to get decent pictures of the kids at fun Halloween events like Yucca Mesa's annual fall festival and the town's annual flashlight scramble.

But it is always a treat for the kids to dress up in their costumes on multiple occasions and spend time with great friends:



It was a trick to gather up all the stuff we needed to dress up for Halloween and head over to the Dondo's house for trick or treating right after school.


With that said, boy oh boy was it a treat to finally see our Addams Family theme come to fruition after being thwarted by a storm last year that stranded our friends in D.C.


And with all those tricks and treats, it was time for us to have some good ole fashioned trick or treating fun.....





... and declare Halloween 2013 another success.

Oh my goodness--your house and the Addams Family costumes are KILLING ME! Truly incredible. In fact, I won't show it to my kids because their expectations will be raised about 10 notches and I could never live up to that. LOL. I am so impressed! Such awesome memories your kids will have. Way to go, Mom!

Jake and Elijah totally wore the same costumes this year. I feel like they would be buddies, just like their mamas!
