Happy Halloween!

Travis and I took the kids trick or treating around our neighborhood on Sunday. My mom stayed behind with baby Violet and handed out candy to all the trick or treaters, which we got a lot!! Thank goodness I sent Travis to the store for candy and he came back with 6 bags, which at first I thought was a little much, but we ended with just half a bag left! Our pumpkins....i know, they are not the most attractive pumpkins, but the kids painted them themselves. We started out with green, red, yellow, black and white paint, but with 2 year olds, they mixed them together and we got "gray"! The pumpkin that was carved, was carved about a month ago, so it had a good run!
Getting ready. This was round 2, so they knew the drill.

They were fighting over who would ring the doorbell. Screaming match, which I am sure the people didn't even need a doorbell because they had blood curdling screams instead. Presley was using her candy bag as a weapon, smacking Cash. We got it all on all video, which is hilarous!!

Halloween is also Travis's birthday. I made him a german chocolate cake from scratch, which is actually very tedious and I am quite proud of myself! It was delicious.

We had a few of Travis's family over for cake. I got Travis a Flip camera, which actually, I got for myself too. It's such a handy little thing to have!! I love it. So, overall it was a good Halloween celebration and the twins loved every second. On Monday at 8am, Presley had her costume on and was ready to go trick or treating.

Happy 32nd Birthday Travis! We love you!
