The last day of a crazy October

Halloween was a crazy day at our house! It started off with beautiful 10 mile run that I have been wanting to run since we moved here. It was great to be out before the sun was up and be able to watch the sun rise. I am always glad when Haloween actually arrives because that means that I have made it through Sept. and Oct. The start of school, meetings, 3 birthdays, soccer 5 out of 7 days a week, piano, tap, and a newborn are enough to push anyone to the brink of craziness. So what crazy woman schedules family pics on halloween in between Haileys last soccer game and trick or treating. Oh that crazy woman was me! I will post pics of the photo shoot soon! Let me just say that planning outfits for family pictures is such a pain in the rear! I am glad that it is over and that we actually got some really cute pictures thanks to Mari and her amazing skills!
So Halloween started a week early this year with the ward party and trunk or treating. It took about a week for the kids (with some help) to blow through their candy so of course we needed round 2.
This year we had a candy corn, Commander Fox, Anakin Skywalker, and a cute little fairy
Noah using the force3 of the 4 kids Lily decided that it was time to sleep when trick or treating time rolled around, I have not pictures of Lily in her costume because of thisA dang cute candy corn
Jackson will protect us all from the evil Lord Vader

It has not slowed down much but I am always so happy when November comes!
