Halloween & Thanksgiving

Well, I'm a little behind.  I kind of jumped ahead of myself when I posted Calvin's birthday/Priesthood weekend.  So now I'm backtracking.  I want to just get onto our Christmas activities so I'm combining Halloween and Thanksgiving.  For Halloween we just went to our ward's Halloween party and went trick or treating around the neighborhood.  First, though, we went to old down town at Fremont street because we thought there would be a trunk or treat for the kids.  There was only a parade that wasn't anything to write home about and the only people there were adults dressed up and almost no kids.  So we went back to our neighborhood and got candy.  Then, it was Calvin's birthday, then Clint's birthday, which was good.  Then was Thanksgiving.  We had a quiet day at home, feasting on turkey and all the trimmings.  We DID go to Walmart and Target later that night, much later, to check out the Black Friday deals.  Anyway, here are some pictures of our holidays....
I just thought this was a cute moment. 

Clint's birthday trifle.

In this photo and the next few, the kids were just being silly.
I think it was all that sugar.
