Halloween has come and gone!


It wouldn't quite be Halloween if there wasn't a party at the Wolffs! Even though we are very new to the area and only know a handful of people at church, somehow we ended up with a full house. Chad dressed up as Dr. Dreamy, myself as a lady bug, Edyn as a kitty kat and Ethan a zombie. This was for Friday night as Saturday brought a completely different lineup.





We had such a great time that I was glad we had decided to throw one even though we didn't think there would be anyone showing up. We played halloween jeopardy, Halloween sound bites, and pumpkin bowling in the garage just to name a few. Oh, and the food! So yummmmmmy! The food you see was only the half of it! Uggghhhhh, time to hit the gym hard core again.




On Saturday we had a baptism for Ethan's friend in the early afternoon after which we raced home to change into our costumes for trunk-or-treat at the church. Chad was Al Capone (he left his tommy gun in the car), myself as his little sidekick, Ethan a soldier, and Edyn was back into her bumblebee costume. Hmmmmm, I look really weird with a short black bob of a haircut. Thank goodness it's only a wig!




After trunk-or-treat we headed out to the the neighborhood for some good ole' fashioned trick-or-treating and did my kids ever load up! In total they ended up with 12 pounds of candy, and we really weighed it! What am I going to do with 12 pounds of candy?! This morning I hid it but apparently I didn't hide it good enough as it only took seconds for my children to find it. Actually, I'm not really too worried about them, it's me I'm worried about! Hope everyone had a fun Halloween!


The following picture was taken just before we left to go to our ward trunk-or-treat. Edyn had first put on her witch costume and after I had finished her makeup she looked in the mirror and tears started to appear. She kept saying "I'm not cute!". Chad took her outside to take some pictures of her and she just wasn't a happy camper. We took her back inside where she changed into her bumblebee costume and the tears disappeared. I don't know, as I look at this picture she couldn't have been more wrong about her appearance. But then again, I'm a biased mommy.

The party looked great and the food looked awesome!
I love how you all changed costumes! All of you look great!
Glad to hear that your Halloween was fun.
12 lbs of candy!!! Idea: Use the candy in treat bags when you need to give someone a present, like for visiting teaching! ;)

We did really miss having a party at your house this year. I kept thinking it wasn't quite Halloween without such a party, but I just wasn't ambitious enough to hold one like it - I couldn't live up to your standards! The idea of 12 lbs of candy in this house is pretty scary. And I definitely have to disagree as well with Edyn's assessment - she makes an adorable witch.

You guys are simply awesome! Two sets of costumes for one Halloween weekend? We didn't even put one on... lame! I think we'll take a page out of your book for next year! The whole family looked great!

Your house looks so nice, I always love your house, it just feels like home. I can't belive how much candy they got, amazing! Congrats on the half, isn't it such a fun distance. I miss you guys. I know we didn't see each other much, but there is just something about knowing people are there. It has been so much harder for me to leave NYC than I thought it would. I hope we can muster a get together sometime, before Eden is off to college :o) (yes the witch was darling)

I love all your costumes! Ethan makes such a scary zombie! And I agree with you--Edyn makes a beautiful witch!

Fabulous costumes and your party looks so much fun - I wish we could have been there! I can't believe all the candy your kids got - next year we might have to come up for Halloween!
