A Star Wars Halloween

We had such a fun Halloween this year! I didn't get around to throwing another Halloween party, much to Nathan's disappointment, because I was just too sick and tired in the early months of this pregnancy and had no desire whatsoever to go through all the effort. Maybe next year! But we were able to just relax and enjoy some of the festivities with our little Yoda. Nathan and Sawyer borrowed their costumes so I threw together a last-minute Princess Leia and we were good to go! I was actually surprised at how much Sawyer seemed to enjoy it all. Friday night we went to Nathan's school for a little trick-or-treating in the classrooms and some carnival type activities. Saturday we went to our ward's Halloween Party and Trunk-or-Treat. We had so much fun! Sawyer actually figured out how to put the candy into his bucket and he was more than mesmerized by all of the pumpkins and decorations. Nathan and I had the best time just guiding him around the parking lot to collect his candy. I will say that Halloween is so much more fun with kids! Plus you get to enjoy all the candy once again! :)

I really do think that Nathan fulfilled a childhood dream this Halloween. You can see it in his face =) Way to pull it all together Jess. Also, it is always so funny to me to see you AZ people in flip flops and shorts for Halloween. I laughed out loud to see Yoda in a fleece outfit (perfect for oregon) with his little feet clad in flips flops. That costume must have been really hot for the poor kid. I guess he had a light saber so he didn't care.
