HAP-HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

First off, let me remind everyone that Chipotle is giving away FREE burritos to all those that dress-up like a burrito! You would be CRAZY not to take advantage of this opportunity! Don't leave home without your aluminum foil!

We've been celebrating Halloween all month...especially this week. (Sadly though, aside from our visit to Chipotle, cladded in burrito gear, we don't have anything planned for the actual holiday.) But this is what we've been up to...

Carving Pumpkins!
Wyatt and I did not discuss how each of us were going to carve our pumpkins, so it's pretty fun that the final outcome seems as if there was some premeditation put into it. Wyatt's is the cannibal pumpkin. And mine is the worried pumpkin (which was inspired by these three little characters <:( It's perfect because it looks like my pumpkin is a bit uncomfortable by the whole pumpkin cannibalism. Next up...

Cupcakes!
I'm not really this creative. Thanks to a quick search on Google images, keyword "halloween cupcakes" I came up with these. I made them for the Halloween Party the Young Women's (I'm the secretary) halped put on for the Primary kids. I was in charge of the Cupcake walk... Sadly, as cute as I thought my cupcakes were, they weren't a hit with the little ones. They prefered the cupcakes adorned with Oreos and brightly colored candies...brats. I mean, what?!!!! Just kidding. They just haven't yet aquired a refined appreciation of art. Followed by the cupcake walk we had the...

Trunk-or-Treat!!!! Just to refresh your memory of what we did for last years event, please visit here. It was pretty rad (if I can toot my own horn). The problem, however, is that we set the bar TOO HIGH! So Wyatt and I have been throwing some ideas around the last few months and have been stewing on the one below.
Let me just say, the pictures DON'T do it justice. You really need to see this one in person to get the real idea of it. Everyone LOVED it (can I toot my own horn again?) and told us that we did indeed surpass last years creation. One of the little girls told her parents, "all we brought were these stinky pumpkins!" It made me laugh. Wyatt did take a video that portrayed our work a little better but it's not very exciting footage, so I'll spare you. "What are you going to do next year?", you ask? Move. We're going to move out of the ward...I don't know if we can keep raising the bar.

Hope you all have a Happy Halloween! Especially my sis-in-law Jeanna! It's her birthday! Happy Birthday Jeanna!!!!!! (Sorry I don't have any pictures of you from 1984... I'm sure you're probably releaved that I don't.)

Chipotle just so happens to be my favorite restaurant! Too bad it's 45 minutes away and we have plans tonight! :(
Love your pumpkins! You rock!

Awesome. The pumpkins, the truck, you guys. There isn't much else to say.

I wish I would have known sooner about chipotle and their free food, Oh well. You guys did an awesome job on your decorating, how creative. Happy Halloween, and thanks for hangin' with us that night...it had been forever.

Nice work! I can appreciate anyone who takes Halloween as seriously as you do. Love the pumpkins (the worried one reminds me of Harold's birth pic).

And the truck is amazing. Start packing, there's nowhere to go from here....too much pressure.

1984-I was 15? Nasty, nasty pics. Super grody acne. I thought I looked pretty hot, but it turns out, nope!

Wow! I thought those cupcakes were outstanding! I agree--Brats. They have no taste or even appreciation for the finer things of life. There's more to it than Oreos.

Did you try the fake susi treats?

That trunk or treat is awesome! (and the cupcakes are cool too.) I should follow your blog more. By the way, don't give in to facebook. Even getting tracked down by an ex-girlfriend hasn't got me to join. I'll just hack into Kelsey's account and look her up.

I just read Aaron's comment. No, ok first I saw his picture and laughed and made fun of him. Then I saw his comment and have to beat him now.
