Happy Halloween

Nothing beats trick-or-treating at an Alzheimer's facility. I took Benton in to my work to show him off and they were doing trick-or-treating with all the patients there. It was hilarious to watch him go up to these elderly people and take their candy. This one lady gave him a sucker but then became confused and tried to grab it back telling him "that is my sucker give it back!"

Benton also got to go for a ride with a sweet lady who doesn't talk much these days, but really opened up to Benton while taking him for a ride down the hall. So cute!
Here is Benton with one of his friend Parker. Cute boys having fun at the Stake Halloween Party.
We had a lot of fun dressing up this year with Benton as the Big Bad Wolf, me as Little Red Ridding Hood, and Christian as our fearless Hunter. My dad invited us back to his ward Halloween Party. My dad won 2 prizes, one for his awesome Harley Outfit (little did the ward know it isn't a costume at all!) secondly he came in 2nd for the best chili.


Here is Benton winning his prize for having the scariest costume in his age category (he is pretty scary for being a Big Bad Wolf and all :) It was cute when Christian held him up he started clapping for himself, along with everyone else there.

We also had a lot of fun trick-or-treating at 9th and 9th in all the stores. We were lucky enough to have both grandparents come out with us. We came home with way too much candy so we ended up throwing it all out (after we ate our favorite pieces of course). Halloween is a lot more fun when you get to enjoy it with a child!
Can't wait for next year!

Your little Benton is so cute. I can't believe how big he has gotten. That story about him being lost at church is so scary and so funny, I can totally relate. We miss seeing you guys. Hope all is well.

What a cute, I mean "scary" wolf. I'm glad you guys had a good Halloween. Hopefully I'll see you soon, it's been a while.
