Pumpkins and Halloween

Halloween gets more fun as your children get older. Seeing the excitement on their faces during the Fall Carnivals, dressing up, and of course - getting massive amounts of candy is so much fun for parents. This year Avery was Rapunzel and Taos was a cow... fitting for a child who is obsessed with the "booos" right now. Funny though - he got called a girl and a sheep throughout our trick-or-treating night!!


The cow and Rapunzel ready for trick-or-treating


Ready to get started with the Gibsons. Brenna, Taos, Avery, Caden, and Gracie
Checking out each other's costumes :) They are only a couple weeks apart in age!

Knocking on the first door


Daddy, Taos, and Aves are getting the hang of it


Avery and Minnie Callie


It took Taos a while to warm up to the idea of walking up to a stranger's house. But he did figure it out!


I think he ate about 4 suckers!! It was the only thing that kept him happy toward the end of the night.




Carson, Caden, Avery, Taos, Callie, Gracie, Brenna


Getting everyone to the door, saying trick-or-treat and thank you, putting the candy in the bag and returning to your parents seemed to be a chaotic task.... everyone helped everyone!


Ninja Carson and Spiderman Caden


Baker Averi and Rapunzel Avery




Taking a break on the curb




Avery's eyes are shut but this one was so funny - the kids were too tired to walk back to the car so we carried the little ones and the big kids shared the stroller. Caden and Avery were hilarious riding together.
