Happy Halloween!

Before the night disappears completely, let me wish everyone a Happy Halloween. The festivities here in St. George have been grand and sweet. Even so, may I just say that I'm glad Halloween only comes once a year? I'm exhausted.

Here are Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Prince Charming at Tonaquint Nature Center's fall festival, held more than a week ago. Quite the regal ensemble.
Tangled Talia gets her fortune told. She was absolutely amazed that Zelda guessed how she sings and Brooklyn is an artist.
On Sunday we got in the Halloween spirit by making mummy dogs...
...and candy corn sugar cookies.
We even let the kids paint their faces.

Of course, they painted ours as well.

It just wouldn't be Halloween without pumpkin carving.
From left to right, we have the creations of Talia and Jason, Brooklyn, Eli, and Kara + babe.
Events not pictured: the school Halloween parade, the BooNanza at the Sand Hollow Aquatic Center, the Girl Scout Halloween party, Halloween story-time at Learning Express, the Homecoming parade, and the ward Trunk-or-Treat.
Hope everyone else's Halloween was spooky and wonderful. Now it's time for a nap...

I'm afraid the exhaustion part is just starting as we move into the celebration quarter. Really - a total fourth of the year is spent in celebrating from Halloween to Christmas with a little Thanksgiving wedged between, don't you think?

Sounds like you had a very very busy week of fun activities! Love the prince and princesses. Your Mummy dogs were impressive wrapped in not one big blanket but literal strips. That had to take a lot of time but they sure turned out cute. And the face painting - what a great idea to let them do their own! Happy Halloween to you, too! Hope today is a sweet, restful kind of day.
