Growing up, my mom had a rule that once you were twelve you were deemed "too old" to go trick-or-treating. In hindsight, I agree with this rule. There comes a point when you are just too old. This didn't stop me from resenting the rule as a child. I would sit at the door and pass out candy to all of my friends. Poor me, right? In the end, Halloween became a holiday I didn't care about.

Fast Forward a decade (literally) and Halloween took on a new meaning. Why? Kids of my own to have fun with and dress up! This year was my first with two kiddos to dress but the weather threw a wrench into Kate's costume. She was going to be a lady bug but the weather was so warm that she would have overheated in her costume. Alas, Halloween goes on!

Round #2 of Halloween 2014 was spent with Ruth & Dan. Their ward has the ultimate trunk-or-treat. And is there anything cuter than a little lion careening down an inflatable slide? I think not.
