Introducing this years duo:
Little Mermaid and Lil' Pumpkin
And this was part of the process of getting them there:
(or protecting the ozone layer.. either way.)

Hailey was SO fun this year and Addy was a blast. Every time we left a house after getting some candy, Hailey would run off yelling "WOOHOO!" and Addy would get these crazy huge grins on her face. It was so fun to watch them get so excited.
Traditionally, we always go to grandma and grandpa's neighborhood in Orem to trick or treat. We know a lot of the people in their neighborhood and they always get very excited to see our kids dressed up each year. Besides, it allows grandma and grandpa to share the evening with us as well.
This is the house of some really good friends of ours. Their son was dressed up SUPER scary with a crazy scary mask on, so he took it off after a minute to let the girls know it was just him. They said just before we got there, he scared a group so bad that they were diving off their porch, running over eachother and screaming to get away. Love it.
I think we might have a problem with our girls eventually. They are SO intrigued by scary stuff. They love it. Nate took them to the halloween store one night and he said all they wanted to do was go to the graveyard section with all the creepy stuff. Weird.
This was Hailey impatiently waiting in the rain to do some trick or treating.
I couldn't get Addy to keep a straight face while photographing her. She was CRAZY that night.
Hailey was in true princess form with being Ariel.
It was pretty cold, but they didn't care.
They loved EVERY minute of it.
And of course:
then, when all was over and they were ready for a bath, this is what it looked like from the dye in their hair.
While we are on the subject of Halloween, Hailey had a parade at her preschool's Halloween party.
She was adorable and thought it was pretty darn cool to dress up with her friends.

Nate is a brave soul. I came home from Young Womens one night and he and the girls had carved pumpkins, AND had the mess all cleaned up!
