Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from our family to yours! We've had a whirlwind week, and I must say, I am glad the week is over. Despite the chaos of life we experienced this week, we also tried to fit in some Halloween activities. Trotwood is really into Pokemon right now and wanted to be Ash Ketchum from Pokemon. So, last Sunday, I literally dusted off my sewing machine and put together an "Ash" shirt for him. We painted the symbol on a red hat and cut off the fingers of some green gloves. Of course, the costume wouldn't be complete without a Pikachu and a Pokeball. For those of you unfamiliar with Pokemon, here is what Ash Ketchum looks like:

Little Dorrit was a monster for Halloween. Her costume was way too big for her but we made it work.

On Wednesday night, we attended our ward's Trunk or Treat and then on Friday, we went trick or treating at my work. The marketing department, along with other departments, really go all out and decorate for the kids. We took pictures with a Tardis!
Trotwood participated in a "Jedi Training Academy."

And he got his picture taken with a storm trooper.
We also visited WhoVille, Jurassic World, and Hollywood. It was super busy but a lot of fun and I look forward to going next year. 

Tonight, we joined with some great friends for an afternoon of karaoke, food and then trick-or-treating. Little Dorrit was obsessed with the karaoke microphone and kept trying to eat it. 

When we asked Trotwood if he had a good Halloween, he said "No. I had an AWESOME Halloween!" He went to bed happy and tired and that makes it all worth it.
