Happy Halloween!

This year for Halloween we had two nights of Celebration. Thursday was our Trunk or Treat and Friday we had a get together at my Brother's house.
The trunk or Treat was fun. Only Caitlyn and I went to that because Elsa was sick with the stomach flu on Tuesday and then decided to throw up again right before we were leaving so Wade stayed home with her. This year it wasn't really trunk or treating, they just had us go around to the rooms to get the candy. Caitlyn had a good time and got some good candy.
Friday I was gone all day for a stake young women activity so Wade watched the girls and cooked his chili for the Annual Barlow family Chili Cook-off. I got home right before we had to leave so I got the girls ready and we left. As always we had a lot of fun at Tyler and Sarah's. My mom , Tyler, Jared, and Wade chili. Unfortunately Tyler's chili won. They were all good though. After that is was time to go trick or treating. I think there were like 20 kids at the party. We divided in two groups so the big kids could run from house to house. Caitlyn was a lot of fun this year. She could say trick or treat and it was so cute. She was also way excited to be with her cousin Brock. They were holding hands as we walked from house to house. Elsa enjoyed the stroller ride but towards the end Wade took her out to go up to the doors. By the end of the night I was exhausted because I had been up at 5 that morning. I went to bed and then awoke at 2:30 a.m. feeling sick. Yes, I had caught the stomach flu that Elsa had. Luckily it was about an 8 hour bug for me. I just slept most of the day. I am feeling better now but that is why this post is late. I am just hoping Cailtyn and Wade don't get it. Elsa has been lingering longer than I want it to. Anyway below are the pictures from the weekend.

This year Caitlyn was Belle. She wears this dress all the time but when you asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween she said Belle.
Here is my cute Bee, Elsa

Here is a group picture of all the kids at the party. It was a lot of kids!
Aren't these so cute?! My brother Jared always makes creative things. They are double stuffed oreos with pretzel legs and then dipped in chocolate. They tasted really good too.
