No snazzy title: just Halloween

Jared & I are not Halloween-ers. It's a fact and it's not going to change. We're not the type to dress up all cutsie, or do a family theme. In fact, I tried this year. I really tried. At the beginning of the month I said to my husband, "Megan's going to be a lamb and we're going to be shepherds." Nice idea, right?

That's all it turned out to be: an idea. I had every intention of coming up with a costume for Jared & I, but then life happened. I got busy, and my intentions went out the window. (Besides, we all know that the road made with good intentions never got paved, right?)

Okay, on with the pictures.

On Friday, Jared took Megan to his dad's work to go trick-or-treating (which was really just an excuse to show off the grandkids). Megan's cousin Kienan went, too. Here is a picture of Nana & Papa with their lamb & tiger.

Here's a close-up of our m&m-eating-lamb.

Friday night was our ward Halloween Carnival. Here are Megan & Evie. I can never resist taking pictures of these two at every opportunity. (side note: I can't help but notice how HUGE Megan's cheeks look in these pictures. Just call her Queen Chubbacheeks.)

Then on Saturday, we went over to Nana & Papa's house. We didn't plan on taking Megan trick-or-treating at all (I know, we're so lame! But she's ONE and it's COLD!). But, Nana & I did end up taking her out trick-or-treating to about 20 houses. She was a tired, tired baby when we got home.

Then on Sunday, on the real Halloween, we went to church.
