Happy Halloween

Carving pumpkins. Kai said he wanted a "scary pumpkin".

Kai was supposed to be a policeman for Halloween. We already had the costume and were set to go, but whenever people would ask him what he was going to be for Halloween he would say "a scary monster." So we ditched the policeman outfit for this scary monster costume instead. He loved it...especially the 4 arms!

At the church Halloween party. Soren was living his fantasy as Drew Brees.

Getting ready to go into the haunted house.

My step dad David won 1st prize for his awesome split pea soup...It was to die for! (Halloween pun intended). Way to go David!!!

Trunk or Treating

Actual trick or treating. Blakely's ladybug outfit was so super cute I could hardly stand it. She had such a fun 1st Halloween.

Back at the house.

Me, Hailey, and the kids. (nice pumpkins!)

Of course Halloween night also happened to be the Oregon USC football game. So in between trick or treating and passing out candy we watched our Ducks kick some serious Trojan booty. Here Kai is celebrating an Oregon touchdown and eating some Halloween candy.

(You would never know from these pictures that Kai had been super sick earlier this week and was diagnosed with H1N1. We thought Halloween would be out of the question for sure this year, but his fever was down enough for us to get to participate in a few of the holiday's activities. We are so happy you are better Kai. Thank you everyone for your prayers. )

We love being Oregonians and we sure love our Oregon Ducks. We are holding out for a Rose Bowl appearance this year. Here we all are at fan day. Kai had such a blast and just loved meeting the Duck. What a fun day. GO DUCKS!!!

We love our Ducks!
