Donna with her parents Barbara and Richard We LOVE her parents we have grafted ourselves into their family
This is Donn'a family's tradition to have Jack-O-Burgers before trick-or-treating Ellie having her first one ever
Getting ready to leave the house to start the trick-or-treating
"aarrrggghhh" Bob and the boysEmery was Tinkerbell
All 3 dressed up as pirates
We took the kids around in the wagon Elliette especially loved it
Florida has the BEST traditions for trick-or-treating all the adults come to the end of their drive ways and pass out candy. Several families will all be in one drive way, so you can hit several houses at once. The kids hardly had to get out of the wagon at all
Happy Halloween!
Cooper, Donna, Bob and Croix

YEAH back home in Utah! One week really does go way too fast. We just had the most fun trip to Florida. I am just a tiny bit tempted to move back. We just have so much fun with family and friends while there. Elliette and the twins got along so good. Ellie kept saying the WHOLE trip "I need Kooker's house" Kooker for Cooper. She said it first thing this morning too. Getting into Orlando this time was crazy. We got there the same day we left but it was so busy, we think the shuttle launch. We had to connect through Detroit, which is actually a really nice airport and has things for the kids to see. We got to go Trick-or-Treating while there. We may have to make this a yearly tradition to go down in Florida. It is so nice, it's not cold and snowy. The neighborhoods do the neatest things, they all decorate golf carts and ride on them, or hay rides. Then the adults sit in the drive ways so you don't have to go to the doors. It was awesome, Ellie loved it. One of the highlights was seeing Braden. Joelle just gave birth on Monday the 1st, so we got to see him, he is so tiny and cute! Elliette loved playing with Shaelyn and cooking with Grandma. It's lots of work traveling with 2 kids and packing carseats with you, but it is so worth it! I miss everyone so much already!!!
