Ian is getting a bit restless with the lack of back to back physical activities he normally has lined up this time of year with football alone. Now with snow on the ground, he is just chomping at the bit to hit the slopes and is getting by with skateboarding in the cold until Snowbird opens their doors in a couple weeks.
This year the tide of Halloween seemed to ebb and flow during a week long battering from saves of candy.
Avyrlie had an event per day -
Thursday: Church lot trunk-or-treat
Friday: Spooky Cubicles at Aimee's work
Saturday: Trick or Treating at Grandma's neighborhood party
Sunday: Sunday-School sweets
By Monday she was bit burned out on the whole candy thing and would probably have loved to get a couple toothbrushes and just hang out with friends rather than gather selections of sweets from the neighborhood.
She is way more into Halloween as a social event than as a crazed cavity convention, and her Bah-Humbug brother didn't manage to leave the X-Box to answer a single trick-or-treater! Truth be told, we only answered 8 candy requests at our place. Avyrlie's angry pumpkin must have scared them away ;)

Aimee and I did a quick hike up to the mouth of Bell's Canyon just up the road from our house and discovered there is a small, and very pretty little lake up there. Definitely a hike we will do again with the kids.
