Spooky Walk

My Dad had the luck of being born on Halloween AND being named Jack. He is a good sport and they always go all out for Halloween. For the past 2 years since they moved to Woodland Hills, Utah (on 5 acres of wooded forest) they have organized a Spooky Walk for the family. Last year it was so scary all the kids were in tears. This year, they decided to do a fun version for little kids and a scary version for the big kids and adults. There were things flying through the trees, crawling up from the ground and popping out to scare us! It was so fun. No kids cried this year and in fact, most of them wanted to go through it again. It was so incredibly awesome, I don't even know how to describe it. My mom was a witch and she had the best cackle I've ever heard. Pat was the Wood Keeper with an axe and a vengance. He scared the bejeezers out of the 2nd group. Besides the Spooky Walk, there was great Halloween food and fun activities (cookie decorating, bobbing for apples, ghost stories and well, the BYU game was on and then the U of U was on to distract Pat mostly...Darn football!). We had so much fun, we didn't want it to be over. Great Party Nana and Papa!!!! And Happy Birthday to Papa Jack!

What a great Halloween you guys have had! I must say, I completely agree when you say that University 23rd was one of the best wards. We love Emily & Clayton too! :) Both your boys looked like they had so much fun trick-or-treating. I haven't dressed up for Halloween since I was 12, because I never know what kind of costume to wear, either. Oh well; I'll always have more fun dressing our kids up! :)

What a great party! Your parents don't look like they've changed in 11 years. You have such a cute family. I loooove Halloween too! Erik sat a chair up in the back of the truck for me this year so I didn't miss it. I'm sad it is over too!!!
