Halloween 2017

This year Halloween was a little different. For one, J is in kindergarten so I spend the morning in his classroom helping with his party(my sweet mom watched the girls all morning).  His school did a parade and then they played BINGO, had donuts, made a mummy craft, and read Halloween stories. He and I both had fun together and he enjoyed showing me who his friends are


Back up to 2 weekends before Halloween we went to Josh’s grandparents house and had lunch, decorated Halloween cookies, and Donna had cute Halloween bags, flashlights and candy for the kids. I failed at dressing the kids up in their costumes, but we had a few pictures to show them.

1 weekend before Halloween we went to Josh’s parents house to carve pumpkins and have yummy clam chowder. The dads took over and helped all the kids carve their pumpkins while us moms chatted. It was perfect!

Halloween night we headed to my parents house for a salmon dinner(my mom wanted to make one last BBQ salmon before the snow comes)that we all gobbled up. So good! We trick or treated in the neighborhood right next to her that goes all out for Halloween. Steam machines, fires, movies projected on the garage doors, and one house that totally had a Grey’s Anatomy scene displayed on her driveway! J was a little nervous to feel ‘human ears’ haha J’s favorite part was the man riding a double bike with a skeleton on the back. Lily’s favorite part was going house to house and getting candy.

Claire’s first year of Halloween was great! She didn’t mind her costume, but hated the hat. She lasted 1.5 hours while the older kids trick or treated, so I would say it was a success.

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
