Happy Halloween everyone!!!

Every year my grandfather's independent living center sponsors a really fun Halloween party. It is so much fun and the residents that live there love to see the kids. They all buy tons of candy and then sit in chairs/wheelchairs in the dining room and pass it out to the trick or treaters. They put together an awesome haunted house, and provide hotdogs,punch, and cookies for atleast 100 kids. This year they had a phenomenal balloon artist. He was the best one I have ever seen!
Check out this spider he made for Reagan!

They also have a costume contest:
Tanner was Nacho Libre and Brady was Ramses (thankyou to the amazingly talented Sarah!!!)


Kiki and Reagan went as farmers to Zeus's cow. We made "utters" and he wore a cowbell. They carried milk buckets and wore overalls and John Deere hats.

The farmers and the cow won the trophy for best costume.
