Witches Night and Halloween in Vegas with a Baptism

I got invited to this thing called "Witches Night Out" with some friends. This place called Gardner Village does it every year, where you come with friends all dressed as witches. It was so much fun, there was dancing and shopping and if you where not dressed up, you stood out. I actually got invited by two different friends, so I went both nights and had a blast. We decorated our hats and my friend, Rachel taught me how to do my skirt and I was happy about my costume, minus the fat pregnant belly, but you can't avoid that this year. This is the first night I went there was the 5 of us and we had way too much fun! I haven't laughed that hard in a while.
This is the 2nd night, I went with my friend Rachel and a bunch of her friends and it was a ton of fun as well.
Okay so, for Halloween this year we actually went to Las Vegas because my niece was getting baptized on Halloween, so we went trick-or-treating there. By the way AWESOME trick-or-treating weather, you don't have to find warm clothes for underneath the costumes ha ha. We also went to this amazing neighborhood, where every house was decked out. They made the decorations I have seen here look like dollar store specials. These people go ALL OUT! They where all hanging out on their drive-way's having get togethers, passing out candy, some people where handing out what they call "sliders" which basically a mini hamburger out to everyone. This other house had this haunted house through their backyard you could go through. It was so neat, we had a great time! My kids picked there costumes. . .

Nyah was a witch, but it had to be a pretty witch, I was under specific instructions not to make her ugly.
Keira was a pumpkin which is totally her. She didn't want ANY make-up on so we had to compromise a little.
Jayda, didn't pick cause we had a costume for her, she is a princess, but added her own flare. Nanny brought vampire teeth for all the kids with her and this one REFUSED to take it out of her mouth. So, I guess she is a vampire princess.
Nyah LOVED going trick-or-treating with her cousins, she was so excited.

Here is all of us, Jared was obviously "Clark Kent" and I wore my witch costume.

Here is everyone at the baptism earlier that day. Nothing like going from spiritual Baptism to Halloween in one day.

We stayed in Vegas for a few days and one day we went to this casino that had this big sporting goods store and a HUGE fish tank, this kids loved it. Apparently they also have mermaids (real people) in there on the weekends but we went on Monday so we didn't see the mermaids. Nyah was very disappointed about that.

Jayda was mesmerized

After the fish tank we did the sporting goods and seriously who taught my girls how to shoot guns, this is just scary if you ask me. Of course they are very girly, even for girls.

Nyah with her cousins, Aisia and Addy who then showed her how to actually hold a gun.

Jayda just flings the gun all over the place, while Keira didn't have much interest in the guns. Seriously who taught them how to hold a gun. . .

We had a great Halloween this year, now on to the next holiday.
