We went the weekend before Halloween to Schnepf Farm. It has kinda become a tradition for us. This year was more laid back, just walking the farm and indulging in some yummy kettle corn and cinnamon roasted almonds.
We made the most out of Halloween this year. We started the day by dressing up at noon and heading to Malloween! The kids trick-or-treated from store to store at Desert Ridge Marketplace. It was super fun, but super crowded. I was a nervous wreck about germs, but we tried to keep to ourselves. Worth the trip up there though!

We went later that evening to Trunk-or-Treat in Queen Creek. It is a huge, free event they throw every year and most definitely worth going to! They had live entertainment, booths, rides, activities, and trick-or-treating along an endless row of trucks and cars, sponsored by businesses in the area, decorated for Halloween! Each car gives out candy provided by the Town of Queen Creek, and it was super fun!!!!!
The sweetest story about Princess Aurora painting Gabriella's face. She was asking Gabriella questions, and all of them were where she could nod her head yes or no. Well, she asked Gabriella a question she had to answer, so Gabriella looked at me. I explained to Aurora that Gabriella had a stroke and it took her ability to talk. Aurora told Gabriella, "It's ok princess, you don't need to talk. I'll sing you a song" and continued to sing her 'Once Upon a Dream' in the most beautiful voice ever. It was a fantastic moment, and had this momma in tears!
So it was nice, not doing the traditional door to door. With the kiddos being so little still, the fun of being dressed up all day and having activities included in ToTing made the day more enjoyable!
