All in the Name of Good Clean Fun!

A few years ago my little sister Cami started a tradition in North Carolina called "Happy Halloweening". It happens in the week or two before the actual Halloween and started the first year she was married mostly as an excuse to have some good, clean fun with just us girls. We decided that being close to halloween, instead of asking for treats, taking treats to people would be cool. We considered leaving treats on the doorstep, knocking on the door and running, but where is the fun and adventure in that? A plan evolved. We would ring the doorbell and when someone answered we would stay just long enough to yell "Happy Halloweenie!" and shove a plate of goodies at them then run before they could figure out who it was. In order to keep our identities secret we would need costumes including wigs, shades, make-up, the works. Most of you know that my sister Cami and I married brothers so we obviously have the same in-laws which include four sisters. So feeling that we needed more than just the two of us we recruited them. Anyway through the years the costumes have gotten worse, I mean wilder (Jessse in black shiny spandex with tropical underwear over them and rainbow knee socks and high heels), and the visits more than just a hand-off and run. (Although the first couple of years we had people wondering). The reason I bring this up is that I was checking my sister-in-law Mollie's blog ( it's "Grant & Mollie" at right) and she had put these pictures of the last adventure up the other day. I wasn't there for that one but Cami and all our sisters-in-law were involved. So here is a chance for everyone to meet my other sisters.
They actually went to the grogery store where the youngest sister, Amelia, (now Sister Guffey in the Pocatello, Idaho Mission) worked. That is Cami with the flower-crown on her head and Mollie in the shades. This is Suzanna. And here is Heather. Finally the whole group. Yes, our sweet little Cami can convince otherwise sane people to go out in public looking like this all in the name of good, clean fun and giving to others! I love you all!
