Halloween week

Who knew October was going to be so crazy busy! I haven't been home at night since the 14th... and I still have a few days to go. But I wanted to blog about the fun stuff, so here we go!

I was in charge of the ward halloween party, and my mom and Dave were automatically on the committee :) Dave challenged some 7 year olds to a jello eating contest (yes, he won).
Our pumpkins :) Alex carved his own this year (a bat), mine is the "boo", and Lydia's is the cat. I don't know why they look like we lit bonfires in them...
Alex, or Anakin Skywalker (I'm SO sorry to the star wars geeks if I spelled that wrong...)
Lydia the spider (thank you thank you to Melissa for both costumes, I did tweak the spider a little)
And I tried to make her hair a web :)
Lydia was really sick about a week ago. I told her she needed to rest so she could go trick-or-treating, to which she replied "it's OK, you can just take my bucket out for me and give me the candy". Awesome. Happy Halloween everyone!

Fall is our favorite time of year around here...
The leaves...
When mom forgets your jacket in the mountains and you have to snuggle
The giant pumpkin parties (this one is almost 1000 lbs!)
Homework assignments that consist of gathering as many different colors of leaves as you can
Having the putt putt golf place all to yourself
yup, love fall
