We took a walk on Sunday to see all of the fall leaves. It was beautiful weather and the leaves were all changing. I sure love this family of mine!

Halloween Party

I was one of the moms in charge of Dylan's and Camryn's Halloween Party. We had a lot planned and the kids had fun. But I forget how short their attention spans are. These two have a great teacher this year and are loving school.

Trick or Treating

The night before Halloween we went trick or treating. We got together with our neighbors and roasted hot dogs and then hit the neighborhood. Gavin dressed up as a Rastafarian, Madison a cheerleader, Dylan a pirate, and Camryn was a witch. It rained while we went around the neighborhood but the kids didn't care. The things kids will do for candy:)

Painting Pumpkins

We painted our pumpkins this year. I found a couple of cute kits on sale after Halloween last year so we used them up. I thought they turned out really good! Everyone loved it and it was a lot less messy than carving them.


In between our Halloween activities the kids all had dentist appointments. They were all cavity free:) Which is always nice. I had  to get a picture of Dylan with these cool glasses on. They were all in different rooms so I didn't get a picture of everyone but I thought he was pretty cute!

Trunk or Treat

Our ward had our Trunk or Treat. I searched online for an easy and cheap way to decorate the trunk.
This is what we came up with. Madison and Camryn loved helping me make the teeth and eyes. We took a picture before we left because I knew once we got there I wouldn't have a chance. It was a lot of fun and the kids got lots of yummy candy. That's what they tell me anyway:) I didn't sneak any or anything.

The Zoo

The kids were out of school one day so we took a trip to the zoo with our cousins. They had it all decorated for Boo at the Zoo. So we got to see all the decorations without paying for it. It was cooler weather so a lot of the animals were out and active. My kids loved all the cut outs for picture opportunities.

YMCA Halloween Party

The YMCA had a Halloween Party. It had a mad scientist theme so there was a lot of cool science stuff for the kids to do. They also had the rock wall open and bounce houses. The kids had a great time!
