Since we have lived in South Weber we have always gone to our neighborhood trunk-or-treat and then after we take the kids around the neighborhood to trick-or-treat. This year we were excited to have all of Kim's family come with us. We had a lot of fun! Rob even helped return a straying goat back to it's pen. What a man! After the trunk-or-treat we came back to the house and had some fun halloween food. Homemade root beer in a cauldron with dry ice was the hit of the evening. We had mummy hot dogs and jello worms. We then took the kids around the neighborhood. Rob took Cambrie and her friends and Kim took the younger kids. At the end of the night the bags were full. If we would have let them, Cambrie and her friends would have gone late into the night. We had to explain to them when the lights our out and it is past 9:30 pm it is time to call it a night. She ended up with two bags full of candy and a lot of fun memories.

Painting Pumpkins or Ourselves...

We have made it a tradition to paint our halloween pumpkins each year. This year things were crazy busy leading up to Halloween, so we finally got around to doing it the day before Halloween. It is fun to see how each one turns out. Cael and Mykenna competed to see who could put the most paint on their pumpkins, Parker's favorite color is red so of course his would be that color, and Cambrie really put alot of thought into hers and had a cute pumpkin face. They are all great little artists and we had fun getting the paint all over us...well some of us. Thanks Dad for letting us wear your cool shirts to paint in. Dad wasn't home to say "yes" or "no" on the borrowing of his shirts. ;)

Ward Halloween Carnival

The past couple of years the young men and young woman of our ward put on a Halloween Carnival for the younger kids. It is always fun to take the kids. So we got them dressed up and headed to the church. We were also watching my sister, Kellee's girls so they came with us. They had a great turn out, which made things a little chaotic, but fun still the same. Plus the kids got to wear their costumes more than once. Cambrie dressed up as a nerd. (My brother Ken told her that wasn't a very hard costume for her.) ;) Parker was a mad scientist. I found some glasses at the dollar store which totally made the costume. Gotta love the dollor store. Mykenna was a cheerleader and Cael was a doctor. It was a great time.

Field Trip to the Zoo with Parker

I was so excited to be able to go with Parker and the rest of the 3rd grade class to Hogle Zoo on their field trip. Thank you Karee for watching the kidlets. :) The weather was supposed to be wet and cold, but it turned out to be a nice day. I couldn't ride on the bus because there wasn't enough room, so Parker decided to ride with me to the zoo. It is so great to have one on one time with each of the kids. Even though he isn't much of a talker we had a great ride down to Salt Lake together. We arrived before the bus so Parker played with another classmate that had arrived early as well to pass the time. Once the rest of the kids arrived I was assigned 3 other kids and we headed off to see the animals. Parker liked the giraffes the best as well as playing on the playground. I could barely get him to stop and eat some lunch. It was neat to see some of the new babies that had been born. We had a great time! What an awesome day to spend with my bud. Love ya Parker!

Park City Kimball Art Center

One of Rob's students told him about a Lego exhibit in Park City at the Kimball Art Center. Parker loves anything to do with Legos so we made it a family outing. It was amazing what this artist has made with Legos. The kids really enjoyed looking at everything. I must say, I am not a fan of the artwork not being enclosed in something. I kept having these horrible images in my head of Cael tripping and smashing a piece of art, or Parker trying to add a lego to another. But all went well and it was great! We then headed over to the outlets and did some quick shopping and grabbed a bite to eat and headed for home.
