Halloween 2014

It was a great Halloween this year!!

 Abbi, Easton and Camden all chose their costumes this year, and were all really excited. I ordered Abbi's online, and actually hid it in the garage for a couple of weeks because I knew she wouldn't be able to stay away from it. :)

The day started off with Abbi getting to wear her costume to school. She had a parade that I was luckily able to go to. Our car broke down, so luckily my mom came to the rescue and came up and watched the boys while I borrowed her car to run over. I'm really glad I was able to, because I could tell that Abbi was really happy to see me there.

 That night, they got dressed up and went out trick or treating. Luckily, it was a really nice night, and our neighborhood has about a million kids so it was crazy busy outside. Camden was super into it to start with - the first to say trick or treat and thank you. But he got tired after too long and just wanted to be carried. Then Easton was next, wanting to go home. We eventually went back, and even though Abbi still wanted to go trick or treating, I talked her into staying at home by letting her be in charge of handing out candy to the trick or treaters. I think the kids had just as much handing out candy as they did trick or treating!

Pumpkin Carving Part II

After picking up some more pumpkins at the pumpkin patch, we had to carve them!! We got home too late that night and needed to take baths, still, and the week ended up a little busy, but we had to carve them before Halloween! Even though it was just the day before Halloween, we still had lots of fun! Abbi had fun cleaning out her pumpkin, and Josh and I carved the pumpkins for the kids. (Mostly Josh. I just did Easton's, which was super easy.) The kids loved getting to put their carved pumpkins on the porch!

Pumpkin Patch 2014

One of my favorite fall traditions is going to the pumpkin patch.  We didn't even really need pumpkins, but we had to go for the experience!!

In years past, we would go to a pumpkin patch in Springville that we all loved.  Since we aren't as close anymore, we decided to try a farm that was a little bit closer to home.

Evans Family Farm was fun, and had many of the same things (although you did have to pay to get in).  The kids had a blast riding the little train, picking pumpkins, playing in the corn, playing in a little maze made from hay bales, and especially petting the animals. We even got to see a cow eat a pumpkin!  We all had a blast!!
