Halloween Craft Night

A couple of weeks ago, we decided to have a craft night at our house, and a few of our neighborhood friends came over to join.  We made pumpkins out of plates, skeletons out of q-tips, and a candy corn tree.  As you can see, lots of fun was had by all!

Pumpkin Patch

A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to go to the Right Choices Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch in Missouri, to celebrate 2 sweet little girls birthdays.  Camry and Kenlee Lowden both turned 2 within 2 weeks of eachother, so Erin and April had a joint party.  

The kids had fun on the cow train, the hay ride, the slides, looking at the animals in the small farm zoo, eating kettle corn, swinging on tire swings, exploring caves, and picking pumpkins.  Peyton decided she wanted to go in her Halloween costume--why not?

Ward Fall Festival 2013

This year, our ward fall festival consisted of decorating classroom doors inside the church, and handing out candy to the kids who came by, a costume contest, and a chili cook off.  I brought some healthy quinoa chicken chili just to contribute, and wound up winning 2nd place in the chili cook off!  I have never won any awards for cooking before.  Who says healthy can't taste good?

Brody went as the Hulk, Peyton was a kitty cat, and Beckett was a pirate.  Aren't they adorable?  We had so much fun!
