Halloween Part 2

We had our ward trunk-or-treat and chili cook-off on Monday. The girls had fun and it is so nice that they are getting bigger and can go back as many times as they want (by themselves) to get more food and to find their friends.

She broke one of arm holders. Good thing she did it before she had her school parade.

This girl was hilarious. She never broke character and talked, walked, and acted just like a little old lady. Such a cute girl.

The girls were able to take their costumes to school and have a parade and a party. They had so much fun except for when Jo Jo broke her other arm holder. Luckily Melonie was there to come to the rescue and fix it. I talked to a couple of people who felt so bad for miss Jo Jo because she was crying during the parade. So sad. She felt better after it was fixed and was ready to party with her class.
Here she is when she was happy.

Halloween night was fun. We walked around our neighborhood and got way too much candy.

We went out early and then came home and watched a movie and ate popcorn. The crazies took turns opening the door for the trick-or-treaters, who got the candy that the girls had just received from their rounds.

Utah and Halloween Part 1

We went to Utah for the annual Halloween party. Dan had to work and couldn't join us, but we still had fun. We didn't have any school on Friday and so we were able to leave on Thursday. (Anything we can do to add a full day of fun.)
It was spent playing "Red Rover"

"Duck, Duck, Goose"

And running around making others cry.

Friday night I had a date with three of my crazies. We got Subway and "Hocus Pocus" and had us a fun night.

Saturday we had our party. The Robison's and the Lee's couldn't make it, but the rest of us had a blast. GiGi, of course, napped during the party, so there are no pics with her. She wouldn't have been very festive if she was, because the little crazy refused to put any sort of costume on.
My girls.

Jo Jo and I made her wings. Well, I did, but she gave her input and helped me with a couple of things.
With me.


Big people.

Some games.

We always have so much fun when we make the trip and this was no exception.

October Minus Halloween

We went to the park on warm days.

Sometimes we just went outside to enjoy the sun and leap pad.

I am in a couple different carpools this year. I can't tell you how blessed I feel because of this fact. The past two years have involved a lot of driving, and it is so nice to have a break. Even when I have a car filled with crazy girls!

Annie left me this note.

It made me teary eyed. Oh how I love that little girl!
My mom is very much into geneology and called me one day to tell me that miss Ty, with her made-up name, has a great, great, great, great (something like that) Uncle who had the same name but with an I instead of a Y. Completely random and awesome.

The girls had their primary program. They all had their parts memorized (most of the primary didn't) and did so wonderful. Sorry about the poor quality, but I recorded it sideways and had it rotated.

The Best Weekend

This last weekend was the best!!
Two of my lovely sisters and their kids came to visit.

They even cleaned a little bit.

Morgan watched her beloved Saints play.

She got a little crazy.

Here is proof of the fun we had. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time.

I love these ladies like crazy.

I wish that we lived closer so we could see each other more often. But I will take a weekend like the one I got. So much fun and we were so sad to see them leave today.
