When I woke up in the morning I thought I was dreaming because my kids looked like this. Then I remembered it was Halloween!
The boys had to use this saw to carve our wart pumpkin. Look how thick the skin is. It was rock hard too!
We all got dressed up and ready for Halloween night.
Everyone came to our house for dinner, trick or treating and cake. Kyson put on his Harley jacket so that he could look like Papa. We were all shocked when Papa showed up as a Harley dude, ha!
Chris and Breanne were Michael Jackson and a little boy. It was freaky how much Chris looked like him!
Grandma and Grandpa Featherstone came over to give us a Halloween treat and eat dinner and then had to get back to their trick or treaters.
And of coarse I made everyone pose for pictures before we went trick or treating.

Little Drae and Camree were matching witches.

Finally it was time for trick or treating!
Sarah, Greg, Daniel, Suzie and I were the trick or treating gang. Rob and the others stayed home to pass out candy.
The kids with some of their friends we ran into while we were out.
Kyson and Caleb were trick or treating buddies.
Camree and Janie tried to keep up with their big brothers. I love this picture. Soon they will be all grown up and I won't be able to watch them trick or treat any more.
After trick or treating we all came back and ate pumpkin cake, yum. Happy Halloween everyone!

Carving Pumpkins

The night before Halloween we decided it was time to carve our pumpkins.
Kyson loved reaching in and pulling the "guts" out as he would say.
Camree on the other hand didn't want anything to do with it. Can you tell by the look on her face? She is such a girl!
She just wanted to color her pumpkin.
All finished with his first pumpkin!
We are ready for Halloween!

Ward Halloween Party

My cute little witch.
My handsome Dracula.

Kyson had tons of fun running around with his friends. Spider man seemed to be popular this year.

Kyson chose all of our costumes this year. As you can see he wanted me to be a cat. Lucky for me it was an easy one!
He wanted Rob to be a skeleton. Now that was not so easy! I looked everywhere for a skeleton costume and all I could were these gruesome, scary looking skeletons. This was the least scary but I still wouldn't let him wear the mask because it would freak out way too many little kids. The party was a blast my kids look forward to it every year!

Mimi and Papa in Town

At the end of October Mimi and Papa were back in town for another wedding. They were just in for the weekend but we were happy to have them. On Saturday we went to Engh Garden's pumpkin patch.
There is a Pirate ship.
Corn maze.
And a lot of fun Halloween decorations. Kyson wanted a picture by this vampire because that is what he is being for Halloween
Camree pulling her witch face, that is what she is being for Halloween.
After that we ate lunch and headed over to Gardiner Village to go on a witch hunt! Kyson loved this witch, he thought it was so funny.

On Sunday we drove up the canyon so that Mimi and Papa could see the changing leaves. Most of the leaves had fallen off the trees but it was still pretty.
Do you like my kids outfits. Let's just say that they dressed themselves or Dad dressed them. Thanks Mimi and Papa for spending the weekend with us. We love you!

Pumpkin Festival at Thanksgiving Point

We went to the Pumpkin Festival at Thanksgiving Point with some friends. Here Camree, Damon, Andrew and Kyson are on a train ride pulled by a tractor. The kids loved it!
This was another little train ride pulled by a smaller tractor. Only Kyson went on this one because you have to ride by yourself and Camree is way too chicken for that.
We even went through the scary dragon/dinosaur thing. The kids were stuck to mom, it was dark and they could here his heart beating! We made it half way through and then snuck out the fraidey cat exit!
I swear it is impossible to get a good picture of Camree right now.
We found a real live Princess at Princess land!
Kyson, Caleb and Damon got to dress up as knights and the girls got to dress up like a princess.

Camree and her one true love Damon! Damon claims that he is going to marry Camree and I think she likes it! I think they make a pretty cute couple even if Camree is pulling a face.

Last we made it through the corn maze but not without an incident! While we were going through the maze every time Kyson came to a dead end he would say,"What the he**. He was far ahead of me so I never heard it but my friends informed me after we were out. We had to have a talk about how that is not a nice word! I swear he didn't learn it from me I am blaming someone else for this one! The talk must have worked because he hasn't said it since. I just had to laugh! Besides the swearing incident by my 5 year old the Pumpkin Festival was a success!
