Witches Night Out

Last weekend my friends and I went to Gardiner Village to WITCHES NIGHT OUT!  It was a lot of fun...there are some crazy people out there! 

The Crew! 
 (When I asked Brian how I looked in my witch outfit he said "pregnant".  looking at this pic..its true!)
 We saw these OUT OF CONTROL witches and HAD to get our picture with them.  So funny....

Pumpkin Carving-inator!

Last night we did some pumpkin carving!  Really, Brian did most of the carving...the girls weren't too keen on the idea of sticking their hands in the mushy stuff!  They still had fun though!

 Brian did a great job!  His Doofenshmirtz (from Phineas & Ferb) pumpkin turned out AWESOME!!!!
 Kaitlyn and I decided to paint our pumpkins. 

I love Halloween!

Halloween Cookies!

Kaitlyn and I had a great day together.  We made Halloween cookies!  This is fast becoming a tradition for the two of us.  Kaitlyn absolutely loves making sugar cookies, rolling out the dough, using the cookie cutters, and of course...THE FROSTING!  Each major holiday I've been finding fun cookie cutters and we spend a day making festive cookies. 
Today we made ghosts, pumpkins, and bats!  It was very fun and we both had tummy aches by the end from all the licks of frosting and eating the "broken" cookies.

Annual Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

 One of our favorite Halloween traditions is our annual trip to Maybe's Pumpkin Patch!  We took the girls last night and they had a BLAST running around in the dirt and picking out their pumpkins. 
 My brother came with his family too.  Here is Hailey with her cousin Kenzie.

Bingham High School class of '00!

This month we went to Brian's HS Reunion.  It was a fun to spend the evening with a lot of our friends, especially the ones we haven't seen in a while.  10 we're getting old!

Venezuela, Caracas Mission

At the beginning of the month we attended Brian's mission reunion.  It was fun for me to meet some of the people Brian served with and way fun for Brian to reminisce with old buddies.  Brian especially loves to visit with his Mission President.  President Webb is an amazing man and Brian rally looks up to him.  Even though it was way the heck up in Ogden, it was still way fun!
