Our Halloween Week

We had so much fun celebrating Halloween all week long! Gavin and Kyson were as cute as can be! I had a ninja costume for Gavin this year, but he insisted on being a frog again. He looks so cute in it, I couldn't say no. Kyson was a cute little pumpkin.

We started off the week going to the Fall Carnival at my school. They got to ride the swings, fish for candy, hocky and more.

We took a break from Halloween and enjoyed a little Christmas weather! We had so much snow! Kyson just liked to eat it. Gavin liked to throw a snowballs and make snow angels. Snow was all gone that afternoon, but it was a fun little change. I can't wait for more!

We tried a new thing this year that was SO MUCH fun! There is a home in Lindon that has a huge train track set up all over their property. They turned it into a "Haunted Train" and Gavin loved every minute of it. Kyson on the other hand kept saying "All done". Maybe next year he'll like it more.

I love Halloween because it is fun to see my kids enjoy it, not because we have to dress up! I hate dressing up, but I have to do it for school. I dressed up in Casey's soccer clothes and it was a hit! Here is my other half, Ruth Bourne.
Cute Kyson "Hand over the candy, or someone might get hurt!"
Carving pumpkins

Trick-or-treating! I was so excited to take these boys out trick-or-treating! They loved it. We went and visited a few family and friends first, and Gavin started getting the hang of things, and kept saying "Lets go do more trick-or-treat!" We also went around our neighborhood and came home with quite a stash!
They also had fun giving out the candy
Happy Halloween! Can't wait for next year!

Bear Lake

Over Fall Break I went with my family to our condo in Bear Lake. It was so much fun to be there with almost everyone. We were missing a few husbands, because even though the rest of us have work/school off, not everyone does, so Casey, Doug and Bob were stuck at home working. We missed them, but still enjoyed being with family.

On our way up to Bear Lake, we stopped off at the Children's Treehouse Museum in Ogden. Gavin of course found the trains, and could have spent the whole time there...

We did many fun things at the condo including swimming...
"I not scared mom!"-Gavin (he was so proud he could walk around without floaties, and then he slipped and was "scared" and had to put the floaties on. Kyson was so cute walking around in his.

We spent a lot of time at the park...thanks to Uncle Logan or Grandpa Bill who would take them all there!

The 5 "big" kids making a train: Gavin, Damon, Kyson (yes! He is finally a big kid...or at least he thinks he is) Kylie and Braxton.
We loved spending time with Grandma...
and riding the Suri's

wrestling Uncle Logan
And snuggling with Aunt Camille
On our way out of town, we did actually go see the lake for a few minutes.

And get a famous Raspberry Shake

On the way home we stopped at the Aeorospace Museum to see the big planes. Gavin loved it.

Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for the great trip!
