Happy Halloween

It's been a Happy Halloween at our house, but a long one too. I'm kind of glad to see it over with. I definitely have some pretty cute little kids all dressed up.

Our festivities included watching the school parade, a class party for Big Man, a trunk or treat at the school, and a carnival for the finale. It was a lot of stuff, but lots of fun.

The pretty kitty. Or whatever you want to call her. I think it's supposed to be a leopard. She thought she was pretty hot stuff when she got to use some of mom's makeup for the whiskers and nose.

The penguin suit can be retired this year. All four of my kids have worn it. It's been a good costume for our family :) Baby M wasn't real happy with it. She couldn't move. Oh well, at least she was warm.

I took these pictures of Baby M yesterday. She's wearing her sister's cat ears and looked adorable.

Happy Halloween everyone.

Trick or Treating in Nephi

All of the stores on Main Street in Nephi did Trick or Treating today. They handed out candy and tickets. You used the tickets to redeem prizes at the park. The kids had a great time. They had fun getting dressed in their costumes.

If you can't tell Big Man is Jack Sparrow. Little Man is Ironman. Little Princess is a leopard, or 'kitty cat' as she describes it. It was cute. I love Halloween. Kids make it fun and exciting.

Just to make you smile...

Baby M is all hands these days. Anything that is within her reach is fair game. She didn't get this on her head by herself, her brothers thought it would be funny. I can't believe how quickly she's growing up.

Pumpkin Patch

Me and the girls are sure having fun going on Little Man's field trips with him. Today was the pumpkin patch in Nephi. We went on a short hay ride, picked out a pumpkin, posed for some pictures, let the kids run through a 'hay maze' and ate some cookies. It was a fun filled hour :)

Hocus Pocus...A night of dance

Little Princess has only been in dance a month, but tonight her dance teacher had a Halloween dance recital. None of them really knew the routine, but it was still cute anyway. Her age group got to be pumpkins. I was a little worried about her sitting backstage the whole time for the rehearsal and recital, but she did great. She was pretty pleased with herself when it was all over. What a cutie.

7 months

I couldn't resist taking a picture of Baby M today. She was 7 months a couple of days ago and I forgot to get a picture for her book. I put a bow in her ponytail today and she looked adorable. I can't believe how big she's getting. Each stage is so much fun.

Small Town Soccer

We've spent our Wednesday and Thursday nights during the month of September at the city park for Soccer. Both of the boys played and LOVED it. There were 6 teams and three fields. It was very low key and laid back. It was supposed to be over last week, but because of the snow last week we finished up tonight. Jeff got some good action shots of Little Man tonight.

Big Man was too busy socializing and watering up to get any good action shots. It's amazing the difference between last year's soccer and this year's soccer for him. In Riverton he whined about going to most games and didn't enjoy it. This year he had a blast. I signed him up mainly for the social aspect of things (and the exercise), but he ended up being really aggressive and good. He scored goals in several of the games. It was fun to see him have fun with it.

Here's the little cheerleader. She spent most of her soccer time at the playground.

In a small town it's kind of fun to get involved in something like this. Everyone in town is at the park for the games. I met lots of new people and had fun talking to people I already knew.

Fire Station Field Trip

We went to the Fire Station today with Little Man's preschool class. Me and the girls got to go too. It was fun.

He wouldn't try on the jacket, but he got to hold it.

I didn't take my good camera because it was out of batteries, so I kept getting a glare, but this is his whole class plus the younger class.

I put Baby M in her first Halloween outfit. It's a size too big, but she definitely won't fit in it next year, so it'll work. She looked adorable.
