Halloween Carnival

Grease Family
We had a great time this year at the Halloween Carnival. We dressed up in 50's costumes. I made all of the poodle skirts after deciding that was the best way to dress up in 50's attire. I made mine and showed it to Isaac's mom and agreed to make the rest of them. It was a long few days making costumes, but I think they turned out pretty cute. The boys dressed up like T-birds...they looked pretty hot! We enjoyed the evening. Andrew went trick or treating to the doors at the church house with Aunt Emily. She said he cried at every one of them which makes me nervous for actual trick or treating. We hit the golf ball and then Andrew went running for it to keep it. Andrew and Emily also jumped around in the bounce house. We had dinner of hamburgers and hot dogs and then had a cake walk for cup cake desserts. Andrew was worn out by the end of the night. All in all, it was a great carnival and a fun time spent with family.

More Family Pictures

We had new family pictures taken after Nathan's mission return address. A family friend of Isaac's parents took the pictures and did such a great job. I am very excited about how they turned out!

S'mores anyone?

We love getting together with some work friends of mine to have dinner. We decided to have a hot dog roast and campfire night up Big Cottonwood Canyon. We had a great time! Andrew loved being out in nature. He was very intriqued by the fire and sat down about 4 feet from it to watch it...then the marshmallows were opened for s'mores. He had to put them in the fire too, but was way too impatient for them to be completely done. He grabbed one and shoved it in his mouth and by the end of the night had had four of them. I am quite surprised that he fell asleep on the way down the canyon with that much sugar in him!
