Yesterday, we went over to help the Grandparent's rake up the leaves in their back yard. We made a huge pile and the kids just couldn't resist the temptation to jump in them! They had so much fun, they almost forgot they were working!

We took the kids to the Main Street Trick-or-Treat parade again this year. It was a bit of a joke. The lines were terrible! It took us an hour and a half to walk less than 1/2 a mile! The only fun thing about it was that someone had fixed up an old truck to look like Mater. It was sooo cute! Brendan absolutely loved it! But he was a little upset that Lightning McQueen wasn't there. He kept asking "Where's Ka Chow, Mom?"
JR was Storm Shadow from GI Joe.
Brendan went as Buzz Lightyear. He was so adorable!
Sammy went as Little Red Riding Hood.
Christian was Snake Eyes from GI Joe.
We let the older kids carve pumpkins of their own this year. I was a little apprehensive about it, but they did a great job and didn't lose any fingers!
JR carved this one. He did an awesome job!
Sammy did this one. She had so much fun with it!
This one is Christian's. I'm still not exactly sure what it's supposed to be, but he had fun designing it!
I found this pattern on the internet. It turned out better than I expected!
It's not really Halloween until we make some fun treats! Sammy helped me make these cute little cupcakes for our Ward Trunk-or-Treat. I love how she is always so eager to help!
Every year the 3rd Grade has an Artist in Residence program. This year they learned about Mexican folk dancing. Let me tell you, JR was less than thrilled that he had to dance in his program! Especially since he had to dance with a girl!!! I told him that he was just going to have to get used to it, because someday he is going to like girls. He just rolled his eyes at me! He is too funny!
The boys' Pack Meeting in August was the Raingutter Regata. They had a blast building and painting their boats! It's just too bad that it was so windy that day. They had a hard time keeping their boats from tipping over. It didn't seem to upset them though!
