Halloween Activities

October 23, 2014
Lily had her halloween program at school. She did a great job! They changed songs into halloween songs and she loved singing them for us.

 She also had a part she got to say

 Potts came

 And Grandma came too

 Great job Lily!

Witches night out was a blast. I took Tate since I was still breastfeeding, but he was amazing the whole time! I always love a night out and these ladies sure make it fun! Cant wait for next year.

We had our annual FHE halloween party and it was great as always. We had fun playing games with everyone and the kids loved it! 

Right before the party started Dave asked what he should wear. I had on scrubs so he joked about being my patient. One thing lead to another and right before the party we decided to do this....

We thought it was funny, but not sure everyone else got it :) Not sure why, but I haven't pictures from that night. Guess when you are having fun there is no need for pictures!

We went to spooky hallways at Daves school this year and it was not as fun as last year. There were so many people, not enough candy, and it was really warm. The kids liked it though.

Paisley had a preschool parade and singing program. She did a great job and was so cute and excited while she sang! 

 Finally we went trick or treating on halloween night with the cousins. It was a warm night so I sat on the porch with Tate. Here are the pictures of the kids costumes that I got. Hoping someone got a picture of Tate, since we missed getting him!

This year to pick pumpkins we headed to Petersen Farms to head out into the field. It was such a blast and very revealing of each of our kids personalities. Here are a few of the fun things we did....

 Oakley picked up the first pumpkin she saw and was good

Paisley kept finding some and adding more not sure which to choose

 Lily wanted the biggest pumpkin she could find, but the rule was you had to get it into the cart
Dad was a softy and helped a little bit.

And a moment or two of pause to get the strength back

 She finally made it with her determination 

 Then the kids played in the haystacks except Kylie...

 Who was searching back and forth thru the rows looking for that perfect pumpkin. She had to find the right one and when she finally did she was prouder then she could be.

 Then we played in the corn box

 Tate also got his very own pumpkin

 The next day we were able to carve/paint our pumpkins outside because it was so warm

We didn't end up getting pictures of all the pumpkins, but most of them fell apart due to the pattern we tried or they didn't get finished. It still was a lot of fun!

One night the older girls had a birthday party to go to and so we took the younger kids to the park for a picnic dinner. We pushed them on swings and it was like pure joy. Sometimes you forget how much joy can come from simply swing on a swing. It was fun to watch them and experience the simple pleasures of life for a little while.

Temple Square Outing

Lily got to go to her first temple square concert with dad now that she is 8. They had a great day and Lily loved getting to be so close and see Gammie play. Thanks for the tickets Gammie!
