::Two weekends ago Brody got to trick or treat for the first of many times this year at the Zoo. It was a really cute thing for the kids- they loved it! I made a liar out of myself again- Brody did wear the same costume as last year (but just for that event). I'll blog about it sometime.
::We went to a Halloween play date at a friends house and we were supposed to bring a halloween food so I brought mummy dogs. My friend Shirley had them at her halloween party last year, that's where I got the idea.
::Since our ward at church is having a party this week for Halloween we went to a pumpkin patch this weekend to get our pumpkins for it. It was such a fun/cute farm- I'll have to blog about that too sometime.
::Now that the weather is cooler, I've been doing lots more photo shoots. I couldn't ask for a prettier place to take them! Kentucky is gorgeous.
::At that Halloween playdate I mentioned, costumes were optional. I wasn't sure if anyone would be dressed up so to be safe I threw the boys capes on. Didn't want to over do it in case no one else dressed up (and no one else did ;) They look so stinking cute in them.
::Last night, like a fool, I ate a snowcone since I was craving sweet. Then I was freezing and hot chocolate was in order. Tony and I bought a coffee maker several years back just for this time of year- and just for hot chocolate. I love that it's so cold here hot chocolate is good till the last drop. (in AZ I would always get too hot halfway through ;)
::A nice note in our mailbox from the missionaries.
::Hyrum all bundled up for bed. You should see him with the hood on and feet and hand covers on. He looks like the kid on A Christmas Story! haha! Oh, and he's obsessed with remotes and cries when I take them. So he gets that one that we never use.
::Musicians in the making.
:: the pretty sky on the way to Boo at the Zoo.
::That time we all got sick, but before I got sick, and Brody was the only sick one, Hyrum did this while I was tending to Brody. Stinker!
::one of our favorite traditions once fall hits is going to Yankee Candle in the mall and picking out our fall scents. mmm.
::H climbing in the toy/diaper basket
::Anyone else feel happy when they see vacuum lines in the carpet? Or am I the only weirdo around here...
::Tried my first cake pop at Starbucks and also threw in a Red Velvet whoopie pie to try and I was DISGUSTED! AHHH! They were schnasty. Hopefully cake pops don't always taste that bad.
::We tried our hand at the McDonald's monopoly game this year. haha! (Should I be spreading this around?) Anyway don't worry, they ran out of stamps one day and gave Tony a huge bag full of them. So we really didn't eat there more than a few times during the course of the game. Which is more than we usually do all year...ish. It paid off though, we won several free meal items and a $5 Wal-mart card. lol
planning Hyrum's birthday party & figuring out my halloween costume. It's funny, I spend the whole year with an idea in mind then Brody decides he wants to be something- then I want Hyrum to match him- then Tony wants to- then I'm the outcast. So I usually end up being something completely different than what I planned on all year but o well. If not that, I just decide last minute I'd rather be something else (like last year). We'll see how this year pans out- it's not exactly set in stone as of now what I'm going to be and all that jazz.
