"I Ain't Afraid of No Ghost..."

It's Halloween time and we absolutely love it! The kids keep wearing all their fun Halloween clothes, costumes are ready and this year we decorated the outside of the house, fun fun! We are very much in the holiday spirit and doing fun activities any chance we get.  This past week we attended a Korean War Memorial Night (a lady from our ward organized the event). It was such a nice night, a fancy meal with some great speakers, then dancing and prizes at the end. Our family won four prizes from our raffle tickets, more than any other table. People kept calling us the lucky table, ha! Also they asked any kids to come up on stage and Carter ran up there first and started dancing, then other kids came up. He is definitely not a shy boy and he loves to show off his moves.

Who you Gonna Call?

It's much more spooky at night...I even added some sound effects to this video, enjoy.
Selfie and filter time. I got my hair done, the color came out darker than I wanted, but it's almost Halloween right?
Elise rocked some laughing gas at the dentist. She was saying some pretty funny stuff.
Utah State vs Colorado State. Went to the White Out Game with my Dad. It was so fun and more relaxing without the kids. True story. They had to stop the game for over an hour because of lightning. We won the game though...whew!
Daniel's boss snapped this cool shot of the team coming out onto the field

 I had no idea it would be so fancy

The food was sooooooooooo good. The beef was my favorite

11 Months!

Monroe is now 11 months old! How did this happen? No really! Time really does fly, it's true. In just a few short weeks our little baby will be 1. So crazy! Anyways, Monroe can now point at things and she has discovered music and dancing. Definitely my kind of girl. Elise and Carter have been enjoying school. Daniel has been busy with Utah State Football and recently went to Washington for a game. It was fun because he got to have my brother in law Tim and nephews Ethan and Sullivan, attend the game. Good times! We are just gearing up for a super fun and busy October, filled with lots of visitors, fun activities, someone's first birthday and best of all, Halloween. Here we go.....

"Millions of Peaches....."

We have been adapting to school schedules and the weather changing over here. We also took a weekend trip to Wyoming for our new niece's baby blessing. Our peach tree is ready and last year I don't feel like we took enough advantage of it so this year we have been busy, baking, freezing, and canning is next on our agenda. Enjoy some pics....
