Halloween week...

On Thursday Lila's school had a costume parade and program. They sang and signed songs that they had been learning about Halloween. Then they did a trunk or treat in the school parking lot. It was so awesome! Lila decided on the power ranger again. There were plenty of princesses so it wasn't a loss...

Lila and her teacher, Mrs. Merideth.
Spiderman candy!
That's my Lila!

Clarissa enjoyed herself.

Today for soccer Kurtis sported this black eye. (You should have seen the other guy!) :P
This afternoon we carved pumpkins in the back yard. We all had a good time!

Trick-or-treating tonight...
The kids and I.
Happy Halloween!

Costume party

On our way to our friend's house for a fun fall costume party!

At the party. Clarissa snuggled up for a nap.

The girls add spooky stickers to paper bags for holding goodies!

The kids play "pudgy pumpkin," a game of immense skill. Whoever can fit the most marshmallows in their mouth and still say "pudgy pumpkin" wins!

Lila wins a cupcake in the cake walk.

Clarissa my cute spider!

Sweet Lila...

Thanks for having us Timbra! We had a blast!

The leaves are falling

The tree out front (that is now covered in snow, but that is another post) is losing all it's leaves. Jeff got the girls a couple little rakes and we've had a blast playing in them!

Soccer Saturday

So far this year we have escaped sitting in any snow storms for Kurtis' soccer games. He has one more left next week. I really like sitting out in the sunshine with the girls for the games and am hoping that the last game is as beautiful as this weeks!

Friends from Down Under

This weekend was wonderful. An old friend from Australia, Clara, and her boyfriend Leith (hope I spelled that right) were visiting and we got to spend some quality time together. They showed up at Kurtis' soccer game on Saturday and then joined us for dinner and catch-up. Then Monday morning I took the girls up to Snowbird where they were staying and we had a good time. We started off with lunch and hot cocoa on the tram deck...

Then we headed off for a bit of a walk. Unfortunately, Lila spilled her hot chocolate and didn't want to go on.

The day was beautiful and so was the company!

There was some spicy music playing outside the Keyhole that we all enjoyed grooving to!

Then we finished up our day making s'mores over a fire in Clara and Leith's room.
It was a wonderful visit. I only hope it's not another nine years before we meet again!
