What a fun and exhausting day! My mom came over on her way to work and painted the kids' faces. Thanks mom! They looked great!
 We went to Brayden's school for his parade.

 We headed back to school in the afternoon for Brooklyn's parade. The girls loved playing on the playground together:
We caught a glimpse of Brayden in his classroom while we were waiting for Brooklyn's parade:
 After school we had fun getting ready for the evening. Of course pictures were in order, and thanks to my neighbor's fun front yard we had a perfect backdrop for our pics:
Finally we headed out. This is the first year we stayed in our neighborhood for the entire evening. It was fun to see all the neighbors and it was warm enough the kids made it through the whole neighborhood! Afterwards we quickly stopped at the Jensen's for hot chocolate and donuts, then headed home to spend time with Josh's parents and Michael and Natalie's family.
 Brynlee spent over half an hour delicately setting each piece of candy on the counter. It was really cute!

Oh Brielle...SLOW DOWN!!!

This little girl will not quit thinking she is bigger than she is! She's only 6 1/2 months old! I was cleaning her room while she was playing in her crib. When I turned around this is what I saw!
 What?! When did that happen??? Now that's the only thing she wants to do...stand up on everything!
 She also thinks that planking is pretty cool. I snapped this picture right after she was is a horizontal planking pose. She loves to push herself up and is finally getting to where she wants to go!

Painting Pumpkins

Josh and I really aren't big pumpkin carvers, so instead of carving we decided to let the kids paint! They loved it!

Movie Night!

We bought the 3D version of The Little Mermaid while at Costco. So of course we had to have a movie night and watch it! The kids don't do well keeping the glasses on, so we watched the blueray disc instead. The loved that they got to eat dinner while they watched it...that NEVER happens so it was fun.

3rd Annual Minute to Win it Halloween Party!

My family came to our house for our annual Halloween Party. Since the Ericsons are still in our basement we ended up taking pictures inside and eating and playing all the games in the garage. It was perfect! Plenty of space and it was warm enough that it worked. The games were a lot of fun and we all had a blast!

Gardner Village

Josh was gone for another BYU game, so we headed to see the witches at Gardner Village. Kay came with us and we met up with Sean and Rachelle. It was beautiful weather and the kids had a blast!

Brielle continues to grow and want to do more than she can! She LOVED the cozy coupe car and didn't want to get out...even when she slipped underneath it.

Cute Little Bryn!

The kids were at school so Brynlee helped me load the pumpkins in the wagon and take them to our porch. She's so photogenic and I love that she's always posing for the camera.
 We had forgotten to get out the cake I bought for Brynlee on her birthday, so we got it out and sang to her!
