Carving Time

Part of FHE this last week was spent carving pumpkins and we loved every minute of it. Claire enjoyed it better than last year although she still thought it was gross. And Crue just wanted to munch on any piece he could get his cute little hands on.

I have the cutest boys around!!

And one cute little munchkin too!

The Pumpkin Patch

Can I just say how much I love Halloween!! It is quickly moving up my list of favorite holidays. And the older the kiddos get, the more I like it. We made it a tradition a few years ago to visit a pumpkin patch for FHE a few weeks before Halloween to pick out our pumpkins. In my opinion, it is so much better than just picking one out of a giant box at the grocery store. Well this year was a little different. Our Stake had a pumpkin patch down on the stake farm and then put together an activity for all the primary kids one saturday morning. I had to be there because of my calling in the primary and I dragged my kiddos along too. They sang a song, I think they played a game but we got there a little late, picked out pumpkins, and had donuts and apple juice. The kids loved it!

And how is this little boy not the cutest guy around!! I just want to kiss those cheeks and never let go of him.

And since we didn't go to the pumpkin patch for Family home evening, we did something else that Claire also loves to do...we went swimming. Which was an adventure in itself when the fire alarms went off and pool got evactuated. Claire wasn't complaining much - she got to go swimming, see lots of firetrucks, and she had her first dipcone! (Umm ya, I didn't know they still made dipcones either.)
