Halloween 2007



We have had such a fun month getting ready for Halloween! Clay was a super creepy "mountain man"(Max wouldn't go near him!), I was a "Halloween fairy", Jack was Buzz Lightyear and to a party he also went as a shark (last years costume), Gracie was going to be a fairy but then wanted to be a fish (last years costume) so she wore it to one party, then we found this Bullseye horse and that's what she loved the most, and little Max was absolutely thrilled with his Monkey costume, he's been wearing it for a couple of weeks straight in the afternoons! It's so fun having kids to dress up! I hope you had a great halloween too!

Halloween Parties!

Paityn's Birthday/Halloween Party! This party was soo amazing! Jen(eight months pregnant) did so many fun things! We got to color a pumpkin picture, eat a yummy brunch, listen to Beverly (Paityn's Grandma) read some fun stories and sing songs, go on a hay ride, eat yummy (darling) witch cupcakes, and were sent home with real pumpkins and some fun halloween toys!

(Really, Jen, I don't know how you do it! Thanks- I love you)

We also went to a fun dinner party later that night at my friend Breeann's home! I took some pictures but they came out really dark. On Monday my friend Summer (thanks- I love you too) and I threw a huge halloween bash at our church. It was soo fun and of course the best part was haging out with all of my friends and seeing their kiddies in costumes! I didn't bring my camera to the party because I left the house in such a rush so if anyone out there could e-mail me some to post I would love it!

I made this funky Hallowen tree and put it in our entryway. It was fun looking for ordaments to hang on it throughout October. I found these little painted gourds at a boutique up in salt lake at Jeni B.'s home. She is uber talented and I can't wait for her Christmas show!

I love these Gourds!
They make me so happy!

Your kids look great! Carter and Taylee were the same monkey as Max...from Old Navy? It was nice because it kept the kids nice and toasty. Have a fun week!
