October is over!

I should have been writing all through October but I am a total slacker so I am giving you our October fun in a nut shell. We went to Gardner village one day after Tate got out of Kindergarten and looked at all the cool witches, they got spider webs painted on there faces and got some candy corns from one of the little shops. It really was so fun, it was a little cold out side but not bad as you can see Peyton would not where his jacket. It will be  fun memories for me for sure cause it was just me and the boys hanging out one afternoon enjoying what I had missed so much in the fall while living in hot Florida.  October 7th 2013

 Wheeler farm was another fun fall day! I think it was called Pumpkin days and we paid 7 dollars each and got to do a wagon ride, go through the hay maze and then go through the pumpkin patch and pick a pumpkin. Tate had the best time in the hay maze and I loved the wagon ride. It was so beautiful out side I love the changes in the trees in the fall.       October 21st 2013

 This was a pumpkin patch that I went to with Miche Barbosa and a few of the other ladies I have met in the Hyland Lake ward. Me and Peyton could not stay for very long the day we went as a preschool  cause we had to go pick Tate up from school so we went back one night with my mom and Aunt Star.  It is actually an older couples back yard that they deck out with Halloween stuff, they had a little maze/ path that you could walk through that had all these little scary things in corners and even a dancing skeleton that when you walked by started dancing and singing. Aunt Star bought them a little thing of popcorn and they each got to pick out a  huge pumpkin.  October 14th 2013

 Carving Pumpkins was also another highlight! Brenton and Aly came over for a very short 20 min but it was still good to see Brenton sense he got married we haven't seen him much and we have REALLY missed him. Aunt Star came and we love having her around. She helped us carve the pumpkins and then cook the seeds. I have been missing Tex every day but this day I was really missing him! We missed his expert carving and artistic ability.    October 22nd 2013

 The Hyland Lake Trunk or Treat! I love this ward so much I have loved being back to visit it while we have been living here in Utah. I tried to dress up a little for it but it didn't go as well as I had planned. I was trying to be a doll but didn't have enough time to put it all together, o well. The boys looked cute as Spider man and Green power ranger and had the best time going around getting candy and seeing all there friends from church all dressed up. They had really yummy food, soups and hot dogs and a fun little spook alley and some games that the little kids could do. Tate and Peyton loved the spook alley we had to do it 3 times.                  October 30th 2013

 A friend that I went to school with in Elementary through high school lives in my mom and dads ward ( Kristen Nielson now Kristen Hutton) she has a little girl named Sophie that Tate met at school, they are not in the same class but they are both in AM and I guess have become very good friends. We invited her to come play with us at the Murray park right down the street from my parents. Tate was in heaven they all played really good together for about three hours and would have played right on through the evening but I was getting cold and hungry so I had so stop the fun. Again  it was beautiful out side all the leaves changing colors is really amazing! We found a little stream and hidden paths that took us behind my parents house. We through rocks in the Jordan river, hunted for the best leaves and they played on the dirt hills, we really wore them out. My Mom was with me and that made it even more fun we could chat while the kids played. It again will be a fond memory.   October 29th 2013

                             Halloween was so great and so stressful. That morning Tate had a Halloween parade and party at school. We were rushing around in the morning getting him ready and I totally thought that if we got to school 10 min early we would be fine but Tate missed the first little bit of the parade. He got out of school at 10:30 so mom, dad and I went to do a session in the temple. This sweet girl from the Hyland Lake ward ( Hayley King) watched the boys for us. It was really fun to go to the temple with my parents but after we got out it got crazy stressful. The boys wanted to go trick or treating with there cousins ( Vaughn & Teresa's kids) I wanted to stop by my mother in laws and go to a few houses in my neighborhood, but by the time we got out of the temple picked up the kids got them in there costumes it was almost 6 so we just headed straight for Vaughn and Teresa's house. We got stuck in bad traffic and didn't get to their house tell almost 7 and Peyton had fallen asleep. He was not a happy camper when I  woke him up, it was really cold and he didn't want to be in the cold running around like the others. Uncle Vaughn had to run back to their house to get another stroller for him to ride in and then about 10 min before we were all done Peyton decided he was in the mood for trick or treating. Uncle Vaughn put him on his shoulders and told Peyton the magic word was giddy up and then he would take off running which would make Peyton go falling back words and he loved it! We went back to their house and they let us eat and the kids played for a little bit. We then went by Aunt Faye- Dawns fire station to say hi because she had made cup cake and had a little bag for each of them. It was a really fun day but I was so glad it was over. I missed having my friend ( Tex) around for help but we got through it and the boys slept great that night.     October 31st 2013

 We did a few other things that I either did not take pictures of or didn't put in because I already put so many pictures in but we had a really fun October! :) We even decorated Grandmas house and front porch. Now on to Thanksgiving.
