October Randomness

A lot of random happenings going on here.

Halloween continued...

Can we say WAY behind!! My goal is to catch up. I may post in order from where I left off, or I may throw in some up-to-date things to keep myself entertained, but I will be caught up eventually. James was accepted to medical school so my goal is to be caught up to the present day by the time we move (July)!!! Here goes...

 Halloween Party at Nate and Jamie's house. All the kiddos that were there.

 Carving pumpkins at Nate and Jamie's house. 

Boo at the zoo. The kids have a great time walking around and looking at everyone in their costumes, seeing all the cute animals (and stinky) and even getting candy on top of that!

I missed posting this. Back in October 2011, CJ's preschool class went on a field trip to the pumpkin patch. CJ's cousin is in his class and they always know how to have a great time. They got to jump on a big air trampoline, pet the farm animals, ride the tractor, pick their own pumpkin, play on a big slide,  and freeze! It was really sunny, but SO cold. The kids still had a great time.

Halloween party

Every month James' side of the family has a birthday party for everyone who has a birthday in that month. Halloween is always a fun birthday month since all the kids get to wear their costumes and trick-or-treat at all the doors in Grandma's house! The kids love it. Here are a few pictures of that night. I didn't come close to taking a picture of all the cousins. Including my kids there are 35 kids between all of James' siblings!

I serve as an Activity Days leader in our ward. We had a daddy/daughter activity that turned out to be a lot of fun! We served dinner (chili haystacks), and then had a talent show. Most of the dad's and daughter's had some sort of talent that they shared. We of course provided an endless popcorn and candy bar for everyone to fill up on. I'm a little biased, but my favorite had to be of M&M and James and their lip synch to "In the Snow they Melted" by InsideOut. For some reason the video of it has no sound. So bummed!
