A highlight of the month was Nana and Opa’s visit.
We took them to a pumpkin patch.
Went to Just Add Chocolate.
and introduced them to our favorite game, Soda Pong.
We enjoyed our new backyard as much as possible and the last of the sunny warm weather with the neighbor kids.
There has not been a day that has gone by where the tramp has not been jumped on. Rain, shine, or snow.
My new favorite view:
Always so much 4 square.
The boys had a new favorite game this month, Mario Party. It was hilarious and they entertained themselves for hours on their homemade board of books.
A few days a week Ruby and I took a scooter ride around the neighborhood to look at all the spooky houses. This one being her favorite.
We carved pumpkins in perfect fall weather on our driveway.
We went to our ward halloween party.
Ruby wanted to be a Witch Belle. And would only allow Ashley to do her makeup.
Paul and Macey went to a Dad/Daughter activity.
Crew had some major dental work done.
We learned how to make cinnamon rolls in our new kitchen!
Ruby and I got to run errands with some of our favorite friends.
Peter got baptized and we got to hang out with our favorite 2nd cousins.
Ruby and I took about a million selfies.
These 2 continue to be the cutest and craziest siblings around.
Ruby always comes up with stylish outfits for preschool.
And Friday Mom Hikes. These have become the highlight of my week.
We ended the month with a quite mellow Halloween, I didn’t even know what to do with myself since I wasn’t running around like crazy person.
Normally, I am in charge of multiple parties. This year I ran one station at Crew’s class party. I didn’t even break a sweat.
There was of course the Halloween Parade.
All other years I’ve had to check everyone out as soon as the parade is over to head to Domo. Luckily, Domo decided to save money and NOT do their Halloween party this year. We actually had a relaxing few hours at home before we went Trick - or - Treating.
We still did our normal trick or treating route and we discovered that almost everyone from new neighborhood also trick or treats in our old neighborhood. :)
Always a good haul.
Macey organized her candy into baggies. ha, she does not get this from me.
Another successful October in the books.
