Happy Halloween

We had a great Halloween!  We went to our Ward's Trunk or Treat party one night and then we went over to Uncle Wade and Aunt Shelly's house for Trick or Treating.  All the kids took home loads of candy and had a fantastic time!

Lacey was a Princess.  She loves to twirl!  I had to take lots of pictures because I made her dress without using a pattern.

Ashton was Spiderman!  He is super strong by the way...

I don't know what Caleb is...they kept changing costumes.

I think Calvin is Napolean Dynamite and Devin is Mr. Incredible.
As you can see, Devin has been working out as well.

I think Carson just got out of the shower and decided not to dress up for Halloween!

Isn't this just the cutest picture? Daisy was a bumblebee.  My friend let me borrow this cute little costume!

Family Hike

Last month Ben had a day off of work, so we decided to go on a hike.  We live at the base of the Franklin Mountains. So it only took us about 10 minutes to get to the hiking spot we went to.  

It was beautiful and didn't even seem like we live in town!  

Here is Daisy before our trip.  I carried her in a carrier on my back.  Ben had Lacey in a carrier as well.

Devin was so excited to go hiking!

Ben and Lacey ready to start!  We were all unloading from the van and getting ready.  We brought snacks and the boys packed their own back packs.

Here is a picture of the start of the hike.  Isn't it pretty?  We didn't do the full hike because it started to get dark, so we turned back.  But we will definitely have to go back and do the full hike!

It started to get dark fast!

Carson, Caleb and Devin
We had to hike back to the van in the dark. Luckily, it wasn't to far and it's a lot easier to go down the mountain than up!

Happy Birthday Devin!

We celebrated Devin's 6th Birthday in September!  He is growing so much!  He has started Kindergarten this past year and loving it!  He does all his homework for the whole week on Monday!
He has also started playing the piano this year also and he does very good.  He memorizes songs really fast!

Calvin and I made the cake for Devin.  He wanted balloons on the cake.

Now we have some talented wrappers in this family!  Funny thing, I went out and bought some really cute birthday wrapping paper just for his birthday and then the boys came out this the presents looking like this!  I think they took all the Christmas wrapping paper and tore pieces off and then pieced it together.  What in the world?!
