Halloween Pumpkins

We love Day Farm!
Every year we like to go and pick pumpkins at Day Farms.
The kids take a few minutes searching the pile for their perfect pumpkin.
And every year the kids have a different idea about what their perfect pumpkin is.
We also like to see how much the pumpkins weigh all together
and see if they outweigh the kids.
This year the pumpkins all together weighed 188 1/2 pounds.
The nice guy let all the kids get on the scale
and they weighed 216 1/2 pounds.
Back in the day the pumpkins use to weigh more than the kids.
Not anymore!

When life get's rough.....

I've decided to start some thing new.
Every once in a while I want to post something spiritually uplifting.
Things have been a little stressful and I've felt a little emotionally drained so I found this video.
It reminds me that, when life gets hard and we feel that trials are always on our back step, it's trials that make us stronger.
I am so thankful for the sacrifices that the early pioneers made so I can enjoy the blessings I have today.

She cut her hair!!

As you can tell Sydney is now sporting a new hair cut. Not my choice!
I was sitting at work when Justin called me.
He said, "The inevitable has happened!"
A million things went through my head,
I was waiting for him to tell me one of the cars died,
or the furnace or water heater bit the dust.
Then he said, "Sydney cut her hair."
I was relieved and nervous all at the same time.
And of course the first question out of my mouth was,
"How bad is it?"
Come to find out, Dad let her have the scissors to cut out a Barbie picture, or something.
While he was sitting right there with her she started cutting off her little ringlets.
He didn't even figure it out until she ran out of the room, trying to hide what she had done, and was being too quiet in her room.
The first thing she said, because she knew she was in trouble was,
"I hate you Daddy, don't tell Mom!!"
When I got home from school I assessed the situation and tried to fix her hair without totally butchering it.
Her new hair cut is cute (a little Mullet-ish) but, not totally how I like her hair.
It could have been worse though!!

Halloween Decorations and Kids

In between Conference sessions this weekend we put up our Halloween decorations.

I have been collecting stuff for the last 10 years and am used to putting it up myself but, Justin has really gotten into it the last couple of years.

The kids had a ton of fun pretending that the huge spider was going to eat them because they where stuck in it's web

The house is kind-of a beacon in the night. I'm sure the neighbors love all the lights.
Justin has a few more tricks up his sleeve for Halloween. I just hope it doesn't scare kids away!
