I love fall, the weather has FINALLY cooled down to a light jacket and boot weather, and the smells of fall are coming all over the place!
We have some pretty awesomely fun pumpkin patches here, so after a failed attempt at one of them (closed for the season would have been good to know before the 30 min trek out there) we finally found one that was so fun!
The pic above, I am showing just how difficult it is to get pictures with all your kids looking. Parents out there, you know what I mean. And non parents to diss us parents for our bad pictures... YOU TRY! haha
Then last week before my momma came into town, we had our ward trunk or treat at church. I love to dress up in families and so I was trying to be cheap and easy this year. I came up with a bug theme. Nat was a butterfly, Boots was a spider, Court was a bumble bee, and I was a lady big. I tried and tried to get scrooge (is there a term for a Halloween scrooge?) to dress up but all I could get him to do was carry a fly swatter. It turned out cute enough, but next year I will have to step up the game! Kimberly came over and painted butterfly face, and wiggly spiderweb face on boots. He wouldn't hold still enough for anything really!
btw, she is up to about 9 steps now. She walks all the time but just isn't willing to give up the lazy ways of crawling. I think it also has something to do with the fact that she is so tubby, she cant balance too long! BUZZZZZ!!
Later that night, Momma got in and we had such a fun visit with her. The kids ate her up! They left tonight and for about 20 minutes after the airport Natalie had tears running down her face. She cried and cried and was so sad she didn't want to talk about it with anyone. Her sweet little spirit was just so tender! We miss you guys already mom and Dad.
While here, we took Courtney on her first Merrigoround ride, although I think she may have already done it this summer, but it was her "first" time and she loved it! All smiles and bouncing around!
So then on the weekend My brother and his wife came into town for the BYU/TCU football game and it was a hoot! I love to have family here!! Dad proudly wore his old BYU uniform from when he played back in the day and it was rad. He rocked it! We lost which stunk, but the company is always the funnest part anyway. Downer of the night though was the Rangers losing the World Series. We wont even go there any more than that.
Soccer games, Show home hunting, eating yummy food, Shopping, and lots of belly laughs made it a great unforgettable weekend! The kids both lost their soccer games and we forced everyone over to watch them running around kids who don't get the first thing about soccer. They sure are cute in their uniforms though!
Seriously, LOVE my family. We come up with the silliest funniest things to giggle about and we had the biggest laugh attack of both Brian and My life on the way home from dinner last night. I was hyperventilating with tears ROLLING down my cheeks. To top it off Brian(husband, not brother) had been growing his facial hair for the Rangers being in the World Series and just shaved it into a nasty Stache that night. As the laughing tears streamed down into his mustache, we couldn't help but laugh even harder.
