Once again Justin came down this year to go on the deer hunt with Shane. Nothing to exciting happeded this year - last year they were hero's and rescued two people who had driven off the side of the mountain. Anyway... Shane always looks forward to this week to hang out with his brother and to hunt Bambi's daddy. Shane got one and it is the biggest one he has ever shot so he was pretty happy.
Just one more deer head to hang in the crawl space!
We went to the pumpkin patch again this time with daddy. The kids had lots of fun riding in the cart and running through the pumpkin fields. Mason really wanted a big pumpkin and a white ghost pumpkin. He was also very sweet and made sure his sister has a little pumpkin. We always love taking a family outing to the pumpkin patch and we can't wait for Haloween!
Doesn't daddy look thrilled to be going after Mason in the hay maze!
We had our annual Haloween party and grandma Crook's house. It was fairly nice weather so we were able to have the party in grandma's backyard. Jade, Stacy and their kids and Bill and Phylis were able to be there. Grandma Crook had a bunch of different colored bags the kids could decorate with Haloween stickers to put their candy in.
My two little bugs. Mason was a sting bee and Morgie was a butterfly.
We had a pumpkin pinata and the kids were really excited to gt the candy out of it. We started with the youngest kid and went up from there. Morgie go to go first and I got to help her.
Mason got his turn and hit the pinata a few times. The pinata was a lot harder to break open that anticipated so after all the kids got a change to hit it Ryan finally got all the candy to fall out. The kids all got tons of candy and were happy.
Mason the sting bee, Cameron was mickey mouse, Ellie was a witch and Morgie was a butterfly.
We meet up with grandma Crook, grandma Hilton, Mandy, Ellie, Cameron, Jade, Stacy, Cybil, Cameran and Savanna and went to the pumpkin patch at Pack Farms this afternoon. They loved running around the pumpkin fields and Mason loved running through the maze trying to find Ellie and Savanna. Morgie like to ride with the pumpkins in the cart. This is really the first Halloween that she kind of knows what is going on. Last year she was only a few months old and was not interested. It was fun watching the kids run around and helping Jade pick out the uglies pumpkin we could find.
We took Mason to the Home Depot to do a boat project. Shane knowes a bunch of people that work at the Home Depot since he is in there just about every day buying supplies so he heard about this project and thought Mase would like it. Here is daddy helping Mason built his boat. I was surprised that they actually let kids build the boats with hammers and nails - I was anticipating cardboard and glue.
Here is the builder and his finished project.
There was a firetruck and two fireman there taking pictures with all the kids and their boats.
We went with Mandy, Ellie, Cameron and Grandma Crook to the Dino Park in Ogden today. It was a nice day to go. A little cool but nice to walk around in. The park was all decorated for Halloween. The kids were a little scared to go in a few places because of the decorations. Maybe in a few years we'll have to come trick-or-treating here. Here's the kids comparing their feet to a dinosaurs. Mason loves Ellie. I'm sure she gets tired of him but he just adores her.
