Halloween Time!!

This year has been a BLAST getting ready for Halloween! Below are the pics that show what I'll talk about! We started by making a paper chain countdown and they would cut one off every day the closer we got to Halloween! We made it during Conference and boy was it a success! They also had a lot of fun decorating the windows with stickers!
Oh and by the way Beckham rolled over on October 18th...woot woot!
We made little ghosts for our trees inside and out...Brit made this Jack o Lantern all by himself and it melted my heart...isn't it the cutest one you've ever seen? We went to the local pumpkin patch and it was FREE! The boys had a blast looking at animals, duck racing, bean bag throwing, etc. What a party!
Ty had to work a lot in Santa Fe this month so we went up a few nights and stayed in a hotel with him! What a blast! The boys had the time of their lives. We got to go to the Hilton next door and swim and on the walk over the boys would talk about all the coyotes in the mountains:) What a fun little getaway! Too bad this was the ONLY picture I got.
Britain was a Ninja Turtle and Braden was his favorite animal, a lion..love it! Beckham was a bumblebee and boy is he sweet as honey!!! The boys had a few friends over for a Halloween Party and played games and had a dance party! I sat with the boys on the computer and let them pick which Halloween treat we wanted to make, they chose EYEBALLS! We also did a few spiders! They were yummy!
Instead of carving this year, we let the boys paint their pumpkins and they loved mixing colors and painting up a storm!

Enjoying the goods! What a great great Halloween season, we are so sad it's over! Holidays are so much more fun with kiddos around! Now to think of some fun Thanksgiving crafts to keep us busy....
