Happy Halloween!

This year Savannah wanted to be Strawberry Shortcake again and Paris wanted to be her sidekick, Raspberry Torte. And then they wanted Madison to be a strawberry to complete the theme...I thought they were pretty cute! We were just going to spray their actual hair, but once I realized they would be wearing their costumes 5 different times this year, I decided to spray wigs so that we didn't have to keep washing out their hair since it's a pain! The wigs were a little crazy and Paris really wasn't a fan, but they were pretty cute little girls!
On Halloween, it looked pretty stormy so we decided to go to the mall to trick or treat in case the weather didn't cooperate for regular trick or treating. We got to the mall 30 minutes after the trick or treating started and every single store (except for like 3) were out of candy already. What a nightmare....a mall full of children and no candy! So we left with a couple of tiny little Tootsie Rolls and luckily the storm cleared up by the time we got home so we were able to get some real candy.

The day before Halloween, Savannah got to be in a little parade at her school and she was so cute!

Pumpkin Carving

Last year, the girls wanted nothing to do with touching pumpkin guts and this year was no different so Daddy got to do all the work once again. And I am really upset with myself because we didn't even take a picture of the final result. Bubba did a great job though and the kids loved watching him carve their pumpkin...with all these girly girls, I'm guessing this might just become the tradition at our house!

Pumpkin Patch!

Every year since we have lived here, we drive down to Santaquin in October and go to the Red Barn to go pick out our pumpkins at the pumpkin patch there. This year they had a fun little maze built for the kids and we had a great time going on the extremely slow tractor ride out to the pumpkin patch and then trying to carry all of our kids and pumpkins back with us! The Red Barn makes the best donuts in the world around Halloween, so of course we had to buy some of those too and I'm pretty sure that was the best part of the whole experience!

Our little ballerinas!

In September, both girls started taking dance lessons and so far they have loved it! They are in the same class and I think that helped both of them be brave enough to give it a try and so far it has been wonderful. Their first performance is in a couple of weeks, so we'll see if they cooperate when it is time to perform in front of other people, but it has been fun to see them practicing all their moves together at home! In these shots, Paris was being slightly more cooperative....surprise, surprise!
