October Fun!

We have done a few fun things lately in celebration of Halloween. We had a ward Halloween party last week on Wednesday. We're on the activities committee for our ward so we don't get to enjoy the parties quite as much as all the guests, but we still had a good time. Brandon signed up to be in the chili cook-off and his chili was the best out of all of them if you ask me.

Costumes were allowed but since we didn't have anything, we just went without. At the very last minute I remembered that I had butterfly wings from Ricks. (Emily, Kristi, and Lisa, that should bring back good memories.) So I ran home and put them on. At least it was better than nothing.

A couple days after the Halloween party we had a pumpkin carving party that Shannon planned. It was so much fun! We all brought Halloween desserts. Me and Bran had to crouch down so Haley could take a picture of our pudding graveyard dessert.

We had dinner together and then carved pumpkins. Here are some pictures of the pumpkin carving experience.

One last thing we did that was really fun was play the Nintendo Wii. It was my first time playing. We hung out with my cousin Julie and her husband Steve on Saturday and me and Brandon did some virtual bowling, tennis, baseball, and other games. It was tons of fun!

You guys are always doing fun things. By the way, I LOVE your playlist!

Emily said...

I love your pumpkins! Please tell me you guys had patterns so I don't feel so un-talented!

Look at that perfection. I am jealous. I love your blog, Tyler was prety sad that you weren't there today.
