We have had such a fun Halloween this year. Friday was our ward Halloween Party and Trunk or Treat. Dinner was yummy and the kids had fun playing with friends and playing games. Trunk or Treats were great, too. On Saturday morning, we carved our pumpkins. Julia decided she wanted a heart nose and heart eyes on her pumpkin. Caroline drew her own face and even cut it out by herself. Brad only helped a little on the mouth. Erik decied he want circle eyes, nose and mouth. The best part of the day was going up to Brad's brother Richard's house. All the cousins came - 10 in all. The kids played and had fun, we all visited together. We had pizza, and appleas and caramel before taking all the kids out trick or treating. It is awesome to have all Brad's family so close. It is wonderful to have cousins close by. All in all, it was a memorable Halloween.

We had such a good time a couple weeks ago at the girls' school campout. Caroline and Julia had a blast playing with their friends. It was such a fun experience sleeping outside in a tent. I really look forward to when the kids are ready for some real camping.
Julia turned 5 years old on September 13. I can hardly believe that my little girl is now 5 years old. We had a really fun princess party at the park with a group of her friends. We also celebrated at Disneyland, where Julia got her birthday gift card. SHe had so much fun shopping for a birthday present. I am so proud at how grown up my little girl is becoming.
