Our ward Trunk or Treat was tonight so I took Ryleigh. She really got into it. She wanted to eat the first piece that was put in her bucket right away. I put it back in her bucket and we continued on. At every trunk, she would reach her hand out, they would give her the candy and she would put it right into her bucket. She carried her bucket the whole time. Everyone thought she was so cute in her lamb costume.

She didn't keep the hood on for very long.

On the way home she had her bucket in her lap. I turned around and she had a little tootsie roll opended just a little, taking tiny bites. I pulled over to take the wrapper off so she wouldn't eat it. Oops, I was too late. Tootsie roll was gone and no wrapper in sight.

Miss Independent

Ryleigh decided this weekend she was not a big fan of wearing clothes. Numerous times she was caught taking her clothes off and then would freak out when we tried to put them back on her. Luckily the diaper never came off, although she tried several times. And as I am typing this, Devin is yelling from downstairs that she is trying again:)

While I was at work today, Devin found her trying to put her clothes back on and put Mom's shoes on. She had pulled several clothes out of her drawer and had one arm in a shirt. He didn't get a picture of that, but did get a picture of her trying to put Mom's shoes on.

Please excuse her with no clothes. I just had to share this picture. She just fell out of the shoes.

Pumpkin Carving

Then we carved pumpkins on Sunday evening. Devin got his all cleaned out and said, "Ok, I am done." So I had to carve both pumpkins. Ryleigh had fun playing inside the pumpkin and watched the whole time I was carving it.

The finished products-

Cookie Decorating

Saturday evening we decorated Halloween cookies. Ryleigh was not too into it.

"It's A Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown"

We took Ryleigh to a pumpkin patch yesterday. She loved the hundreds of pumpkins that she saw on our hay ride and didn't want to get in the car to go home when it was time. Even though Dad's huge pumpking was sitting right next to her. I forgot to get a picture of it. You will have to see it when it gets carved.

Relaxing Long Weekend in Florida

This summer when we flew home from Florida we got bumped on our flight and ended up with two free tickets. Devin found a NICE and CHEAP resort in Orlando on-line. We decided to use our tickets to head to Orlando for a long weekend. We didn't do any of the big parks because Ryleigh isn't old enough and it wouldn't have been worth it. We did a lot of swimming and relaxing. Nicole, my sister, and her kids came down from Georgia to join us. We had a lot of fun and it was nice to get away.
Ryleigh loved to be able to walk into the pool.

One of the pools at the resort had a 2 story water slide that Devin and Blake had fun going down.

Blake and Ashlyn

This was how Ryleigh played mini golf. She would pick up the ball, Dad would tell her to put it in the hole, she would run and drop it right in the hole.

One of the days we headed over to our favorite, Daytona Beach. We didn't end up staying as long as we would have liked though. An airshow was going on and the two girls did NOT like the loud fighter jets. Even after those ones were gone, Ryleigh would not calm down. She kept pointing to the direction of the car and waving so that we would take her bye bye. It was cool though to see all of the planes doing there tricks.

One night Nicole watched Ryleigh while Devin and I went to a Pirate's Dinner and Show. It was really neat.

Alphabet Soup Anyone?
