Pumpkins Carved

We finally had time to carve our pumpkins we got from the pumpkin patch a few weeks ago.  Ryleigh helped me find a pattern online and of course, it was Dora.  She was asking Devin what he wanted to carve out of his.  He told her to pick.  She picked Swiper the Fox since she had just seen it where I found the Dora one.     

She opted to paint hers again this year but sat with us the whole time we carved ours.

She even helped gut mine. Maybe next year she will want to carve hers.


Bailey was pretty excited to see the Dora pumpkin when she woke up.

Trunk or Treat

Little peacock
 
 

Angelina Ballerina 



We had our ward trunk or treat last night.  I finished the last part of Ryleigh's costume Thursday evening so I had her try it all on.  She was so excited, dancing around the house saying, "Look Mom, my tail is moving with me!" "Mom, Angelina does this," as she is doing some dance move.  She wouldn't take it off until bedtime.

Bailey wasn't really into hers the time I tried it on her.  When she saw Ryleigh dancing around in hers, she wanted hers on.  She was a lot more excited about it and was dancing right along with Ryleigh.

All day Friday, they were playing trick or treat with their buckets gearing up for last night.  Bailey knew exactly what to do and was not patient waiting in line.  She pushed her way up to each trunk and held her bucket right up there until they put candy in it.  Occasionally, she would even say trick or treat.  Towards the end, she was dragging her bucket but still had enough energy to lift it up upon arrival of a trunk.

Boise Temple Open House

Last weekend my sister and her kids came to visit and we all headed to the temple open house.  It is so beautiful!  It was neat to see the kids' reaction as we were walking through.



 
The kids enjoyed the bus ride to and from the temple.  They were so excited to sit all the way in the back.



Touchdown!

Last Thursday we were watching the Ducks and I was telling Ryleigh to say touchdown.  Bailey followed right along.  She kept saying it over and over all night long.

Spider Pumpkins

Last week Grandma and Grandpa Larsen came to visit.  The girls had so much fun with them and were totally spoiled.  Grandma brought a craft along to do with the girls.


 
I lost count as to how many times Ryleigh went out the front door to look at their spiders that night and the next day. 
 
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for a fun visit.

Pumpkin Patch

Today we went to the pumpkin patch to look for the perfect pumpkins.
 
 
We started off with a hayride.
 

 
Then we were off on the pumpkin hunt.  Ryleigh thought she wanted this one until she couldn't pick it up. 
 
Bailey thought she wanted this one and then got upset because she couldn't pick it up. 
 
So we showed her a smaller one.  Still no luck. 
 
In the mean time, Ryleigh ran to a pile of little ones to find one that she could pick up and carry.  She also picked one for Bailey.
 
 
 
They are so excited to paint their little pumpkins.

 
When we got back in the truck, Ryleigh insisted that she hold her pumpkin and Bailey hers.  She was afraid that they would fall out of the back.  On the way home, Ryleigh asked numerous times if the other pumpkins fell out.  I am no sure why she thought they were going to fall out.  She was glad to see that the pumpkins were still in the back when we got home.

Aunt Nicole's House

I had a four day weekend last week we headed to my sister's house in Walla Walla, WA.  Ryleigh was super excited to go.  Aunt Nicole told her she could bring her bike and ride with Ashlyn.



 
We went to a park to try and get some cute pictures of the girls.  We didn't have much luck.  Neither of them wanted to cooperate very well.



 
They had a lot of fun jumping on the trampoline.  Ryleigh told her dad that she wants one.

 
Before we left on Sunday, the kids got to decorate Halloween cookies.

 
Thanks for letting us come visit.  It is so nice to be so close!
