Happy Halloween Part II

We spent Halloween night with Russ' family in Provo, at his aunt & uncle's house. We enjoyed hot soup, rolls, doughnuts, etc. I know Elliot is only 8 months old, but we took him trick-or-treating anyway. He went with his older cousins. Russ only lasted a few houses, but the rest of us continued on for a while. It was such a beautiful night to be outside!

Happy Halloween Part I

We had a great Halloween this year. We spent the weekend before with my family in Logan. We had our annual Halloween party-hosted this year by the Ozmuns.

Our little stinker!

I found Elliot's costume at D.I. for $2.00 and we fell in love with it! It was then Russ' idea to go as a skunk family. We found some sweatshirts and Russ' pants at Savers, and with Russ' help I constructed our skunk costumes (using Elliot's costume as the pattern).

Hillary (Black Swan) & Adam (Owl)-hilarious!

On Sunday we carved pumpkins at my mom's.
Russ did "The Nightmare before Christmas" and I did Frankie.

So Big!

Our little guy turned 8 months old on the 26th! He is doing new things all the time. He climbs over everything, pulls himself up to his feet, says, "Da da", "Ma ma", "Ba ba", "Na na", & blows tons of spit bubbles. We love his big cheese smile & when he scrunches his nose and breathes heavy-kind of snorting.

Fall Fun!

We had a "Fall Fun" weekend with some of my family the weekend before Halloween. My sister, her girls, and brother came down from Logan and my dad came over as well. Friday night we made delicious caramel apples and Saturday morning we went to Petersen Family Farm in Riverton. It was awesome! Admission was free, which included a small cornmaze for children, hayride, a walk through the pumpkin patch, and a free cup of apple cider. We only had to pay for the pumpkins we picked out and other food items.
