Happy Halloween & Birthday!!

it's my last year in my thirties!! yikes!!  
I absolutley LOVE having my birthday on Halloween!  It is so fun for my kids too.  
It is definitely the busiest day EVER, but so much fun.  

we started off the morning getting kids off to school in costumes, I went to Crossfit
 dressed up in my first costume for the day, a Red Sox fan!  Then ate lunch 
at Cafe Rio with my sisters! My sister Rachel came down from Idaho for the weekend
and I LOVED having her here.  After birthday lunch they met me at the kids
School for the Parade and then Class Party.

I make the Witches Brew every year in their class and they LOVE it! It's my favorite
thing to do,  Ivy was my cute little witchy helper. ha!
the kids LOVE it!

After school we had my sisters and their kids and my nephew and niece who 
are here at BYU come and eat some Soup in bread bowls and cupcakes
 before we sent the kids out to trick or treat! 

It was a perfect night for trick or treating... always fun to see all the kids dressed up 
in costumes.  

the night ended with an extra scare to the Haunted Forest with the older cousins... ugh!

Rex Kwon Doe!
olivia and her bff Tessa match eachother every year.  It's so cute!!

**** Class Party****

Witches Brew with the twins class, they LOVE this...

*** Ivy's pre school party the day before***
we played a fun game called "don't eat the Monster" and decorated cookies!
pictures before they head out for Trick or Treating!!

 Brody and Hayes were so cute this year... Loved how they matched for Mario & Luigi!

ha!  My nephew Garrett loves mario brothers! 

Mindy made a yummy Clam Chowder that we ate before heading out... along with the Sweet 
Tooth fairy cupcakes! yummy!!

The cousins!

Wolf Badge

my little hayesie bugs is moving right along in scouts. He was so excited to pass off his 
Wolf Badge, and get TONS of belt loops and pins.  Soon he turns 9 and moves onto 
bears.  He was more than excited to be getting all these awards.  
love you bugsy! 

Wolf teeth!

pumpkin carving.

keeping Halloween extra spooktacular, this year we made spaghettin in bell peppers, the kids thought that was so fun.  along with our traditional 'Dinner in Pumpkin' we added some 
"after Ghoul snacks" ha!!  i love this time of year!!

We carved pumpkins for family night and it is always a mess, but so fun to see the 
end result, right?! 

Halloween Party!

Our good friends always host the best halloween party every year!  This years theme was 
"TV Land" blast from the past TV shows.  I couldn't help but get the 
Spartan cheerleader costumes.  
Cory is such a good sport.  Always willing to dress however i want!  love that boy!

We ate TV dinners and played family feud!  I won for "Most Realistic!" ha!  
my favorite cheer from SNL Spartan cheerleaders is the chess tournament one.
Always hilarious!!

here are just a few good ones..
  Lavern and Shirley were the ultimate hostesses! 

birthday lunch!

lately we like to do birthday hikes instead of birthday lunches! Ha! 
Jenn was here from Hawaii and we were planning to go to the P!NK concert for my bday and 
then Pink cancelled her concert! ugh!  instead we had a fun time at "Thriller." 

The weather was beautiful and Jenn was dying to see the fall leaves and color in the mountains
so we went on a fun hike up south fork then met the girls at "tortilla bar" for lunch.  
It was delicious! 

love these girls and so grateful to have such good friends! 
and of course we had to bring our dogs... ha!

Elk Hunting...

Boston drew out for the first time this year, he got his Hunter Safety and couldn't wait
to go hunting with his Dad & Cousins.  They got to Hunt on Private Property this year with 
family in Idaho.  The very first day there, he SHOT a 5 point Elk!  he was so Pumped!!
