The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!

Anyone who knows me, is aware of the fact that I LOVE fall. I'm not sure what exactly it is that makes me love it so much. It could be that my first baby was born in the fall, maybe because the weather is cooler (and everyone knows I hate the heat!), or possibly it's because the holidays are just around the corner and I absolutely love Thanksgiving and Christmas! I cannot wait! My kids think I'm ridiculous because I have already informed them that I will start listening to Christmas music and watching Christmas movies on Saturday!! I just love the feelings associated with these holidays and the fact that we always get together with family. I LOVE IT!!

Anyway, Halloween week has been a blast! My kids have absolutely loved it. On Tuesday, we carved pumpkins. It was really fun but Kaylen wasn't sure what to think. She was pretty scared of the jack-o-lanterns at first but after a while, she was giving them all kisses. We also had our ward trunk-or-treat party. It was really fun. The Young Men had a hot dog eating contest but Jayden didn't know about it and filled up on chili before the contest so he couldn't participate. He watched though and told me afterward that he is "totally gonna do that next year!!" I was an idiot (again) and left my camera home. But the kids looked great and I will for sure get pics on Friday.

Braedy and Masen get to dress up for school on Friday. My kids have never been able to do that! Every school they have gone to just has just had "fall" parties, so they are pretty stoked about that! Poor Jay has to miss out! He never got the chance to wear a costume to school and now he's in middle school and they just don't do it! Oh well, I guess he'll survive.

I hope you all are enjoying the fall as much as I am! Take care!!

I agree. I too love this time of year! It's still like 76 degrees, but that's ok because it will be great for Halloween. Hope you are all doing well!
