I admit that Halloween is a fun time had by all. But I will also admit that I think Halloween is so stupid. No offense. I do love to watch how excited the kids get and love to get dressed up and they do look pretty darn cute. I'm not into the scary things, that's all. :) That the part I don't get, why do people like to be scared? We watched that Ellen show video where she sent a couple people through a haunted house. It was so funny and I cried laughing so hard. But I am with the guy going through it, "why do people pay money for this?" Enjoy that little video. :)
Milas took the kids trick-or-treating and I stayed home with Shepherd and handed out candy.

At the end of October we took a family outing to the local Fire station here in Kaysville. Track is really into Firetrucks so it was a night of awe for him. Little boys are so much fun.

The week before school started the girls were busy playing and informed me that they were planning a party and were making invitation and were wondering how many people they could invite. "10?, or maybe 12?, What do you think Mom?" My first thought was I do not want to have a party, but because I had just recently read a quote that said something about letting your kids be kids and whenever possible to say yes, I went with it, but only if they stayed outside. So they invited about 10 kids with their own hand-made cards. And they were off to deliver the cards.
They had thought up a "show" that they did for the kids and the played in the water and rode scooters and bikes around. They made a sign so that everyone knew where to park their vehicle of choice. See, very organized. It was cute, and I am glad I let them do it.

Monday was the first day of school for Lydia and Liza. The excitement of the first day of school is always a fun time. The night before Liza was not only excited about school, but was mostly excited to wear her new shoes. I love watching all the little Kindergartners line up on the first day. They all look excited and nervous. Liza was ready to go, she doesn't seem to need Mom much. I love independent kids.
One of my favorite things about school starting is doing the Fathers blessings the night before. I love watching Milas place his hands on those little heads and talk to them as there father and give them a blessing with the priesthood from their Heavenly Father. It gives me that small glimpse of love that our Heavenly Father has for his children. It's going to be a good year.
