Pumkin Patch!

I am in charge of the scouts in primary, and we had our pack meeting at the Pumpkin Patch Maze last night. The kids had a blast! It's fun for them to get to hang out with the older boys! I think Katlyn likes it too!!!! The weather has become a tad bit colder and so we froze our tooshies off, but it was a lot of fun. I highly recommend it to everyone.
This picture was when we got done with the maze. Right after this the boys got into a fight with their glow sticks and that was my clue that it was time to head home. At least we had one hour of brotherly love right? It was a lot of fun. The Willis' do a great job making it all so much fun for everyone.
I love the fall season, minus the wind in Snowflake. I love the leaves changing color, and the first time we start a fire. Wrapping up in blankets with hot chocolate and cinnamon rolls and watching a movie together. Trick or Treating! I can't wait for Thanksgiving and time with family! Then, the day after Thanksgiving the Christmas tree goes up, and I don't take it down until after New Years. I love the spirit of Christmas. Not the presents and shopping and all that, but just the feel of it, and the snow! I love this time of year!

Conversations before bed....

Last night while Mike was getting the boys ready for bed Carter and Gage had a funny little conversation that I had to write down. It went something like this.....
Carter: "Gage you have a big head, and I have a small head."
Gage: "I don't have a big head. I have a small head too."
Carter: "No you don't. Come in the bathroom and I will show you in the mirror."

They then headed to the bathroom to take a good look at their heads in the mirror...

Carter: "See Gage you do have a big head."
Gage: "Ya, I do have a big head and you have a small head."
Carter: "Ya, my head is small."
Gage: "Ya."

Book, Games, Snakes, and Birthdays....!!! What more could I want?

These pictures were just too good for me to pass up blogging and so I just compiled the last few days into one post. Katlyn and I read to the boys every night before they go to bed. On Sunday night she was reading a Scooby Doo book to Gage and Carter just couldn't resist joining in. I caught this just before she got done. There are moments when it's absolutely amazing to be a mom, wouldn't you agree?
I caught these two hiding from me behind the trash can when it was time for baths. They thought they were so funny!
Last night Katlyn ran into the house and informed me that Mike had found a snake in the garage that was so BIG! Looks pretty ferocious to me! Now the boys open the door every time they come down the stairs to search for the other family members of the snake.
Carter has a new hobby of making birthday cakes out of bread, marshmallows, sprinkles, bananas and whatever else he can scrounge up in the kitchen. Today he and Gage made this one for me. Nothing like having a birthday once a week right? The video is of them singing to me. (We always have to sing when Carter makes a cake!)
