Halloween town at the Keele's

With Halloween being on a Monday this year, it actually tuned into a whole weekend event. On Saturday we stared the day by meeting the Titas at Jaker's Pumpkin patch. It was just a freaking blast!
That evening we went to the ward "Fall Activity" (they don't call it the Halloween activity as to not offend anyone, even though it 100% is)... Oh yeah, we were the Ninja Turtles this year! It worked out that were able to get all the costumes together with not a lot of difficulty and by some miracle we were all able to be the four different turtles!
 The Little Guy loved his costume, it's hard to tell from his super grumpy face, but trust me, he LOVED IT!
 They had set up all sorts of games for the kids including donuts on a string. The Little Guy came come with so much candy we were able to maintain a steady sugar high all throughout the weekend
After church (and naps) on Sunday, we carved the pumpkin we got at Jaker's (Thanks Abuelo and Abuela!). The Little Guy was super specific that he wanted the pumpkin to have two teeth at the top and two at the bottom and he made sure his instructions were respected and carried out. Daddy let the kids borrow a couple of shirts to use as smocks.
Katelyn loved scooping out the guts so much. It was by far her favorite part for the whole experience
I didn't get as many pictures as I should have on the actual day but we were so busy. Daddy had to work but we stopped by to see him and get some candy on the way to Abuelo and Abuela's
Um... can  I just take a second to gush about Addie dressed as Princess Lea?!
We trick-or-treated around Abuelo and Abuela's for a while and then met up with Daddy and the rest of the Keeles at the McEntire's for the annual scones and chili. So delicious.
Then it was trick-or-treating until we (and by "We" I mean Spencer and I) were just exhausted. We really got SO MUCH CANDY this year! Yeah, I ate most of it... I have no remorse, I birthed them after all.

Month update: September

Between our Lagoon weekend and the reunion, September is always a really busy month for us. Add to that, Daddy switching jobs and it was just insane. So here is the usual craziness in random order

The kids and I were able to make it out to both Maple Mountain and Spanish Fork's homecoming games.
 Katelyn, unfortunately, had her first really sick-sickness. She got an ear infection on both ears which lead to the discovery that she is actually allergic to penicillin when Dr. McBride prescribed her some and she broke out in a rash. Yeah... not a good time.
 At the begging of the month (right before we left for Lagoon) we had the annual 7th Ward pool party; and get this, this year we were actually part of the ward and not just crashing like always
 The kids taking pictures of me, as I take a picture of them.... and yes, Katelyn thinks she needs to raise the camera as if she were taking a selfie
 Tita Nana went to Homecoming... what?!
and that was September.... super busy... super stressful but super fun.
