Halloween Night!

Here are the Halloween night Pictures.  Gracelyn had fun going around to get candy.  She had the "trick or treat" down pretty well.  Abbe didn't last to long because she wanted to stop and eat every piece of candy that she got.  Grace got kind of scared at the houses that had the dark bloody decorations she seems to think everything is pink and nice.  She was very unsure of any "scary" costumes. One house there was a man in a gorilla costume sitting on his porch and when she walked up he moved and she bolted so fast!  It was funny! We showed her that it was a costume and she asked "Why is he dressed like that."  The man just stated that it was his costume just like she had one.

Here is the loot to prove the trick or treat night! She got a lot for such a little age!

Halloween Day!

Halloween was fun this year because it was on a Saturday.  So we had the opportunity to get dressed up early and go see all the Grandma's and Grandpa's before going out trick or treating that night.  We went up to Perry first and saw the Martinez's.  Mema surprised and scared Gracelyn with a funny witch mask and hat.  After that we went over to the Motts and had pictures done by Grandpa Mott ( I don't have the copy of those pictures yet.... I am sure they are better than mine!)  After visiting a little while then we went home to start the candy hunt! The Picture of me was taken because Bill was teasing Gracelyn and would not give her her Thumbelina fairy wings.  He was showing her that they looked better on Mom! I don't think they look to bad on me!

Trunk or Treat!

This year we went to our wards "trunk or treat".  It was held the Wednesday before Halloween.  So the girls got to dress up 2 times.  Gracelyn was Thumbelina ( because the costume was "pink and sparkly". )  Abbe was a bee ( Her favorite movie is the "Bee Movie".) Gracelyn had a blast because she was able to spend the evening with her best friend and neighbor Brynlee. They had a bunch activities for the kids and they also had a chili dinner.  After the dinner and the games the kids go around to the trunks of the cars to get candy.  However, it was so cold that they held the candy exchange in the gym of the church. Kids love it and get a ton of candy in a matter of minutes.

Our outdoor visitor!

For the last few years we have tried to decorate our front porch for the fall.  This year we went all out and got a ton of pumpkins and decorated the straw bales with indian corn, little colorful squashes, and mini pumpkins. After it had been up for a few days I had noticed one of my indian corns was disappearing.  So Bill got out our fighting ammo "d-con" to keep the little critters from coming into our house.
One afternoon my sister Amy had come over to our house.  When I opened the front door to let her in I noticed a little grey fur ball stuck in the middle of the straw bales.  He was still moving and I know he had ingested our "ammo".  A little while later we went out side and he was in a "deep sleep" in between our pumpkins. It was hard to explain to Gracelyn that we don't want little mice hanging around the house when she loves the Disney Movie Ratatouille.  Thank You Disney for making such dirty little rodents so lovable :)

Ogden Train Station

Gracelyn has always been excited to see trains.  We decided to take a day and go up to the Ogden Train Station to see the trains then ride the Front Runner down to Salt Lake to shop at the gateway and have lunch.  Grandma and Grandpa Mott went with us and we had a fun time! Abbe is sure starting to walk well.
