Witchy Witch

Every year my mom, sister, her girls, and I go see the witches at Gardner Village. We have made it a tradition and love going. This year we decided to let our girls wear their Halloween costumes. Griff and I hadn't told anyone what Blake was going to be for Halloween this year so my mom was super excited to see her costume. She was an Owl!! It wasn't as cold as we thought it was going to be. We layered up our girls thinking it was going to be a cold fall day, we went October 18th. We ended up unlayering our girls as the day went on.
Once we got their we just walked around and showed our girls all the fun witches and saw all the fun booths with the witch hats and toys. The girls loved all the fun toys and wanted one of everything. My mom then got a few pieces of fudge and shared them with all of us. Blakelee could not get enough of it and was so mad when we wouldn't give her any more.  
After a few hours of walking around my mom bought all the girls a cute stuffed animal. Blake got a monkey, Jae got an octopus, and Laryssa got a wand instead!! We then loaded up into the car and hit Kneaders for some lunch and called it a day.
Haha some of these faces just kill me!
They are the cutest and the silliest girls ever!!! 
LOVE them with all of my heart.
...My Precious Owl...
Until next year...

Little Pumpkin Patch

October 11th we went to the Pumpkin Patch with a few of our friends. We met Steve and Lara there and our other friends met us a little later Stefan and Becca.
We went to the Petersen Family Farm's Pumpkin Patch which is right off of Bangater by the District. Griff and I haven't been to a patch since we have been married so I really wanted to go and have Blake's pick out her pumpkin this year. By the time we could all met up it was getting dark and was a little later then we would've wanted.. but it was still a blast in the dark. Other then it was hard to pick the perfect pumpkin without the light. So we did our best and used our phones haha!!
I love my little family!!
Helping Blakelee pick her Pumpkin. 
She was so cute walking around and finding the one she wanted.
She found the Most Perfect one!!
Then she wanted a white one too and picked this one out for us.
Griffin found his perfect pumpkin!!
Huge right!??
He did so good.
Boys will be boys... 
Hahah Stephen placed his pumpkin perfectly in front of Griff right as I snapped the picture!!!
Stefan, Griff, and Stephan!
Aww I LOVE everything about all these pictures. It was a perfect night with some of our most amazing friends!!! We went to Longhorn afterwards for some delicious dinner then back to our house for a movie. It was one of the funnest nights!

Fall Leaves

The first week of October we headed up Orem Canyon, it was a beautiful day!! 
The leaves were barely starting to change... we might have made it up a week to early but at least we saw some pretty colors. We stopped to get some lunch before heading up and ate as we drove.
Isn't it such a pretty view!?
It was snowing at the top and I was thrilled.
This little munchkin was loving this day!! She loves the outdoors. She kept pointing at everything and would say OH!!
Oh how we love the change of seasons!!!
Now we are in the beginning of winter. Sad to see fall leave us but we are beyond excited for the holidays and I am so excited for a little snow... only in December :)... This is my favorite time of the year. I can not wait to set up our Christmas decorations but we usually wait until after Thanksgiving. I am trying my hardest to wait!! But as of now we have no choice since our house is a crazy mess from the flood we had a month ago. Our kitchen is ripped out so as of now we can not set up any Holiday fun!! We did adopt a Sweet little Elf and still need to name her. We are thrilled to start the Elf on the Shelf tradition in our family. 
Thanksgiving will be here before we know it!
