Halloween was long but fun... Kelty had a little parade at her pre-school friday morning then we had our ward party and trunk-or-treat on friday night then we had a party at our house on saturday. Kelty was insistent on being a blood sucking vampire this year despite my begging for her to be strawberry shortcake or Wednesday from adam's family. She did play the part very well and in her mind she was scary enough to frighten everyone at the ward Halloween party... She would walk up to strangers and scream BOO! everyone would give a courtesy jump and then she would laugh with pure satisfaction as the person was looking for the owner of the overly confident little vampire (lucky me). As for walker, he was spiderman so naturally fights would break out throughout the night and walker was found trying his superhero kung fu on the other kids in the ward (i'm half joking)....my kids are too cute and i love'em!

I threw a baby shower for my little cuz Brookie! I wanted to do the monster theme cause the graphics i found online were so cute (and it is almost halloween). ANd BTW the little marshmallow monsters are actually really tasty, i will be making a scarier version of them for our halloween party (in case you want to try them:)!

We picked our pumpkins at the Big Red Barn in Santaquin this year again...it is well worth the drive. The farm reminds me of my favorite farm in philly and the barn is full of fresh fruit, veggies, home made doughnuts, ice cream, apple cider, and did i mention the yummiest apples ever!

Matt and i rarely take pictures of just us, and i rarely post them on my blog...matt always gets upset that i never take pics of myself or us together so here we are...thanks to the amazing camera on my iphone, we can take pics on the fly. So, we took a little date on the alpine loop and the scenery was amazing (plus matt looked kinda smoldering in leather and his handlebar mustache).

We had kelty's 4year birthday last weekend. She asked me about her birthday every day for the past month..."Is my birthday going to be after my nap?" because of so much waiting and anticipation she did not believe me when i told her it was actually her birthday...."is it really my birthday mom, are you just kidding?...i'm not really 4, your just joking," she said this all morning until it was her birthday party.
Kelty loves lots of attention and is such the social butterfly, so i couldn't help but throw her a party with all her friends. She would list all the people that she wanted to invite (it included all of her 2nd cousins, Ellie's grandma, and kids she barely knew) it was hard to condense her list of people she wanted to come but honestly she has too many friends for a 4 yr old!... it's because anyone she meets she becomes best buddies with (especially people who look like a grandma). Kelty had the time of her life at the party and is now asking frequently about when her next birthday party will be (hopefully this will die out quickly). Oh, how I love that yummy little strawberry!

Went scrapbooking over conference weekend and although I am a bit rusty I got a lot done! Some of them are kinda repetitive (one for kelty's book and one for walk's book) but i need a digital copy posted of my favorites. (not digital scrapbooking BTW, i just take pics of the pages)

Matt wants to turn our kids into extreme hikers so we decided to hike to timp cave last week. Kelty did the whole thing by herself (she actually has pretty good endurance) but walker only made it 1/4 of the way up and then had to be carried (it's a little harder for a boy that thick:). I have never hiked to timp and was pretty suprised at how the whole trail is on a cliff!!! Other than high risk for fatalities the hike was really pretty and the weather was perfect, and the cave looked like the inside of a persons ear full of earwax. If you haven't been on this hike i would highly recommend it but its like a refrigerator in the cave, so remember to bring a sweatshirt or you might have to buy a pretty sweet timpanogos cave hoodie from the gift shop.
