Halloween Night

We hosted Halloween evening here at our house with the Suman parents, Meredith, Eisenbises, Gerdts, and Kevin. We had soup and chili. It was nice having everyone to our house.  Bummer that I forgot to take pics during dinner of our guests. 

Then it was trick or treating time!  I was laughing at our 10 adults walking around with only these three little girls to follow around (Jeremy went out with friends).  

The haunted house!  Leah almost went in but I am glad she didn't!  It would be really freaky for her.  They do a really good job.  It was fun to go through and always a hit!

 The girls got a good amount of candy and had a really fun time.  They were tired and ready to head home after a couple of blocks.  It was fun to see friends and neighbors out and about!

Happy Halloween!

Earlier in the day I got to go to Ava's classroom to take pictures and help out.  They had big buddies come at the end of the day and watch a movie and have cupcakes.  Ava's buddy is one of our Activity Day girls, Dani Hrabik!

Leah: Preschool Halloween

Leah loves her preschool class! There is a great group of kids with her and their teachers are so sweet! She was thrilled to bring her goody bags and go trick or treating in the classroom and play carnival type games.

Playing games!

I love being able to help out at these events with other moms.  Even better to be there with friends, Mindy, little Ava, and Grace got to help out with Gavin.

Circle time and storytime.

Trick or treating around the classroom.

Ava got to stop by too!  I love that their classrooms are so close to each other.

Fun party!

Pumpkin Carving

 Sunday night after dinner we carved pumpkins with the Eisenbises and Meredith.

Eric carved a persimmon. It was so small and cute.

Ava wanted a bunny, Eric's little guy in the middle, and Leah wanted shapes and letters.

Gram also made sugar cookies for the kids to decorate.  They loved doing this and then we delivered some to a family in their ward and to Rich and Karen next door complete with a little Halloween carol.

Thanks for a fun night Gram and Grandpa!

This week...

My girls love coming to Activity Days! They are getting to do some fun activities before they turn 8, which will be here before we know it! We were decorating sugar cookies and Leah got a little carried away.  Her teeth says it all though. 

Saturdays are still soccer days.  Both girls have games and we even squeezed in one of Jeremy's games this week.  Leah has been doing great considering this is her first year!  She scored another goal today!  We are making good use out of our back pack chairs and Ava even has made friends with Grace, one of the older siblings of Ava on Leah's team.


Cute little picture of Leah while going on a little hike with Eric and Ava.

The weather has been all over the place like it usually is during fall. One morning I drove into so much fog! I went into the canyon and tried to get a picture of the fog hanging over Foothill Ranch.

While Eric was painting his hammer gold for his Felix Halloween costume and his thumb ended up gold.  Ava and Leah wanted gold thumbs too.

Trunk or Treat

Leah was dressed as Rapunzel! She had quite the little personality and was so proud of her long hair wig.


Ava as Queen Amidala from Star Wars. 
Her make up was intense and she took herself very seriously all 

Trunk or Treat with the Live Oak Canyon Ward.  I loved seeing all of our cute friends dressed up.  Camille joined us with Anna and Mandi.  Eric dressed up again like Fix-It Felix.

Anna won the Most Sparkly costume prize and Ava won for Most Beautiful.  The girls got a lot of good candy and fun light up foam sticks.  We have a great ward!
