October was filled with the usual Halloween activities, carving pumpkins, Heber Creeper, Cornbellies, parties etc...
Anna was a beautiful blue butterfly this year
Shaun and I were paper dolls
For the last few years we have had soup at our house before trick-or-treating. Everyone is encouraged to dress up, but there are those party poopers that just refuse. (we have the Tanners, Cooks, Browns, Crocketts, Nielsen's, Turley kiddos', Christiansens, Amber and the Cassells.) Not everyone had their picture taken.
After our party and trick-or-treating around the neighborhood, which I believe Anna and Leila were out the longest and got the most candy. Shaun couldn't get them to quit. We headed up to say hello to the grandparents. They were having their own party at the Whips. ( We have us, Grandma and Grandpa, Kip and Emily, Scott and Toni, Loni and Ian and Whit and Kyle.)
Anna had a school program, which I don't have pictures of because I was on the stage with her. All the kids and me. She has become super shy and nervous and wouldn't go up if I wasn't up there.
These are 2 of her fun teachers, Ms. Valerie and Ms. Carolyn.
