Happy Halloween!

"Wingardium Leviosa!" said our little Harry Potter this year! Spencer was so cute and everyone knew who he was supposed to be.

Spencer's favorite part of Halloween was "going trick or treating and getting the Sweetart skeleton bones & pumpkin suckers."

Logan was a mad scientist this year for Halloween. He had a hard time deciding, but finally came up with something on Monday. He was excited because a few people didn't even recognize him. He said a bunch of kids kept stealing his wig and scientific potion.

Logan said his favorite part of Halloween was "eating the candy!" Logan was also able to go to the USU basketball season opener with Jay though, so that may have been a close second to his candy!

Katelyn dressed up as a Renaissance Princess. She loved her costume especially the sparkly gold shoes that she found in her Grandma Patsy's dress ups. She was a busy girl on Halloween going straight from school, to ballet, to the trunk or treat, out trick or treating, and then passed out candy at home.

When asked what her favorite part of Halloween was, she responded, "Carving pumpkins, seeing all the kids in their costumes who came trick or treating to our house, and eating candy."

So, obviously, our kids are candy addicts. We are hoping that once the candy is all gone their sugar levels will go back to normal and that our next visit to the dentist isn't a disaster. All in all though, it was a great day and everyone enjoyed themselves --even Jay who generally isn't a big fan of Halloween.

UEA Fun @ Zollinger Park

We recently had a week off school for Parent Teacher Conferences and UEA. We spent one afternoon at a local park where we ate lunch, played on the playground, tennis, and baseball. It was so much fun! We are trying to soak up as much sunshine as we can before the long winter sets in.
