Fall Fun

I would love fall so much more if it just wasn't so cold! It seems that there's lots of fun things to do this time of year. We took Kaitlynn, Carter and Isaac to see the Ringling Bros Circus. We haven't been since Kait was a baby. Marissa and Levi were home one weekend in October and we wanted to go to the Corn Maze but the weather was awful. Later in the month it was warmer and Ann took Carter, Brooklynn and Isaac. It was Ann's first time (she usually works on Saturdays). The corn was really tall this year and as always the courtyard is a lot of fun too.

Once again Carter and Jared played together at the Federation Duet Festival. And... once again they received a superior rating. This was Carter's 5th year. One of the duets was "Tell Me the Stories of Jesus", and they played it as part of the Children's Sacrament Meeting Presentation as well.

 The kids all had fun decorating honey cookies. My children remember us doing that most years when they were small and it's a tradition they want to continue.

We had a party at home on Halloween. Carter and I made carmel apples and we all tried to watch a movie (something Halloween-like, but not really scary). The movie we rented was scratched and iTunes froze up on the computer, but we had fun anyway. Cameron and Heidi stopped by with their girls. Cameron took 2nd place with the costume he wore to work (he should have won first). Not only was his costume great, but I think he stayed in character most of the day. Some of the people at the hospital where he works didn't even know it was him!

I love Bones. Can't wait for the season premier tonight. Love this video. Anyone else a fan?
