Fun in October

Emmy hosted her first sleep over party. We had way to much fun watching The Bernstein Bears halloween and rolling up Em and Liv's hair in sponge curlers. We blew up the air mattress for Liv and Gav. Emmy came in at least every 3 hours that night. She would wake us up with her one-of-a-kind LOUD whisper, " Mom! Liv and Gav are still in my room,...sleeping! They're right next to my bed. Isn't that fun?!" Then we woke up and went to Lucy's princess party. Is was a huge hit. Make-up, color your own puzzles, cupcakes...Kaylene throws a wicked party!!!!

 Bennett boy
I love AUTUMN!!! Actually, I get really excited  whenever there is a change of season! Ask Riley. He'll tell you a about it:) We grew pumpkins at the Waites again and Riley had his first pumpkin carve EVER!!! He carved a great Frankenstein!

  Last weekend we went to my moms friend, Lori's house. It was beautiful!!! Her 'yard' consists of about 26 acres, 2 lakes, sleighs, carriages, a huge barn and lots of fun animals. We went on carriage rides, led the mini donkeys, Juan and Carlos around and had to chase them back into their pens...literally.  She had two dogs, that were HUGE and slobbery!!! Emmy couldn't get enough of all the fun with her cousins and the animals! Thanks Lori!
 After this encounter, Emmy said she wanted to be a horse for Halloween.
 Mom and Lori leading Juan and Carlos out for us to play with.
 Em and Uncle Jake on the carriage.

Lucy 'aka' The Beast
 It was a super fun day!
 Emmy and Riley went on a Daddy daughter date last week. Emmy was in heaven though she didn't like the movie they went to, Brave. We thought she'd like it because there was a princess in it. She did, however love eating popcorn and drinking orange pop with Dad.

We went to the Boise Temple open house last week. Just before they started the video that played in the church before we go over to the temple, Riley took Em to the  potty. When they walked in Emmy said,  "Wow, Dad! Look how white it is! Look how clean it is! It is so beautiful! I love it! Wow Dad this is so re-dorbulous!" Emmy thought the bathroom was the temple :)

When I was little I remembered my very favorite pj's were my Dad's t-shirts. We were at my parents one night and Emmy ended up coming home in this and hasn't wanted to sleep in anything else. Love.

All of my family, minus Jake and Heidi (at school) came to my ward's Trunk-or-Treat. It was crazy fun!!! Cinderella (em), Scary-Vampire-That-Made-The-Little-Ones-Cry (Liv) Chinese wee one (Jenna), Chinese princess (Lucy), Ducky (Bennett), Ooomper-man ( Gage) Batman(Gavin).
