Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween everyone. I love this time of year and I always feel like Halloween kicks off the holiday season. I actually even justify listening to Christmas music after Halloween. A little early, I know, but this time of year is my favorite!!

Monday we invited the Simmons over to carve some pumpkins and have some dinner. We had such a great time like always. Addy and Coop loved the pumpkin "guts" and had a blast throwing it all over. It was so funny to watch them play together. The finished product turned out pretty good!

The finished product!!

Rich Halloween Party

Last Saturday Carol had such a great party for all the grandkids. There was plenty of good food, friends and games to go around. We all had such a great time. Coop even left his Halloween costume on all night!!

Family Pictures

Blake & Kelly's little girl Ella was not happy with her costume...but she looked so cute!!

Costume parade around the pool table

Lori Side & Back View..haha

Go Fish!

The games Carol had ready were so creative. In this first pic, the boys had to taste the different kinds of "blood" and guess what each was. They also had to do it while they had nylons over their heads...hilarious!! They didn't really appreciate the being pudding mixed with salsa!!

Worms and Eyeballs...(Spaghetti and Grapes). She told the neices to dig into the worms and eyeballs for some cash...they were blindfolded. The funny thing is that she had actually dumped a few real earthworms on top. There were a few screams and almost a few tears shed..but everyone thought it was hilarious! Coop was fascinated by the worms. He didn't really want to touch them.

Ghost hunt!! I thought this was such a cute game. There were a bunch of white helium filled balloons hidden outside. They gave each grandchild a flashlight and they went on a ghost hunt outside in the dark. Everyone loved it. When they found all their ghosts they brought them in for a prize!

Bob for apples! All the grandkids loved this one, especially watching their dads trying to get an apple. Grandpa even joined in on the fun. He wasn't shy...his whole head went in under water and he was as fast as any of them! Coop was just loving eating an apple grandpa gave him. He ate it all the way down to the core. I took it from him and noticed the whole inside was moldy! Yum!!

Is he alive???

And to top the night off, there had to be a hot tub dip. Brad can't go to his parents house without getting in the hot tob and he had plenty of company!

Thanks so much for the Halloween party Carol!! Everyone had such a great time!

Pumpkin Walk 2008

I was so excited to take Coop to the Pumpkin Walk this year in North Logan! I was up in Lewiston all last week and this was one of the reasons why. I loved going with my family growing up and now I can continue on the tradition. The theme this year was "Heroes", and it was awesome! It seems to be getting so busy as the years go by. We were lucky enough to have my parents with us and we all enjoyed it!

Coop actually looking at the camera!! This was in front of the batman exhibit.

My cute parents and Coop.

They had these wooden figures with the faces cut out. At first Coop didn't know what to think, but when he figured them out, we couldn't get him to leave the Yoda. He just sat there looking around at people. Everyone was laughing. He is such a cutie!!

The best family picture we got all night...Coop seriously has a phobia of looking at a camera. I swear! I'm pretty sure I was talking to him through my teeth telling him to look at grandma. Hence the weird look on my face. Oh well!

First bus ride for the family! They were shuttling people in this year. Crazy!!

My favorite exhibit. Some people are so talented!

This was my next favorite exhibit. If you look close, there was actually water pouring out of a pumpkin into a little pond. There was a father and son fishing in the pond. So cute!

Where is Cooper??

Lately Coop has decided that hiding is pretty fun. It will be quiet for a while around the house and I will start to worry. This is the first place I check. He loves hiding in the curtains in our front room. It is so funny because you either see his feet poking out or his little shadow in the curtains. He will stay there for a while waiting for someone to find him. He sure keeps me entertained and busy!!

Park City Getaway

All last week Brad was asking what we should do that weekend. He wanted to do something fun because he'd been working really hard and was ready to get away. I suggested getting a hotel room up in Park City. He agreed!! We decided to invite our friends the Simmons and we had a great time! The leaves were still really pretty up there. I hadn't really even seen them yet this year. Even though we only stayed one night it was a much needed getaway and we had a great time!!

Swimming in the hotel pool

We decided to head up to Olympic Park. Right when we pulled up we saw the U of U Med helicopeter land in the parking lot. Turns out they must have been doing drills or something because they were taking off and landing the whole time we were there. Coop was in HEAVEN. He loves helicopters.

Two Random Pics

I haven't posted in a bit, but I really don't have a lot going on right now. Here are some funny pics we took this past week.

We pulled out all the Halloween/Fall decorations and found Coop's Halloween costume from last year. It still fit him and he liked having it on for a little while...he decided to watch some Sesame Street in it. I haven't found him a cute costume yet for this year so he might end up wearing this again....any suggestions on where to find a cute costume??

This next picture is outside in our yard. He loves picking flowers and smelling them. The cutest thing is that after he smells them he finds me so that he can give them to me. I love my little boy!!
