Porter and Halle aka..Cinderella and Cowboy... aren't they darling??
The cousins had a great time and trick or treated together. Porter, Kate, Maryn, Chole, Sophie and Halle

Me and the Kids...

Porter and Halle's pumpkins...They drew the faces and then a grown-up carved them for them. Halle made her's a little difficult with eyelashes and all but Daniel did a great job. They turned out so cute!!

We had a great Halloween....We went to Salt Lake to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa Stephens and our cousins. We started the day at Gardner Village to see all the cute Witches, then off to the pumpkin patch for picking the best pumpkins for carving. We had some lunch then back to Grandpa's house to carve.
The kids loved getting there hands messy in the pumpkin guts, all but Halle she ran away and said she was not touching the guts!! So mom and Daniel did her dirty work.
The kids got dressed up and off we went Trick or Treating. My parents live in a great neighborhood and we were only gone for 1 hour and the buckets were full. Halle was true to charater the whole time with her wand and purse. She delicately walked from house to house, the she found out uncle Spencer would carry her so she would get her candy at the door, the yell "Spencer!" and he would pick her up and away they would go to the next house.
Porter ran from house to house, no stopping him. What a good trooper.
We had a great weekend and look forward to another great Halloween next year!!!

We had a free day and took the kids to the Living Planet Aquarium in Salt Lake. Boy did they have fun..

This was story time with Mrs. Starfish

Josh and Porter, Porter is trying to get brave and touch a sting ray... eventually he did it. They were really friendly and showing off the day we went. They were coming out of the water and up on the walls. They really seemed to like us touching them.

We spent the rest of the day shopping, and going to two movies. That is Josh's dream day is movies all day.. he got porter to go to the second one with him. Me and Halle just kept shopping and picked them up later. What a great day!!
