Halloween 2011

My mom and the kids at Gardner village.  They especially love going with Grandma so they get lots of treats:)

Alice and wonderland theme for Halloween.  Clara was the Queen of Hearts and we were all the cards.  I made all the costumes and it was so much fun.  I love making costumes so I can be really creative.  Clara's costume was the best. 

I usually have a hard time getting all of my boys to go along with my theme but this year they all agreed especially since they got to hold a staff/sword.  Alvin was so excited to be a "bad guy"
Dress I made out of scrap fabric and an old t shirt of clara's. 

Pants for dean. 
Dean the cardsman.  So funny.

Oct. and Reid's birthday

Here we are and the Draper Halloween festival.  There were all sorts of carnival games and of course candy. 

Picking out pumpkins. 
This year we had Reid's Birthday party at Cornbelly's at Thanksgiving Point.  The kids just love that place.  And it is only open during Oct. so it is perfect that Reid's birthday is in Oct.  Reid is such a special boy.  He is the best brother and friend.  Whenever I listen to him playing with his friends I never hear him say anything mean or rude.  He is very easy to get along with.  He has so many fun ideas to play with his friends.  He comes up with so many different activities to do.  He creates so many cool things with his toys.  He is also very responsible.  He wants to do what is right.  We love him so much.  He turned 9 this year.  What a big boy!

Here we are at Gardner Village.  I love this place.  It has such a fun feel.  My kids love it too especially because every time we go they think they get to get candy and the candy shop.  No wonder they like it. 
We often go to chick-fil-a on wed. nights when kids eat free.  And if you go right before a holiday they have a face painter there.  My kids love it.  Alvin always picks the full face designs and Reid and Clara usually just get something on their cheeks.  This was a funny one Alvin picked.
