Happy Halloween!!!!

Halloween is the Best!!!! The costumes and the candy and the pumpkin it! So here are a few pics of my little stinkers in their Halloween garb..about to embark on the two hour candy hunt! Seriously...they were out for a long time this year...partly because it was warm, and also because they are getting older.
I got to stay home and pass out the candy. I love to see all the little kids especially the ones that are too scared to come to the door because of the scarecrow that sits on the porch...they are my favorite.
Now I am left much of this candy would my kids miss if I throw it away?

shhhhh...don't tell!

It's my favorite time of year know when there's a little nip in the air and its perfect sweater weather! We go up every year to Snowbird for Oktoberfest...and oh how I love it. The German food, the polka dancing...and oh yes the chicken dance! This is one tradition that I will never let matter how old my kids get and how lame they think it is...never, do you hear me!!!!

This year there was quite a bit of snow on the ground and we had a great snowball fight. I love that every year is different. I always channel the days when I was going up with Jr high and high school friends...then college...Joe and I before kids and every year as we added a new kid to the family.
All those years live in me and come back to me when I am there. Its like you are all there with me. I know that I am sounding more than a little corney here...but that's how much I love it.

So to all of you that share my memories and love to shake your chicken wings on the dance floor at Snowbird....I say...

There's just nothing like a Mormon at a beer festival!!!!
