Filled to the brim

What a day! We started out at the pumpkin patch where Brooklyn found her new found love...pumpkins. She said hi to almost every single one we passed (and believe me, there were a LOT of pumpkins!) and she gave lots of loves to her favorite ghourds. Brooklyn seemed to thoroughly enjoy falling in the mud knowing that her parents (especially her mommy) cringes anytime she touches anything remotely dirty. She even had her first taste of the stuff! Yumm! She laughed, she cried, it was a fun time had by all. Troy hid under cover in the sling the whole time.

After naps, we headed over to our ward Halloween party. Great food, great friends, AMAZING decorations...you get the picture. Brookyn had a ball. And of course both she and Troy were a hit in their Halloween costumes. Brooklyn was a duck, Troy was a skunk, and mommy was a farmer. Daddy was a dead-beat (he didn't want to dress up, slacker). Brooklyn didn't really understand the concept of "Trick-or-treating," and tried to give back her candy a lot, but she had a blast!



"Look Mom, a dirt clod!" "Yuck!"



Candy, candy, candy!Brooklyn already in a chocolate comatose. See the remnants all over her face?

So cute! Brooklyn is at such a fun age. Enjoy it because it passes so quick. And Erik looked like he was dressed up to me. He was a Bronco fan. But maybe it doesn't count when he dresses up like a Bronco fan everyday of the year.

What cute kids! Ethan is also obsessed with pumpkins he calls them "Punks" I hope to take him to the pumpkin patch. Troys costume is also adorable along with miss Brooklynn. How fun.

Those costumes are absolutely adorable! Don't ya love this time of year?! Holidays are so much more fun with kiddos...watching their excitement and curiousity is so great! By the way, did you go through her candy and eat all the peanut butter cups like I do to my poor, unsuspecting children.?!

What cute costumes! They look like they had a lot of fun. I love the pumpkin kissing one. That is really cute that she kissed and waved hi to every single one.

Holly has a question: "Why does Brooklyn have a leash?" She is very curious.

Erik and Marcie + 2 said...

Brooklyn has a leash because Brooklyn tunes out her parents/ It also helps hold her up when she is about to fall.
