Logan's Mission Call

My brother received his mission call yesterday. I've never seen him shake so much. Everyone was guessing where he would go. My dad said Germany or Austria. Well, he was called the the German, Munich/Austria mission. Both of the places my dad guessed! I'll try to get the video uploaded later. We're proud of you Logan!

It's been a busy week...

So far we've been to 2 pumpkin patches, 2 Halloween parties, and a Halloween carnival and it isn't even Halloween yet. Friday Kaleb has his preschool party and we have our trunk-or-treat. Kaleb is perfecting the pirate Arrrgh and Ashton loves saying ooo-ooo-ooo with his banana. I'm Dorothy and you can't tell but Matt is a tornado. I'll have to get a better picture of his costume this week. We had a lot of fun on Saturday starting with the carnival. Kaleb decorated pumpkins and cookies, tried to eat a donut off of a string, threw pumpkin seeds and darts, and won the cake walk. It's become a tradition to go the Carnival at SLCC. And the best part is that it's free! Then we had our first party and the Pidcock's house. We had yummy soup and and it was fun seeing everyone all dressed up. Then it was off to the Quinney's for some games, caramel apple making and more food. That's what I love most about this time of year is hanging out with family and friends. And with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming I'm sure there will be many more get-togethers.

Ashton is getting his front 2 bottom teeth and gets around pretty quick now. Although it's nice that he can get around and keep himself occupied there is a downside to it.....he gets into things and can make more of a mess. I haven't had to "put things up high" or "out of reach" for 3 or so years. But it's cute watching him crawl/scoot everywhere.

Kaleb made a "My Feelings Book" at preschool. They have the kids fill in the blank and they write their responses down. This is how it went:

I feel sad dad puts me in time out. (at least he didn't say mom!)
I feel scared when.....driving on all the roads. (I promise I'm not a bad driver!)
I feel angry when.....I don't ever get angry. (ha, yeah right)
I feel happy when.....I'm all by myself. (almost sad)
I feel surprised when......I don't want to be surprised. (so I guess no surprise parties)

Matt and I laughed when we read it. Kaleb is getting excited for Halloween. He insists on being a pirate again which saves me from buying a costume. And Ashton is going to be a monkey that we found at Thrift Town for $3.

What not to do...

Matt works at the Zion's Bank in Smith's and when he walked in the door last night this is what he was carrying....The odd look on my face made him realize what he had done. We both laughed and then I of course had to take a picture.

I try to keep Ashton awake until 12:15 when we take Kaleb to preschool. Otherwise he'll fall sleep around 11:45 and I have to wake him up and he won't go back down for a nap. Today the poor guy just couldn't wait, I turned around and he was sleeping on his bottle in the middle of the floor.
