We had our Annual Trunk-Or-Treat last tonight at our church building. It was a three ward event.... so tons of little trick-or-treater's. Laney was Mini Mouse and Cooper was Buddy the T-Rex from the TV cartoon Dinosaur Train. They love Halloween just as much as their Daddy does. Before the candy the little ones had a costume parade. We were also treated to homemade donuts and hot chocolate which we passed on as the line was too long. We got our favorite "chicken & fries" after instead.

 Cooper was a bit confused that we were trick-or-treating today and it was not officially Halloween, because he is excited for his Daddy's birthday also. He was so cute!

 Laney can only pose for so long!

 Mommy was a witch using last years shirt. It was a bit too big, but she too lazy to get a new one.

 They were a bit pooped after!

WE LOVE the FALL SEASON: Last Saturday we headed to our "Annual Pumpkin Farm Trip". We love our local farm "Bi-Zi" farms. We first headed on a tractor hay ride to get our pumpkins. Mommy had to find the "perfect" pumpkins and Daddy toted them around. Cooper and Daddy then washed them and took them to the van so we could continue to have fun. Cooper and Laney then played, in the hay bale maze, which Laney didn't want to leave. Next was the best part of all... The ANIMALS! They got to feed and pet the animals.

After the farm we headed to our next tradition "lunch" at a restaurant. This year it was Red Robbin. The next evening we carved the pumpkins. Daddy is the carver and mommy is the cleaner. We also made apple crisp for desert and baked the pumpkin seeds for a later snack. Cooper wanted his picture taken in his "Buddy the Dinosaur" costume and Laney was wearing one of Cooper's old Elephant costumes.... Did I say WE LOVE FALL!
