Happy Halloween

We had a fairly uneventful Halloween this year. We went to my grandma and grandpa Spear's and did a little trick or treating. Then we went to our ward trunk or treat party. The kids had lots of fun, I survived. Garret was Tigger from Winnie the Pooh, Katie was Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, and Tanner was Anikain Skywalker from Star Wars. Just a funny note on Katie. She of course could not decide what she wanted to be so she was a midnight fairy (a black fairy) for dance, a ballerina for school, and then Dorothy for Halloween night. When we got to my grandma and grandpa's, my great aunt was there and she gave Katie these black cat ears with a mask which Katie really wanted to wear. So Katie was actually a black cat Dorothy.

Pumpkin Carving at Grandma and Grandpa Greats

Time for the annual pumpkin carving. It's such a great tradition. We go to my grandma and grandpa Spear's house, carve pumpkins and have boboli pizza's. It's so much fun. Our friends the Enloe's came with us to enjoy the great times.

Kid's pictures

I finally got around to getting my kids pictures taken. Aren't they cute. Of course I am a little biased.

Katie's Dance Class

They had a mini little recital for Halloween at Katie's dance class. They performed a dance to the song Monster Mash. Katie adores dance.

Tanner's Football Team

Tanner talked me in to letting him play football this year too. Not just football, tackle football. It has been a busy fall. He had a practice every night but Wed. and then 2 games on Sat. Good thing that we live so close to the school where his practices were held. He played on the line for both offense and defense. Imagine that. Actually he was the smallest big kid. Kids that weighed over 91 pounds had to be on the line and couldn't carry the ball, and he was 95 pounds. He just missed the cutoff. He was a little sad, but he really got into being a linebacker. He had some awesome sacks on the quarter back. His coach said that he was a monster. Sometimes in practice the coach had to tell him to back off a little bit so that they could complete a play. He really enjoyed the season.

Tanner's Soccer Team

Tanner has enjoyed another fun year of soccer. He has a great coach and a really fun team. He played goalie a lot this year and was really good at it. He's not afraid to dive right in after a ball even if there are tons for kicking feet near his head.

Pumpkin Cake

For Tanner's school they had a cake decorating contest. We had lots of fun decorating this pumpkin cake. Luckily Grammy came and helped us. We didn't win, but they used the cake in the cake walk for the school's family fun night.

Garret and His Computer

Garret loves to play on computers. As soon as someone starts typing he is there to help. One day Kirt was working at his computer at the kitchen table and of course Garret started to attack so I went and got Katie's Barbie computer. Garret worked on his computer next to Kirt and thought he was just the coolest thing.
