Pumpkin Carving 2019

I made Katie and Garret go and help me pick out the pumpkins for carving.

We carved pumpkins tonight! It was lots of fun. We also had Papa Murphy's pizza.  Rachelle and Ender didn't make it because Ender was sick:(

 Garret had fun just destroying one pumpkin.  He made himself a hat.

 Katie carved a silly jack o' lantern face
 Garret carved a ghost
 Sadie and Michelle carved a heart
 Nixon and Michelle carved Mad Eye Moody
 Cameron and Ollie carved a scary jack o'lantern face with a little pumpkin in the eye
 Jon and Scarlett carved Dory
 I carved spider
 Ike and Michelle carved batman
 Jon and Cam carved Mario and Luigi

 Katie, Mady, Olivia, and Cameron Smith went to Scarywood.  They turn the amusement park Silverwood into a bunch of different haunted houses for the Halloween season.  Katie thought it was a lot of fun except for the fact that it was so cold (like 25 degrees).  She said she didn't really get scared at all.  They also got to ride a few of the rides.  They rode Timber Terror (it went backwards) and Panic Plunge.

 As they were leaving, Cameron pretended his car wouldn't start.  He got out of the car to see if he could see what was wrong and hollered to the girls that they had to come see this.  He had had one of his friends put a poster inside the hood of his car.  The poster asked Mady and Olivia to go to the CV Homecoming Dance with him.  A little strange that he asked both of them, but I guess he didn't want to hurt either of their feelings.

Olivia Comes to Seminary

Olivia is taking running start at SFCC so she has to do early morning seminary usually.  Her school got canceled today so she came to seminary with Katie and Mady.  They were so excited that she came with them that they had to sit on her lap. (Issac Woolley photo bombed)

We needed to get out of the house between Sunday conference sessions so we rode our bikes over to the playground at Chester Elementary.  Our friends the Fry's and the Osborn's had the same idea so we got to hand out and visit with them too.

Kraziness in the Kennel

Garret, Kirt, and Lane Smith (a kid from our ward) went to the Kraziness in the Kennel.  They got to see the 3 point contest, skills contest, and a 16 minute inner squad scrimmage. They also got to get a poster autographed by the players.  And Kirt got to talk to his buddies Anton Watson and Brock Ravet.  Anton played at Gonzaga Prep and is the same age as Tanner and Brock was on Tanner's AAU team.

Katie, Mady, and Garret went bowling on Friday night.  Katie asked me if she took Garret, if I would pay for them to go.  Good play Katie.
