Nobody is interested in a nice fall picture...they just want candy!
Isn't that one Pretty Pumpkin?
I know it is still 4 days until Halloween but we have already been busy celebrating...and we still have alot more Celebrating to GO before Friday! We were invited to a halloween party for the kids with some friends from our ward. Brittanie was by far the most interested in the organized activities. They had a table for painting and decorating pumpkins and another table for decorating your own sugar cookies. Britt was torn about where to start! After decorating her pumpkin then she decorated cookies for everyone in our family. Then she went back and added more "embellishments" to her pumpkin....and then she went back and decorated another round of cookies! Her princess costume was splattered with alot of paint and frosting but it all came off in the wash. Nathan had no nap and was a party-pooper for the 1st 30 min but he soon warmed up and put several coats of paint on his pumpkin. The highlight of his night was play vaccum he found and played with all night!! (Note to self: Get Nathan trained on using the REAL dust buster!) Saturday morning brought an event that Scott and I both vowed we would never do again and that was Boise's Boo at the Zoo. We went last year and it was wall-to-wall people/strollers and hardly any candy. Well, this year Albertson's was a sponsor and Scott got FREE tickets...so we all know how he feels about getting Free Stuff! We decided we had nothing better to do so we washed Britt's costume and headed into Boise with the masses! It was still wall-to-wall people but since we got in for Free we didn't feel as pressed to get our money's worth. We loved seeing the new African exhibit with the Lions and Giraffes. Britt showed us how smart she is. She would trick-or-treat to the people handing out candy on BOTH sides of the person that was dressed up!!! Her Dad has taught her all about VALUE! Britt and Nate came away with a bag of loot that made them smile. It was a much better Boo at the Zoo this year.
