Halloween was a success this year. We had a scary witch, a nice witch, Mario and a skeleton. We attended our ward's Trunk or Treat. The kids had a blast. We brought some friends from Davis' t-ball team. And we saw that our neighbor, Finn, was also Mario. Davis kept saying, "look mom, it's double Mario!" The kids had fun playing some games. But I think they had more fun passing out candy. All 3 of them gave candy to each trick or treater. This was the first year we trick or treated in our own neighborhood. I really enjoyed it. We have such a small neighborhood that it's not overwhelming to walk around. Then we went back to our house, sat in the driveway and passed out candy. At 8 'o clock we closed up shop.

Bennett at 6 months

Bennett Boy is doing great at 6 months. I'm starting to feed him baby food. I've only tried peas and oatmeal. I'm sure you can guess which one he didn't like. He is very sensitive to noise. He gets startled easily. He's also not very regular on his napping. He'll sleep 30 minutes here, 45 minutes there. Part of it is my fault. I go to the gym everyday and it's always around his morning nap time. Then I have to run errands or take kids to and from school, so it really it hard to get a regular set schedule. Hopefully that will come soon. He always naps in his swing, which I really need to break him of that habit as well. He'll soon be to big for it! Other than that, he is doing great.

State Fair of Texas

One of my favorite events is the State Fair. I love trying all the fried foods and looking at the exhibits. It's just a good time. We took the kids out of school for it again this year. I hate doing that, but I definitely don't want to go on the weekend. Everyone had a blast.

Country Critters

I took the kids to a pumpkin patch with our playgroup. It was a lot of fun and really close by which was nice. The kids got to do a pony ride, hay ride, petting zoo, bounce houses, story time, duck races and were able to take home their own pumpkins. We invited our neighbors and their girls, Abby & Lily joined the fun.

Davis is 5

Davis is 5! He's really enjoying preschool. Not 1 time has he said he doesn't want to go. Probably because his best friend Van is in his class. He's working on writing his name. One of his favorite expressions that he uses all the time is "just one question". We had his party at the park this year. It turned out great. The weather was nice and cool. We brought the bounce house as an extra thing to play on. But the big hit was probably the pinata. The kids went crazy for it. I have a feeling I'll be forced to buy 1 every year. Also, it should be noted that earlier in the day Davis said that when people sing Happy Birthday to him, he doesn't want any "cha cha chas". I thought that was pretty hilarious. As a kid, Davis is pretty funny. He's still very affectionate. He still loves to kiss me constantly. But when he gets upset, he gets really upset. He'll pout like a champ. And if I tell him something he doesn't want to hear he'll fold his arms and look away.
