Halloween 2008

Our ward's "Trunk or Treat" was on Saturday night. We had so much fun with Colton and seeing him "learn" how to trick or treat. It did not take long for him to catch on and he was so proud of all of his candy. Of course he was also upset when we took it away from him too! (I think it'll make great incentives to use the potty)

This year we all had fun dressing up. Our theme was Curious George.
As most of you know, Colton LOVES the TV show. When his costume arrived last month I thought he would never take it off... He did though, and I was able to keep it safe. I wanted to buy Seth's costume but it was too pricey. So, thanks to Savers, the Websters and two long nights I was able to pull it off. I was pretty happy with it once it was done, but there were a few times (while making it) I really wished that I had bought it! Seth is the perfect "Man with the Yellow Hat" and I was pleased that Professor Wiseman was SO easy!

This was the best shot I could get of Colton all night! He did not stop moving!

George and Thomas (Xander)

Colton and Taylor (He was the cutest Golfer!)

It was pretty easy to spot Seth in a crowd that night!

We had a great time, but were exhausted by the end! I said this last year, and I'll say it again: How do you parents with more than one child do this???? Seriously!

The best part is that we've got 3 more Halloween activities this week so our costumes will get put to good use!

Back from Taylor (again)

We couldn't resist one more trip to Taylor!

Seth had a few days off from school so we decided to head up to Taylor for a long weekend with my dad. The weather was great - even a little warmer during the day than we thought it was going to be, but the nights were crisp and cool - the way it should be in October! Colton had so much fun running around, getting dirty and especially playing with Grandpa Mac!

On our way up, Seth, drove too close to the side of the road where the "ridges" are and Colton started laughing and said "Toot" "Toot". I told him, Yes! Even cars toot sometimes! ha ha

We went to a pumpkin patch and corn maze in Taylor, here are some of the photos

Colton went to Nursery WITHOUT crying! FIRST TIME EVER!

We always leave him, but he will usually cry for about 15 min - before he settles down. It used to be 45 min, so we were happy with 15. BUT yesterday NO TEARS at all!

It only took 9 months!
