Lots of excitement leading up to Halloween! It's such a fun holiday. We had our ward trunk-or-treat on Friday with a chili dinner afterwards. Yaks and Boo invited their friends, P and M to come. I think they had a fun time! I didn't get any pictures of the rest of the family's costumes, and I only remembered to snap some selfies after we had gone home!

Friday morning was Yaks' last soccer game! With my creativity sparked by the Halloween costumes, I thought it would be fun to do a poster, so I stayed up late Friday night making a little "Thunder Pickles" poster to cheer them on. What a name...Thunder Pickles! So funny.
Sunday we had Stake Conference. The entire stake was all together in our stake center, which is unusual. Josh scored us some great seats on the stage with a lot of leg-room to let the kids spread out. After that long meeting, we treated ourselves to some pumpkin carving.
Diddles very meticulously cleaned out her pumpkin of every. single. little. seed. It was quite impressive! She did it all by herself, too.
Can we talk about this shirt for a moment? I know it's hard to miss. It was an old DI when I dressed up as a "tourist" for Halloween years ago. It's 100% silk, and Yaks discovered it and LOVES to wear it. He's always loved soft things. Rubbing baby's skin, fuzzy blankets, and now the feel of this shirt. He looks like such a goof-ball, but he doesn't even care! I told him he can wear it around the house, but by NO means can he even go to the mailbox wearing it!
As a joke, Josh changed into his Hawaiian shirt to see if Yaks would notice.
Funny moment when he realized it.
I'll post some photos of costumes tomorrow!
