Pre-Halloween Festivities & Cousin Visit

We enjoyed some fun activities leading up to Halloween.  For Cal's cub scout pack meeting they met and carved squash and probably did some other fun activities...Lee attended not me.  I did slip in and get a couple of photos.

Meanwhile, the Mia Maids and I did a Halloween Party for the young women.  It turned out cute and I hope that the young women had a fun time! My friend Jenna let me borrow her fun decorations and cool fog machine!

We had some treats they could assemble--like "witches' hats", and played a couple of games too, like bobbing for apples.

Apparently at the middle school you earn a "positive" for doing something good.  I can't remember if I mentioned this on the blog, as I for sure did on instagram.  Since Clark received one "positive" last grading period his name was entered once into a drawing and he won these cool headphones!

Right now he is trying to sell them.  With Black Friday around the corner though, he keeps having to lower his price on craigslist, ha ha.

One night Lee got something in his eye.  He could not get it out so he brought home some dye and  a portable light in hope that maybe I could help him.  No luck.  He finally gave up on trying to find whatever it was, and in the morning it was gone.  Yay!

Lois and Jeff went to Maine right before Halloween for a dental school interview for Jeff.  Their boys hung out with us for a few days.

The night of our ward Halloween party we stopped at a park to play and we had dinner there-canned soup.  Not the best dinner, but there was only going to be snacks at the party so I figured something was better than nothing.

The kids had a fun time eating treats, playing games and trunk-or-treating!

This was my "prize" for winning the contest. Maybe I'll post that video sometime.  It's on Lee's phone though.

Lee ordered some freaky contact lens.  He dressed as darkly as possible (face too obviously) so his eyes would stand out.  It was hard to look at him, ha ha.

The kids brought home a lot of candy!

He was so cute during Sunday school.

Random...but every once in a great while this kids like to build a tower of Duplos all the way to the ceiling.

On Monday I took Rhett, Blake and Reed to eat with the kids at school.  We didn't go to the middle school though. Sorry Clark.  All the cousins enjoyed the outing.

Chocolate milk with a straw is the best!
