{High School Reunion}

A few weeks ago Cody and I went to my 11 year High School Reunion (they didn't do one last year). I was a bit nervous to go since I really haven't kept in touch with too many people from high school. The reunion included two classes, and I come from a large school so I didn't know how many people I would recognize.....

The answer to that was not too many! I was surprised to see how much some people have changed, and then others looked just the same. I had a great time eating and hanging out with my sweet friends, Waterworld Chicas :o) We all worked together in the summers at Waterworld and had so many crazy and fun experiences together. Now we are all married, some of us have children, one of us is a doctor, and we all have grown a lot. It was great to be back together. It was a fun night and I wish I had taken more pictures!!

October has come and gone....it was a busy and fun month filled with lots of parties, pumpkins, costumes, and treats! The boys enjoyed picking out a pumpkin and pulling all the slimy seeds out.

Cody worked hard finding a jack-o-lantern pattern online, and printed and cut it out. He wasn't thrilled when I told him that they boys should be able to draw with markers on the pumpkin and then he should cut out their design..... ;o)

Mr. Pumpkin turned out to have three eyes, a carrot shaped nose, and an interesting mouth but it looked great when he was carved and had candles glowing inside.

This year Rhett has been talking for months about being The Emperor from Star Wars. I will admit, I tried to discourage him because it was a difficult costume to find and so freaky looking!! His heart was set on it, and so we ordered the mask online and found a black costume to wear and he was set. Ethan wanted to be a vampire, and Kade picked out a lion costume that looked so cute.

This was the first year we stayed home and went trick-or-treating in our neighborhood, and the boys lasted a long time. Rhett and Ethan even went through the haunted house of a ward member. It was a fun month, now it's on to Thanksgiving and Christmas!

{Soccer Stars!}

Rhett and Ethan had a fun soccer season full of many evening practices and Saturday games. They both improved a lot and had a great time playing and making new friends. Rhett especially enjoyed playing on the same team as his cousin Mason. Now we are on to baseball and t-ball....busy, busy but I wouldn't have it any other way! It's fun being outside together and enjoying the fabulous weather we earned by the HOT summer!
