Tricks and Treats!!

Okay, I made this pie like a long time ago, and you know me....I always love to take pictures of what I bake. This one is a peanut butter and jelly pie. The crust turned out not so good, I totally messed up on it, but the pie itself was delicious!!!
Here our some pictures of our family going to the pumpkin patch! It was a windy day but the kids had so much fun! We went on a tractor ride and got a lot of pumpkins!

We also got to ride around on the little train. The trip to the pumpkin patch is starting to become our little family tradition. The kids just love it! We're also having fun getting ready for Halloween. I've been trying to put together Rayden's costume and he is just so excited to go trick or treating! I'm not excited for all the candy around the house but what can you do? Ryker is turning into a sugar fiend. He knows where I hide the candy bucket in the house and he walks over to where it is and points and screams!!! Too bad he ate all the candy the other day so now the bucket is empty. I have to listen to him scream and scream and scream because the bucket is empty. I guess Halloween can't come soon enough!

I know it's been a while since I updated and I have tons of pictures and video clips to post, but I just haven't had time. We went to Maplegrove campground the other night for F.H.E. and had a good time playing on the rope swing over a small stream. I've got the best clip of Randy going across the river that I think I will send in to America's Funniest Home videos. If I ever figure out how to post video clips on my blog then I will have to show you all, I know you will love it!

Other than that we've just been keeping busy with scouts, school and work!!! I can't believe how fast this month has gone by.

Oh, so I have to tell you that I actually went on a date with my husband last night without the kids!!! I don't know the last time that happened. We went to the high school performance of A Night of Shakespeare. I felt like I was in high school was kinda weird. But the students did a really great job and I had a great time getting a break from the Ryker!!! He has been teething this last week or so and has developed a high pitch scream any time he gets frustrated (which is every other second). I get to the point by the end of the day where I just can't handle the scream!!! One of his many nicknames is Rykes Bikes. Now we call him Rykes Screamer, oh and also Rykes Biter (He bites a lot). But I just can't help but love the little guy!!!! As much as his screams drive me to rip my hair out....he is just so cute!!!

We also had a fun time visiting friends and family in St. George last weekend. We went shopping, ate a bunch of junk food, did pedicures, watched conference and enjoyed the warm St. George sun!! I'm so not excited for winter but at least I'm not in the icy cold Missouri this winter!!!
