halloween week

 Halloween is underway at our house!
The boys got to dress up for the first time on Saturday to show Grandma their costumes.
Gone are the days when they were cutesy... 
Elliott begged and begged for this scary beast with no face and glowing eyes.
And pretty sure Ollie chose this costume to go along with the sword backpack he found before the costume...
We ran out of time to find what Linc wanted to be, which was fine because he was happy to choose from the whole box of boy costumes we have already.
Ollie wore the knight costume that Linc is wearing when he was two, so it's a little snug on Linc at 3 & 1/2. He loves it though.
 Linc and his favorite small kitty, Vega.
He can actually hold her, unlike our giant cat!

 Cousin Benny showed up in almost the same outfit as Elliott!
They are best friends, so it makes sense I guess.
Funny to see two faceless phantoms shooting the breeze.

 Cousin Will as Buzz Lightyear.
Elliott wore this costume years ago!

 Some of the cousins- Elli, Elliott, Benny, Ollie, Trevan, Addie, Linc, Will.

 Our scary little boys!
 Lindsey's fam
 Jackie and Trevan
 We carved pumpkins on Monday night.
 Elliott carved a dragon and did it all by himself!
It was so nice to not have to do it for him.
He was a little disappointed thinking it didn't look right- but it looks great lit up at night.

Happy Halloween!

Just got home from an AMAZING trip to Ireland (Killarney & Dublin) and London.
It was 10 days of exploring with 2 days of travel on both sides.
Just getting back to real life and schedules (we've been wide awake every morning at like 5:30...)
and going through my pics- can't wait to share them.
It feels like it was a dream!
(I'm afraid I might use this term a lot...)

temple dedication

 Last week our regular church was cancelled for a special meeting to dedicate the Brigham City Temple for everyone 8 years old and up. So we watched our neighbor's littles while they went to the early session and they watched Ollie and Linc while we went to the 12:00 session. It was fun to go with Elliott and tell him more about the temple- it's amazing how many questions he had. "Why are they wearing all white- even their ties?" He was also amazed at all the beautiful pictures of inside and outside different temples they were showing before the meeting started. I loved hearing Elder Packer (who was born and raised in Brigham City) say how he had traveled over 2 & 1/2 million miles in his life all for one purpose- to teach people about Jesus Christ. What a life!
It was a great meeting and day!
I look super tired in these pics. This was after the meeting and I was ready for a nap :)
