Grandma Alldredge's Halloween party

The kids anticipate this Halloween party all year. They love their Grandma but they especially love that she dresses up just like they do! This year she dressed up as a Cow. She even had a cow bell around her neck! She had to do a little explaining about the Utters hanging off of her! lol. After group pictures were taken they were off to their first activity which was the Pumpkin Pinata. They each took a turn with the bat and eventually got it open. Tons of Candy bars fell out and they were grabbing to get some in their sacks. Then they had to eat a donut off of a string without using their hands. They moved on to making a spider web out of string, playing don't drop the ghost, doing a fun cake walk with Kristi's fabulous cupcakes. Hailey didn't like this game so much. She cried the whole time because her number never got called out. We fixed that problem quick and all was well! We finished off with pass the rat and a fun fishing game. Grandma always goes way above and beyond and we love her so much for it. She has a special relationship with them and they love her a lot.

Brooke's family was so cute we had to take a family picture
baby Seth was such a trooper!

Cabin Fun!

We had a really fun weekend up at the Bear Lake Cabin. The drive up was so beautiful and we loved looking at all of the different colors of the tree's. We were sad that Eric couldn't come with us this time because of work but we still had lots of fun. We had the best weather and loved carving our pumpkins. Sadie did her's all by herself, Uncle Jason helped Hailey carve a pumpkin tooth in her's and Brin did most of hers by herself. They turned out cute and loved carving them. Some of the kids then went on a hike while the older girls and mom's made some cute mummy sucker's out of oreo's. They were so fun to make and tasted even better. Kristi made us a delicious soup dinner and had orange pumpkin bread bowls to put our soup in. It was a really fun weekend and the kids were sad to leave but we were happy to come home and see Dad. We missed him tons!

Count Down to Halloween

I love this time of year and all of the fun activities and traditions we do as a family. We started off October making a fun Halloween cake. Sadie came up with the idea and decorated most of the cake by herself. We had tons of fun picking out the perfect pumpkin at the pumpkin patch. The girls loved chasing each other through the hay maze and we each ended up with our perfect pumpkin.
