Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!!! Emmy was Vampiress and looked aDoRaBlE! We had a great time at our ward's Trunk or Treat. Jake and I dressed up in our cop costumes and won the award for "Best Security Costume". We also stopped at a few houses for trick or treating. Emmy loved saying "Trick or Treat!" and putting candy in her pumpkin bucket.
Here are some pics of Emmy in her costume:

The cutest Vampiress I've ever seen :)

We were at Grammy & Papa's house. Papa kept reaching his hand through the opening in the rock wall and scaring Emmy. If you look close, you can see my dad's hand reaching out for Emmy . . .

We went down to Tuacahn on Thursday night and got to see Thriller from the Odyssey Dance Theatre. It was so awesome!!! I will definitely be going again in the future. Matt Dorame from So You Think You Can Dance performs with them - it was fun to see him dance in person! We took Emmy along with us and she loved watching the dancers! She did so good and just sat on our laps and watched the whole time.

Emmy was a little scared of the zombies

Matt Dorame w/ Linds and me. Poor Emmy was squished between Matt and I. I guess I was trying to get really close to him ;)

Halloween Party Fun!

Jake and I went to my sister's house on Wednesday night for a Halloween party and a night of fun! Jake wanted to be Ponch from CHiPs so I decided to do a theme & go as a cop, too. We had a lot of fun! Thanks, Linds!

The group at the party - lots of fun costumes!
We had yummy food and we had some scary stuff to drink . . .

Allergies = no fun!

On Sunday, we were at my parent's house. Emmy was on my dad's lap and he was eating his nuts (I think they are his favorite food :) ). While we were eating dinner, I noticed she had hives on her arms and she was scratching everywhere. Her face even had hives and one of her eyes was swollen. The oil from the nuts got on Emmy and gave her hives! It was so sad! If you don't remember, I talked about Emmy's food allergies HERE. I guess we have to be more careful around Emmy!

Fishing with Papa

I am watching Lindsey's kids this weekend and Papa decided to take us all fishing in his fishing boat! We went to Minersville Lake and had a blast. We didn't catch anything (the water was really muddy and murky - yuck!) but we still had fun. Emmy had fun until she realized she was wearing a life jacket and couldn't take it off :) She spend the last 20 minutes (or more) screaming and crying. It's funny because we went water skiing this summer and the life jacket didn't bother her at all . . . I felt bad for her, but it was kind of funny! Here are some highlights of our fishing trip:

Ella didn't want to leave the lake. She wanted to keep fishing until she got a fish!

Emmy before she realized she didn't like the life jacket.

Emmy and mommy - if you look at Emmy's face, she's starting to notice the life jacket . . .

More fall pics

Last Sunday morning, we decided to go for another drive up the mountain and listen to conference on the way. To our surprise, it had snowed on top! So I got a couple nice pics before my camera died :)

A nice, snowy river

Leaves on a quaking aspen - my favorite trees!

I Heart Fall

Fall is my favorite time of the year!  The leaves change, the air becomes crisp, it smells so good outside and I find myself wanting to make soup everyday for dinner (it was cream of cauliflower with cheese the other night . . . yum!).  Seriously, what's not to love about fall?  My dad, Emmy and I decided to drive up Cedar Canyon yesterday to capture the beautiful changing leaves before it was too late.  Here are some highlights of what we saw:
