A fun week

Maile and Emmy with their best buddy Katie

This was Livy's favorite part....all the treats. She is such a treat monster these days.

This past weekend was busy, but super fun. Our stake has an annual fall family fun festival with face painting, cotton candy, bounce houses, games, balloons, yummy homemade doughnuts, and tons of other things, it was really fun for the girls.

This was the first year I took on the challenge of making most our costumes (not sure that I'll do it again) way more work than I planned on. I can just be so retarded when it comes to sewing. My goal was to finish them for this weekend so we could wear them more than just one night. I finally got them done Friday, so we made the journey up to Tuscon for trick or treating at the zoo. We didn't realize that all of Tuscon would be there. Seriously if we didn't already drive an hour and 20 minutes to get there we would have gone back home. It was insanely crowded. It took us like 20 minutes to find a parking spot, then we stood in line for over a half an hour before we made it in by that time it was past bedtime and we were wondering if it was really worth it (although, it was fun checking out all the costumes while waiting in line). Once we got in we didn't wonder any longer. There were themes all along the way with pirates, Alice in Wonderland, Star Wars, Nemo, Disney villains and princesses. There wasn't a ton of candy but I don't think the girls were disappointed. The only disappointment was that our camera ran out of batteries so we missed tons of great picture spots, this was the best one we got. At least we have next weekend.

I forgot about some of the park pictures we took earlier this week. We are loving the fall weather.
