Gearing up for Halloween

Time to break out the Halloween gear! I think this is the first year we will have "fun" with the holiday. Zach is old enough to understand what is going on. He points out pumpkins when ever he sees them, he have practiced knocking on doors and saying "trick or treat", and most importantly he LIKES WEARING HIS COSTUME (well, at least the costume from last year!).

We started the weekend off heading to the Maybe pumpkin patch in South Jordan. This is our third year going to this place. Once we got into the pumpkin field Zach took off running around and looking at all the pumpkins.

Then he realized he "wanted" all the he kept bringing us pumpkins to put in our cart...

...then he realized some pumpkins were just too heavy to lift. But he still wanted them (of course).

We let Logan to a bit of exploring with the pumpkins.

But he mostly wanted to just be held...good thing Grandpa Gray was able to go with us!

The kids rode in the pumpkin cart. Believe it or not they SHARED!

This was our final attempt at getting a picture of them together...I guess this is as good as it is going to get. Not quite Christmas card material....

Once we had the pumpkins back home - Zach placed them out in front of our house for everyone to see!

Jen decorated our fireplace mantle....homemaking skills at its best.

By this time Logan had found the Halloween decoration box and decided to help us out by emptying its contents.

...and of COURSE we save the best for last....the Halloween costumes. Logan is going as a dragon this year (Zach's costume from two years ago).

Zach is going as an army man..but he saw his costume from last year (that he wouldn't wear very long last year) and HAD to wear even though it is too small he squeezed into it....a monster.

The kids LOVED the costumes. They would have worn them all day! They were playing nice and checking each other out!

The kids looked like they were having a good time so Dustin even had to get in on the costume fun!
