ok, finally- Halloween

Sophie was a dog for Halloween, it was a costume that my mom and sister picked for her. We went to lots of different Trick or Treat events but we enjoyed the ward trunk or treat best because it was fun for her to see the people she knew.

It didn't take her long to learn she had to hold out her bucket and smile and she could get some candy. She really was getting into it in the end. She ended up with so much candy. We went through and picked out everything we didn't think she could eat and that we didn't like and took it to a candy buy back. She got $1 (she had just under a pound), a toothbrush, and a free kids meal at Outback Steak House. I thought it was a pretty good trade. She was super excited about the toothbrush that lights up.
A week before Halloween we carved our pumpkins and they almost didn't make it to Halloween, I forget how fast they wither in this cold climate. Josh's is the reverse jack-o-lantern and mine is the starry sky. If you couldn't tell Sophie's is the colored one :)

We interrupt your regular scheduled programing...

... for some random thoughts from me.

I am sorry I have been putting off blogging, I need to post about Halloween and my trip to Arizona but I have been putting it off, but I had a few little notes.

- I made a list of all the projects I need to get done before Christmas and I decided that I am crazy. It's not like I am really super into homemade gifts I just have tons of little things I will be working on probably until Christmas eve.

- Is it bad that I hope for snow just in the hopes it will make it warmer outside? I never thought I would ever hope for snow, I really picked the wrong climate to live in.

- Yesterday I walked through the Christmas section of Walmart and got so excited. It feels like the holidays are coming super fast this year but I am so excited about it all. I have a feeling that in January I will have a real crash with the reality of a long winter without any holidays left.

- For months Josh and I have been watching Gilmore Girls, all of them, we finished a few days before I left for Arizona. As much as I enjoyed the show and I thought I would be sad when we had finished but I wasn't, I have really enjoyed our evenings where we don't know what we will be doing. We have played lots more games and talked a lot. We still are watching a few shows but they are once a week type things.

Hopefully I will be motivated soon to catch up on blogging (I keep trying to get Josh to do it).

Fall came fast it seems, Sophie and I went to Rexburg for a day and came back to all the leaves off our tree. I am kind of sad we missed it but we have sure had fun playing in all our leaves.

It has been perfect place to practice her new skill- jumping.

Pumpkin Patch

I know it looks like she is just listening to it but she was giving it a hug. We kept handing her little pumpkins and she would put them down and try to get a big one. It was so funny. We did come to a consensus on a good medium one. Later I will post pictures of our pumpkins after we decorated them
