The other day we went out on some friends property for a little family campfire. After a few wrong turns and many attempts at starting a fire our foil dinners were cooking and we were huddled up warm by the fire.
We also took out Jared's new BB gun and had a little target practice. And of course a campfire wouldn't be a campfire with out some smores. Nothing like some outdoor fun family time.
We had a family Birthday for Jared on the 29th and a friend Birthday party on the 1st. Jared loved all his presents from Grandma's, Grandpa's, Aunts, and Uncles. He has already put things to use especially his Pocket knife from Aunt Allison and Uncle Tyler. (He passed off his Cub Scout knife skills the next day) Jared hasn't had a friend Birthday party since he was 3 so we thought it was about time. He wanted to go bowling with a few friends so we headed out for pizza and some duck bowling. I think everyone had a nice time.
Jared is such a super great kid. Everyone who knows him tells us he is so nice, respectful, and kind. At the moment he loves Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Legos. He enjoys riding his bike around the neighborhood by himself (YIKES!), reading, soccer, and school. We love him so much!
Our ward had a fun Halloween party on Saturday. There were games, food, and karaoke. Unfortunately our batteries died and ended up not getting one picture of everyone in their costumes. Audrey was a dinosaur, Jared was a wizard, and Anna was a rock star.
Not sure what to think of Karaoke.
"Candy! I want Candy!"
Getting off the hayride. My mom made this costume for me when I was a little girl and it has been passed down to the grandkids. Apparently I was terrified of the tail. Audrey loved it.
Halloween night we ended up staying in and having a little family party. We carved pumpkins, made candied apples (which are really gross by the way), watching Halloween shows, and playing games.
