My Pilgrim Maddie

 I can't believe I haven't posted since Halloween.  Time flies this time of year! Here is Maddie at her Kindergarten feast.
 She has a new best friend this year, Avery.  Luckily she also one o four neighbors so they get to have a lot of playing time.  They were not into their pilgrim hats but put them on so I could take one picture.
 She is such a nut!  I love it!
 Somehow, their assigned spots on the Kiva are right next to each other.  Here is a little glimpse into their lives.  Such cuties!

What a Great Halloween!

 We love Halloween around these parts and here is a snapshot of our day. Jackson and two buddies in the Halloween parade at school.
 Maddie during her class party.

 Maddie under her "mini-me" paper doll dressed up in the same costume.
 Maddie and Ellie trying to talk me into letting them go t-o-t at 5pm.

 Jackson as Cpt. America
 Jacee as a flapper - made by Grama Binki - thank you!!!

 Jackson just waiting to go.

 Each in character.
 Maddie as Frankenstein.
 Jacee and Kenzee heading out.
 The Trick-or-Treating gang.

 Jackson after about 45 min of trick-or-treating.s  He was done.  He ate a few pieces of candy and then gave the rest to Maddie.  He certainly didn't get my sweet tooth!

It was so warm this year - a record high for Utah.  We loved it - no coats.  We sent the kids by themselves with a cell phone.  It was so fun to be with John handing out scones.  We handed out 250 scones.  It is such a fun tradition.  But - it is so crazy that I never get any pictures.  We love this neighborhood with such great people.  We love that it is a bit like how we grew up - feeling safe letting the kids just go for it.
Here is the house this morning.  I already have all the Halloween stuff down, now to box it up!  I leave the fall stuff up but it still seems empty.  Can't wait to decorate for Christmas!!!
