Want This!!

I have wanted a picture of the San Diego Temple for forever, well since we've  been married (which seems like forever-JK).  This website always has the cutest pictures, and I want one!!  What do you think?

This is Halloween, This is Halloween!

We had quite the Halloween this year.  It was filled with lots of parties and lots of fun.  Nana and Pop Pop came from Las Vegas to help us celebrate.  Here's to another successful Halloween!
 This is how Ty greeted Nana.  When he woke up from his nap he ran right to her and loved her (with his eyes closed in pure bliss) for at least 5 mins.  This is a record breaker for Ty, if anyone doesn't know his true colors.
 These are the bean bags I barely finished for a Halloween party we went to.  Can you tell that (from the left) there is a ghost, candy corn, witch hat and bat?  Yeah, I didn't think so.  I tried my best :)
I didn't get to take any pictures from the party.  The kids had fun, though! There were a ton of booths of games for them to play.  They also loved just playing on the playground.  It's always fun getting to know our new ward members better.
 The dalmation costume was way too hot to wear to the party in the park, so we put him in this.  Isn't he too cute?!
 One of my friends is a balloon artist!  Who knew, right?!  Well, this is a parrot on his shoulder.  He was sooo proud of it.
 Carving pumpkins (I ABHOR it!).  Cole made a Green Goblin.
 Logan did a Star Trek symbol.
 Here they are on their way to trick-or-treat!!
They ended up just going up and down our street.  Even though they didn't go very far they still had a ton of candy.  I can't imagine if they had gone all around Ventana Ranch!!  It's a good thing, though, because now mommy won't be eating all the good stuff :)

McCall's Pumpkin Patch

We heard about this great pumpkin patch about 45 minutes away from ABQ, so we thought we'd take a family trip and see what all the talk was about.  It was totally worth it!  We all had a lot of fun and can't wait to go back next year :)
 Cole thought he was so cool riding in the big cow.  They took a little tour around the barn and back. It was so cute to see him in there!
 On the hay ride out to the pumpkin patch.  It was freezing!!  Don't all my boys look just a little bit crazy in this picture?!
 Look at all those pumpkins!
 You want to know the sad part?  It was going to be a 20 min. wait once we were at the patch to get on the next hay ride.  Since we already had like 5 pumpkins at home we decided to just stay on our hay and ride it back!!
 The corn maze which mommy had to guide them out of.  It actually was really hard.  I can't imagine how we'd have ever found these 2 cuties had we let them go in on their own.
 Once again, Cole's favorite, the duck races.  See his serious face?
 I swear to you they had the best fudge ever!!  Thankfully I only bought 2 squares instead of the money-saving 6 Alain wanted me to buy :)
 Here's my animals!!
 Cole could not get the hang of this!  He was either running into the tires or the grass.  It was quite hilarious to watch!!
 Logan, on the other hand, did very well.  (Thank goodness!  If not, I'd be a little bit worried.)
 There was the coolest jumping contraption.  It was level with the ground and air was pumped up from underneath to give it a round top.  Then they just bounced and bounced.
 This was the farthest I could get Ty to go.
It was freaking cold!! But I'd rather have cold than hot, for sure.  By the time we left it was actually really nice.

Here's to next year :)
