Week of Halloween

To start off the week Naomi and I made some pumpkin decorations and a necklace which she used as a scary mask.
Oh and here are the decorations I made this year. I bought acrylic cube frames and made my own word blocks that I can change out the pictures and use them all year long.
Then Wednesday we went to Vertuccio Farms with our friends Karen and Caleb. They had barell train ride, bounce house, farm animals, hay maze, and more. Naomi and Caleb loved the hay maze, they kept running around in circles and loved choosing different paths to follow. Naomi loved the bounce house but didn't exactly enjoy being taken down by Caleb.

Wednesday after Cory got off work we left for Colorado for Cory's grandparents 75th wedding anniversary. We were planning on getting to Cory's dad's house by midnight but because of a major accident that had us backed up for over an hour and really slippery roads we stayed the night in a hotel and finished the drive Thursday morning. Naomi was so excited when we finally got to Papa Buzz's that the first thing she wanted to do was play in the snow. It was fun to see the snow, but it was so cold that I missed being in Arizona weather. I'm sad to say I didn't get any pictures at the anniversary party but as soon as I get the pictures other people took I'll post some. It was fun to see Cory's family (immediate and extended). Naomi had fun playing with cousin Zoey and especially loved her dog Jasmine.
Halloween day was fun. Our family dressed as the Flintstones. My costume I bought, but Cory's and Naomi's costumes I made, and for not being a seamtress they turned out really good. So we went to Bashas to do a little trick-or-treating with Caleb, Karen, and Brandon. Naomi got a pumpkin painted on her face. Then we went over to Aunt Sondra's to join them at their ward party. They had carnival games to win candy, they had dinner, and music. Then after we went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood with Cody, Jessie, Nicole, Gene, Caleb, Karen, Brandon, and Caleb. After ward we went and played games over at Brandon and Karen's. We had so much fun!

But jumping on Naomi was Caleb's favorite part of the bounce house!

The costumes turned out great! We were thinking about being the Flintstones this year, but thought it might be better next year when Danica's hair is a little longer. I love the cubes you made! Where did you get them? That's a funny way to decorate.
