Carving Pumpkins

For Family Home Evening the Monday before Halloween, we carved pumpkins.  Instead of having a pumpkin for each child (perhaps a bit too many!) (pumpkins, NOT children:), we carved in teams:  Taylor and Xander, Graci, Cali and Sophi, Parker and Lexi, Dad and Jesi.  A fun evening, followed by powdered doughnuts!


Party Time!

Christi is a brave soul!  She scheduled birthday parties for Sophi and Cali on the same day.  Sophi from 3-5.  Cali from 6:30-10:00.  Both came off beautifully.  Sophi had a "P" party, with pajamas, princesses, pizza and all things "P."  Cali's was particularly fun.  Christi took 12 girls to the mall and sent them in two groups on a scavenger hunt.  They had to get physical items (a french fry you didn't pay for, earrings for Cali, etc.).  They also had to get several different things on video (a random person singing happy birthday in a different language, all the girls in the group eating dessert together, etc.)  They had a ball!  Here are some pics:
