One of the traditions in my family is on conference weekend the girls get together and have a girls night with the kids while the men go to priesthood!! October is the Pumpkin Patch! We usually meet early afternoon and go to the Big Red Barn in Santaquin to the pumpkin patch!! This year of course it was raining again so that didn't happen! (we will try again next year!) The kids were sad but Aunt Keli came to the rescue with the idea of making their own little pizzas and decorating cookies!! It was a hit! No wonder she is the favorite!! I don't think the kids even remembered that they didn't get to go to the pumpkin patch! My family has grown so much that we had to have a girls and boys turn at the table to decorate cookies!! They were so excited!! Tyler I think put all the chocolate chips on his three cookies!! Brynlee was the cutest sitting at the table with the big girls! After the pizza and cookie mess was cleaned up the kids played in Becky's toy room and Mason entertained the adults by singing primary songs!! Man, he is so so cute!! And of course the girls LOVE to take pictures with my camera!! Ha Ha!! After a night of laughing, playing and just having a BLAST we were so tired! But that didn't stop us girls from going to La Casita when the boys got back!! Yummy!! This is one tradition that has become a favorite!! I can't wait for next year!! Hopefully we will get to go to the pumpkin patch too!!
