Snow Day!

This morning we woke up to a white world. Ayden jumped into bed with us and immediately started begging to go outside. So Ayden and I bundled up and went outside to play. We made a “snow tree” and made snow angels. After we were done playing, we came inside for hot cocoa with marshmallows.

Give me your candy, or walk the plank!

Ayden was a pirate for Halloween. For over a month before Halloween, Jared would have Ayden practice his pirate lines: “Give me your candy or walk the plank!” Ayden got very into it, and he would say his lines in a deep gravelly voice. To go along with Ayden’s costume, I carved pirate themed pumpkins this year! I meant to do 4 of them, but for Halloween we went trick-or-treating with some friends in Ogden, and so I didn’t have time to do the other 2. When we went trick-or-treating, Ayden only gave his lines twice because soon it was all about getting to the next house to gather more candy! He really got into it this year, and soon his pail was so heavy he kept tripping over it and I ended up having to carry it for him.

It's Autumn time!

A couple of nights ago, Jared and Ayden went outside to rake up all of the leaves while I cooked dinner. Ayden didn’t like it when Jared got out the blower, and he kept running and screaming as Jared would blow the leaves. But Ayden had a blast jumping into the piles!
