So we joined FHE with the Bastians and carved us some pumpkins Dave was of course being creative again with pumpkins(couple of yrs ago he did Master Chief) and decided he'd help Payter do an Autobots signPayton was very impressed with it and happy-- we also learned that Trish does not like Halloween or carving Pumpkins-- it was quite funny to watch actually :)I attempted to carve more of a princess pumpkin for Bryn but let's just say my artistic abilities just don't lie in carving pumpkins.It was a fun night especially taking pictures of the Done pumpkins-- Dave took this awesome one with the kids running around with glow sticks in the background. Can't wait for Halloween to be here now.

So there's a small duck pond that we never knew about right in the middle of the city-- I've been meaning to go and take some pictures of Payton so we went there and had about 5min. of great lighting before the sun went behind the mountains.
Problem was I could not get Payton to do his normal smile-- *sigh so we'll have to try again later
I do love this one of Payton though that is his smile but it needed to be portrait oriented to work bummer.
of course payton could whip out a whole bunch of other faces for me-- such a little funny
I love General Conference-- being together as a family and getting to hear the prophet is the best! One of our family traditions is to build a tent and face it towards the temple the night before conference.
Than we read the story of King Benjamin to our kids to explain why we do this crazyness :)
Payton & Brynley were big helpers in building the tent and mommy was glad that we weren't going to camp outside.
Even Tiki joined in on sleeping downstairs with us--(I'll admit I slacked and went to bed in our bed later cuz' I wasn't feeling to great)
During Conference Dave decided to look through his mission box and I had the kids coloring some quiet folder pictures for sunday. Overall it was way fun and releaxing-- we just hooked my laptop up to the big tv and streamed conference. Can't wait till the next one.
