Halloween was great this year. For Gwen it was her first. Here she is the cutest Ladybug in the world. We all dressed up for our ward's Trunk or Treat. Brandon as Elvis, Nathan a hippie, Damon a clown, Stuart the cowardly lion, and me as Dorothy. Thanks Sarah for loaning us the costumes. Yes, we took Gwen trick or treating with some neighbor friends and she got all of three candies. Too young but I wanted to have the experience. It was fun!

Paulette and I took Gwen to the pumpkin patch to get some pictures. The first time we visited a pumpkin patch she was afraid of the pumpkins and would not go near them. So for a few days I would have her get closer and closer to one that we had at home until she was finally pounding on it. She even points to it in passing because she wants to touch it. Today she loved getting down on the hay covered ground in bare feet to pound on the pumpkins like a drum. We had a great time watching her ooohh and aaawe at them. What a doll!!!

Brandon and Damon are on the same team again this year with Stuart coaching. They are awesome this year and are surely heading to playoffs. Nathan is also doing really well this season. He scores at least one goal in almost every game! Then there is Gwen,...their number one supporter. She goes to every game even if it is raining! We love soccer season. I love watching the boys make progress in their game and skills on the field.
