Halloween was kind of rushed this year because it was on Sunday. We didn't get home from church until about 5:45. After a quick dinner the girls threw on their costumes and headed out for some trick or treating. This year Hannah was an 80's punk princess, Lizzie was a Snow Queen, Kerrie and Susanna were both ladybugs and Paige was a jockey on a horse. Kiley did not dress up. She still looks pretty from church.
Hannah posing with the jack-o-lantern she designed.
Happy Halloween!!!


The day before Halloween the girls and Dad got busy carving jack-o-lanterns.
Dad is the carver and the girls are the designers
and gut cleaners.
The giant jack-o-lantern in the back is part of a beanbag game from my preschool's Dad's Day.

A week or so before Halloween we went on our annual trip to the pumpkin patch.
The weather was beautiful. Many years we have about frozen. This time it was warm and sunny.
Kiley and Kerrie searching for the perfect pumpkin.

We love our family traditions.

Sunday Evening in the Park

Every Fall we go for a family walk in Kathryn Albertson Park with all the Dildines.
We had such a beautiful Fall that it still looked pretty summery, even in early October.
It is so much fun to take pictures of my beautiful daughters.

Fall Activities

The start of the new school year brought back our busy activity schedule.
All six girls are in dance classes, including this little sassafras. Kiley is also on the high school dance team.
Lizzie is on the team at gymnastics this year.
Lizzie is also playing soccer. This girl likes to stay busy.
The four oldest girls are also taking piano. This should keep us on the run for a while.

Lizzie was baptized the first Saturday in September.
A girl in our ward did these pretty braids for her.

Eight is Great

Lizzie's birthday was August 30. It was also the first day of school.
The Saturday before her birthday we went to see Ramona and Beezus and ate lunch at Red Robin. There is nothing wrong with Lizzie's arm in this picture. She is wearing the ace bandage that is the most popular toy in our house.
Sassy birthday girl heading off to the first day of school.
Yummy McDonald's lunch brought to school by mom and ...
cute little sisters.
We took Jr. Fat Boys into Lizzie's classroom for her to share with all her new classmates. Her teacher puts the birthday kid's treat on this cute singing cake plate.
Opening gifts after school. This mermaid Barbie was what she most wanted for her birthday.
Happy Birthday Lizzie. We love you sweet girl.
