It has been a nice autumn. We were able to take a trip down to St. George during October for UEA weekend. Ashley held a big family party where the kids got to carve pumpkins. Always a favorite, and ours lasted the drive back home. Halloween wasn't nearly as overwhelming as other years, candy-wise. I got the idea to have the kids sell me their candy to get money to buy a movie - they agreed! Of course I let them eat as much as they wanted when they first received it, but then I got the rest! It was wonderful, and they loved giving their money to the clerk to buy Madagascar 3.
