While driving home from California on Sunday Brandon said to me, "Disneyland was it... the beginning of the end of the year."  He was right, the holidays are upon us and we are about to be a lot more busy.

Chandler has been begging to go to the pumpkin patch with the big toys since they put it up next to Walmart weeks ago.  We've been planning a trip, and then postponing it for quite sometime now.  Yesterday, I realized that we didn't have enough evenings before Wednesday for us to go to the patch with Dad and carve pumpkins with Dad.  So, I took the kids alone.

They rode on the train....

...and on the spinny ride..

....and they sat in the pumpkin patch...

 .... and Sterling didn't really understand the put your head in the hole and smile concept....

....and they held hands without me asking them to...

Friday, was Nevada day (there's no school) so Brandon took the day off work and we went to Disneyland.  It was perfect.  The weather was warm, but not too warm, the lines were short, and the park was decorated for Halloween.

The kids were fantastically behaved, and incredibly tired when we got home.

Best of all, Chandler was tall enough to go on all of the rides, and I didn't realize how many rides don't have height restrictions.  Sterling went on plenty of rides too!  Also best of all, Chandler got to meet Woody.

And we took silly pictures while waiting in line..

Soooooo fun!

An October Post

I looked at my blog and thought, "Am I going to go the entire month of October without posting?"

We have just been so busy!  Since I posted last, Chandler has been busy at school, Sterling is busy being two, Grandma and Grandpa Tate visited, we watched conference, Chandler won the "super citizen" award at school, I started working in activity days (so fun!), Brandon is very busy at work and got a raise (woo!), we're busy making Halloween costumes and gawfing over the fact that we are already almost done with October!

Coming up we have, my 26th birthday, a Disneyland trip, ward Halloween and Christmas parties, Brandon's mom and Eric are coming for a visit, Grandpa Dave is coming for a visit, a trip to Park City, Uncle Jared comes home from his mission, celebrating Christmas with my family in California, Halloween, and Thanksgiving too...somewhere in there I need to have our family pictures taken so I can send out Christmas cards...

It's the holidays.  The weather has cooled down and we are enjoying perfect sunny days and cool breezy nights.

And because a post without pictures is boring here are some pictures of us feed the geese at the park by our house.  It was a perfect day, but the geese were very aggressive.
