Trick or Treat!

We had an AWESOME Halloween this year.  A few photos of our fun . . .

The kids painted pumpkins:
All dressed up for the Lehi city Halloween Party:
Ethan as our little sheriff . . .
Olivia as Little Red Riding Hood . . .
And Joshua as Anakin Skywalker . . .
(As a side note, I mentioned to Joshua that maybe he could be something different next year.  Like NOT a Star Wars character.  He gave me the most confused look and said, "Why would I ever do that?")

The kids checking out their candy stash:
Happy Halloween everybody! We hope you had a good one!!

One Dollar

Five weeks ago, the kids and I struck a deal.  It was the best deal I've ever made.  Joshua and Livi agreed to keep their rooms clean (Which entails making their beds before school, keeping their clothes and toys cleaned up all day, and then vacuuming and dusting before bed each night).  In exchange for their hard work?  One dollar a week . . . I kid you not.  I have not cleaned my kids rooms in FIVE WEEKS!  If only I had thought to start this sooner.  All those wasted hours picking up legos and itty bitty polly pocket shoes . . . Ah the freedom!
