Pumpkin Carving and The Haunted Mill

For FHE this Monday we decided to get into the Halloween spirit and carve some pumpkins. Trevor is way better at carving than I am. He told me that it was only because he had 9 years and 3 months of more practice ;) Now, no one laugh at my pumpkin. It didn't turn out like I wanted. 

This is going to make a yummy snack!

 Our finished work

Trevor carved this in the back of his pumpkin. Isn't he wonderful?!

About two weeks ago, we went with Mike and Shannon's family to the Haunted Mill for FHE. It was really fun. Lincoln and Shannon didn't go through unfortunately. It wasn't too bad, but there were definitely some really scary parts. We had to go in two groups so it was Trevor, Laura, and I in our group. I was the only one that was screaming my head off. Luckily, there was no camel there to sneeze in my ear :) After the mill we went to G's Dairy and got some delicious ice cream.

Aren't we a great looking bunch :)

Homemade Lasagna/ Straw Maze

On Friday, Trevor and I had a double date with our neighbors, Camille and Zach. Camille is on one of Education classes and Trevor helps them out in Primary. Camille and I both love Italian food so we thought it would be fun to have an Italian Dinner Date. I made homemade lasagna and she made her amazing homemade breadsticks. I had tried making lasagna before, but I didn't put enough sauce in it and it turned out dry. This time though, it turned out SO GOOD! I was worried the whole time it was cooking until I took a bite.
Me, just about to put the lasagna in the oven. 
The final product! Don' t you wish you could have some?

After dinner, we decided to play some game, Bananagrams and the Dice Game, as we waited for it to get dark so that we could go to the Straw Maze. Once it was dark enough, we headed to the maze. When we got there, there was a giant camel there! It was so random. Trevor wanted to get a picture with it, so we went over there. I stood next to the camel, who kept sniffing my hair and face and on the other side of me was a creepy masked guy whispering things like, "Remember to smile big". "Don't forget to smile". Just as Zach was about to take the picture, the camel sneezed in my ear!!! It was so gross! Trevor was laughing his head off. There was snort all over my hear and inside my ear. The place didn't have any napkins, so the creepy guy lent me his sleeve to wipe it off. It was very nice of him. After all that, went went inside the maze and had a great time. It took us a little over a hour and a half to get through. We didn't know it was going to be a haunted maze, but it made it a lot of fun. The chainsaw man was the scariest part. It was a super fun night!

A creepy clown that stood at the entrance of the maze.

Our Kids

Trevor has a 50 gallon fish tank that he got a while go. We have 8 beautiful fish, 2 funny crabs, and 1 cool lobster. We call them all our kids. Whenever we head off to school we say, "Good-bye kids, be good. Or when we get home we say, "Hello kids. How was your guys day?" :)
We thought everyone would like to see what our kids look like.
