Halloween Fun & An Eagle Scout

An angel (Daddy's Little Angel) and a devil (Mama's Little Devil) visited our house on Halloween!
Cade dressed up as Steve Young for this Halloween...maybe one of his last for trick or treating!?

Cade & Neil carved pumpkins on Thursday night after they performed in their Piano Recital. We forgot the camera for the piano recital, so we just have jack-o-lantern photos!

Halloween 2008!

Austin & Cade wait for Neil's Eagle Court of Honor to begin. It was held Sunday, October 26th.

Here Neil is giving his little Response talk. He had been sick for 2 days and we made him get out of bed and come to the Court of Honor. The next day we took him to the doctor and he had we kind of felt bad about it.

Big brother Todd presents his Eagle award to Neil while Mom & Dad watch. Thanks Nichole for taking all of the photos.

Here is Neil's little display table. Here are photos of his Eagle project. He and his troop helped to clear a trail in Springdale. On the table are all of the congratulation letters from prominent people. We also had a slide show that Brent put together for all 3 boys getting their Eagles. He worked long on it and he did a great job! It was a great evening.

Trip to Logan and West Jordan

We drove up to Logan October 3rd and attended the BYU vs. Utah State football game. It was a fun game and exciting. Troy & Amy wore their Aggie shirts and Neil & Cade wore their BYU shirts (all navy blue). Brent & I had neither so we just wore our royal blue Dixie High school shirts. Of course BYU won!!! (Don't be too sad Troy & Amy :) )

Saturday we drove up Logan canyon and then over to Bear Lake. It was raining and so we jumped out every so often to get some photos. The canyon really had some beautiful fall colors! We had a fun day!

Here is Cade showing me all of the gorgeous leaves than had fallen.

Brent, Neil, Troy, Amy & Cade on the shore of Bear Lake.

Neil, Kristine, Amy, Troy & Cade. We stopped to enjoy raspberry shakes & lunch at Le Beau's (in the background of this photo).

We stopped and Chad & Melinda's on Sunday morning and watched conference. It was fun to see all of Mikell's new tricks. She is is so cute! This is Mikell's cute little poodle costume for Halloween! I was glad to see it on her since we won't be able to see it on her in person on Halloween. She wasn't feeling well that day and so wasn't thrilled to show us her costume.

Chad & Melinda fed us a great lunch! Cade & Neil had fun playing with Mikell...even blowing bubbles outside after the rain cleared out. After our visit there we headed to Grandma & Grandpa Gardner's in Provo for a quick visit before hitting the road to head back to home. It was a great little get away weekend!!
