2011 Fall Break

We had a great break. It is really nice to have some time in the fall to get stuff done. I did end up sick 5 of the days, but the boys were so good and let me rest. It sure is different having older kids while you are sick. :) 

One of the fun things we did, which will probably become a tradition, was I took the boys each out to lunch on an individual basic. This was really nice to have one-on-one time with each of them. They each got to pick their place to eat and then they got to join me for my errand run that day. Each of our boys are so unique and amazing! I enjoyed all of the lunches very much. 

We also went to a Pumpkin Patch. This has become a tradition for Fall Break too. The boys love walking through the fields and picking their own pumpkins. It is fun to see them hunt for the perfect one.
 I also love getting pictures. The boys get tired of my taking so many!
 2 cute pumpkins!
We also attended our ward's Chili Cook-off and Trunk or Treat. This was fun and the boys loved dressing up. We had fun getting their costumes ready.
 My one goal for the break was to get the boy's rooms cleaned out. It was a major job, but it got done. Yahoo!

Now back to school for 3 weeks and then we have Thanksgiving Break!

What a great idea to take them all out individually! Glad you had a good break. I sure miss you.
