{trick or.... treat?}

Today my mom and dad came out to the house to visit. We went with my sister Jen, her husband Ron, and their daughter Emma to go trick-or-treating down Main Street here in Tooele.

{lasts and firsts...}

Today was Andrew's last day of school at Rosamond Elementary. He loved his teacher Mrs. Rizer, and made a lot of good friends in his class. He will miss it, but is excited to move and start a new kindergarten class. His class had a Halloween party today, he has been talking about this party for weeks!! What a great way to end a great experience. We are so proud of this boy. :)

and one with the mustache.
our best attempt of the three of us :)
the first time putting on her costume she didn't really like it...

After Andrew was done with school or the day we headed to Salt Lake to visit Kevin at work. They had trick-or-treating for the employees kids. Both Carrie and Andrew had a blast. In the end Carrie ended up with at least twice as much candy because at each desk she would grab a handful. TOO CUTE!! It was fun to meet some of the people Kevin works with in such a relaxed environment.

loading up on some goodies...
can you tell she is pleased with herself??

This was also a very big and exciting day for the Carpenter family. This was the day we officially moved in and starting living in our new home in Tooele. We love our new home. What a huge blessing!!!!

{good time...}

My Dad has been taking a college computer class. Tonight is one of our last nights for us to live in my parents' home, so he decided to skip out of his class and spend the time with Andrew and Carrie. He showed up with two large pumpkins to carve and apple cider. The kids had a fun time designing the faces to carve and be involved. They were very proud of the results. I am so thankful to have a mom and dad that love me, would do anything for me, and also love my little family. They have been so good to us while we have been in their home. They have also helped in SO many ways to get us into our home. We love and appreciate them so much!!

...whatever Andrew does, Carrie does...

...these kids sure love their Grandpa Allen...

...and their Grandma Allen...

...just a little silliness...

...beautiful Carrie...

...cheeeesy Andrew...

{the boss...}

A conversation I overheard today...

Carrie (to Andrew): "thank you Mom"

Andrew: "I am not Mom, I am ANDREW!!.. 
and I am bigger than you,
 so that means I am the BOSS! 
Mom and Dad are bigger than me, 
so they are the boss of me."

I am glad he realizes that.... now if only he would really listen when I talk to him!!
