Pumpkin Patch and Pumpkin Carving

Last weekend we did our annual visit to the Paragonah Pumpkin Patch. The pickins were slim and the weather was chilly but it didn't stop us from finding some great pumpkins!

The boys love going and finding just the right one

Last night Nick and Jos and their girls came for dinner and pumpkin carving.

Deer Hunt Weekend

This last Saturday was the opening day for the Deer Hunt. Cory didn't get a tag so he took Jaxon and went with his brothers Jordan and Jared. They went to Beaver and had great success! Both of them got deer that morning and Cory and Jaxon were able to be there for the fun.
Jordan told Jaxon it was tradtion to rub the deer blood under your eyes after you kill one. Thus the picture with my sister in law's little brother and Jaxon and Jordan.

Jaxon was so excited that Cory took him to go with the guys. He even took him to get the food and treats before.

Deer Camp. Cory's parents, Savannah, Emmett, her little brother and my nephew Quincy also went friday night too! The weather was so great for them.

Jordan and Jared with their bucks. Pretty cool! Me and the other two boys just hung out and watched movies. Fun Fun.

Fall Camping

This weekend we went to Holden Mountain to go camping with my family. Holden in just past Fillmore if your going North. It was so pretty with the fall leaves. Thats my dad and Brecken in front of our veiw from camp.

This is Pacen posing in the leaves.

There was the coolest trail that was right by our camp and we rode 4 -wheelers on (thank you Jordan for the use of yours). It went way high and the views were amazing! There were several places you had to drive through a shollow creek that the kids loved.

Cory and Pacen on the 4 -wheeler. The path was covered in fall leaves, it was like a painting.

The weather was great and we sat around the fire listening to conference.

Yummy Cookie Recipe

Joslyn wanted this recipe so I thought I'd share it on my Blog
Chewy Oatmeal Cookies
Beverly Allred
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes
1/2 cup butter shortening
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 tsp. soda
1/4 cup boiling water
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups flour
1 1/2 quick cooking oats
1 cup chocolate chips
Combine shortening and sugar together and beat until mixed. Add vanilla and eggs, beat until light in color. Dissolve soda in water and add, add salt, flour and oats a little at a time and mix well. Add chips and stir.
Place on cookie sheet (I like to use parchment paper) and bake. Let cool a little before taking on the baking sheet.
