Enjoying Fall

We are enjoying Fall.  On Friday we carved one of the pumpkins we had brought home from the pumpkin patch.  Well, I carved it anyway.  If you saw the video I posted on Facebook then you know how well it went when I told the boys to clean out the pumpkin guts.  Vance was the only one to actually get a few seeds and he did it delicately.  There have been many years that he has acted just like the other two did.  "YUCK!"  I blame Stephen because he thinks the whole carving pumpkin process is yuck too.  One reason we paint our pumpkins, not to mention way easier for the kids.
 We took the boys to the Bountiful temple grounds on Saturday.  It was very busy with weddings and people attending sessions, but it is a lovely temple and grounds are still enjoyable to walk around despite the busy-ness.  Porter looks like he thinks he owns this world in this picture.  Makes me laugh.
 Porter "reading" to me.  He doesn't like to be left out so he will pull out some of his favorite books, grabbed the timer (his older brothers have to read between 10-15 minutes) and goes to town.  He has the Mo Willems books pretty well memorized so it's pretty entertaining to hear what he remembers as he "reads".
 Tanner coloring a Scarecrow book he made for preschool.  Sometimes this is as exciting as life gets.  :)
