Halloween was a huge success... fun all around!  Friday night I got us a jack-o-lantern pizza from Papa Murphy's.  It was really cute and you can't beat Papa Murphy's pizza!!!

Mallory and the pizza before we cooked it

MMMMmmmmm!!! SOOOoooo good!!!

Saturday was Halloween, but it was also my daddy's birthday, so we combined the two into one big celebration.  Mallory dressed up as Cinderella this year and Jack was a pumpkin.

me, Jack, and Mallory


We went to The Jalepeno Tree for dinner and then headed to the mall to trick-or-treat.

Jack decided to walk tonight!!!  He still prefers to hold your hand, but he definitely took off tonight!  YEA JACK!!!!

Tonight we Gentry Girls got together at my house for a FUN time!!!  We had a make and take night!!!!  Each girl brought the ingredients to one of my mom's holiday candy recipes.  My mom surprised us with matching monogrammed aprons, red recipe books to hold our Christmas recipes, and precious Christmas recipe cards to put those favorites on!!!

Our favorite activity at the farm.... the barrel cars!!!  Here is Mallory in the purple Barbie car with Kristin and Micah behind her in the A&M car.

Jack and I rode in the Thomas the Train car.  We were the first car behind the tractor that was pulling us.  Jack loved it!!!!

Chad even squeezed himself into the school bus car so Grant could ride, too!

There we go!!!!!

Jack in front of the measuring stick.... looks like about 2 1/2 feet to me!

Mallory getting measured this year....  a little bit over 3 1/2 feet!

Me and my sweeties!  Jack wasn't really in the mood to stand still.  :-)
