Grandma Great's Birthday Party

On Saturday the Brown clan headed to Ogden to celebrate Grandma Great's Birthday. She truly is an incredible woman and someday I hope I can be like her in so many ways! We went to the Sizzler, which was nothing to write home about) and ate some yummy birthday cake from Costco. All in all a great day! She had been wanting some vinyl lettering for one of her rooms and came up with the quote "The best journey always takes us home." I loved how it turned out, it looked great on the wall! I think I will make one for my house!
Ty and my Mom made a hut behind the train table and Ty was convinced that it was the perfect sleeping spot for both him and grandma. Keep in mind the hut was not even big enough for Ty to sleep in. Grandma is so great to appease him to at least pretend they were going to sleep there. With a little convincing Ty settled for Grandma sleeping in his bed instead.
The next day Ty had his primary program so my parents stayed the night to come to that on Sunday. He did great despite the cold he was having, he was not in much of a performing mood!

Halloween 2009

Halloween started off great with a visit from Grandpa and Grandma Brown. Always a great start to any day! Then we continued on to our tradition of going to the Lamb's ward Halloween Carnival and Trunk or Treat. Ty loves it. They have good food, fun games, and company! Ty was so indecisive this year about what to be. He kept switching back and forth from Batman and Darth Vader. The result: Batman on the inside combined with a Darth Vader mask and cape on the outside! It was great! Wendy had some really cute matching cat costumes that we put Macy and Millie in, they also looked very cute! Macy loved being in the costume, she cried and cried when it was time to take it off. I think she made the connection that the cute cat costume got her some great candy from anyone she came in contact with!
Notice the awesome pumpkins carved by John that he does every year. The one with all the holes drilled in it has always been a personal favorite, along with the unique costumes he comes up with every year!
