Fall Frights and Family

I can't believe that Autumn has come and gone. School has been rather hectic and finals are just around the corner, but I wanted to get this post up to show everyone what our little family has been up to. School is going well for both John and me. Another week and a half and we'll have three glorious weeks off. More on our plans in upcoming posts.

Nao acredito que o outono ja passou. A faculdade esta' indo bem. Vamos ter feriadas em uma semana e meia! So' queria fazer um 'post' da novidades de nossa familia pequena. Vou blog mais depois dos aulas terminar.

So these are the things we've been up to for the past month and a half:

We had a Brazilian Sunday dinner with some of our best friends up in Salt Lake. They are expecting their first baby in March!

Nos comemos um almoco brasiliero com nossas amigos la in Salt Lake. Eles vao ter o primeiro bebe em Marco!

We decorated Sammy's room. It looks so cute now--no more plain white walls!

Nos decoramos o quarto de Samantha. 'E muito legal agora. Nao tem mais so' predes brancos. 

Samantha watched me throw away a tub of Cool Whip. Two minutes later, I came back into the room to find this:

Samantha viu quando que jogou Cool Whip ('e um cobertura para doces) no lixo. Dois minutos depois, eu vi isto.  

We went to Cornbelly's with some amazing friends. They had hay rides, corn mazes, food, and all kinds of activities for the kids. We had a blast as you can see below.

Fomos para um actividade para o outono. Tinha muitas actividades para as criancas. Divertimos muito!

For Halloween, we carved pumpkins. Sammy didn't like the pumpkin guts too much this year. The video below shows her helping us, dancing to Ghostbusters, and hugging her daddy!

Nos esculpimos aboboras. Samantha nao gostou muito da interior da abobora. O video mostra Samantha nos ajudando, dancando e dando abracos ao pai.

Here's our homemade Halloween costumes! This was the first year that I attempted to make our costumes. John and I were Ghostbusters and Sammy was the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Nosso roupa para O Dia das Bruxas! Esse ano foi a primeira vez que eu tentei a fazer a roupa. Acho que foi bom. Fomos careteres do filme Os Caca-Fantasmas.

Who ya gonna call?

I'll catch you, Stay Puft!
For Thanksgiving, John's mom and sister flew out. Lauren is a senior in high school and so they were checking out different colleges. It was a lot of fun having them here. We went up to see the lights on Temple Square, which was beautiful!

No Dia de Gratidao, a mae e irma de John foi para ca. Lauren, a irma, vai terminar a 2 grau e ela estava vendo os faculdades aqui. Foi muito divertido a ter elas aqui. Fomos para O Temple Square para ver os luzes de Natal. Foi lindo de mais!

John and I also went shopping at 12AM on Black Friday. We weren't really expecting to buy anything, but it was fun to get out of the house and spend some time together. We were sleepy!

John e eu foi comprando no meia noite no "sexta-feira preta" ('e um dia que pode comprar as coisas bem barrato). Nos nao queremos comprar muita coisa, mas foi bom a sair de casa juntos. Fomos cansados depois!

All in all, it has been a great couple of weeks. Stay tuned for a few more posts in the near future on our 3rd anniversary and our holiday break plans!

Entao, esses semanas passadas foram muito boas. Vou escrever mais sobre nossos planos para o Natal e tambem nosso terceiro aniversario de casamento!
