Trunk -or-Treat

We had a blast at our ward Trunk-or-Treat party!

Can you guess who this lovely couple is???
Who is under this disguise??

My friend, Vicki, is an amazing artist. Check out the painting she whipped up for me last Christmas for Jason. This is one of my favorite photos of Jason's Dad holding Jason and Tasha. I LOVE this painting. Thanks Vicki!

We have had a great fall here in Oregon. The weather has been awesome. Beautiful sunny days that include crisp cold air and I have LOVED watching all the trees turn colors! Here are some photos of us enjoying fall in Oregon.

OOPS! This isn't outside enjoying the beautiful weather, but this is one of our favorite things to do since the weather has started to cool off this fall. Get a bunch of blankets and snuggle up to a movie at night. Don't Madison and Warwick look so cozy? Their bellies are happy, too, because we had just finished decorating Halloween cookies...oh, and eating them, too.
Look at the pretty fall colors! My favorite color isn't captured in this photo, though. I love the bright red/orange leaves. I gotta get a picture of some on here. So beautiful!

We LOVE all the yummy produce we get from Bobette's garden. Our favorite at the moment are these incredible apples! We had the BEST apple crisp last night with vanilla ice cream! We aren't the only ones that love these apples - rumor has it that people have been coming in the wee hours of the night to pick these delicious apples!

Brody and Warwick love to make apple stew from all the apples that have already fallen to the ground at Grandma's house. Don't these two look like trouble?

Brody and Warwick on the hunt for the perfect pumpkin to carve. These two boys are great little buddies...well, most of the time!

Oops, we lost one!

They found the last pumpkin.

I love this picture! Cute kids.

I saved the best picture for last. This is the new favorite fall activity for Brody and Warwick. Doesn't this look fun? They strip down, fill up the sandbox with water and have a party! The neighbors must really think we are a strange bunch!

Football Weekend

This post is way past due and doesn't have many photos, but it was definitely a highlight of our fall so far. We planned a weekend getaway to Utah to watch 2 football games (OSU vs. Utah and BYU vs. Utah State) and to see family. In true Bushnell style, the trip was totally put together at the last second, but trips like that always end up being the most fun, right? We loaded up the car with luggage, food and kids and headed for Utah at 10pm at night. I know, we were totally nuts to leave so late, but we were so excited for the weekend planned and it was the earliest we could sneak away and still get to the first game on time! OSU played an exciting game against Utah, but left us disappointed as they lost within the last few seconds of the game. BYU killed Utah State, though! Go BYU! We had a great time seeing Mark, Emily, Tasha, Carlos, Lori and Tanner. The kids LOVED seeing all their cousins...Rivers, Kelly, Tanner, Ryan, Connor, Dwight, Owen, Natalie and Emily. It was great to see everyone, next time we'll have to come for more than 2 1/2 days! I know, pretty lame that I don't have any photos of all the cousin fun, but I do have 2 photos from the weekend.

Here is the mass of people that we had to walk through to get to the OSU game. Look at all that red!
