Happy Halloween! What could be cuter than a poodle, a puppy, a vampire, and a tiger? Not much! They had a wonderful time trick or treating - TJ with her friend, J. B with her friend, J, and the little girls with their daddy. I stayed home to hand out the goods - halloween pencils! It was a spooktacular halloween!

Black and orange day wouldn't be complete without some serious facepaint! My girls won the prize for the best dressed - tickets to the movies!

One of my new church assignments is to be the Bulletin Specialist. This is my second one this time around. I love doing this!

I made four of these orange leaf necklaces for our girls to wear to school on black and orange day! I also made them some bracelets, earrings, and flower barrettes to wear in their hair!

Our Stake trunk or treat! We brought a Fairy Queen, a Ballerina Princess Fairy, a Tiger, and a Vampire to join the fun.

After a suggestion from a friend at church, we took the kids to a local candy store for our Family Home Evening treat. WHOA!! This was the coolest candy store EVAH! We found candies we hadn't seen in years there! They carried candies from around the world, as well as some interesting treats like scorpions inside lollipops!

A very tranquil and lovely Sunday. The kids did well in their Primary presentation, and besides an unexpected head ache, it was a lovely Sabbath day!

Yay! We won this CD as a prize at our awesome Stake Anniversary Ball. I correctly answered the question "what month was our stake organized?" Um.... October? Hence, the anniversary ball? Boy, am I ever a smart cookie!

JJ's first family day at Pre-Kindergarten! She made her very own scrapbook page. Nice work, JJ!

Amazing what about 10 minutes can do to a dresser and a bunk bed? Why can't my kids figure this out?
Oct. 21, 2009
Took the plunge and upgraded from CS2 to CS4! I love the new features, the added control, but don't love the new learning curve!

Some very chic art work courtesy of a little artist called "Bayboo!". Fridge worthy, for sure!
Oct. 19, 2009
We put up a few autumn/halloween decorations for Family Home Evening. The kids' favorite by far is this little inflatable witch. It's better than candy!

We were invited over to our friend's home for some delicious dinner and good conversation! Sure love you guys! Thanks for taking such good care of us!

Date night! Off to see "G.I. Joe" and dinner at Tony Romas! Can't see a movie without some delish Milk Duds, either!

After babysitting some of our friend's children rather last minute, they surprised us with a gorgeous bouquet of a dozen roses. They were so fragrant and beautiful!

Doing our part to feed the hungry - dropping off a bag of non-perishables to the food bank!

What better to do with unwanted snow than to make it into a fun snowman - with no face? Well, it's a work in progress, and at least I can see my green grass again!
Oct. 12, 2009
So sad to see Mark and Christie go. The kids just love them and their girls. In fact, they wanted to go home with them! Sad to say good bye to welcome visitors, while the snow (the unwelcome guest) sticks around!

The sky light inside the Legislative building. We took the tour with Mark and Christie while they were here.

Oh happy day! The Halvorsons came to visit for Thanksgiving! We had such a blast visiting several spots around town, like this Hay Maze!
Oct. 9, 2009
More snow. Lovely. Why couldn't it wait another month or so? Such an unwelcome guest!
Oct. 8, 2009
Our first real snow fall since last winter! The crystals make me cringe. Winter is on it's way!
Oct. 7, 2009
Taking a walk to Wal-Mart. Wasn't too bad of a walk! Will probably do it again!

Good old Windex, makes my mirrors sparkle and the sun shine through my windows! I love you, Windex! (Is it a little weird to love a cleaning product?)

This is cheese. Gendered cheese. Just so you know - that is "boy" cheese on the left, and "girl" cheese on the right. JJ only likes "boy" cheese. You would think she would like girl cheese, seeing as she is a girl, but no. It all makes sense - we make GRILLED cheese sandwiches with the cheese slices and she thought we were saying "GIRL" cheese sandwiches!
JJ was sure pooped today. Hope she isn't coming down with something!
