More Carving

Alex working on his pumpkin, we heard a great idea to put your "beater" on the end of your drill and it helps to get the goop out. It worked really well. I had to have a pic of Jeff and I to show that I was actually there. Our finished products.

Carving Time!

Since we were carving pumpkins tonight I thought for dinner we would have mummies and bones for dinner. Kids carving pumpkins.

Trunk or Treat!

We have "Annie", "baby", Alex with "Annie" and "Darth Vader". The kids enjoyed trunk or treating Sat. night

Okay, so Laura tagged me. 7 interesting or weird things about me!

1. I used to take tap, jazz, and ballet from the time I was 3 until I graduated high school.

2. I am in the primary presidency. I never saw that coming.

3. Jeff and I met on a blind date. He was the third Jeff I had dated in a row. He was the lucky one! Right! ha ha

4. I am the youngest of 4 daughters.

5. The first time I ever shot a hand gun was on my first visit to Jeff's mom and dad's house in Alpine, WY. It was pretty neat, but it kinda threw me back. Not as easy as it looks on tv.

6. I wanted to have my kids abcd: ex. Alex, Brooke, Casen and "D" name for the last child. Jeff thought the name "Casen" sounded like a car part, so it ended with Brooke. Oh well!

7. I got my first kiss when I was 13. Cute boy from church.

Okay so now I tag: Shondra, Elizabeth R., my cousin Bonnie, my sis-in-law(Polly),Kasey, Jen Schaefer,LeAnn Austin.

A trade for the Pappy!!

No more pappies! We took are pappies to Wal-Mart and "traded" them in for this doll and stroller. We had a few rough nights but we are doing much better each day. That was a hard addiction.

Corn Maize

Here is the corn maize. You had to answer questions about Georgia in able to make it through the maize.

The Rock Ranch

So every year I say I want to go to a farm for Halloween season and we never go. So this year we finally went. We had a good time. We enjoyed the corn maize. The kids had a good time.

Cookie time

We baked some halloween cookies. The kids loved cutting them out and frosting them. It was a new recipe and it was okay. We will stick with the family favorite.

"Come what may and love it"

When you don't think General Conference could get any better it does. I have been listening to Saturday's session. I thoroughly enjoyed Joseph B. Wirthlin. He talked on despair, adversity and how to deal with it. One thing that touched me the most was to "laugh". I find myself getting upset at drivers and dumb things - he said laugh. He gave great examples of times when his family could have been very upset but instead they laughed. His mother always said to him during times of adversity "Come what may and love it". Wow! He is a great speaker.

"Live For Today"

I always look forward to listening to President Monson speak. He said, "Live for today". Sometimes I find myself looking too far ahead and forget what is happening today. I need to cherish what my children are doing now because before to long, they are gone and don't need me anymore. One example, is Hunter. Everynight I am to tuck him in bed. Sometimes, I do this grudgingly because I too may already be in bed, or I have already been up the stairs a ton of times and don't want to go up again. But, I go. I need to cherish this time because, one day, Hunter isn't going to want me to tuck him in. So today I am challenging myself and the rest of you to "Live for Today" and be grateful for what we have now.
