Happy Halloween!!!!

Andrew and I got all dressed up so that we could go to a Halloween party thrown by a member of our ward. We started putting our costumes together at 5:00, Andrew did such a good job on the homemade swords. Andrew told me the party started at 8:00, then at 7:30 he checked the invitation and found that the party actually went from 6:00-8:00 oops. We had time to get our picture taken and get a goody bag, we also got to watch other ward members play games. A good night overall. I did have fun giving out candy to the little kiddies, well til I fell asleep while Andrew was making the swords and he was left with the task. Hope everyone else had a fun holiday!!!

Happy Birthday to Me!!!!!

Andrew worked so hard to make my birthday wonderful!!! He got up and made me french toast for breakfast, he played games with me then took me to Roberts so we could browse the Christmas decorations. We went to the homecoming game and SUU even won!! Andrew bought me pizza and invited friends over so we could play games and eat the yummy brownies, then we went down to the Snow Canyon caves to play! Thanks for making my day so wonderful, I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful husband and such great friends and family who showered me with birthday wishes in the form of phone calls, text messages and emails. Thank you!!!!

This is the brownie treat that Andrew stayed up until four in the morning making for me. I like brownies more than cake so he made me birthday brownies instead of a cake. He did such an amazing job!!

Pumpkin Carving!!

Question: Am I the only person that has to spend 20 minutes messing with the pictures to get a post to look decent?? Seriously, I always think I've got blogspot figured out but no, I have to fight with it every time. Wouldn't you think that clicking on "align right" would mean the pictures would actually align on the right? Anyway onto the post.

We're getting ready for Halloween!!!

The this last Saturday was the only chance Andrew and I would have to carve pumpkins before Halloween so we did, even though I do realize that by the time Halloween comes they will be all shriveled and distorted (Carving book says you can soak a jack-o-lantern in water and it will un-shrivel).

Brennan and Emma came to carve with us, and we finished the night by watching Coraline, which totally creeped me out.

Andrew's is farthest left, then Brennan's, then Emma's, and mine is the one with the pathetic candle in it. I never remember to buy candles for the pumpkins so we had to light them with decorative candles left over from a wedding, there were only three of those though, so my pumpkin was lit with a scented candle that had a very small wick. My pumpkin did smell the best though, cinnamon!!

Hey this is Andrew, I found this video on and it really caught my attention. It is a reminder of our responsibility to help protect religious freedom.

Coming up for air

Have you ever experienced that euphoric feeling when you finally completed a huge task?? In this case the huge task is the 25 page research paper that I just grabbed off the printer and will turn in today. Ever have that wonderful feeling? Then have you had that sinking feeling of remembering all the stuff you are now behind on because you have devoted so much time to that huge task? I have two papers, a test and a book panal and another book presentation to prepare for all in the next six days, plus a 300 page (boring) book to read. If you have never experienced these feelings, you can not relate to how I am feeling right now. I seriously need a break.
