Halloween '09

Here's our spooks!

The kids dressed up three different times this year. They had a costume parade at school, our ward Trunk-or-Treat and actual Halloween night. Let the candy trading begin!


Nathan picked up my camera one Sunday to snap a photo of Elliot. I see why. I can't believe my little man is about to turn 8!

Our Violinist

Gillian has recently taken up the violin to join her school orchestra and has already had her first performance. She's actually pretty good. I thought that when we got her the violin, that we would have to get everyone some earplugs as well to endure the squeaky noises that I was positive would come out of that instrument. Not the case. She's excited for her Christmas concert in December at the South Towne Expo. Go Gilly!

St. George Getaway

A few weeks ago, Nathan and I were lucky enough to get a break from the kids and go on a couples getaway in southern Utah. The Summerhays were kind enough to invite us and two other fun couples in our ward to stay in their family's vacation home in St. George. It was such a blast! While most of us would probably agree that we spent most of our time eating, we managed to sqeeze in a bunch of other worthwhile activities. The guys played a round of golf while the girls enjoyed a little shopping. We attended a play at the Tuachan, a beautiful outdoor theater nestled in the red rock. We checked out a really cool "narrow" and climbed around the rocks, and even fit in a session at the St. George Temple. It was really fun to spend time with some of the couples in our ward and get to know them better - although there are some things better left unknown! I know, right?

Thanks for the great weekend Greg and Andrea!
