I know it is a week early, but the ward held our Trunk-or-Treat tonight, and after how much work went into these costumes it is a good thing we might get to use them more than once this holiday season.

Benson was very robotic. It was a struggle to get the box on but once it was there he resigned to the fact that his mom is CRAZY and will go to all lengths for a party. The robot had an awesome box-head but he absolutely wouldn't go for that.....compromise.

Wouldn't you know, AJ and I joined in the fun. As we were driving there I was thinking, " I cannot believe I am doing this." Even some of my best friends didn't recognize me at first glance. I thought the red hair would give it away, but. AJ was supposed to be a sweet, slobbery puppy dog but ended up looking like a K9 version of Kiss... oops. We had fun.

And Little Miss Rodeo is dedicated to you mom. Wish you were here.Yes the boots may be a size big. But I know you'll agree they make the outfit. She was so sweet and such a good sport, just like always.

A Birthday for B

This is his cake. I really wanted to expand my creativity and MAKE my first fancy cake. But I had a crazy week and didn't get around to it. It was a mistake to put a dirtbike on the cake too... that's all he wanted for the rest of the party. He didn't have cake, he didn't get excited about any other presents, he just wanted to drive around both of his new bikes.
Although we did have some good friends over and were thankful for that, we were sad. It is so hard to be here in Billings with no Grandmas or Grandpas, no Aunts, Uncles, Cousins. Someday, maybe.

Saturday Morning Surprise

I know all of you out-of-towners are jealous... especially you- the Willeys.

If my pretty flowers could speak they would say, "Brrrrrr."

The ideal...

The reality.

As you can see I just added a link to MY etsy store. It is pretty lame but I have been making these blocks for years and love to do it so much. Who knows I make some cash. Check it out.

I know I have been terrible about blogging lately. The truth of the matter, we have no news! The kids are great. AJ and I are great. I hope you are too.
