So Happy Together Marriage Conference

Kirt and I went to the So Happy Together Marriage Conference at the Spokane Convention Center.  The speakers were Hank Smith, Meg Johnson, and John Bytheway.  It was super funny and very informative too.  We really enjoyed it.

YW Evening in Excellence

Katie planned the YW Evening in Excellence for one of her YW value projects.  She did an amazing job! She did the decorations, set it up, planned the program, conducted, played the piano, spoke, and made the desserts.  Her dad (the bishop) also spoke (and also did an awesome job), and her new YW president Sister Larsen spoke.  The YW sang beautiful song too.  It was a great event and very well planned. 

Cute photo we took of Katie for her wall display for Evening in Excellence.

Raking Leaves

When I got back from our cruise there were so many leaves in our yard.  The kids were huge helpers. We raked for 2 hours on Wednesday, 2 on Thursday and 3 on Friday to get them all picked up.  We filled the 2 yard waste bins 2 times (they got emptied on Thursday morning), plus 29 bags.

Halloween 2019

Trick or treating at U-High.  Michelle and I took Scarlett to the high school to trick or treat.  Best trick or treating ever.  We were there for 15 minutes and her bucket was entirely full.  Plus it is warm because it is inside!

 We found Katie and her princess crown.  She didn't want to wear her whole costume to school so she just worn the crown.

Jon and family came to spend Halloween with us.  We had jack o' lantern pumpkins from Papa Murphy's and went trick or treating. 
  Ike was Luigi, Sadie's friend Joanna was Hermione, Sadie was Audrey from Descendants, Nixon was a shark and Scarlett was a pig.
 Garret and his buddies Kowen Sanders and Jaden Thompson wore 3 different costumes.  They kept raiding the costume bin so that they could find different costumes so they could keep going back to the houses that were giving out full sized candy bars. 

 Let the trading begin.  They dumped out all of their candy and traded to get their favorites. 
 Katie borrowed this costume from Michelle.  She wanted to be a princess.  It was Michelle's grandma's wedding dress. She never actually wore it in on Halloween, but she was very beautiful in it  so I had to put the pictures on the blog.
