So it has almost been a month since I posted and of course there is a lot I want to post about so I am just going to post some brief highlights.

10/14 Makayla's 13nth Birthday.

Officially a teenager! YIKES!

10/16 & 17 Going down to Mt. Pleasant with my Mom and Sister and seeing relatives. Seeing the Manti Temple and reminiscing about younger years. I think the best part was seeing my Uncle Marlow (my Dads brother) and him showing us his den of hobbies. It was really good to see him, my Dad looked alot like him so it was very heart warming to see him and keep that relationship alive.

The Manti Temple

Uncle Marlow in his Amazing Den with some of his collections of Marbles.
10/19 F.H.E. at Staci and Martins to celebrate October Birthdays, Sammi, Kayla, Brandon and Martins. Happy Birthday to them!

We had delicious soups, rolls,cookies and apple juice. Very YUMMY!

The birthday kids, Martin, Kayla, Bran and Sammi.

10/23 Sammi had a field trip to Black Island farms with her school. Very fun.

Sammi and her pumpkin that she picked.

10/25 Moms annual Chili Party. No pictures, we didn't get there til later. But the chili was GREAT and it was a GREAT success. Lots of family came. Thanks mom for all the work you put into keeping your tradition going.

10/27 Brock scored 2 goals in his Hockey game. We still lost 3 to 5, but it was a good game. (How could it not be, he scored not once but twice!)

Brock scored both those goals.

Brock skating after the puck.

10/31 Halloween! Fun trunk-or-treating.

Harli- A purple witch and Sammi- A pink diva.

11/01 My cousin Jaren is getting married, So my Aunt and cousins(the sister and sisters-in-law) put on a shower for the soon to be sister-in-law. Fun to see family and new additions.

11/03 Yeah!!!!! Brock scored AGAIN! However, we lost 4 to 8. It was a good game because of course Brock scored and Our team scored 4 goals in ONE game. wahooo! Our next game is on Monday in Logan at 6:00.

Brocks goal. I was just turning on my camera when Brock scored. I was sooo happy and yet sooo mad that he couldn't of waited for about 30 more seconds so I would of had it on video. ha ha. Oh well, we will take what we can get.
11/05 For our youth activity this week we got tickets to go to the taping of the Youth New Years Eve Fireside at the Conference Center in SLC. Our YW Pres. Lynds met us at the parking garage and brought pizza. We ate, then walked a block or 2 to get to the conference center. We had a lot of fun being together and the entertainment was great. Good clean fun, can't beat that.

The 3 funny girls we had in our vehicle.(while we were waiting for our turn to get out of the parking garage we had fun with my camera that just so happened to be in my purse. yeah!!!

The 2 fun leaders in the vehicle. LOL

Well I think I'm going to call that good and hopefully I will be better at staying caught up on things so I can elaborate a little bit more.
