Because you want to know.....

I know this has taken forever to post, but I guess it's better late than never. My month of October was a little hectic, as I'm sure it was for all of you. Halloween is one of my top favorite times of year. I love to get my Halloween decorations out and I love when the weather changes and football season. It's great. Brody has been learning how to do projects. He loves projects and if I'm busy doing something, he wants to join in. So, to preserve my projects from a two-year-old's hands, I decided to get him his own projects to do while I was doing my own. He made candy necklaces and foam haunted houses. He even made a gingerbread haunted house with his dad. That was to keep him busy so that I could make our Halloween costumes. I had such a good time this year being busy as a "bee" making our party clothes. It was much fun. I am not the greatest seamstress, but I did okay. Rick's sister got married in October and so we headed to Mesa a day early and went to Schnepf farms for the pumpkin festival with Andrea's family and then the next day was Tasha's big day. Lots of fun pictures!!
We had our annual Halloween party and this year we had 80 people in attendance -- WOW! That's our biggest group yet. It was a great time with donuts on a string, a pinata, bobbing for apples, the bounce house and most of all our family and friends. My dad was even here. He was the "bee keeper" of our little entourage. Later in the week we took Brody trick or treating to a few houses. We had been practicing all week to say trick or treat and he got it down. My dad stayed and visited for two weeks before we headed to Utah to take him home (I'll post later about that trip and give you all excuses for why you didn't see me) It was great to have him here. Brody sure loves his pompa!!

In Memorium

This is one of my most favorite pictures of my mom. It's amazing to me that 17 years have gone by since my mom passed away. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her.

Been a little AWOL

Okay. I know I have been lost in obscurity lately, but I really do have pictures to post about why I have not been blogging, so stay tuned for that. But, I was tagged to do this so I thought I would respond and let you all know I am alive, just super crazy busy :)
