While we were in Utah visiting for Thanksgiving, we took a new group picture since most of the family was together. Unfortunately, Kregg and his family weren't there but here are a couple of pics of the rest of us. :o)

Have a Happy & Safe Halloween!

Happy Halloween! My dad came stopped by to see Alyssa and I on his way back to Utah today. He thought it would be fun to scare Alyssa and I, so he left rubber spiders and mice all over my apartment. And I do mean ALL over. They were in bathtub, in the kitchen, on my table, in the bookcase. etc. I'm sure that I'll continue to find them over the next few days.

This year, Alyssa dressed up as the Wicked Witch of the West. These pics are from before she went to the Halloween dance at her school.

Sea World's Halloween Spooktacular

Last weekend, Alyssa and I went to the Halloween Spooktacular at Sea World. It was fun to see all the kids in their costumes! They were so cute!!! There were even little booths set up throughout the park for the kids to go around and trick or treat! The sealion show even had a Halloween theme makeover. They counted down their favorite scary moments; recreating scenes from Jaws, the Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, and the Thriller music video. It was pretty cool. Here are some pics from the day!

It's My Birthday!

Happy birthday to me!!! I turned 27 today! Wow! I'm old! ;o) My boss gave me the day off work so I hung out at home and relaxed until Alyssa got out of school. We had birthday cake and then when Sara got home from work we went and got dinner from Peony's. They have amazing Chinese food, if you haven't been there before, you need to check them out! It was a fun day. :o)

Finish Line

They made it to the end! I still can't believe that they run 26.2 miles for fun but it's pretty impressive! Great job guys!

Mile 16

My dad and Brett ran the St George marathon again this year so we all came up to cheer them on. We met them at mile 16 to say hello and to tell them to keep going, only 10 miles left. To meet them at mile 16 we have to hike a couple miles up hill to get to the course.

Here we are waiting for them.

Doug and Alyssa had fun picking on each other while we waited.

Here's Brett.

Here's Dad.

The hike back to the car.

A few other members of our family are talking about running the marathon with them next year. I'm not going to be one of them, but I have committed to making signs and hiking to mile 16 to cheer them on! :o)

My New Friend

When I opened my door to go to work the other day, I had a surprise waiting for me.

Isn't he cute? I'm not really a big fan of bugs, but he's pretty cool. He looks like a leaf. :o) I knew bugs like him existed but this was the first time I had ever seen one. I can see how his looks would really help him hide in a tree but it didn't help too much when he was on my front door. When I got home from work he was still there. He hung out on my door for a few more days but then he decided to move on to greener pastures. So long buddy!

First School Dance

Alyssa went to her first middle school dance this week. She came over before the dance so that I could do her hair and make up. Doesn't she look lovely?
