The Big One

Congrats to Zach and the team of professionals (Dad the master guide, big brother Nate the Scoping Specialist, big brother Ben the videographer, and Uncle Jeff Big Horn specialist) on the hunt of the century. Zach got the biggest big horn sheep this earth has ever known. Eric and I are proud of you. We can't wait to see the unvailing of the Big Horn Sheep video that you guys spent 100+ hours on. I can't wait to hear this hunting adventure story retold over and over for the next thirty or more years.
p.s. I have never seen Dad so happy about a hunt and that is saying alot
p.p.s Dad, will you still remember my 3 X narly hunt??

A Spooky Halloween

This is how my Halloween Saturday went. Zach comes over at 10 am. He makes me and Eric a scrumptious waffle breakfast. Then Zach has plans for me to make his Halloween costume. He wants to be a sock monkey. I thought it was a cool idea so I agreed. We got all the supplies and I went to work. I spent the rest of the afternoon making this puppy!... or should I say monkey.

I am happy how it turned out. Then we get an invite to Clara's halloween/birthday party. The party was at Katy and Justin's and it was a pleasant surprise to find out that all my family/nieces/nephews are in town!!

Eric and I went trick or treating with all the kids and I had a BLAST! I can't wait until I can take my own kids trick or treating. I took Vivi through a haunted house that one house set up in their garage. Props to them... it was awesome... I think I was more scared than Vivi:) I also made Katy, my scaredy cat sister-in-law through. p.s. The gated community by Justin and Katy's home gives out king size candy bars like crazy.

Oh yes, and I can't forget to mention our totally awesome ward Halloween Party. Eric and I didn't dress up because we went straight from his inter mural soccer game. He was a "dirty soccer player." We were thinking about being a deer and hunter, but we are so glad we didn't because there were TWO COUPLES who came as bambi and a hunter. It's just an easy idea when you already have camo. This Halloween was great because last year I was on a hunt so I didn't get to do all the games, parties, pumpkin carving, and other spooky holiday festivities.

Also: Props to pop corn and cotton candy couple at my ward party... props to Obama and Michelle couple at my ward party... they looked legit.... and props to the couple two doors down who finally took the Chucky doll down from their window. I was scared for my life every time I had to walk by it. (My BF's out there know that was like my biggest fear growing up)
