My Grandma’s b-day and the trunk-or-treat

Being in primary has brought be a lot of joy and sometimes a lot of stress. This year our primary was in charge of our wards trunk-or-treat and sadly this fell on the day of my Grandma’s 80th birthday. So we had to miss her party because I had to be at the trunk-or-treat. BUT we did take some time to go visit my grandma before her party and wish her a happy birthday. She is an amazing women and I feel blessed to have her in my life and that my children are able to know her.


For the most part our trunk-or-treat was a success and my kids came home with lots of candy. I spent many hours planning, cutting, and sewing my kids costumes. I was so excited to see them all dressed up. My little Tinkerbell and Peter Pan…

Don’t you just love all of Madelyn’s silly faces. That girl rarely gives me a good smile when I take her pictures. We are now in the silly smile phase.

My Birthday!

My birthday was a pretty normal day but we did go out for dinner with the kids andIMG_1772

I got a wonderful surprise present. Jared and the kids gave me the camera that I’ve been wanting for a long time now! I was not expecting this at all so I was thrilled and a little teary eyed to be receiving such a nice gift.


I sure love and appreciate the amazing husband that I have. He is so very thoughtful!
