Does life get better than this?

Oh the joys of Halloween. Last night I got Dave to dress up as Mr. Potato Head with me and tonight I realized his love knows no bounds.

I only wish Susan Montgomery could have seen Dave tonight in her creation. It's not everybody who can make a full grown Teletubby costume.

5 Days and counting

There have been so many things over the last of couple weeks that I really should have written about, but with Halloween just a short week away, I had to prioritize. I mean seriously, who wants to sit at their computer when they could be making a Jello Brain mold.

Don't try this at home

We have a serious lack of good pizza places here. Because of this we have been forced to start creating our own. Ben suggested that we make a pizza with all of our favorite breakfast foods on it. I think the worst part was the baked eggs on top of soggy hash browns. Yea, we won't be doing that again.

Rabbit Stew?

It was only a year ago that I went into my grocery store and saw the "Rabbit meat sale." I then did what all Hamiltonites do. I took a picture of the sale sign with my phone and sent it in a text to everyone I know. I couldn't believe they were selling rabbit. On my way home tonight, I passed a house that had a large hand painted sign by their driveway saying "Rabbit Meat sold here." What does it say about me that tonight I was thinking "Do people make soups out of rabbit, or is it a casserole ingredient?." Who knows, in four more years I could blog about the most fabulous Rabbit stew I made for dinner. Ok, so maybe I won't go that far.

I knew he was gifted.

Dave has many gifts. One of them is that he can fall asleep anywhere. When we were first married we were having couples prayer. (we used to do that when we were newly-weds) Now, while HE was praying it all of a sudden got very quiet. I thought "Oooh, look what a spiritual guy I just married" then he started to snore. It's a gift to be able to fall asleep on your knees when you are saying prayers.

Yesterday, I picked up Jonny from school. He was soo excited because he had been awarded the "BEST RESTER" award. Yep, that is talent. I asked his teacher what that was, and she explained that he loves nap time and doesn't move off his rug. I told you he was gifted.

The song of the heart is What?

For the last 5 weeks I have had the job of leading the music in sacrament meeting. We rotate every month so I only have to do it every 6 months. The last month didn't go as well as I would like.

1. "Nearer my God to Thee" : Leaving Sarah in the boys care was a big mistake. Half way through the song, she escaped and ran for the stairs to join Dave and I on the stand. While we were singing, Ben pulled her by the ankles down the stairs causing lots of entertainment for all around.

2. "There is a green hill far away" : Again Sarah escapes, gets sidetracked on the way up the stairs to the big window, runs over and opens curtains, letting light into the chapel.

3. "Dear to the Heart of the Shepherd" As I stand to lead, organist leans over and informs me the G key is not working. Song sounds very odd since G is played in every chord.

4. “With Humble Heart” As I stood to start leading, the gentleman who had just said opening prayer (who is in his mid eighties) leans over to me and says, "You know you have a cut up the back of your skirt. It's ok though because you have good legs."

Ahhhh good times.

Happy Halloween

Halloween is the best holiday ever. Yes, I'm sorry Mr. St. Patrick, and groundhog you just can't get better than cob webs all over your house and candy that looks like puke from Oriental Trading. ( I know you're jealous ) Anyway, on our quest for Halloween happiness, I am off to the big city. (If you can call Missoula the big city)
Today I will start trying to put together Jonny's costume. He has decided to be Baby Bowser, a weird turtle thing from Mario brothers. It doesn't stop there. He really wants to be Baby Bowser who is dressed up as a robot for Halloween. He thinks Baby Bowser should be able to dress up too. I asked him if I could make a robot costume, and then he could imagine he is Baby bowser underneath the costume. It was a no go. Dave has also agreed to dress up with me. We are going to be Mr. and Mrs. Potato head. I can't wait! Here are a few of my favorite past Halloween costumes. Woo hoo, only 26 more days

Conference quotes

While watching the third session of conference, Ben came in and sat down. He then asked:
"So,what quarter are we in?"

Right before we started the fourth session Jonny said,

"Are we still watching General Grevious?" (he's a bad guy in "Star Wars" just in case you didn't know)

Ahhh, I love conference weekend
