Our Halloween started out early and frigid. We were up at 7:00 to prepare ourselves for family pictures. My friend from Oakcrest gave a superb deal and so we whisked ourselves out the door to make it to our destination on time. I got to look at what she took on her camera and they are fantastic. I am looking forward to getting our disk so I can view all of them.
I decided that I needed to put at least a few things on the wall, and to complete the composition I needed a iron star to replace the tin one that got stepped on during the moving process. So we headed to Rod Works in Lehi. (Oh, friends how I love it!) I found exactly what I was looking for plus a few other things but decided it best to bide my time on the other items that brought joy to my heart.
Then it was off to Walmart to get Emma some tortillas for her quesadillas. It is one thing she takes very seriously. We came home for luncheon and naps. Both were glorious. Ruby woke up before Emma so we got to work on cutting our Halloween sugar cookies that actually were cut out with Christmas cookie cutters because we forgot to buy Halloween ones at the store. They still turned out marvelously. These pictures were taken the day before when we were making the dough. If you are wondering what Emma is eating, it is sour cream. She loves it.
We then proceeded to the mad dash to get every one costumed and ready to go to Josh and Kami's. My poor family had to deal with me being in a 'pregnant rage' because it was so hot in the house. (It was 70 degrees) We made it out the door and off to our destination.
We had such a fun visit with everyone and enjoyed Kami's chili and Debbie's heavenly rolls, of which I think I ate four. The calories were well worth it. I am also most excited as Suzanne started on the super top secret ornament for my tree. I can't tell you how thrilled I am about them and how beautiful they are. (The big reveal with be in about a month.) The girls had fun going around with the cousins and Uncle Josh. Even now Ruby continues to talk about his mask and how cute he was. I think she is still trying to convince herself that she wasn't scared. She tells everyone about it. Kami also sent us home with her Little House on the Prairie Christmas DVD. I love it. We watched yesterday and I blubbered like an idiot. It comes highly recommended by me.
These little beauties were taken the day before Halloween, when Ruby had her party at school . These are her good friends at school, Summer and Jackson. Ruby has a playdate with Jackson tommorrow. She is excited and tells us that Jackson is her boyfriend and then laughs. When I talked with Misty, Jacksons mom, she told me that Jackson prays at every meal that he and Ruby can have a playdate. He also tells her what Ruby brings for show and tell every day, and that Ruby is pretty. She asked him what that meant he told her that it meant she was very cute. At school they always greet each other with a big bear hug. I am glad Ruby has such good friends.
