M.I.A.

So this week has been craaaaazy - the kind of crazy where I came home at 8:00 on Monday without a clue of what to make for dinner . . . so we had two bowls of Reese's Puffs cereal.  And then we scrounged for left overs the night after that, went out for dinner the next night, and made a quick batch of spaghetti the night after that - you get the idea.

I guess a new job will do that to you.

We've also been juggling both of us having different job schedules with one car.  That has been funny.  There has been lots of dropping off and picking up and waiting for one another and so on and so forth with me working on the other side of the valley and Dave working just down the street.  It's nutty.

In other news we had our ward Trunk-or-Treat tonight and had a blast - there are definitely perks to living in a family ward and our primary kids are one of them.  I've never been a big fan of Halloween, but I've found a reason to like it again - the kids!  They were beyond cute and so excited to be dressed up like Cinderella and Harry Potter.  We signed up to man a trunk for them to treat at/ do a little game with them when they came by.  We were among the three trunks that did a fishing game (where the kids toss in a string with a clothespin on the end and someone attaches candy to it for them to "real in" when you tug on their line).  Ours was surely the most humble trunk at the party - aka: we didn't have any cool Halloween decorations, dry ice, or a light show - but the kids could have cared less.  They were so excited, and when I tossed candy out from the back of our blanket-covered trunk they would get all wide-eyed, look at David, and ask, "How did that happen??"  So.  Much.  Fun.

Of course, being the smaller of the two of us, I was the one curled up in the back of the trunk, hooking candy onto kid's strings while David was out playing with them, but we still had a great time.


And you like our cowboy costumes?  I'm pro easy, on-hand costumes.  Cowgirl boots?  Check.  Gingham shirts.  Check.  Grandpa's Stetson?  Check.  We looked pretty snazzy if I do say so myself.

Happy Halloween y'all!
