Happy Thanksgiving

I posted a blog last year about the best holiday ever, I won't bore you with all the details about Thanksgiving, but just say how excited I am to spend some time with my family for a much needed break. I also wanted to post this clip from Mormon Messages which was shot at Times Square in New York.

How I would have responded to this interview...I am thankful for my sweet wife and loving children. I am also very thankful to have a job and the opportunity to serve in my church.

My Latest Creation

At Enrichment Meeting last month we had a goods and services auction. The thing I offered at the auction was that I would make and decorate a cake for someone. A member of the Young Women Presidency won it, and asked me to make a shoe cake - any kind of shoe. They were having a Personal Progress meeting or something (obviously, I am not in YW), and the theme was around shoes. Oh, and they wanted me to use all the YW colors. It was quite a challenge for me to come up with something, but with the help of the internet, it turned out alright.

I know - if I took this many pictures, it obviously took me way too long...oh well, I need something to remember all day yesterday by.

Halloween 2009

Another Halloween has come and gone, and we have more candy in our house than food. At least for a day or so.
Hanna saw this Rubix Cube costume on the internet (thank you Liz), and that was the only thing she would possibly be this year. She has recently mastered the Rubix Cube, and can solve them amazingly fast. She made this costume herself (okay, I helped a little.)

Gavin was Darth Vadar, and Gunnar was a ninja. They are such boys...always want to look tough!
Lily was Tinker Bell and Gracie was a bride. This was Lily Sue's first time out trick or treating like a big kid. It was really cute. She stayed right with all the big kids - as long as I held her hand (awwww). She stared with wide eyes and made very wide circles around any scary looking costumes. Gracie got to go out with just her dad this year - she says he's her prince. I love it!

Lily tried on the Rubix cube, and then couldn't walk without falling over.
We had a great Halloween. Now I just need to perfect my candy-stashing skills.
