October

October

October has been… an October.

In general, the month tends to be a little crazy for us. I always fight it and try and make October last longer as it is the month with my very favorite holiday. It never works and it always turns into costume creation procrastination! That should be a SAHM sport: Costume Creation Procrastination! Just look at her not pulling out that sewing machine!

I only fought it for so long and then Saturday morning I ran through everyone’s costumes to verify it was all ready. Because a certain mom might have been thinking Monday, Monday, Monday and we had a Trunk or Treat on Saturday, Saturday, Saturday!

But let’s back up to Friday because a certain large kitty is too cute to skip…

And then Saturday. I really wish there was a way to effectively photograph glitter. You should see the piles of glitter all over my office right now. CRAZY TUTU MAKING MASSACRE.

But it was worth it.

Monday evening meant Halloween and our traditional pumpkin pizza. Not “actual” pumpkin, just shaped like one. And this year – orange dough! We used to buy a pumpkin pizza each year from Papa Murphy’s but they quickly shrunk in size with each passing year and kept raising their price. Not to mention the line and waiting and then cooking – I opted out a few years ago and started making our own pumpkin pizza. I was massively thrilled with the shape, not too shabby if I do say so myself! Next year I’m going to try and remember to set aside some dough to dye green for a stem. That’s the only thing missing from ours! (Okay, let’s be honest, it’s also missing massive salami slices cut to real-life jack-o-lantern shapes. But we made do.)

Then we had “real” trick-or-treating on Monday. Check out Cam’s costume!

Happy Halloween!

  1. I sure enjoy the blogs you do and the photos of the kids and you! they are sure growing fast! October we had 3 conferences for Church. One of course was General Conference. Then we had Stake Conference with a Seventy present (Bro. Cooke?) The following week an apostle Bro. Todd Kristopherson came to talk for the weekend. 3 weekends in a row! Talk about schedules changing and feeling like a chicken with its head cut off! I didn’t think it would effect me like it did. Bro Kristopherson took photos with all the kids and teens that wanted photos. One of the sisters took the photos of him greeting each person. I am not sure exactly how many he did, but she said she took 85 photos. Each photo he greeted them like it was the very first one. He never seemed to look tired or bored. Unfortunately I didn’t go that day, but looking at the photos helped. I could just imagine Jesus doing the same thing. Little kids were hugging him. It was so precious…

    You are a great mom and I am so very proud of you! I have been doing some arbitration and indexing. (More arbitration really.) I enjoy it very much. Last month I got 3300 arbitrations done. Indexing was only 148. But like I said those conferences messed me up! Hopefully this month I will do better. Love you kiddo!
