Halloween was fun this year. The kids loved a costume I borrowed from a guy at work - a gorilla. Dallin and Hunter both had it on at separate times....aside from the thing being so hot, it was really pretty scary. For actual Halloween, Hunter was a wrestler with a fro wig (our neighbor called him Richard Simmons Jr.), Gwennie was a BYU Cheerleader (which she deicded 3 days before and I had to expedite the shipping from Provo), Tyler was an army guy, and Dallin was a vampire, but really just a kid in shorts with a cape on. They all got a lot of loot and loved every minute. I wore a halloween t-shirt and put a spider tattoo on my cheek. hurrah.
You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. some may be significant only to you. some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experience. - President Hinckley

Gwennie came in and talked to me while I was laying on the floor in my closet....she said, "mom,do you still have your wedding dress?" I said "yes, do you want to see it...." and then we started trying it one together and I realized how much she looks like me. It really was a blessing that she came in while I was moping in the closet because she pulled me out of the "pity party" that I had started throwing for myself. We had a lot of fun.
