Can you imagine Helaman’s reaction when he heard the news? He had promised the boys. The boys had faith. And they all saw the promise come to pass by the hand of the Lord. The caption under this picture was, “it’s true sir, all present and accounted for.” I wonder if he gave a sigh of relief and a pray of faith to God, who had protected them. No, they were not in perfect condition, but that wasn’t the promise. They were all accounted for.

I love this picture but didn’t want people to think we are cruel. So this is a no judgment zone haha.

On Sunday this little tree tipped over on him and it was too perfect not to capture. Luckily Greg had his phone in hand and captured it quickly so that we could rescue him. But isn’t this picture priceless?:)

~Halloween Scares~




Do you see this amazing house?  As we were driving around on Halloween, we saw this CREEPY house on Center Street and we had to stop and take photos.  It was quite fun!

We had such a great Halloween!  It all started out with the Mac Munns Family Halloween party.  It was so much fun.  First of all, we will introduce you to The Halloween Ostler’s, aka THE FLINTSTONES!


Not only did Barney, Betty and BamBam show up to dinner, BUT the entire Flintstone crew.  Fred, Wilma, Pebbles AND Dino!

If you know my family, I know the “scone” tradition. Well, my parents were working in the temple that night, and so we had our scones the night of the party.  No one else wanted the remaining dough, so G and I took it and made some DELICIOUSNESS on Sunday.  It was so nice to know that the dough was yummy and we didn’t even have to make it ourselves and wait for it to raise, etc.  It made for delicious treats, with not so much effort and I loved that!  PLUS, those fresh rolls with the left over chicken noodle soup that mom sent home…mmmm.

On Halloween, we got Bekkett dressed up and went to Main Street where the little shops were giving out treats to kids who had dressed up.  Bekkett got about 1/16 of a bucket full of tootsie rolls and dum dums.  :/


It was pretty cute to see him walking around and everyone reacting to our costumes.  They loved it!  PocoLoco Swim Shop even took a picture of us and put it on their Facebook page.  It was fun.  Bekkett was a natural.  After all, it WAS to get candy!

Later on, Greg was able to get off work for 2 hours instead of his usual 45 minutes and so we got Bekkett ready to go door to door.


First stop was our neighbor Steph Murdoch, who Bekkett loves!  I just love that picture!  And then it was on to a little cul-de-sac in our Ward.  We had so much fun.  We came to a door where I think they put these scary statues on the porch to scare trick-or-treaters away, and that it did.  Bekkett was NOT a fan!

At the end of the night, we had to show off how much he was able to a aquire and he did pretty well for being such a little fella!  All thanks to our Ward friends! 🙂

What a fun year!  It was so fun to dress up as a family.  I think we will be making this a tradition! 🙂  HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL!
