Oh so much to say..

Okay, first! It has been like forever, but I promised pictures of our apt, and mom keeps asking how my painting turned out. So, here you go!

Our little bathroom down stairs. Mom and I saw the paislies idea at a model home. Her's are white with brown walls--I think her's are cuter :-) Our bedroom...The kitchenand our living room.
There's also another bathroom upstairs and chandler's room, but I haven't gotten around to doing his room yet, and the bathroom is pretty boring. :-P We love having two floors! It was kind of weird painting rooms with out my mom.

Second.. in the words or Rocky, "No cake, no ice cream.. Happy birthday!" not really, there was cake and ice cream. I was happy to have friends around, and I am always happy for my birthday. Brandon made it so special for me. I love him!

Chandler would hide behind the blinds and then pop out and scare Brandon. They thought it was great fun. :-)

OKay moving on... Halloween was a little more exciting than last year. Here are some pictures of our chicken Chan-man!
I loved the little butt on it!

He loves to go out side...We carved pumpkins too, but I forgot to take pictures. So I am putting up pictures of our neighbor Julie's pumpkins... because they are really pretty amazing.
We are praying for Prop 8 in California, and personally we continue to support traditional marriage values. Hopefully there will be less contention once the elections are over. My mom sent me this that I loved very much and thought I would share. It's kind of long, but worth the time..

"Make no mistake about it, brothers and sisters, in the months and years ahead, events are likely to require each member to decide whether or not he will follow the First Presidency. Members will find it more difficult to halt longer between two opinions. President Marion G. Romney said, many years ago, that he had 'never hesitated to follow the counsel of the Authorities of the Church even though it crossed my social, professional or political life.'

'This is hard doctrine, but it is particularly vital doctrine in a society which is becoming more wicked. In short, brothers and sisters, not being ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ includes not being ashamed of the
prophets of Jesus Christ. . . . Your discipleship may see the time when such religious convictions are discounted. . . . This new irreligious imperialism seeks to disallow certain opinions simply because those opinions grow out of religious convictions.

'Resistance to abortion will be seen as primitive. Concern over the institution of the family will be viewed as untrendy and unenlightened.... Before the ultimate victory of the forces of righteousness, some skirmishes will be lost. Even in these, however, let us leave a record so that the choices are clear, letting others do as they
will in the face of prophetic counsel. There will also be times, happily, when a minor defeat seems probable, but others will step forward, having been rallied to rightness by what we do. We will know the joy, on occasion, of having awakened a slumbering majority of the decent people of all races and creeds which was, till then, unconscious of itself. Jesus said that when the fig trees put forth their leaves, 'summer is nigh.' Thus warned that summer is upon us, let us not then complain of the heat.'"

-Elder Neal A. Maxwell (1978)

Can you believe it was 30 years ago! Let us not complain about the heat!

We also pray for Nathan, he was beat up in the mission field last week.

Finally, school is going well. Although difficult, Brandon is a beast and we love and support him. It started raining on Friday and it really hasn't stopped. It hailed today, which is the closest thing to snow I have seen in almost a year :-) BUT, who cares because here comes the holidays! Happy thanksgiving!
