Gobble, Gobble

I want to update about our wonderful Thanksgiving, but I didn't bring my camera on any of our wonderful adventures.  Instead I used my moms, which means I won't have pictures until I can get a hold of her sd card.
I did take 3 pictures while Brandon's mom and, her husband, Eric were here....

Hopefully I can get pictures from my mom's camera soon, because we really had a fabulous Thanksgiving.  Meanwhile, here's a letter I wrote to my brother Jared the day after Thanksgiving.  Jared comes home from his mission in Taiwan in 19 days!

Gobble, Gobble Jared,
Today (Friday) we ate pie and turkey and stuffing and delicious things.  We gave thanks for the wonderful things in our life.  There are too many things to be grateful for; we would be sick from eating too much candy corn if we named them all.  I assume they don’t have thanksgiving there(?).  Maybe the mission president celebrates it?  
Yesterday, Adam, Brandon, Natalie and I spent the day at six flags.  It was fantastic, and we all wondered how anyone can not like roller coasters.  The weather was perfect, and the lines were short.  Adam thinks it should be a Thanksgiving tradition.
We spend a good amount of our time speculating about how weird you will be when you come home.  But, general consensus is that we are all excited for you to be home.  I recently bought my ticket so Sterling and I will be there when you get off the plane.  How weird are you?  Just a little bit weird?  Brandon says I should not talk about you coming home, but I am not very good a writing these letters. 
Brandon wants to know what it’s like to AP, and Dad wants to know all the secrets of working closely with the mission president.  Does he really use a map and darts to pick which area missionaries will go to next?  Natalie says "Tell him he's a poo-poo head."
Time moves at a rapid pace in my life, and I can’t believe we are already jumping feet first into the holidays.  It’s my favorite time of year, and I am excited for the rest of 2012! 
See you soon!!!

Happy Halloween!

This is a Halloween photo dump:
Grandma and Sterling at the trunk or treat @ my parent's ward:

Chandler and his "girlfriend"/"she's not my girlfriend!" at school:

On Halloween night we had dinner and went trick or treating with our friends...

Bones with blood sauce...

Now, for the "everyone line up on the wall", inside, at night, horrible lighting pictures...

The kids went by themselves to the doors this year!

Sterling and Scarlett tried to go inside...

Later, the wachs came over for a short visit...

Here's Chandler being hilarious..

I love Halloween, and it's 8,000 times more fun with kids.  We had such a wonderful time, and I can't believe it's over.  Happy Halloween!
