This is Grandpa Drew's Ward Halloween Costume. Someone was offended that he came to the church dressed as the devil. Come on...it's Halloween! I drew the mustache and beard. I know, it looks good.
And we're ready to go trick-or-treating! Taylor is a "white butterfly", not to be called a fairy. McKay is a "vwagon". McKay had a blast. Taylor was a little leary of the scary costumes out there this year. We were following a little boy with a scary green Incredible Hulk mask. Whenever they crossed paths, Taylor would walk ten feet away from him or cling to my legs. Other than that, she had fun. Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do with all this sugar!

This year, Aunt Rachelle got a new snake, a red-tailed boa, I think. He weighs around eighteen pounds and eats a rat a week. Yum. Taylor enjoyed him, hands-on style. She even kissed him! McKay loved the snake too, but doesn't enjoy touching so much as screaming "snake!" and then running from the snake to the couch. For other exciting adventures that occured in Utah, see D.O. and Raggles Blog. They tell of how I whacked Spencer's ankle with my putter on our date night sending him to the floor, and some.

They are twins (almost)!
This is a picture of Spencer's family. From left to right: Back row: Colton (Lani's boyfriend), Lani, McKay, Spencer, Grandpa Drew, me, DeLane, Maren, Christian (Spencer's older brother), Pregnant Rachelle (Davido's wife), Davido. Bottom Row: Trevor, Taylor, Kelia, and Brent. Christian's wife and two and a half children are in AZ right now. Big Family! Our kids couldn't get enough of their aunts and uncles.
This is embarrassing. I am half-way through with "Order of the Phoenix"(Harry Potter #5). I'm trying to finish so I can watch the movie. I keep getting distracted with other books. I just finished Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. I thought it was really weird...and I liked it. I like her writing style. I'm anxious to get my hands on New Moon. I'm also reading a book for Madera 1st Ward book club.
J.K., I promise I won't let you down. Forgive me for all my neglegance. I am going to get through #5 by the end of the year!
