Halloween is scary this year!

You know those punk teenagers that come to your door on Halloween dressed in their everyday clothes and want candy? You know that feeling of "hey, you don't deserve that!" when you give them some candy? Would you grab some candy from the cute ghost or Superman next to this punk and give him their candy? Then why would you vote for a president who wants to give the 40% of Americans who don't pay income taxes a $1,000 tax "credit"? That is scary, my friends.

A moment of joy!

So this could come across a bit...well oober gooberish but I'm going to share anyway!
The past couple of days I've been thinking about our wedding day. For all who were there
know what perfect weather we had, how much we laughed and just what a blast we had!
It was honestly the best day. Anyway, the reason I'm sharing this is to explain our main picture for now...though it appears to be a bit out of focus and my eyes may be shut the expressions on our faces are priceless! We couldn't have been happier leaving Heritage Gardens to go start our new life together, and we had just had the funnest time with our families and friends, especially dancing with the nieces and nephews! We will NEVER forget those moments :)
In time there will be another picture and it will show our goofiness and where we are in life...but for now...a picture showing a few of you who shared in making our day the
best day is just the way to go!!

Happy weekend....bundle up, it's chilly out there!

General Conference...up close!

We are enjoying our conference weekend!
The messages have been great, haven't they?!
Well Mike and I haven't posted about our TV aka movie screen yet
and thought today would be a good time!
About 2 weeks after we were married we had our projector and we made
a trip to Home Depot for supplies!
After a few hours of labor, we now get to watch General Conference on

It's cheaper than a big screen tv, and WE made it
with our own two...err four hands!!
Just wait until the Jazz season really starts up...we hope to have many guests enjoying
our "big screen" with us!
Happy Conference weekend!

How do Jill and I know that we are sisters!?
We each had huge cysts in the past few months!
My cyst caught me off guard and it grew over the past month upon
my ovary and one morning it burst. Not what I would call FUN by any means.
After getting an ultrasound we discovered I had had a 6 1/2 inch cyst burst. Yikes.
Well Jill on the other hand, she's had hers growing for a while. They discovered it while she was
pregnant with Reece. The doctors were watching it closely and yesterday Jill went under the
knife. This was going to be an out patient surgery until they realized the cyst was bigger and
it was wrapping around tubes...yuck. So long story short, they made an incision lower and removed a GRAPEFRUIT sized cyst. She is at the hospital recovering nicely but will be in pain for a bit.
And that my friends is how I know Jill and I are Cyst-ers!

Love you Jill, Get better!

Chop chop chop-a-roo

After MONTHS of trying to decide if I really wanted to cut my hair, yet again, I took the plunge!
I nearly cut it before the wedding, I thought it would be fun to have long hair for my bridals then short hair for the wedding, but fear got the best of me and I chickened out! Oh well.
So last night after work I went to Melinda's and she did the honors!
I love it, Mike loves it!
Thanks Melinda for helping me feel like me again!!
I'll get more pics up later (per request of Marianna!!)
But you get the idea!
Now we can all sleep tonight!
