The Griggs came over to celebnrate with us also!

Evan and Nina tend to stick together pretty well

I love Halloween in Arizona, everyone just sits on their driveways to pass out candy and it's a big party!

The best part of Halloween is candy sorting

We had a Frozen theme this year but Cyrena declined participating.  We had Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and.......Hermione

Beautiful, elegant Elsa

Sweet and funny Anna
Strong and cute Kristoff

Smart and savvy Hermione

Sppoks de Ballet 2015

These girls got to be in their Ballet Studio's halloween performance--Spooks de Ballet.  Anna was a kitty cat and Natalie was a spider. Of course they loved it and did so well. 

Anna's best friend Kensie Campbell was so sweet to come see her perform!

After the performance we went and ate some pie with friends!

Grandma & Grandpa Taylor's Fall visit

It's always a party when Grandma and Grandpa come!  We absolutely love their visits and attention.  We try to squeeze in as much fun as possible.  Grandma's ankle has healed and she is doing well!

We headed to a local farm for some Fall Festival fun

Evan just loved picking up the hay and dirt and tossing it. 

Grandma treated Anna, Natalie and I to manicures for Natalie's birthday.

I think the girls were amazed at all the steps to get great nails! haha.

A fun way to spend an afternoon for sure

General Conference October 2015

Conference has always been a special time for me.  I have always loved having it surrounded with traditions of family, food and the nourishment of our spirits.

Usually I bake the cinnamon roll the night before then just warm them up.  This year I formed them and refrigerated them and baked them in the morning.

Evan was anxious to sink his teeth into one!

He was happy with the result!

Life as we know it is full of laughter, fun, stress, love, faith and surprises. What more could we ask for?
