Happy Halloween!

Halloween is all about Matt dressing up. Yes, Matt. Last year, Matt and some of his friends who he works with dressed up as their co-workers. Matt dressed up as this guy named Carl last year and Matt won 1st in the costume contest. This year, the boys dressed up as some of their co-workers AND their boss, Dale. Matt got 2nd place, but he still won a blowup Halloween thing. He lost to his friend, Matt Cox, who dressed up as Dale. It was SOO weird seeing Matt Cox with hair, because he is bald! Here's some pictures of the boys and their costumes.


This is my husband.

Such a gross picture.

Matt, Bryan, Matt

Matt and the person he dressed up as!

I think Matt did a little too much with the facial hair. ha!

I Read NieNie

If you notice to the right of this post there's a little image of a typewriter, and it says I read NieNie. This woman is amazing! Lindsey Briggs first showed me her blog, and I was truly touched by Stephanie Nielson. Stephanie and her husband were practicing flying small planes with a plane instructor. Their plane lost control and crashed. The instructor was killed instantly. By the grace of God, Stephanie's husband (who's neck and back were broken) pulled both of their burning bodies out of the plane. She was burned on over 80% of her body, and he was burned over 30%. Her blog is seriously so cool and inspirational. It makes me want to refocus my life and cherish lifes little joys. She has been featured on Oprah, and you can watch videos of her on Oprah's site. I hope you guys enjoy her blog as much as I do. Thanks, Lindsey!

It's OFFICIAL! We are going to Texas for the Thanksgiving break! I am so excited for Matt to expierence my family's little Thanksgiving traditions. We are soooo happy for a break from work , school, and the freezing Idaho weather. TEXAS HERE WE COME!

P.S. I am totally exctied because "The Proposal" is coming out on DVD this Tuesday! It is seriously one of the funniest/cutest/feel good story movies I have seen in a while! At first, I was a little aprehensive about this movie from the previews. It looks like the typical love story chick flick. But NO! It is so good! Everyone watch it!
