This Halloween was filled with friends, food, and fun! The celebration started with a girls night at Witchapalloza! It was a play type production where these people sang and interacted with the audiance. It was very interesting, but with all of the girls there we made it worth while!

My long lost friend Amber!

One of the many fabulous costumes these witches had!

Me with all of my favorite Girls!

Then we celebrated Halloween at Pat and Nicoles house with all of our friends! Well only the married ones. No one single wanted to attend... Hard one to figure out. We did a fun Pot Luck dinner with lots of goodies! It was fun to relax and enjoy everyones company.

Nicole and Carter Chillin!

Amber, Marina, and Me!

Unfortunatley I didn't get a photo of Nate, but he really didn't dress up. Most of the guys didn't. It was a lot of fun though!

I like Halloween. Probably not as much as Nate, but I really enjoy the theatrics of this holiday. Just this weekend we went with a bunch of friends to dinner and a haunted house (Nightmare on 13th) before Clint heads out on his mission. In all honesty I get so scared when we do stuff like that because I am a big scared y cat and Nate loves to give me an even harder time. But by the end of things I can sit back and laugh at myself.

So throughout the Haunted house we were trying to take pictures so half of them didn't turn, and we kept getting in trouble by the security people.
Here is Clint the future missionary!
Here is the mighty Jeff Willis!

WARNING!! Long Update

Well time has been flying by here for us. I have been meaning to update my blog, but have continued to run out of time. Well enough with excuses here is what has been going on with us over the last month and a half...

We went on a Durbano family vacation to Lake Powell! For those of you who have not been there let me tell you that it is a little slice of Heaven! We had perfect weather and even better company. Unfortunately I didn't take a camera so I have been waiting for others to send me pictures. I'll post them as soon as I get them. It was a fabulous trip!

I have had two of my best friends have babies that are completely adorable! First was Nicole & Pat Burns. They had a healthy baby boy that they named Carter. He is a cutie. He has an adorable older brother Lincoln that keeps Nicole on her toes! I love to hang out with them it a lot of fun!

My best friend Jessi had her first baby boy the end of September. It was quite an event. Crew was a tough little boy to get to leave the safety of his mother! He sure is cute. He came into the world a whopping 9 lbs. 1 oz. Nate and I got to meet up with them when they came to Utah to take Crews baby pictures. We love Jessi and Grant and miss them so much!

Here's Baby Crew! And below is Jessi and I!

Nate bought me my first EVER digital camera so I have been taking lots of pictures with it in hopes of being able to blog a little more often. So if the rest seems boring that's too bad!

Nate and I have been preparing for the winter. Here are a few pictures of the latest and greatest. We went into our forest of a back yard and cut down some dead trees to serve as firewood.

Nate with the mighty Chainsaw!Here's the start of our stack of Firewood

Our dogs are growing like crazy. It has been a lot of fun playing with them. They have some of the best personalities!

Roxy has become our little escape artist! She's dug holes climbed on top of the kennel all to get out.

And after a long day of play they crash on the couch with us.

This is the first time that they have ever been in snow! And the Love it. Every time that we brought them back in they would wine to get out. Oh by the way... We got 4 inches of snow!! Crazy.
