We spent Thanksgiving with Mark's family. We had planned to go to Manti but I just couldn't make the 3.5-hour drive at 36-weeks pregnant. We had a nice time, but missed the Mickelsons. Unfortunately, the baby was so active during dinner that I didn't get to fully enjoy my turkey! This kid has perfect timing!


I threw a little Halloween party last month. I made Millie a red-riding hood (which greatly challenged my limited sewing capabilities) and the rest of us were characters from the story. Mark was the sick grandma, my sister Mandie was the backwoodsman and I was the wolf (who swallowed the grandma). Millie was terrified by my wolf mask and made Mark hold her for the picture. What a silly girl!

The highlight of the night was the mock trick-or-treat. Millie and her cousin Lia went door-to-bedroom-door in our apartment. It was so cute. Millie loved all the candy and it was gone in a matter of days. I helped a little, but I really think she ate the majority.

OK, so Mark and I have yet to join the 21st century. We do not own a digital camera! So I have to wait to develop film before I can post any photos. Call me old-fashioned, but there's something exciting about going to pick up developed film and not remembering all the pictures you've taken. It's like opening up a Christmas present :) Now if I can just figure out how to post them, I'll share my presents with you.

OK, so I never thought I'd start a blog - - never. But after being told to do so by two friends in two weeks, I decided to give it a try. (I am such a push-over!) Anyway, I hope I can get this all figured out and that all my visitors (however few they may be) will enjoy the site (or at least not hate it).
