Heaven on Earth

Nov 16, 2015

I love November 16! Today marks 5 years in our dream home (and it's become even more dreamy in the five years since we bought it!) and 1 year since my other favourite place was dedicated. I feel like it is so fitting that these two places share an anniversary as the Bible dictionary teaches that "[The temple] is the most holy of any place of worship on the earth. Only the home can compare with the temple in sacredness." I am so grateful for these amazing buildings and the blessing that each is in my life.

Happy Halloween!

Nov 1, 2015

I know I'm a day late, but our Halloween festivities went late into the night and by the time we got home, the last thing I wanted to do was upload photos. We had a great Halloween. Good food with friends, fun costumes and of course, the wee ones brought home gobs of candy.

We went with a Toy Story theme this year. Beebs and Man Cub happened to have Jessie and Woody costumes that fit them at the same time. We borrowed a Buzz costume from some friends for Bruce to wear and the Disney Store had an adorable alien onesie that was perfect for Shark Bait. That just left Sunshine and I... after a lot of debating, we finally decided on Buttercup the Unicorn (from Toy Story 3) for Sunshine and I threw together a penguin costume making me Weezy (from Toy Story 2). This was our first family theme since 2010! For Man Cub's first Halloween all the kiddos coordinated, but Bruce and I haven't dressed up for Halloween in five years! We both enjoyed joining in on the fun this year and the wee ones are already discussing what we can all dress up as next year.
