Murder Mystery

Last night we went to Clint and Jenny's house for a Murder Mystery party! It was fun! If you couldn't tell from the pictures the theme was the eighties... It was nice, they had babysitters there for the kids. So we were able to have party and still have the kids there.
This is my cool eyes... my first time wearing fake eyelashes! Nice huh?
We dressed Kami up in her leggins and used my socks for leg-warmers for her... I think she looked so cute!! We couldn't really figure out a boys costume... so Chance was just in a big t-shirt with his hair all crazy.
Steve and I were assigned to be Jim and Tammy Faye Baker... In case nobody knows who they are; Jim Baker was a televangelist (TV Preacher, pretty much) who was involved in scandals, such as sleeping with lots of hookers... He didn't really wear a mullet, but since we were at an eighties party Steve just had to wear a mullet wig. Tammy Faye Baker, was always known for her caked-on makeup and in all the pictures I ever saw of her, she was pretty fancy. My mom happened to have this awesome dress that she found at the D.I. years ago! Pretty cool huh?
Katie did my make-up and my hair for me. So that was nice! It was fun to get all done up in fun costumes! Steve even got into it! And he got to wear his pink tie again from Josh's wedding! He never thought he would wear it again! haha.
Oh... And Chance just had to try on the mullet wig! Looks pretty good huh? It was a fun night! We decided we aren't really cut out for acting... We just stood around and talked to the people we knew. It was our first time ever going to one. It was fun though. And you will be happy to know that we didn't do it!

The Pumpkin Walk

Well we started out the night with our pumkin dinner. It was pretty good. I was a little worried about it when I was making it, but it turned out pretty good. The recipe is on and it is called Teri's Dinner in a Pumpkin. It was pretty easy and fun! It was good with breadsticks.Then we went to the pumpkin walk with Jason and Amanda Bickley and it was fun! It was a little chilly for the kids, but it was a good time! We love the fall! Kami and Steve were having fun! He had her giggling most of the time! She is really starting to be more playful!
The pumpkins were cool. I can't believe how much detail some of them had! Chance loved it! But he has this new thing for pumpkins, he loved watching the food cooking in the pumpkin. He kept sneaking over to check on it.
We brought the stroller for Kami, but it turned out that Chance wanted to sit and Kami wanted to be held! haha.
This is Steve and Kami with our good friend Jason and his cute little girl Nora. Nora and Kami had the same due date, but Nora couldn't wait... so me and Amanda didn't get to hang out in recovery! Me and Amanda were remembering that last Halloween we went to a party with the Larsens and we were both pregnant, but didn't tell anyone! Funny times!

It was a good night! We finished it up with some hot chocolate from Maverik... MMMMM. and Steve and I stopped at Redbox and got Iron Man. I think Steve liked the movie... me and Kami snuggled on the couch and... that was the end of it. I think that happens with most movies we rent. Steve watches them and I snooze... Anyway, it was a fun night! Thanks for inviting us to go Jason and Amanda!

Pumpkin Fun!!

I'm excited! We are going to the Pumpkin Walk tonight and before I am going to make dinner in a pumpkin. I have never done this before, but I have heard it is fun! So I will try to remember to take pictures and I will post the recipe if it is good! I think I am just excited to get out of the house! It is sad, but I already have cabin fever so bad! Oh, and speaking of the outdoors... Check out Steve's Fishin Blog. He updated it with all sorts of stuff!! Well hopefully I will be posting soon with some fun pictures!

Oh, this picture is a picture of our first halloween together... (married.) Do we look so much younger or what??

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Well its been a while since I have blogged, things have been crazy, but we haven't had a whole lot of excitement at our house... I am actually sad, because I was so excited to post pictures of our fun date to see REBA (my favorite singer) and Kelly... but we weren't able to go... Sweet Kami wont take a bottle, so my options are very limited. I have been struggling a little bit with it. We can't do anything without her and I would really like some "me" time. We will keep trying the bottle, but if anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them!!! But I love fall. I am excited for Halloween! I love it! I have been puting together the kids costumes with a TON of help from my mom... I will post pictures after halloween! I am excited for it, but I don't know if I can top last year. Every year we go up to the halloween parade at McKay Dee Hospital and everyone there loved Chance's costume. It was perfect because his walk matched his costume. He had just learned to walk. Here are some pictures of it!

Oh, but I do have some fun news... I got a new calling and I am sooooooooo excited for it! I got called to be the Sunday School teacher of the 14-15 year olds in my ward. Luckily that is my sister's class and I taught the first time on Sunday and I'm excited for it! Man, I can't think of much else that is going on in our lives... but hopefully I will have more to post next time. Also, I have been tagged by a few people and I have to say sorry. I am not good at doing stuff like that, but I am going to try to do some sometime... I am a slacker blogger, what can I say?

Who do I look like?
