Happy Halloween!

The day didn't start off the best. I really wanted to dress up for work but I could not decide on anything. Finally I decided I would be a house wife who is a byu fan. Basically my way of getting away with wearing my pjs to work and also trying to have a halloween costume. Needless to say it wasn't my best idea but hey at least I was comfortable. I have a little slide show from some of the people I work with in there Halloween costume. Just to give you a little idea of what I was up against since I lost the halloween contest. Not that I thought I would win but here you go :)

I only work 4 hours on Friday so it was nice to leave and go home and spend some time with my hubby. We really didn't do to much today except we did try to vote but they told us it would be an hour and half wait so we left. The afternoon just kinda rolled by and then it was night time. I decided to head over to my in-laws since no trick or treaters were going to be coming to my house tonight. So here are a few pictures of Tim and Anna in there costumes!



Here is also a picture of me even though I am really not dressed up in anything that cool :) Like I said before I was a Housewife :)

Halloween Work Party!

This year is the 10th anniversary that the call center I work at has been open. So they had a party to celebrate it. It just so happened to fall around Halloween so of course we had a Halloween party! So in this first picture I am putting up balloons because I am part of a group called ERT we help plan events and different things like that.

In this next picture I am sitting with my friend Kim from work eating a wonderful BBQ dinner. I was a really great night to see all the kids in there Halloween costumes and be able to meet the people I work with families.

Tim Maxwell's Farewell

So I don't think I have mentioned yet that my brother in law Tim is going to Paris France for his mission. He is reporting to the MTC on Nov 5th. We are going to miss him so much but we know he is working for the Lord so it is totally worth it. Well today was his mission farewell. He gave such a wonderful and heart-felt talk he is going to be such an awesome missonary. Here are a few pictures ok well alot of pictures from the farewell. There was alot of friends and family there to see him maybe for the last time for the next 2 years!

First I am going to start with a picture of Tim and he is sitting with Jenny

General Conference weekend

It was so great to be able to sit and listen to the words of our Prophet and the speakers the general authorities asked to speak this year. One of my favorite parts was listening to the Primary children sing I love to see the temple. I cried the entire song. It makes me feel so great inside to know how wonderful all those children are and you can tell by the way they sing how much they love our Heavenly Father.

Another thing we do on conference weekend is get together with Brian's extended family. We usually meet at his Grandma Maxwell's house but this year we were at his Aunt Jane's house. It is something they have done for a long time and I hope the tradition continues. I really love to go because it is great to catch up with his family. He has tons of cousins and of course they have kids of there own now. So it is great to hang out with them and there children and of course his aunts and uncles. Well I was going to put up some pictures but they aren't working. So sorry no pictures :(

Surprise at work

So this morning I got into work and this is what I found at my desk.

I had been taged by the Halloween Ghost. Like I said I love this time of year so I was pretty excited to see my desk like this. That just means I am all set with decorations at work and I just need to get some stuff for the house now!
