October- a brief summary :)

I have always enjoyed October- leaves different colors. The excitement of the start of the Holiday's. Birthdays. October is always a busy month for us- so here is a brief summary of our time.

The following pic is from the birthday party with Sam's family for both Sam and Nate. This is William (the cutest nephew ever) playing with the Hulk hands Sam's mom gave him. It was a wonderful weekend. We were able to watch conference- which is always calming and a blessing, enjoy a nice drive up Cedar Canyon in our new truck (pics coming), spend time with the family, and learn that we get to be uncle and aunt to another baby in a few months! We are truly blessed!

A couple weekends ago the weather was so warm Sam took me to the driving range! Doesn't he look like a pro!! Perhaps he will get updated clubs for Christmas... if anyone knows a good place to look let me know :)

Then, Halloween weekend we went to Tuacahn and saw "Thriller." It was quite enjoyable! We were then able to spend time with Nate, Mel, and Will- it was fun to have him all to ourselves :) We had lunch with Craig, Diana, and Cayson- I just have to say he had the cutest expressions (Sam just couldn't get over how he would sigh, look so serious, and hold his head in his hands). Then we were able to head up over the mountain to Orderville and spend time with Jeff, Jenna, and Dallin. They are doing so well and Jenna really has their house decorated up nice. Dallin was the sweetest guy- we sure enjoyed our time with them!

After all that we headed for the family cabin to spend the night and Sunday morning with Sam's dad. On the way there was a controlled burn, and of course Sam had to stop and take pics (which would be the reason my car still smells like smoke :). Here is my picture of the fire... well actually of Sam taking pictures of the fire!

And the fire:

It was a great weekend! It sure was nice to catch up with friends and family! We sure love you guys!!
