Halloween 2008!

Conner was a pizza:
Robbie was Link from Zelda:
And Alex and I were Miley Cyrus and Hannah Montana!
Since I came up with my costume by myself I am fairly proud of it and now I am going to montage the details:
Notice the ultra hip boots mailed to me by my true cowgirl aunt!
You can't really see here, but I had SUPER sparkly eye shadow going! It was quite possibly my favorite part! And don't forget my microphone!
My gold bangles and hoops! I really don't like gold jewelery, so these pretty much bugged me the entire night!
My super sweet belt that I made myself! I found this "material" at a fabric store and decided to turn it into a belt!
I kinda ran out of time to do my hair so I just tied some funky knots in it and called it good!
My true inner rocker definitely started to come out!

Halloween was a blast! Everyone could tell who I was - even most of the elderly knew! And I had one little girl convinced I really was Hannah Montana! She was so shocked that Hannah Montana knew her name! She was so cute! I had so much fun!

And for those of you who were wondering how my scar is looking: I think it's healing quite well actually! Hopefully it won't even be too noticeable soon!

Mega Post!

So I haven't posted in FOREVER! But now all of the sick kids are back at school, I am not substitute teaching, I am not on any trips, and I am not at the doctors, so I can finally post!

I went to New York on a girls trip and I learned that I never want to do that again. ever. It was the first time I had ever gone a single day without Jake since the day we met, and it was pretty much torture from beginning to end. Although the torture did pause while I was at Wicked and Mary Poppins!

Those are 2 of the 3 cousins on my side - Jackie and Laura.

I got a new calling as the YW Secretary and I have greatly enjoyed it thus far! We have had a mystery dinner night: (I was just the photographer so there weren't any of me, but I thought these guys looked great!)

We have gone ice blocking: (it was my first time and as you can tell I thoroughly enjoyed it!)
We went to the corn maze (on a very cold night) where I was the first to find my way out! This is my groups victory pose: My mom and I also took my brother Rob and my niece Echo to the park:
The above picture is Robbie being a stinker face because he didn't get his way.

Also, Jake and I are moving into our apartment soon! Soon meaning hopefully by this time NEXT WEEK!!! Hooray!

And I am being Hannah Montana for Halloween and Alex is being Miley Cyrus! Check back for pictures of how amazing we are sure to look!

I also discovered that my eye is REALLY blue! (and that I really need to shape my brows...)
