Halloween 2009!

For Halloween this year , Todd and I thought it would be funny to be Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy. We don't really know how we decided on it. It just kind of happened. Here are just some pics to compare.

And here is us...

Ha Ha!

I think Todd pulled off a great Malfoy!

As far as me... I just looked funny with really short black hair. :)

This next picture I tried to reenact a scene in the 4th Harry Potter- if your a fan, you'll probably recognize what I'm talking about. (How did I do?)

We had a lot of fun. And the funny thing about all of this is... we're not even really big fans of Harry Potter and we've never read the books!
Ha ha.
Oh well!
Maybe some day :)

Some scenery pics

I love this time of year when the tree's just begin to change colors.
So beautiful!
I love seeing the green leaves mixed with the red, yellow, and orange leaves!

Fall is my favorite time of the year!

Then of course as winter comes creeping up, so does the rain! Followed by beautiful rainbows! I took these next pictures in Salem.

I love seeing the soft colors of a rainbow!
Then come the SNOW!

I LOVE our mountains! Aren't we so lucky to live in such a beautiful place where we can experience all the seasons!!!


This post is WAY long over due...

September 30th came around and we all had to say goodbye to our little brother Branden. He was called to serve a mission in Ventura California, Spanish speaking. We were all so excited for him and know he will be a great missionary! We already miss him so much and are so proud of him! This is a pic I took of him right before he left to go the the MTC.
Right after saying goodbye to Branden, me and my family took a small trip down to St. George where we got to see the play "Aida" at the Tuacahn theater. While the girls went shoping, the guys went golfing. Here is a pic of Todd showing off his great golfing moves.
Then on Saturday and Sunday we all hung out at the Condo where we watched General Conference. (Dalen is such a poser!)
During the St. George trip, Todd and I found some time to sneak off to Vegas! (Wahoo!) Where we got to walk the strip and see my cousin Brent. Here are just some pics of us enjoying that evening.

Bellagio and the fountain show! So cool!

While walking through one of the Casino's we saw this slot machine, and just had to take a picture of it. It was HUGE!

And then this is just a pic of me I thought turned out kind of cool. :)

We had a lot of fun and plan on going back to St. George next May to see Brain Regan perform. Maybe we'll hit up Las Vegas again! :) Any takers???
