Helping Dad

Jase just got back from a week in Boise. I definately think that he was missed. Austin was very excited to be able to help his dad wax the pickup. Even though it was kind of cold outside, he needed a rag to help. I am so glad that he has the opportunity to learn from his dad.

I Voted!!

I did my civil duty this morning and voted. It is an exciting election this year. No matter how you vote, history will be made. I have to say that I will definately be glad when this election is over, but I am excited to watch tv tonight to see how it all turns out. Jase had to be out of town today so we had to do an absentee ballot for him. He voted a few days ago. I decided that next time, that is what I am going to do to. I had to take the boys with me today, and they were really good. They got stickers, balloons and cookies. They asked me on the way out if they could come back again. This is a special election for my mom this year too. It is the first time in her life that she will get to cast her ballot for the President of the United States of America. She just got her citizenship. I am so proud of her and very excited for her to have this opportunity.

Trunk or Treat

Trunk or treat 2008. Our new ward did the trunk or treat on Tuesday, so that everyone could still go trick or treating on Friday. It started at 6pm and this is Carter, Austin & Jase waiting for all the excitment. Notice the short sleeves and lack of winter clothing. It was a beautiful night. I can't ever remember trick or treating without coats, even when I was a kid. After the trunk or treat, they had drinks and games inside the church. It was a lot of fun.

Friday night we took the kids to a neighborhood and let them go door to door trick or treating. Macy was a little confused about what we were doing, and I had so much fun explaining to her that she was going to be trick or treating like I did as a kid. The first few houses they were pretty shy and unsure of what they were doing, but they caught on quick and it was fun to see their excitment as they caught the Halloween spirit. Jase and I walked with them, and it was such a nice night. Warm, no one even wore a jacket (Shocker!!!) What a fun Halloween we had this year.
