Our cute trick-or-treaters

My neighbor, Kari, brought her adorable little girls over to trick-or-treat at our house first. This was the little one's first time ever to trick-or-treat. Don't you just love Kaitlyn and Kiana's matching kitty costumes? What precious little ones they are. Look closely and you'll see Max and Cole in the background as the next ones to come to our front porch for treats. We had more than 120 trick-or-treaters show up this year!
Here we have Eric and Katie, our other neighbors. These are the most well-mannered children. Every day, Christopher rides to school with them in the mornings, and every afternoon, I bring them all home. These kids are so enjoyable and I'm happy to have the few minutes in the car with them each day. They really make my day! Eric and Christopher have the same teacher this year and also did last year.
Christopher is posing in front of Jonathan's house. Jonathan is one of his good friends down the street. Christopher decided to be the next best thing this year when his first choice of costume was out of stock. He and Lindsey decided they wanted to be like their mom and dad, and use parts of our costumes from last week's party that we attended to be Batman and Robin. That works for me!
Here we are in the lobby at Kelly's work for the annual trick-or-treating day at Daddy's work.
The kids love visiting their dad's office, especially on Halloween. After leaving his work, we stopped by to eat dinner at Rudy's, then home for the neighborhood trick-or-treating. Sue's son, Preston, was our cashier at Rudy's, so that was a treat to see him in action at work.

I love that your kids were mini versions of you guys. Good stuff. I can't wait til I live in a home and have trick or treaters!

Wow - 120 trick or treaters! How fun! We don't get that many at our house so I'm jealous.

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party!

Hopefully this title, Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party, does not sound irreverent, because as an Activity Days leader, I felt compelled to come up with a fun end-of-the-summer event that is also uplifting, and after all, who doesn't love a splash in the pool on a hot day in August?  My current church calling, or official role that I volunteer for, allows me to plan two activities each month for girls ages 8 to 11, that will encourage them to learn and live the gospel, serve others, and use the talents Heavenly Father has given them, to learn to do many good things.  This year's seminary course of study for high school students is The Book of Mormon, and since I am a huge fan of this inspired book of scripture, I came up with this idea to have each girl show up to my house with a written summary of one of her favorite stories from within its many pages, and share it with the rest of the girls, while outside in our swimsuits near our backyard swimming pool!  As each girl shares…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
