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.

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…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
