Halloween cupcakes


The family is heading to our church Halloween Carnival tonight. There's going to be a chili cook-off and trunk-or-treating. Apparently, there were too many volunteers to bring chili, and not enough for cupcakes. When the email arrived yesterday asking for volunteers to help out, I jumped at the chance to change my cooking efforts to the more sweet, fun choice. Who wouldn't? I love to make cupcakes! Should be a fun night out.

We had a lot of fun tonight. I would have taken pictures, but my battery died. There was plenty of chili and an excess of cupcakes, dozens of extras. Last year, they ran out, so this year was better. I tasted a cupcake when I got home and it was tasty.

The kids at the trunk or treat were so cute tonight. Gwen looked awesome, walking around in a little fish costume, I believe. She had her little boo bucket from the baby shower I had for her mom. Tyson and Avery looked adorable. Caleb looked so cute and green. Hannah made the hippest nerd ever. Kathrine was a beautiful prom queen. Livie was Batgirl and such a doll. Kaitlin rocked as an elephant with the sweetest manners. It's always so fun to see the kids in their costumes.

Jenny and Jared, always stylin' at Halloween, were Marge and Homer and looked hilarious.

I love the cupcakes, too bad I couldn't have been there to have one. Sounds like it was a good turn out.

I ended up making the cupcakes and they were a huge hit on Halloween night at our neighbor's house. I couldn't find any spiders though (note to self: buy them earlier next year) so I topped them with candy corn instead.

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…
