Yesterday was a pretty good day! We had primary program practice & the kids did pretty good. They have their parts memorized and are excited about it for next week!

Just as we were leaving, the Elder's Quorum President pulls Ben aside and tells him they'd like to come visit us this week because they have an assigment for Ben because of his unique talents. WHAT??? Now THAT is going to drive him nuts for several days!!! It's probably something really simple, but why do they have to do that? Can't they just tell us right there? C'mon! UGH the suspense! hahaha


After church, we watched Journey to the Center of the Earth together and Ben made popcorn {which made the kids very excited}! We all thought the movie was good! Very cute & interesting!

Then, we took a walk and ended up at Grandma & Grandpa Call's house for a little while. {The whole say there, Ashley & Anson were holding hands & were SO CUTE!!! Where is my camera at a time like that?} My Mom was so nice and shared pumpkin pie with everyone! I was the only one who didn't have any but only because my stomach was hurting. All the kids got to *trick-or-treat* again because my parents still have some remaining candy.

When we left, we stopped at the park on the way home. We all had FUN playing! Just before we were done, Ben & I were swinging & had Ashley & Felicia on our laps. Just as I was telling Felicia to get ready to jump off, suddenly we heard a loud THUMP and saw Ashley looking up & spitting sand out of her mouth! She was jumping off Ben's lap but her boot got caught and she belly flopped into the sand! Ahhhh luckily she wasn't hurt because Ben & I couldn't stop laughing! For once, she didn't throw a fit because we were laughing. Ben took her to the drinking fountain to rinse out her mouth! Then she was fine.

Came home for the kids to get cleaned up & no one was really hungry {from eating so much pie, think Ben, Nathaniel & Felicia had 2 slices, and the kids were eating candy too}. So, I lucked out & didn't have to make dinner. Just munched on a few crackers & cheese.

Ben left early this morning to go to jury duty. Hope he doesn't get stuck there all day. He's really needed a day off from work because he's been working extra days. As it turns out, Julie is at the same jury duty as Ben! How wild is that? LOL :) Good Luck you two!!

***EDIT*** The case was settled out of court, so they were ALL excused early! WOOHOO!!!

Gotta go get dressed...my Mom & I want to go check out Hobby Lobby in a little bit.

HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!

Hi! My name is Siouxsie and I somehow ran across you on NSD and go to enjoy some of your designs. Then, today, I go to read your blog and see that you're Mormon, too! :-) It's a small world...and a big church. Hee, hee. We just did our program yesterday and it was sweet but I'm just mostly glad it's over. (I'm in the presidency.) So, I thought I just had to say hi and tell you I'm enjoying your blog & loving your designs.

Sounds like a great weekend and especially taking time to just play at the park. Despite the little accident. :(

I am sure Julie will have a great story to share about jury duty!

Have fun at Hobbly Lobby, it's on my list of things to do this week too!

Checking out HOBBY LOBBY was fun! Lots of ideas of upcoming projects, etc. It was also fun running into Becky's Mom - - haven't seen her in forever! Lunch at Subway was yummy too - - I never get tired of their sandwiches! Dad says he can help you out on that little "frame" project.

It's always fun having ya'll stop by when you're on a walk - - glad I still had a little candy left for the "trick-or-treaters" and that you didn't have to fix much dinner last night. Come on by any time!

Glad Ashley was OK. My kids always say "don't laugh" when something like that happens - which of course makes me laugh even more! I love all of your designs - I wish I knew how to Scrapbook digitally. I'm still old school with the paper & stuff. (I just barely figured out how to blog & I'm not so great at that yet either!!) :)
