Here's a little video of Mabel I meant to include in the last post. She's doing what she does best. Dancing around like a crazy person as she sings "Ashy, ashy" (Ring Around the Rosies). Love that girl!

Last Sunday we had Thanksgiving with Doug's family since his parents left on Monday to be the area auditors in Brazil for 2 years. It was nice to see them one last time and fun to have Thanksgiving early!
Here's the crowd at dinner. We are quite the group! That's Lilly clear down at the other end of the table.

Last night we carved our pumpkins to get ready for Halloween! These first two are actually from a few weeks ago from when my parents were kind enough to watch our kids one night. They carved pumpkins with Grandpa and loved it! I love how Lilly went for a traditional pumpkin face

Last week we were lucky enough to have one of Doug's companions and his sweet wife visit us all the way from Sweden! It was such a fun couple of days and we wished we could have spent more time with them! The first day they were here we went up to Salt Lake to tour the conference center (never done that before, it was awesome) and temple square. After that we headed to city creek for a little window shopping and a delicious lunch at Cheesecake Factory. I think the restaurant did it's job at being completely overwhelming to them. After lunch we headed to the church history museum. It was fun to be there because they had the annual art competition going on and it was awesome to see all of that amazing art! The girls had fun playing in the kid are feeding the missionaries.
The next day we headed up to Provo to show them the temple(s) and MTC and BYU campus. We shopped at the bookstore for a little while and then took them to DI (best place in Provo and tourist destination for sure!). Then we went to Brick Oven for lunch (we made sure to tell them the way we'd been eating the past few days was not normal).
Later that day we headed down to Wales for conference. It was fun but there were spooky things like these huge spiders! These pictures do not do these guys justice. They're seriously huge!

Just wanted to post some of our latest spooky creations. Some friends invited us over the other night to decorate some pumpkins (and take a few (dozen)) home. Here's how our girls turned out.
