It's been awhile since I've posted. I am still without the internet, I am at my in-laws blogging. It's nice to have family that live close by.

Well the weather has been quite enjoyable this past week. It is cool in the mornings and evenings and warm, not necessarily hot, during the afternoons. Scott loves to wear his jacket in the morning on our way to school and work, but is disappointed when it is warm when I pick him up, b/c he wants to wear it. Silly kid. I am now starting to build up his winter wordrobe. It won't get cold until like mid-November so I still got time.

Well we are preparing for Halloween this year. Scott is really excited to wear his costume that he picked out. Last year he didn't quite understand that you dressed up for the holiday, so this year it is really exciting. He will be Optimus Prime, from Transformers. I found a fun witch costume with an awesome wig to go with it. Matt said that he will be dressing up as a lumberjack, b/c that is what they will be doing for work. Simple enough for him. We are looking forward to our ward Halloween party, which will be a blast. I will post pictures of the event in a later post. I've been helping my friend Rhonda sew a Cinderella costume for her daughter. It is turning nicely. I guess that is all for now.

Another Catching Up Post

Okay so I still don't have internet so I am using my friend's. I will have internet access next week with a new company. Yeah!!

So on Monday night the upstairs apartment started leaking. At first I thought that it was the fire sprinkler leaking so I called the front office and they came right away and first checked up stairs. Our neighbor had put in her large comforter in the washer and it didn't allow the water to drain. So naturally it started to leak and built up and started leaking out of the fire sprinkler in our hall bath. Luckily I caught it in time or else our aparment would've been soaked. It was leaking in the little laundry room that we had and through the vents. Not fun. The office called the carpet cleaners to come and get the situation under control. Well for 2 days we had a dehumidifier in our tiny hallway getting rid of all the moisture that had built up. So I took some pictures of the eventful evening.

Relief Society Broadcast

On Saturday night I attended the Relief Society Broadcast with my friend Rhonda. She is a recent convert who Matt now home teaches. I always love hearing the General Relief Society presidency talk about motherhood and our roles as women of the church. After the broadcast our Stake provided a dinner served by the young men of the stake. It was so much fun to sit and talk w/ my friends from the ward and catch up without being interrupted by children screaming or crying for attention. Since this was Rhonda's first broadcast we all asked her what she thought and she said was really inspired and she enjoyed. I just love being a member of the church!

I encourage anyone who reads this blog to please post a comment. I like to hear what people think.
