I'm back on the blogging band wagon!!

Well... It has been so long since my last post that I figured the best thing to do would be to begin where I left off! Here it goes, it might be long!
Mark and I went to Kauai in October ( I was really bad about taking pictures, I have a few,but they are on the lap top. We had a great time and wish we were there now being that it is -35 with the wind chill!) We got back t 2:00 halloween day! This is Sam and I trick or treating if you look close you'll see that I am unusually tan for this time of the year!
Shaina, Dallin and Sam in their costumes! We have sure gotten a lot of milage out of the M and M costumes! I am pretty sure that everyone except Russell and Sam have worn them. We just took the kids around Blue Quill Estates, they got too much candy and were very HAPPY!!!

As soon as Halloween was over Brenda and I went full steam ahead to get ready for "The Writing on the Wall" Christmas open house. The above pictures are a few of the designs we came up with for this year. We had a very successful season and are already looking forward to next year! I always say that one of the perks of doing this business is that I  have my house all decorated long before Christmas is here. Their was a day when I would shake my head at people who put up Christmas decorations before December. Now I have it up before Remembrance Day and I love it!!!
I am on the Activities Committee in our ward and we had our Ward Christmas party on December 3rd. We did "A night in Bethlehem" It was a lot of work but well worth the effort. I know a good time was had by all!! Here we have Mark and Sam dressed in their "Biblical" attire. Don't they look cute?! 

On December 13th I hosted a Bridal Shower for Tyler Fairbanks new bride Kristine. It was a bitter cold night but I was just amazed at how many people came to show their support to Georgeanne. Kristine is a great girl and will fit so nicely into the Fairbanks family. Sorry I don't have any pictures to share, I guess I was too busy trying to be a good hostess!
We also went to their wedding which was just this past Saturday night. It was a nice evening and we got to visit with our Fairbanks cousins who came up from Calgary for the wedding.

Mark and I celebrated Mark's birthday on the 16th and our anniversary on the 19th! Sorry no pics again! I just don't think about these things! I'll try to do better over the holidays.

That is the update! I will be back soon!!
