Happy Halloween!

Hunter had a great time Trick or Treating tonight! Especially at Grandma and Grandpa's because they gave him almost a bucketful of candy!! And a doughnut! LOL....

He was so adorable in his pumpkin outfit. We had such a wonderful time together. Last night we carved pumpkins together. Hunter tried to eat the pumpkin guts but he got his pumpkin carved. I carved my very first pumpkin!! Here are some pictures.

Heavenly Father MUST be Watching Over Me!!

Hunter and I went to Wal-Mart this afternoon to buy him a Halloween costume and some pumpkins to carve. On our way home, I had the biggest scare of my life! I was driving down Hunt Highway. There was a car in front of me that was getting ready to turn right so they merged over into the right turning lane. As they did that, a van pulled out right in front of me! I reacted and swerved into the oncoming lane because I didn't even have enough time to slam on the breaks! I had two choices, swerve or T-bone the van. I chose to swerve and by the grace of God, there was not a car coming in the other lane! I honestly believe I was being watched over at that moment. That chances of not having another car coming at that moment were very slim! Anyone who has ever driven down Hunt Highway would know this! I was terrified! I had to pull off the side of the road so that I could catch my breath! And the worst part is that the van just kept on going!!! Oohh, it just makes me want to scream!! I had my baby in the car with me!! If we would have collided, it would have been a horrible collision. I wasn't speeding, but I was going fast enough for the impact to be fatal. Either to us, or to the people in the van. Thank you Heavenly Father! I know my prayers are answered everyday when I feel his protection like this!

Happy Anniversary to Us!

Yesterday was Keith and I's 3 year anniversary. 3 years ago, from yesterday, we took vows to love each other through sickness and health, good times and bad times, forever. Our wedding was awesome. There was no stress and it was all about us. We got married in Vegas so we didn't have to spend outrageous amounts of money on venues, food, bridesmaids dresses, invitations, etc. We made the choice to make that day about "us" and not everyone else by hosting a gigantic wedding with all of our friends and family. We invited our families to come, but only our immediate families were able to make, which was awesome.

We had the ceremony at the famous Chapel of the Bells. It was a great choice, but an interesting day. A limo from the Chapel came to pick us up and take us to the courthouse for our marriage licsense. We had to stand in line for 2 hours. I remember the limo driver wanted to come back and get us and keep my dress in the trunk of the car! We ended up standing in line for 2 hours while holding my dress because I was afraid the driver would lose my dress! When we finally made it to the chapel, we had a funny experience with the person who married us. She was definitely not what we expected! First of all, she was a woman and second, she was about 90 years old! But she did a great job and her words made me cry. Inside the chapel was incredibly beautiful.

Anyway, here are some pictures of us on our wedding trip to Vegas! Happy Anniversary to my husband! I couldn't have found a better man to marry. I love him with all of my heart!

Arizona Fall Weather

Fall is my favorite time of year. I always want to decorate my house in fall colors and pumpkins and fill it with the scent of pumpkin pie! I love it! I always hear people say that Arizona does not have all 4 seasons, but that is absolutely not true! All they have to do is head up north to the White Mountains. The weather there in the Fall is quite possibly what heaven will be like. The beautiful aspen trees turning red, orange, and gold mixed with the chill in the air is breathtaking. The great part about it, is that it isn't cold! This is the only time of year that makes me miss good old Eagar, Arizona. I wish I could be there now, exploring the beauty of Escudilla mountain. For anyone who has never seen this amazing mountain, here are a few pictures.

I also love fall here in the San Tan Valley, where I live. It seems as though the atmosphere begins to change. The weather starts to cool down and people become friendlier and happier. Kids also become more managable at school because they are able to start playing outside. The wonderful part is that it's not hot but it's not cold. It's perfect! The fall is truly the greatest time of year!!

Stay at Home Moms…….

Are lucky!! I would give anything  to be able to stay home with my Hunter. It was such a wonderful break with Hunter. We played and spent all day together. Then Monday came and I had to take him back to the sitter and I think Hunter was upset. When we dropped him off he had this sad little look in his eyes that was almost unbearable. I just wanted to grab him back up and go home and cuddle. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my job! I just wish that I could put my job on hold, have kids, and then go back to work when the last one starts Kindergarten. That would be my dream!!

Finally on Break

Well, our Fall Break started last week but I decided to teach intercession for the first week, just to get some extra money. It was pretty easy and only 4 hours a day, but I am ready to spend some time with my baby!

The last day of intercession we decided to go to Morenci and visit Grandma and Grandpa Rogers, but I ended up getting sick with a horrible stomach bug. Needless to say, I made Keith bring us home because I was miserable. Keith ended up going back because he had to take the trailer and bring back our Rhino that left up there. So me and Hunter have had the day to spend together. Just me and him! We've had so much fun.

I took him out in the backyard and we ran through the sprinklers. He loved that. Then we went to the park and Hunter played like crazy! I couldn't get him to come down. When we got home we made sugar cookies and decorated them together. I think he ate more sprinkles, instead of decorating with them. But we had a great time together. I'm looking forward to spending a whole week with him!
