We had to walk fifty million miles once we were off Trax to get to the temple lights because we got on the wrong train so we wouldn't have to wait 15 minutes for the next. We were freezing cold by the time we got to Temple Square! So we went in the visitors center and got warm and listened to some people playing flutes! I liked this Christmas tree so we took pictures by it!
Then we started walking around the Temple. It was so cold but I wanted some cute pictures so no one would out their hats on until I got my pictures. Everyone froze to death but I got my cute pictures! They are even more cute because you can see the temple behind us in a couple of them.
Daniel doesn't like to take pictures where you are just smiling so we took a cute/funny one as well. I know he liked that since he got to have fun in the picture.
We got a group picture of all of us together but it is a little blurry since the person who took it didn't hold very still and I am bummed! but you can still tell who we all are. That might be my best friend-in-law one day. Its a good possibility.
I really wanted to take a picture next to some blue lights and this is as close as we got. They were a light green with little light blue also. They were cute enough for me to want pictures by!
Here are all the dorks bundled up after the pictures! They all put on their beanies and they said they were warmer. I of course didn't believe them and I left my hat just the way it was because it looked cute :)
This is Shelly and My famous picture. We always have to get one. Even on my wedding day she made me stop and pose like this for one.
After the Temple we went to get frozen yogurt at Frogurt! It is the yummiest yogurt place ever. We are crazy though because we went out for yogurt after being in the freezing cold for over an hour! It was just too good to pass up! So after our double date Daniel and I talked and decided Neil is good enough for Shelly and we are happy she finally met someone that treats her how she should be treated. Also, I decided that I am never riding Trax again, its dirty!

Daniel is almost done with school and we have decided to take a week off work at the end of December which will be nice. Daniel's best friend Josh is coming home from the Navy for 17 days and so we will look forward to spending some time with him. My cousin Stevie is getting married Dec 26 and I will get to see the Twin Falls, ID temple which I am excited for. Then of course Christmas is also at the end of December. I have quite a bit to look forward to in December and I will post more pictures soon! Also of our house at Christmas time with our TREE!!??! I put it up Nov 29 and I absolutely love it! Well ta ta for now! :)

Anyway, after my eventful day shopping on Saturday I began working on my dress Sunday. I cut out all the pattern pieces that I needed and began to cut out some of the fabric. Once I was finished doing that cutting it was late and time for bed. I worked Monday and after work went and picked Maddie up to come help me with my costume. She did most of the cutting while I did the pinning and sewing. I had a Simplicity pattern and let me tell you how not simple they are. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to read in all of my life and I am a good reader. It took me all night Monday to get the bodice sewn together. I wanted to rip it up and burn it by the time it was finally together with the lining and all!
Jelaire dressed up as a Lady Bug. I don't think she has ever been something ugly, scary or evil for Halloween. She is always something cute, pretty and nice. We are always opposite ha ha.
My sewing partner and one of my best friends Maddie and her husband Jakob came to the party. Jakob and I have been friends forever, I am actually how they met :) They were mobsters. You should have seen her shoes they were awesome with brass knuckles as the heels.
Jessica, Jen and Baby Ashton stopped in for a while. They are friends of the family and we love love love it when they have time to come and see us! They are sisters and Ashton is Jens baby. He is so cute! Don't you just want to kiss his cheeks? I sure do!! I told Daniel that next year we should be Mr. and Mrs. Incredible and steal baby Ashton for Jack-Jack :) look at the head it says Jack-Jack all over it. Then my sister said Jen should be Violet and all we would need is a Dash!! Happy little family.
Halloween is just about over. Here is a picture of our costumes again. You can see my shoes and tights in the picture with Jelaire and Kelly.
Here is a close up of what we look like as The Queen of Hearts and The Mad Hatter.
We were so tired at the end of the night and Jen decided to put herself in the hat that we made and we all though it was hilarious!! I mean look at it ha ha ha!
When everyone went home all the family stayed up until 2 in the morning watching The Nightmare Before Christmas. "This is Halloween, this is Halloween lalala lalala lalalalala" Then we called it a night! Now to start planning for next year so I don't stress myself out at the last minute. We have a couple options one is to be The Riddler and Poison Ivy from Batman and Maddie and Jakob will be Harley Quinn and The Joker. So far that is the one we are considering the most, but we have a year to decide.
Daniel and I will be celebrating our 2 year anniversary this coming Monday and we are pretty excited about that! Then New Moon is out in theaters on the 20th. After that it will be Thanksgiving...not my favorite holiday since I am a vegetarian, but I like the quality family time and also planning Black Friday!! Woot Woot!! I can't wait for that! Anyway I need to get going have a wonderful November!!

Snow!!! Yes I said it snow! It is falling from the sky coming down and probably screaming my name to torture me! I do not like snow, don't get me wrong it makes things beautiful but the thought of having to drive on it seriously gives me a stomach ache! Driving in it makes me sick and by the time I get to my destination I am so sick to my stomach I have to spend 30 minutes in the bathroom because driving had worried me so much. This year Daniel went and had snow tires put on my car for safety purposes but I just want a new vehicle. I want a SUV preferably a Lexus RX I probably wont be getting it but I can wish right? We do plan on getting me an SUV before we have kids but that isn't for a couple years. Anyway, enough about me being terrified of the snow.
Daniel and I were sealed on October 17, 2009. We were so grateful that we were finally able to go through the temple together. There were so many loved ones there to share the experience with us. We are now stuck with each other forever :) We wouldn't have it any other way. We just got the pictures back from the day we got sealed so I decided I would post a little about the day and put up the pictures. There are many more pictures on my Facebook account then on here since I try to limit the amount of pictures I post on our Blog. Daniel's Aunt Helen came in from Louisiana for our sealing and we were so blessed to be able to have her there. There was quite the turn out at both the sealing and the dinner of both friends and family to support us. We are very grateful to those people who were able to attend and who did everything they could do to spend that day with us. It is such a special time for Daniel and I and for both of our families because now I am eternally linked to his family and he is eternally linked to mine. We will be forever with each other and with the others families. Pretty special huh? We missed all the people who could not attend and we know that there were many people with us that day in spirit. We have some pretty awesome friends and family!!
This is Us with Daniel's sister Nicole. She drove from Ephraim to be here for us on this very special day and we are both grateful she showed her love and support by being at the temple that day.
This is us with my siblings My brother in law: Kelly, Sister: Jelaire, Brother: Chaz and other brother: Brock. Their ties are pretty cool huh?? Meant to match :)
This is my family with my Grandma Helen outside of the temple after our sealing.
Once again my family but this time with my Aunt Susie and Cousin Nathan
Daniel's Family: His Aunt and Uncle with their children
I love this picture of Daniel and I It will probably be our Christmas picture.
The dip :) LOVE!!!
This day was very special for Daniel and I both and we are happy it could happen. Since then we have been continuing with our daily lives with work and school. Daniel just finished midterms last week and he is now back full time at Wingers with me. He is a trained Manager and will be able to step in as a manager whenever needed. So he is a server full time and a fill in manager which is perfect for us because then I don't have to transfer Wingers. If he was a full time Manager then we would not be able to work with each other. Wingers is getting busier and we are loving that. Halloween is Saturday and the costumes are coming along. I still have a ton to do for both of them so I am praying I will finish in time for Halloween!! I will post sometime after Halloween. Until then have a great week and a fantastic Halloween!! :)
