Utah Halloween

So, I decided to be ambitious and make good food for Halloween this year. I realize Halloween is actually tomorrow but, hey, it's the Sabbath and this is Utah. I made...
Bolognese sauce
and crescent rolls with delicious spices inside.
Our friends Lonnie and Amber came over to eat before they went to the Howl. It was fun to visit with them and socialize. Earlier, Alex came by with some friends before they went to the Howl. It's my second Halloween here and I still don't really have any interest in attending the Howl.

Earlier this week James and I carved pumpkins at our friends' house, Seth and Lisa. James' pumpkin is on top and mine is on the ground.
And attempting to capture the jack-o-lanterns with my sometimes shoddy camera.
Happy Halloween!

One more thing! We had a trick or treater! One! It was a good thing we bought that bag of candy!

As promised...

First up, macaroons. I made another batch for General Conference. I think they look lovely and they were delicious.We got our wedding photos, courtesy of Becky at Ravenberg Photography. I tried to load more onto the blog but it wouldn't work. Enjoy this one!

I am very sorry for the next picture. It is probably the MOST unflattering picture of myself I have ever seen. I look like I've gained 50lbs. Not so, just a really awful pose, dress and expression. James, however, looks great! He made a very cute Mario.
From the same family Halloween party, my cupcake. I thought it was very cute.
Next up, photos from Fall break. We went to California for the baby blessing of Waylon, son to Liz and John. Liz is James' sister. We were very glad they waited for Fall break so we could all be there.
Unfortunately, another unflattering picture. Seriously, why do I pose like this??? It gives me the illusion of big hips!
The Haunted Mansion, all dolled up courtesy of the Nightmare Before Christmas.
James' parents dressed up for Mickey's Trick or Treat party. I highly recommend going during October during the special openings. There aren't as many people, the people that are there are in costume (mostly) and there is candy! Any how, back to Brent and Melanie, AKA Bert and Mary Poppins.
James was very excited to see...
Waiting in line for a ride...
Me in front of the castle.
And another shot of my cute in-laws at the end of the night.
School is going well, busy but well. The shop has started working on Midsummer, it's going to be a lot of work but we're totally cut out for it. Busy, busy times.

I promise that I will blog about the following things:
  • round two of macaroon madness
  • official wedding pictures by the talented Becky at Ravenberg Photography
  • grad school projects
  • fall break time with family
  • DISNEYLAND and California
Our computer has been in the shop so I haven't been able to blog like I've wanted to. Although I guess I could use our Wii, it's sort of time consuming to type using the controller. I made macaroons for Conference and we're flying to California tomorrow for a baby blessing.

Have I mentioned how excited I am for my sister and her family? Really excited.

More later...hopefully.
