Candy, candy and more candy...

We had a darling pirate,
A cutie cowgirl,
And Taylor got very creative and came up with an 'Incredibles' costume at the last minute.
This was the only picture I have of Taylor, but it is a bonus because she is holding 2 day old Max (our friends Mike and Hillary's third little boy)!

Then our neighbor came up with this freaky costume and I had to add it at the end:
Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!

Relections of Christ

For many years the Mesa Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mesa, AZ) has exhibits on the temple grounds during the Easter season.

This year, there was also a 'Reflections of Christ' photography exhibit in the Mesa Temple Visitor's Center.

The photographer was given permission to photograph Pageant cast members for the exhibit.  They traveled to various locations in Arizona that the photographer felt looked like the places in Israel where the events took place and recreated the scenes.

The photographer worked with a few other individuals to put together a 6 minute slide show which includes every image from the exhibit set to the hymn 'Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.'

Just remember when you're watching the video that the photographs are real, they aren't paintings!

Remember to maximize the video so you can see it full screen.  You can expand the screen to fit your entire computer screen for a better view by clicking on the lower right hand square icon (next to the volume).

Subway II

Saturday, Sept. 27, Steve and the gang hiked the Subway again.  I was not feeling so hot and Morgan had pink eye, so I did not go.  Here is a few of the peeps:  Chase, Chris (friend), Bret, Susan, Steve, David and Christine (David's girlfriend---I hope I spelled it correctly!)  There was actually 14 in the entire group.  When Steve makes plans, he does it big.  He's just a friendly kind of guy.
Susan and Bret, still smiling...
Dave and Christine, still smiling...
And a couple of show offs...keep in mind this water is FREEZING!
also known as "how to rip up a good pair of shorts"

Happy Birthday, Morgan!

Today was Morgan's 5th birthday.  She started if off with a bowl of her favorite chocolate cereal.  Then off to preschool, where she was given a red crown and cupcakes with sprinkles.  Mom picked her up and took her to toy heaven:  Wal-Mart.  She picked out a baby duck toy and a playdoh ice cream factory.  She also selected a Spongebob cake.  She wore the red birthday crown the entire time and received lots of attention.  Then off to a hotdog and pink lemonade lunch with dad.  
She talked to her grandparents in the Philippines via the computer, and played with her new toys.  Then her favorite dinner, SPAGHETTI!  Finally, best of all---blowing out the candles on the cake.  She said she wished for a real pony.
We love you Morgan!  You are a joy to our family!
