Three's a Party

We usually go grocery shopping every Monday to get everything for the week and carrying the groceries from the car to the elevator and down the hall to our room is quite the work out. One day we lucked out and found a cart by the elevator- so we loaded up the groceries, and pushed the cart all the way into the kitchen, and then proceeded to take pictures in it :)

We went to Las Vegas the weekend before Halloween to relax. We shopped, ate a lot of muffins, played with my adopted little siblings (Sam's siblings), and had so much fun. We figured that Las Vegas had a better selection of Halloween costumes to choose from and we had a lot of fun in the Halloween store.

After our ward's neon Halloween party. Long story short- the party ended extremely early and we ended up back at our apartment taking jumping pictures and watching a movie.

(which was amazing)
&of course- Dr. Pepper for the way home

Catching Up..

I have been trying to finish blogging about the summer before I did current things but I seem to just keep getting more and more behind. So as much as I would love to do all the full blogs and write all the details, I am going to quickly get caught up, well at least through the end of summer.

Amy, Clara, Andrew, Erica and I had a massive car wash one day where we washed 6 cars. It was quite the production, with lots of water fights, bubbles, and fun.

My whole family. It was the first time all of us have been together since before Andrew's mission. Sara and Ben flew done for Sara's birthday and it was so fun to all be together.

All the girls

This summer Donovan, Andrew, Amy and I played tennis almost every morning. We played at 7 am and I don't know how we got up every morning. It was always Andrew and Donovan against Amy and I, and Amy and I always won. This was our last day of the summer playing tennis, up in Utah. It was our final championship game, and we played for lunch. We won, so the lunch at Cafe Rio was on the boys :)
