Cold Trunk or Treat


This past weekend, we had a very unusual storm here.  It snowed!  In October!  Now all my family and friends in Utah are going to laugh at that statement, but it’s been over 30 years since it snowed here in October.  So it was a big deal!

And, if you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, you know that we go out in the weather all the time.  This time was no exception.  Our church was having their annual truck or treat and we weren’t going to miss that!

It was cold though.  It was also cold when we went to the church barn dance and chili cook off after.  But everyone wore their costumes and their coats and had a great time, I think!

Passing out headbands Halloween 2011

That is me in my big blue cape handing out Just Dance 3 headbands instead of candy.  Thanks to the Clever Girls, they were a hit!


PS- Is it bad the boys are STILL wearing their costumes from Monday?  Maybe I should mention that the costumes are pajamas that I bought them.  Maybe it’s time to peal them off and wash.  Something.

QOTW: Football


This week at the Multiples and More site the question was on football.

College football to be exact.

Now, for those who REALLY know me, know that I don’t care for football.

Oh I don’t mind it.  If someone is watching, I can watch too.  I went to all the high school football games (to flirt with the boys and not watch the game) and I did record college football games on tape at one time.  Why?  A boy I liked played in the marching band and I wanted to see if I could see him on tv.


Dad, stop laughing.


The question this week!  College football!

What team do you root for and why?

I root for BYU.  Rise and shout, the cougars are out!

Both Juice and I went there so it’s only natural that we would take an interest in their football season.  And their toffee peanuts.  And their mint brownies.

I think they won yesterday, by the way.  The football team, not the food.  The food there is a winner every day.

I’m just happy that the football team won too.


PS- That adorable baby is mine…Butterfly makes the best BYU cheerleader!


Question of the Week: Pictures


This week on the Multiples and More blog is all about Halloween.  Halloween pictures to be exact.

And since you (hopefully) saw the kids yesterday, I’ll show you me and Juice today!

Way Back When-Day: Halloween Costumes


Playing along with Cheryl from Twinfatuation this week.

This is Butterfly’s 4th Halloween and the boys’ 1st.  Butterfly was a princess (again) and the boys were teddy bears.  So cute!  Butterfly helped me paint the boys’ faces.  She had the best time trick or treating at our church’s truck or treat. 

I had a good time eating the boys’ candy from it!
