Halloween & Lobster

Holden the Monkey & Owen the Dragon Halloween Night

AK & Tyler

Annette & Tyler

We had a very eventful Halloween season. We hit the scarecrow festival (so great, my favorite), Red Butte, the Beacon Heights Carnival, our ward "Harvest Festival", and Kate's annual kid party! We loved trick or treating and the candy still survives as a great treat bribe! Tyler surprised us all with a visit and 10 live Boston lobster (Dorchester lobsters to be exact, or so I believe). It has been many years since we have seen him. It was fun for the boys to put a name with a face and see how tall they may be someday! It was fun that Andy (at almost 6'3) looked really short next to his big brother.
I have just been in Houston for a long weekend Junior League training thing. I know a lot more about fundraising now. We stayed at the Houston Galleria Westin, the Galleria is a mall on par with South Coast Plaza and the biggest Louis Vuitton store I have ever seen. I convinced everyone to hit my favorite dining places that we don't have in SLC, Cheesecake Factory & Daily Grill. I was too tired to do much shopping but I really liked the David Yurman jewelry (hint, hint, I wish). I am getting ready for the drive to the OC tomorrow for Darcy's wedding. I can't wait to see the California family, and I saved up my shopping ammo for there. I am emphatically grateful for my babysitters JoJo, Robert, Linny, & Dori, who will be tending! The boys are excited, but I am nervous and sad to leave them again so soon. I will get over it.

The boys were so great with us and I miss them already! (Dori took over my "shift" at about 3 today.) Have fun in CA! Love you! -Jocelyn
