It's red ribbon week for Adam and today it's "I'm too smart to do drugs." He's so dang cute! Kinzie things he's a nerd sometimes. I think he's perfect! I love the tape on his glasses.
Thursday McKinzie sent this to me and said that maybe he'll be Tommy from Rugrats for Halloween. With his smile and so little hair he looks just like Tommy! I think she should do it.
Friday I made sugar cookies for the school's carnival on Saturday. I really enjoy making sugar cookies. I don't make them very often here since I can't take the them to class parties. They have so many restrictions for class parties.
CJ had fun at the carnival. He went through the haunted hall with friends and tried all the games while I helped out with the food. When it was time to go his friends kept giving us their last few tickets. We used them on the cake walk and I won! We brought home some hot chocolate cookies. They were yummy!
When I made the frosting Friday I used two egg yolks, so I had two eggs whites left over. I saved them and made divinity on Sunday. I've only made divinity once or twice. It turned out perfect. It were so good! Brian isn't a fan. Mason tried it and doesn't care for it. Carson likes it though. I'm glad he'll help me eat it. I did give some away to one of my visiting teaching sisters. But I've still had more than I should that's for sure.

I attended the temple this morning and thoroughly enjoyed my drive. And the temperature was perfect! I really hope our nice weather will hold out until Halloween. I would love if it wasn't freezing for trick or treating.
The temple was peaceful as usual. I really enjoy going during the day and I don't mind going by myself. Is that bad? Sometimes small talk is overrated. I had to laugh with I listened to Karlee's voicemail when I got out. "It's 11:00 on a Tuesday. Why is your phone off?!" Then a text came in and it read, "Enjoy the temple." She remembered the only time I turn off my phone is when I attend the temple. I called her back and she was at devotional. We caught up with each other eventually.

Today was absolutely beautiful. I'm loving all the fall leaves. I took this picture during recess.

Of course he's Harry Potter...
Mason and Ficher
This is how we honored Geoff's 30th birthday, on the 15th. He will always be our Superman! I'm thinking every year we should wear Superman shirts.
McKinzie wore Grateful Dead the day before since it was too hot on his birthday.
Overall I think McKinzie and her kids had a fun filled day. They did all things Crae. For food they had french toast, tacos and Razzoo's (all my favorites too). They went to a movie and Michael gave Retta and Adam a ride on Geoff's Harley. They even had cake and sang happy birthday. I think singing would have been hard.
It's still hard to believe he's been gone 4 months, on Monday. Everyday I see our family picture on the wall and I'm so grateful I followed through and had family pictures done last May when Karlee graduated. I almost dropped it since I was having a difficult time finding someone with reasonable prices. It truly was inspired.
