I was sick all week and always felt too tired to blog. But I have some random pictures from the week that I’ll post here with captions.
Before those, though, I need to summarize yesterday. Yesterday was my favorite Saturday I have ever had! Saturdays are always a tug between all of the fun we want to do, our desire to rest, and our need to clean the house before Sunday. Balancing those three components perfectly always feels out of reach. But yesterday, we magically got the house tidied, took a long nap, and spent the evening doing fun things.
We ended up eating dinner at the Spaghetti Factory. As we were sitting there with our children, Abe and I realized we haven’t gone out to eat with all three of our children in a looooong time. We had such a happy, peaceful, lovely time. Abe and I could not get over how perfect the day felt.

On Friday I was in charge of the mummy wrapping activity for Lydia’s school’s Halloween party. She was the only kid who wanted to be wrapped that didn’t have a chance to get wrapped. I promised her that when we got home I would let her play with the neighbors and get wrapped by them.
At the ward Halloween party there were two Snow Whites!
Random cute baby at the party. I have no idea who these people are, but I loved the costume.
My friend Jenny was Dolores Umbridge.
There was face painting.
Lydia was a detective.
This is the pie eating contest.
Abe prepared for the pie eating contest by donning a garbage bag.
Abe and Ammon took selfies today at church.
We carved pumpkins after church.
