Well everyone I have my new favorite item. It is called a slanket! It stands for a sleeved blanket. It just wraps around the back. I had never heard of it before until about a week ago when I saw it in a magazine and pointed it out to Drew, and said how cool it was. As it turns out Drew and already ordered me one a few days earlier as an early Christmas gift. He had seen a picture of it in an airplane magazine a month ago. I always complain how blankets don't keep my arms warm if I need to type or work on something. He knows me so well!
Oh and if you didn't know, we keep our house pretty cold so that's why having a slanket will be so great!

Halloween Festivities

Halloween was really fun this year. First of all we went to the trunk or treat at our ward and dressed up as a fairy and an Oger (sp?). I entered my chili into the chili cook off, but sadly there was much better chili there so the prize was a no-go for us. It was a lot of fun. (captions are on the top of each picture)

We carved pumpkins. This picture is blurry I am sorry, but check out that alien

Here is my witch. It was pretty intense.
Ofcourse we cooked the seeds. SOOOO good.

At school I dressed up as a smarty pants. The kids loved it. They wanted me to raise my hand and have everyone else giving me dirty looks. Although it looks like most of them are just looking at the camera:) They are so funny.

Here's my crew, minus a few.

We had a rockin party. Our craft was making a skeleton. Very cute.
Last night we gave out a lot of candy, which is always fun, and then had some friends over and played Scattegories (which Drew and I rocked) and then watched the Skeleton Key. I thought it was a good movie. I also made some graveyard dessert. Overall Halloween was a success.
