Happy Halloween: Little Bo Peep found her sheep

This Halloween Little Bo Peep and her lost sheep found each other. Here they are, with Jackie playing the part of Bo Peep and Bridget as the sheep or rather the lamb, as in Lamb-e-r-t. I'd found the lamb outfit at a yard sale in brand new condition and bought it, partly because I liked the pun on the last name. We made Jackie's outfit using what we had around the house, just purchasing some ribbon for her homemade staff (used a wood dowel and wire-covered newspaper, covered in fabric for the basic staff) and hair. We went to a trunk-or-treat at the church last weekend. This is right before we left:


Once there, the kids enjoyed chili and cornbread, the parade of the children, and candy.
This morning, we went trick-or-treating to downtown businesses. Tonight we just stayed inside where it was warm. It was a little disappointing that no trick-or-treaters knocked on our door. But, then again we didn't knock on other's either. I think some people, like us, have concerns about safety. Oh, well, Happy Halloween!

My sister, Christie, made my wedding cake -- all five layers of it. It was fondant, covered in fresh red roses and green ribbon. For a more modern look she chose to make a square cake.

OK, here's the truth, what Renn and I really look like when we wake up. After our first backpacking trip as a couple, Renn's hair looked like grass growing on his head and mine lay flat and matted as we walked out of the mountains.

This is us on our last day at the Hummingbird Inn in Maneadero, Mexico. It was a fun week of service with Engineers Without Borders. Renn and other USU engineering students helped put in drain fields at an orphanage, The Gabriel House, for children with severe disabilities. I helped dig some holes and wrote an article for the newspaper about the experience.
