Okay. I hate that I didn't write on this for almost two weeks. But for some odd reason, I was having total writer's block. I'd get on and start a blog...and pretty soon I'd be annoyed without much to say. So...I took a blog break. However, I am now completely re-inspired.
So let me update you all on my life as of now:
Last Friday night, I went with Kara to the Harvest Dance over at the Red Mountain Institute. It was a costume thing, and very last minute. But no worries, Kara and I threw something together last minute. :] We wore dresses from back in the day...literally. Those of you who are part of the Webster Clan, and some others, may remember Pearl (she used to live across the street from Seeta). Well, I was the lucky recipient of a couple of her old dresses from her earlier years. I was actually really excited about this because they are both WAY cute! So we threw on boots, belts, headbands, beads, poofed our hair BIG, and did CRAZY COOL lime green and hot pink eyeshadow and were good to go. The dance was very fun and we met so fun people...and cute boys!
On Saturday night, Kara and I went to a benefit concert at Mountain View for Christian and Stephanie Nielson and the Kinneard family. Mindy Gledhill sang at it and let me just say that she is VERY talented. I loved her music and bought her cd. You can check her out here. The whole concert was amazing. She was so cute and entertaining and paid tribute to all involved. Stephanie and Christian's little girls sang a song at the concert...and I was FORCING back the tears. They held hands the entire time. It was so sweet.
Sunday night was Elsie's birthday party.
OH MY PRECIOUS. She is so sweet. I loved just sitting around, watching the kids. I took lots of pictures, of course. But I did have a highlight of the night. At one point, Gage came out in his Mr. Incredible costume and went over to Cotter and got ready to wrestle with him. Cotter immediately began to act like a dinosaur...noises, stance, everything. They went after each other, playing their roles. We got out a dinosaur costume for Cot to wear. Pretty soon the girls had on costumes as well. Not too long after that, Benson came out wearing a Batman costume. He looked so tall in comparison to the kids...hilarious. But he began playing with them all. It was so funny to see the difference between boys and girls. Cotter and Gage kept jumping on him and wrestling but Quinci walked up and handed him a doll wanting him to cuddle with the baby. And Elsie was TERRIFIED of him. It was so sweet. I got some footage on my cell phone but I have NO IDEA how to get it on here. So we'll see if I can add it later. :]
Last night, I decided that I wanted to make some fun Halloween treats. I've always wanted to make those pumpkin cookies with the cream cheese frosting. So, I found a recipe and decided to try it out last night. I had some minor difficulties but I think they turned out pretty good. I delievered them to some friends and everyone seemed to LOVE them. So...maybe making cookies really is a talent I have. Not just the peanut butter kiss ones. Here's some pictures of the result...although i'm not so sure whether I was trying to say "Happy Halloween" or "Go Suns!". The purple and orange thing....hmmm...subliminal, perhaps.
Anyway, there is an update. I promise I will try harder to write on here more. :] Let me give you a hint as to something that will motivate me to write more...YOU comment more. Just a thought.
