Happy to be a Mom!

I love this thought from President David O. McKay

"She, who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions -- deserves the admiration and the plaudits of man. But she who rears a family of beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, long after paintings have faded, and books have been destroyed she deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God. In her high duty and service to humanity, she is co-partner with the Creator himself."

New Moon

Yep I just have to post about it too. I went with a gaggle of girls last night to see New Moon. Which is really the only way to do it, I mean how can you be in love with Edward, and Jacaob and then Edward again and with your husband sitting next to you, really one too many men for a movie theater- so husband has to go.

Well in short words I loved it, so good, much better than twilight, Edward was much better which in my opinion wasn't very hard to do. Jacob was wonderful, Bella was lacking some major emotion, not one tear in the whole thing just 3-5 word sentences with a lot of gulps and sighs between everything. But I went to see a romantic movie and was not disappointed.

If you are interested here is a link to a small screen play that Devin and I just busted up laughing over about twilight: Enjoy:

The business school has a school grant to take 20 MBA students to Lebanon, Kenya, and Uganda to study the role of businesses in developing economies. This was what Devin studiesd in his Undergraduate Thesis so he was really excited about the project. So he applied in October but was not accepted to go, however he signed up to be the "extra" student in the class who would help with the writing and class research, and be an american contact incase they needed stuff faxed or whatever.

So Thursday night Devin comes home with a big smile and it turns out they have an extra spot, so guess who gets to go to Uganda, Africa from Dec 10-Dec 20th!?

Yep you guessed my favorite Travel Bug husband, I should have know when I met him in a foriegn country they he would be a world wide traveler.

Spencer and I are taking off to spend a few extra days in Sacramento and Fresno visiting family, so we will all be gone for a month at Christmas!

We had a fabulous Halloween starting with the Ward Truck o Treat on Tuesday and then a MBA family party on Friday and then the best of all the Village Halloween Party.

Our apartment put on the best Harvest Festival that had a horse drawn Carriage, Petting Zoo, Heated Tent, Pizza, Hot Chocolate and a Pumpkin Grotto. It was awesome. Getting ready for the carriage ride.

Spencer really liked the Petting zoo. He got to feed the goat some leaves which was so awesome

Of course on e of the best things was the Fire Truck. The Notre Dame fire department personally came and lit our bon fire.

here we are at the Truck o Treat. Devin was a very scary nursery leader, Naomi was pregnant butterfly, and Spencer was our Frog
