Hey all! Well, Conference was on all day long at our house, but honestly, I don't know how much I actually herd. I woke up at 9 ish, and had a massive headache. I hadn't gone away from the night before. I ate some breakfast, took a pill, turned on conference in my room (because by then it was 10am), and laid down. Apparently, the internet glitched and I fell asleep, because before I knew it, it was 11am. My headache was gone, and there was no conference on. I got up, got dressed, and went into the kitchen to find the family sitting around the table, doing various projects, listening to conference. It was SO sweet.

Jimmy decided that he could now draw faces. It's the CUTEST thing ever. He drew one of me with a round (well, roundish) face, two dot eyes, ears, crazy hair, a smile, and a honker (what he calls a BIG nose). Too cute!

Between sessions, we made more sugar cookies. We made up plates for our home teaching families. 4 plates with the cutest card on it. Sure, it only printed in Black and White, but I still thought it was cute. What do ya think?

I used Megan Turnridges new kit. Fabulous Halloween kit, by the way! Cute, and Halloween-ie, but not too scary! PERFECT! And, my WordArt from Halloween 4 WordArt Pack.

After the 2nd session, the kids and I headed off to the park. Andrea and her hubby and kids were there, and Kim (a different Kim from down the street) and her hubby and kids were there. I texted Captain America and told him to come and play too.

He got there just as Ryan (Andrea's man) was leaving. They stopped and chatted for about 30 minutes, then went back to Ryans house. LOL! They both LOVE guns and reenacting. Too funny.

Andrea and I stayed until it got too cold. I'm sorry girls, but when it gets below 70 degrees, I think I need gloves or a hat or a scarf or something! Buzzy! It was cold.

As we headed home, we ran into Katy and Adela. They were coming to visit with us. We stayed at the mailboxes and chatted for a while, but some annoying kid was enticing our kids to be naughty too. SO, we moved the chit chat circle down to Adela's house. We stood outside and gabbed for about 20 minutes, then went to our various homes.

Captain America had come out by then, so we walked home together. He wanted to get some of his guns and such and bring them back to Ryans house to show him. Just like a little kid - LOL! I got some dinner for the kids (well, if you count sandwiches as dinner....), and put them to bed, and Captain America and I headed back to Andrea's house. Ryan and Captain America chatted about guns and civil war reenacting and such, and Andrea and I chatted in the kitchen for a while, then played the Wii for a while. I kicked her butt at Boxing, she beat me by 6 points in Bowling, I beat her +5 to +13 in Golf, she won in Tennis, and we were on the same team in Hell's Kitchen, but I was clearly the drag on the ticket - LOL! It was a lot of fun.

By the time Captain America was finally ready to go home, it was after 10:30pm. I'm SO glad that our husbands get along. They seemed to have a lot of fun chatting. I did hear mention of them possibly coming reenacting with us this coming weekend. That would be a TON of fun!

Well, since it's October, and Halloween is quickly approaching, I thought I'd make you guys up a Halloween-ish freebee. Click on the links below to go to my accounts to download the PNG file, and leave some love if you like my work. Thanks!
