Whirlwind week!

Yeah- it's been crazy busy- as always! Tuesday we found out Blake's sister Jaime was coming out to AZ from San Diego because they got manditorily evacuated because of the fires. Their apt luckily wasn't damaged- they just needed to get out of the smoke and ashes for a few days since Jax has athsema and Parker is a newborn. It was so sweet to finally get to hold and coddle Parker- he is TOO cute! And he just loved when Uncle Blake gave him loves! And Jax loved being the master puppeteer with Chels

Wednesday I went outside to see a lovely surprise...my peas had grown nearly 2 inches in 2 days...wow, if that doesn't make an amateour gardener proud, I don't know what could!

So, Wednesday night Awake & Alert played at the Brickhouse in Phoenix, and I'm not gonna lie- the sound was amazing and Maya's vocals were spot on- it was pretty phasing. Of course Blake and Spencer and super critical and played at a really cool venue in LA last weekend so they thought it didn't even compare. I met up with Jaime and Chelsea to watch the show and that was a lot of fun- especially since we hardly see Jaime since she lives in San Diego!
Thursday Chels and I practiced a church hymn- "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing" that is done in a beautiful arrangement that we'll be singing on Sunday in her singles ward for church. Haven't done a duet in a while but it will be a lot of fun! Pretty song!

Tonight we just got back from a lovely Halloween party hosted by Cami and Molly- and what FANTASTIC parties they throw! Thanks for letting us be a part of it! Here is just a little taste of what we saw...



Yes. I am a "deviled" egg. Clever, I know- can't take the credit though- however I did actually make the egg, so that is fun. It was a lot of fun seeing old friends and new- it was great getting together! I wish I had more time to do these sorts of things!

that is the cutest costume! you are so witty. and funny.

last night i had a million dreams about you. the first was the funniest though. you and blake came over and he was sporting a robert-smith-from-the-cure hairdo. i said "blake, did you TEASE your hair??" and he said in his understated way, "yeah. i was trying something new."

Mandy--I'm so glad we've found each other in the blogosphere! I can't believe you were a deviled egg--my friend Amy had like EXACTLY the same costume. I thought it was so original, but I guess nearly two states away it still counts as unique. And it's super cute, so who cares.
Count me as your happy new blog-stalker.
