Halloween crafting! Meghan and I wanted to do a halloween wreath... So we went to the dollar store (which has super cheap wreaths) bought a few and supplies.. I bought 1 boa, a crow and we shared a roll of ribbon, a package of halloween rings (bats, spiders, etc.) and a package of black cheese cloth. I found us the B at Joann's for about $3 and the rest is history. It was sooo easy, fun and CHEAP!!!
We went to Utah for my parents 50th birthday and my mom bought my sister and I some crafts to do from the Wood Connection - So we spent some time painting the Wicked while there. The K is glittery. I love glitter!!!
When we got back to Tucson, Meghan and I did a set of bats that I bought from the Wood Connection as well. Seriously... Check that store out. It's AWESOME!!!

We also did family pictures.. Notice how my mom is holding a pair of Sean's shoes???
We've been having fun and working hard... Only a few short months and Bradley and I will both be done with school. (FOREVER??) I hope... What will it be like not to be a student? We shall find out, I'm thinking its going to be absolutely glorious.
In other news... A TEMPLE IN TUCSON??? YAHOO! I am so excited for that! What a great general conference it was! We shared our home with lots of people. There are 4 missionaries serving in our ward and we had them all over Sunday morning. We ate a delicious breakfast and thanks to one of the Elders, I made (that's right... from scratch) the most delicious CINNAMON SYRUP. I am never buying syrup again. The recipe was seriously...
1/2 C Sugar
1/2 C Brown Sugar
2 T Flour
1 C Water
1 t Vanilla
1/2 t Cinnamon.
Boil. Simmer. Done.
How easy? and Healthy - ier ?? I think most things that you make homemade are healthier than the store bough equivilant, but that's just me. But seriously you should try to make some cinnamon syrup. We had a plethora of food... Breakfast casseroles, mini pancakes with cinnamon syrup (can't get enough) strawberries and powdered sugar, bacon and delicious pumpkin donuts that Meghan made. I love breakfast. It's the best. and it's especially the best when general conference and cinnamon syrup are involved. :)
