Halloween and Thanksgiving

This year Macy was a skunk and a bunch of red grapes...I couldn't decide!! She loves candy and still says "trick of treat" multiple times a day



Time sure flies! Sorry this blog has been the last on my list. We have had a really great fall. Im really sad it is officailly winter!! Im excited for Christmas and going home to warm Arizona in just one short week but I am really dreading the snow and ice and gloomy days. At least we will be heading to Arizona for a whole month. I have mixed feeling about this because we don't have very much time left in good ole Indiana. And I really really do love love love it here. When we get back from Arizona we will only have 4 more months living here....cRaZY!! Im scared...im not gonna lie. I don't know what lies ahead for us so it is so scary. Im really gonna miss all my friends here...SSSOO much!! Infact, Im getting teary just thinking about it! Im really gonna miss my house. I love my first little house I made into home. We had our first child here and so so many memories and parties. I know when I look back I will LOVE these years here in Indiana. Ive grown leaps and bounds. Ive had a couple of real goals that I made for myself and Ive accomplished almost all except mastering sewing which I still have a couple months to work on :) Anyway, I posted like a million pics of our life the last couple months. Matt is doing so great in school and is going to be finished really early....job search is soon! Hopefully we can find a job in Az but we will see??? Macy is doing so great. She is such a fireball! She has such a strong, cute, personality. She has gotten a lot harder lately and is very much full time!! But we wouldn't change a thing! She is talking up a storm and gives lots of loves!! Macy is super friendly...a little too friendly sometimes and isn't scared of much of anything. She loves her baba (I know) blanket and thumb and outside. She also loves playing in the car, animals, and shows (which she asks for all day long). She is a very picky eater but loves anything with RANCH! She is so social and has lots of friends! We love and adore her!! Ive been really busy doing what moms do...clean, cook, entertain, ect...my calling keeps me really busy too! But I love it! I love the Young Women and look up to them so much...we have an amazing group of girls. Anyway, wow I have been writing a lot. Matt is currently having a call of duty boys night at our home which consists of about 10 boys (almost dr's which is even more funny) 3 tv's and lots of shooting and laughing. They are having so much fun! Haha Matt is gonna miss it here too!


Matt went fishing in Michigan a couple weeks ago and caught a ton of salmon, he was way excited about this and plans on making this a ritual

Macy loved feeding the giraffe. Today we were at our friends house and she was having so much fun feeding their dog! All giggles!!!
So hard to get a family picture with these two!
We went to a really cool Halloween festival with some friends and they had an awesome corn pit!

ok this ticket box for my Halloween costume took me so many hours im ashamed to say how many but Ill just say definitely over 10 hours!
Some of the girls that went to the midnight showing of Breaking Dawn
Let me explain...so this year we had our last and final year of our annual Halloween party with our year of dental students. My amazing friend Jenalee threw the best party!! We had a carnival themed murder mystery party! It was such a fun night! I was the ticket lady and matt was the FBI agent. I love Halloween. And I must say I won the Halloween costume all 4 years!!

The clown was the murderer!
The boys got into it too :)

Macy and Matts pumpkin
Cutest skunk around! It was so much fun dressing her up!!! She loved the idea of getting candy and being outside at the same time. She was so funny cause if we would talk to the neighbor for longer than 10 seconds she would pull on our arms to hurry so she could move on to the next house! This girl loves candy!!!
Matts brother Garrett and his cute wife Lexi came to visit. We had so much fun with them.
All bundled up ready for the cold!
My stinker ready for church who hates nursery!
A couple of my friends threw a shower for our awesome friend Brooke. It turned out really cute!




For Thanksgiving we got to go Iowa to spend Thanksgiving with Matts sister Marie (who is AMAZING and can do anything and everything and she is so gorgeous too) It was such a blast! Matts parents and his two younger brothers came too. We had so much fun with them. We also got to go to Navoo while we were there too and that was such a neat experience. Macy had so much fun with her cousins. We love our family! We were so lucky it was only a 5 hour drive and we did it while Macy was asleep so it was a piece of cake...of course I wasn't driving either :)
Meg and Macy

playing in their awesome backyard
Marie made the best food. It was so fun to see how she made things. Ive always watched my mom cook ( who is an awesome cook too) but it was fun to see the different recipes. Thanks Marie and Nate for such a great weekend. Oh ya we did hit up Walmart at 10pm on Thanksgiving too :)
