We had a pretty awesome October this year!To start the month off we met my Aunt Kathy & Uncle Andy in Las Vegas one night. 
We actually met up at the Temple, did a session together and then went out to dinner. 

We introduced them to Memphis BBQ and the favorite deep fried dill pickles. Love those.

October is general conference time and we love that. We managed to see all the sessions on tv and it was just wonderful. We love conference weekend so much it just recharges our batteries. It is such a blessing to be able to participate in all the sessions. What an exciting announcement the prophet made about lowering the missionary age to 18 and girls to 19. It was so neat to hear that first hand and listen to the audible gasp in the audience! Looking forward to seeing what that announcement brings to the world in the next few years.

I got to help Lori do a cake top for Travis' wedding and it was such a fun morning. I was more than a little worried about my decorating skills after all these years but it turned out pretty well. It was so nice to reconnect with her after what seems like years and years even though it hasn't been all that long. We attended Travis' wedding and reception that weekend and I have to say he looks super happy so we wish them both well in their new life together.

 One of the highlights of our month was Christina coming home!! She had fall break and spent it home with us. 
To make it even more fun Ashley came out for the weekend to visit too. Benjy took the boys to Delta for the weekend and the girls wanted to spend some time together. It worked out great. The three of us went up to the MVHS homecoming parade. I skipped last year so it was good to go and see everyone for once. Christina and Ashley and I totally skipped the homecoming game (sorry boys). Beth and Rob came over to visit with us that night and it was so fun to see them. We are all so busy now it's not easy to see them that much. We remember those days and totally understand how busy and crazy it gets! Later that night Alisha came over and we had a girl's movie night.
We got a super late start (10:30pm) so we were up until about 2 watching the North & the South. One of our favorites and Ashley had never seen it. That was fun but exhausting. Benjy and the kids came by so Christina could play with them. Then Ashley was off too. Can you believe I don't have even one picture of our weekend!! It was a really fun long weekend though.

The MVPAC had the Piano Guys Monday night so I had to be up there early to take tickets. It was an amazing show though and I wish all my kids could have been there darn it. We fed the missionaries a couple of times this fall which we love to do. We got to go to the Temple when Kelan went through and Jordan (Nephew).We think it's pretty cool that we went to 3 different Temples this month! I did 72 hour kits for the ward and went to a Medicaid conference in Vegas. So I guess it was another busy month! Posts to come for the Pumpkin Patch with the grandkids and Tennessee for Jordan.
