Something very scary happened to Brent and I so we have been trying to take safety precautions in every area of our life, so now we're going to make our blog private. If you want to be invited to read it send me an email at I will wait a couple weeks to make it private so that people can see this post, but in the meantime I won't be updating at all. Everything ended up being ok and I will blog about it after we are private. See you in a couple weeks!

A Hundred Million Suns

A little while ago I blogged about how excited I was for the new Snow Patrol cd to come out. Well, now that I've had it for a few weeks I would just like to say that it has completely exceeded my already high expectations. Even after having it for a few weeks, listening to it still gives me chills!!! It's not very often that I can listen to a cd and then just repeat the thing over again, but I do with this cd over and over and over. If anyone is looking for a new cd to add to their collection, I would definitely recommend this one. Snow Patrol, I salute you!

Halloween was so fun this year! In the morning Macie and I went Trick-or-Treating to my moms and Brent's work. At Brents work everyones kids were coming in with their costumes. The only problem was Macie ended up being the only one that showed up. Still, you can't get much cuter than her in her bumble bee costume!!I took about 400 pictures before I finally got a couple that I liked. Mace HATES wearing anything so whenever you put something on her she looks like she's being tortured. It was quite a challenge to get a good picture where Macie wasn't looking like she was abused.
Dan, Brianne, and Lana came up to our house to Trick-or-Treat and spend the night. Lana dressed up like a little cow and she looked adorable! After Trick-or-Treating was over we played some Wii sports and watched 1408 (lame movie!).
The next morning we woke up super early to get to Target for the 50% off Halloween stuff. I got a bunch of cute decorations for next year! The only downfall was that the sales were on a Saturday and Brent came with me, which meant that I couldn't go too crazy with buying decorations and cheap candy :)
Lana is seriously one of the cutest babies ever. I told Brianne that if someone ever contacts her to let her know Lana won a cute baby picture contest not to be surprised, because I probably entered her in it. Creepy? Probably. But how can you resist that little face?

Seattle Ghost Tour

My dad, Brent, and I went to the Seattle Ghost tour the night before Halloween. I think it could have potentially been very spooky, but the tour guide started out the tour by saying that she didn't believe in ghosts (isn't that kind of like an Amish person working for G.E.?). Anyway the tour was by the Pikes Place Market after it closed for the day so that made it a little spookier.
The tour started at the gum wall. Brent was fascinated and a little grossed out by it.This is the old Seattle morgue. Every business that has been in there since has closed down and some very spooky stuff has gone down there. My dad took this picture. His flash is in the upper left, but what are the white floating orbs?... maybe it is haunted!!

This is what the market looks like after everyone has cleared out. Creepy!!
