HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Poor Mupp. That hair can be somewhat of a curse.

For more than 6 years Jeff has been grilling whole turkeys. They are deeeeelish. And the great part is that they cook in about 3-4 hours rather than the 6-8 hours it takes in an oven.
This year the big 'ole bird was cooking up beautifully.... until it happened. 20 minutes before it was done, there was a grease fire, or that's what we assume because we never saw it. Maybe some mean person sneaked into our backyard with a blowtorch or some accelerants and torched it. I guess we'll never know.
Our Thanksgiving ham was delicious.

HAHAHAHA! It was hilarious, and I'm sure the other restaurant patrons were thoroughly annoyed.
We bestowed the "Edward" to Vashti (who joined us after a performance in her Hillcrest HS musical- stage make-up and all!) as a keepsake of the evening.
Even though I think the whole Twilight Saga craze is sometimes a little exaggerated, it really is so much fun to giggle and hang out with my friends. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!

This is the hair that has earned this child the new nickname of Mupp. This floppy flyaway mop of hair looks just like a muppet's when he's running around the house or singing to himself and bobbing his head back and forth.
Do you think we'll still be calling him Mupp when he's in High school?

Our boys chose their own costumes and fortunately they were fairly simple to create from finds at Savers and some fabric remnants. Nanos was a disco dude, and he actually looked kind of handsome, so I'm making him be a pumpkin or something cute next year because I refuse to let him get any older. Bear was a chef and he totally loved it! I made his trick or treat bag to look like a pot of soup and it opened like a flap for candy deposit and retrieval. Jojo was The CUTEST Man With The Yellow Hat and carried his Curious George. I loved his oversized cartoony tie! And Gabers was able to fit into Nanos' old Mr. Peanut costume and Jeff and I (and a surprising amount of other people) were delighted that it finally fit another one of our boys. It is probably our all time favorite Halloween costume (special props go to my mom, Grandma Judy, for making it so well!)
Jeff wore a Frankenstein head and I was Little Dead Riding Hood. I usually don't have time to costume myself when I'm running around so much, but it was fun to do something this year. I included a photo of Jeff's parents because I think they're so funny! Jeff's mom is a witch and his Dad is a neanderthal - I wish they'd been able to wear costumes. HAHAHAHA!!! Kidding, my mother in law should have dressed like an angel and my FIL should have been a... pun.
After we were done at the church, we went real trick-or-treating in Jeff's parent's neighborhood. They have the BEST trick-or-treating neighborhood EVER. There were people every where and the houses are decorated and well lit. It's just fun. I've bragged about our great Halloween events so often that my cousin Wendy and Paul and their family decided to join us this year- I love them and their ADORABLE kids and I'm so glad they drove from Heber to come with us!

Who can guess why Jojo is BANNED from yogurt?

Thank you funny stranger, for making my morning a little more laughy.

As a birthday gift, my triplet sisters (the other two are identical and I'm fraternal- it's very rare) took me out to see Chels in her show. It was pretty much awesome.
Now, here we see Meg and I doing a self-inflicted photo. I typically love how these turn out.
See. Don't we look cute? But undoubtedly, some good citizen always comes along and offers to help us take our photo...
And THIS is what happens. We laughed ourselves sick over this picture, it was so funny to us at 10pm. So I'm actually grateful that this horrible photo was taken. So, thank you kind stranger, who ever you are, for taking this awful picture of us.
Here is Chels (in the middle) during the final curtain call. I'd like to mention that this is right after I was dragged onto stage for an "audience participation" number and forced to ad lib a devil dance while playing a washboard with a stick. Yeah, that's right, you heard me. It was supposed to be completely random selection from the audience- apparently not. She ganged up with Ed (who my brother and I knew in high school) to put me intentionally in the aisle seat for easy access for just this situation. Happy Freakin' Birthday to me. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!
Chels, Me, and Meg. I wish I'd gotten their gorgeous giant eyes.
Oh, yeah, here's Ed. He did a good job in the show, he's a long time pro at Desert Star. However, I think he's still in the dog house for bringing me up on stage. Ed, Don't think I didn't noticed that mischievous delighted look in your eyes as you were taking me from my comfortable anonymous seat and onto the bright stage full of strangers. Brat... :-)
