Happy Halloween!

On Sunday We had a little Halloween Party with the DeMill Family. Of course the kiddos come dressed up in their finest Halloween attire - and we did what we do best - PARTY!! Of course we always kick off the gathering with a little food (for this festive occasion we had Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup and Chili - with bread sticks and other Delicious things that filled our belly's completely!

For Dessert we had this scrumptious little treat - It was my contribution to the party! Yes to the naked eye it looks like a jack-o-lantern but the truth is-- it is cake.
I was just going to make a plain ole pumpkin cake but Shane got the grand idea to put a face on it! I must admit I think it looks fantastic! We only ate about 1/2 of it (not because it wasn't so delicious we couldn't stop eating... but because it takes 2 cake mixes to make the thing... so we have lots of cake if anyone needs some).

And what party would be complete with out a little bit of doughnuts on a string...

and bobbing for apples!

Good times were had by all!

Ode to the Sunfire...

When Shane got home from his mission in 2004 he was blessed with the opportunity to have a car to drive around. He got this GREAT pontiac sunfire!
I asked Shane a few questions about the car.. and here are his answers...

1:Tell me about your car.
-It is a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire Sedan 2.2L. It is about 15 miles away from crossing the 200,000 mile on the odometer.

2:When did you get it?
"I got the car not to long after the mission. I was driving my parents old pontiac grand am. Shad and Jenn had the sunfire and they were going to get rid of it because they just got a minivan. So it was between a couple weeks after to the mission to a couple of months. I cant remember which."

3: Who had the car before you? Multiple Owner?
"Shad and Jenn had the car before they gave it to me. My parents sold there pontiac grand am and gave Shad and Jenn the money for it and then i took the sunfire. I believe jenn bought it used from someone, i dont know who."

4:What is something good about your car?
The good thing about the car is that it has lasted for awhile and gets good gas mileage (about 30+ depending on my driving), and it got me places that i needed to be.

5: What is something you don't like about your car?
I didnt like that the fuel injectors leaked fuel, nor did i like that the A/C was out for the last 3 summers/ nor did i like the volume knob on the radio, because it had to be turned just right to change the volume, and if you didnt do it right it wouldall the sudden get really loud and blow your ears out. I cant think of anything else for the moment, so i will move on.

6: What will you miss?
I think that i will miss the gas mileage a little bit. But the fact of having a truck out weighs that by a lot. I might miss the stick shift once in a while, but probably not.

So based on the last question you can tell that we decided it was time to move on -- and THIS is what we got! Shane LOVES it (maybe more than he loves me)!

(Please try to ignore the scootie and enjoy the beautiful truck Shane gets the opportunity to drive) It is a 2009 Toyota Tacoma -- If you need more details you will have to ask Shane! So if you know anyone that is just dying to have a little Sunfire that needs a little work... give them our number... we'd be more than happy to help them out!
