My name is Lauren, and I live in the bubble. I am wife to Marshall, the biggest BYU fan in the world; and mother to Carly, our big girl, and Wes, our wild man, and Calvin, our new addition. I graduated BYU with a degree in Social Work, and I went forth to serve at LDS Family Services. I like scrapbooking and going out to eat at nice restaurants. I am fascinated by new cleaning products at the grocery store, so I have to shop in wide circles around the perimeter to avoid the temptation to buy. I love chocolate.

Halloween Dress Rehearsal

We had our ward Halloween party on Saturday night, so we got to get out the costumes and do the first full dress rehearsal. It was a little hectic getting out of the house because we discovered that Wes' costume was much to big. So he went to the party sans costume while I scramble to find a better fitting replacement before the real deal this weekend.

Other than that, our monkey whose costume did fit, and our giant banana both looked great.

At the party, Marshall assumed his usual role of free child entertainer. The rest of the adults sit back, eat some appetizers, and chat while Marshall runs wild. He's like the Pied Piper. The kids flock to him and he rough houses, chases, and keeps them busy. Within an hour he was drenched in sweat.

Then we had the typical eat-a-donut-off-a-string-without-using-your-hands contest. Carly loves donuts and really wanted to play.

But she had a very hard time actually eating the donut, and ended up near tears.

Until we told her just to use her hands.

When we got home, Marshall had a very special performance for us.

I hope all of your Halloween preparations are coming along!
