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.

Happy Halloween!

We live in Utah, and it's no secret Utah has its own little culture. So Halloween was Saturday here. Unfortunately, Saturday it was raining, and I didn't dare bring my expensive camera out in the downpour to get pictures of trick-or-treating in the act. Luckily we took the kids to trick-or-treat at BYU on Friday, so we have some pictures of our monkeys in costume.

BYU hosts a trick-or-treat activity at the Marriott Center where the kids can meet the collegiate athletes. The kids got to meet the men's volleyball team, the swim team, golf team, women's gymnasts and a few others I can't remember. It was a lot of fun.

Carly was helping Wes by holding his pumpkin bucket for him. Then she got the genius idea to take his unguarded candy. So a piece of candy would be put into each pumpkin, and she'd quickly take his out and put it into hers. What a greedy monster!

The best part was Marshall chasing Wes down the corridors. It was a giant banana chasing a shrieking little monkey, and we got quite a few laughs from the other parents.

After the trick-or-treating, we enjoyed the BYU basketball team's first game of the season.

My 3 favorite people.

Saturday, we went to Star's house for a very scary dinner. We were treated with ghoulish dishes prepared by Star and Russ, including fingers, mummy toes, pumpkin wraps, bones (rolls), swamp water, and a very scary (and delish) risotto.

Then we took our brood into the rain to trick-or-treat Star's neighborhood. Unfortunately, the storm put a damper on the Halloween spirit, and many houses did not have candy or no one answered. Too bad.

We still had a lovely Halloween weekend.
