Sunday night my cousin Taylor Hancock passed away. He was only 15 years old. They aren't sure what exactly happened, but it has been very difficult for my family.
I just wanted to write and tell my Aunt Annette, my Uncle Tim, and my cousin Trey that I love them and that we will all get through this together. It will not be easy, but we will get through it.
Last night I was talking to Jon about it - I had just spoken with my Aunt on the phone and it was very difficult to hear her grief and pain. Jon told me that we shouldn't worry because his Grandpa Saline is up there taking good care of Taylor...I know that is true....
If you could all keep him and our family in your prayers (especially my Aunt and Uncle and my cousin) these next few days and weeks.
Taylor will be deeply missed.

I am finally getting around to blogging about Halloween!! I know, it's a little bit late, but here it is!
We went to Snowflake and spent the day with my parents. We went out to the Willis' pumpkin patch and picked out some pumpkins. Jon and Tanner had to search the entire patch for the two biggest and roundest pumpkins, but the rest of us found our little ones pretty quickly.
The first picture is Dad's pumpkin. He had the idea of shaving the skin off of the teeth to make them look more scary. Brilliant huh?

Here is a picture of mom and dad's together. Mom's looks so happy huh? It's because it is eating a Snickers! During the day though, we looked and the Snickers had disappeared. We were really worried that a dog got it and is now very sick...I hope not!!
Ok, this is a picture of our pumpkins before we carved them....all of our pumpkin heads!

These are all of our pumpkins at night - you can't really tell, but Jon's is the one that is laying down. It has "brains" falling out (the pumpkin insides) and Tanner's looks all mean and has some "brain" coming out of his mouth like he is eating it....it looked so awesome!!
This is a close up of my little pumpkin - he is so happy cuz he is all in love....hee hee hee it's pretty silly.
That night my parents got trick-or-treaters for the first time in 11 years and they were so cute!! We were playing a board game and every time the doorbell would ring both my mom and my dad would jump up and run to the door. My dad was especially excited about it. He was so cute!!
It was really fun!
