The most culture shock worthy and wonderfully diverse city we know.

Mappy Hallogivingmas

Hello hello... it has been quite some time since we last posted. And in that time we have celebrated Halloween, Thanksgiving and we are getting close to Christmas. So, in one conglomerated post of them all we have Hallogivingmas!

First, the Hallo...

Adri and I love haunted houses, and since Rocky Point is no longer in operation, we went to the place that pretty much bought all of their haunting gear... Nightmare on 13th.  We went to this one last year as well, and this year it had a lot of great improvements.

Adri had a work party where they dressed up as old ladies.  She may look like she is wearing a wig here, but I assure you that she is that "talented" to be able to make her hair that big.  I did the spray coloring to help out.

Then we got together with some friends and went out to eat in our costumes.  Mike and Lisa here made these themselves.  I was quite impressed!

Dimitriy and Monique I think just decided to bring out their secret lives.  Or maybe not so secret.

People ask Adri and I where we are headed next, or where we have been recently, so we figured this was only so very appropriate.  I'm sure we'll continue to be asked, which is okay because it means we are continuing to do something we love!

Next, the giving...

Unfortunately I realized that we didn't take any pictures during Thanksgiving (sorry!), but we had a great time with Adri's family.  In fact, we got to celebrate Thanksgiving twice.  Once with my cousins the Weidauer's and once at Adri's parents.  James, who is in school at BYU-I, came down to celebrate with us and we also got to see Danny, Denise and Liam.

This little bear happened into our life at this time of year, and we can't help but be grateful for the pranks we get to play on people with him.  He's already terrorized Adri's parents.  Not sure who is next... be warned...
Lastly, the mas...

Although Christmas has not yet happened, we are already in the spirit of it.  Shopping was finished in November, and Adri has already been asked by some people to do some baking.  These are some cupcakes that she made for a friends party.  They turned out so great!

As actual Christmas is almost here, we are excited to spend it with my family this year.  It has been so long since we have all been together that we aren't really quite sure what to expect (except a lot of great times and stories of course).

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or whatever you may be celebrating at this time of year!
