Colton Mac Wood

My sister had a beautiful baby boy on December 7, 2007. She named him Colton Mac Wood. Mac was our grandpa's nickname so it has even more meaning. He is just the cutest baby ever. Also great news my sister-in-law Emily is going to have a baby in August! Our two kids misbehave a lot so we are still waiting to add another member to our family.

Annual Halloween Party!!

This began three years ago and the party just keeps getting better and better. I thrive on throwing parties especially my Halloween party.(My mom taught me at a very young age that parties have to be elaborate and everything has to be perfect) We plan months in advance to decide on our costumes. This is very important to me and Dave. This year we decided to be the characters from "Elf" the movie. Dave is Buddy and I am the girl elf. I sewed Dave's costume and we got my fabulous pink outfit at Saver's(it was only 3 bucks!). The costume's turned out to be a LOT of work but it was totally worth it to see Dave in yellow tights!

My Halloween party has very strict rules. You are not allowed to come unless you have a costume(i wanna a REAL costume). Second come to enjoy some good grub. I always have good food and "scary" treats like my mummy fingers, wolverine fingers and Frankenstein fingers. Check out all the pictures to see what you are missing... I know all you Provo friends are crying cause I am not there to throw you the best party ever.

Halloween Tree

I dont know how to flip these pictures. any ideas?

I love Halloween. I always have a huge party every year. So this year I wanted to be extra crafty and make something unique. So I looked at my Martha Stewart magazine and they had a great idea to spray paint branches black and use them as table decorations. I went a little further and made a Halloween Tree. I found the branch in the parking lot of Lowe's. It was a little embarrassing to grab a branch off the ground and put it in my car. I got some bats, skeletons, bugs and glitter at Micheal's. And I went crazy and the tree looks awesome. And Martha is calling me to do a special in her next show. :)

Our House

We just found a new house for rent in our area. The place was pretty scary when we moved in but we lots of paint and TLC we turned it into a beautiful home. We have a backyard for the doggies and a doggie door(Scout loves it and of course Mac hates it) . But we love having so much room, its a 3 bed/2 bath. Here are some pictures of the house.

Race Car Cake

So my nephew, Jackson, turned 2 and loves Lightening McQueen so I made him a race car track with the cars on top. We even made a bridge on the cake. I dropped the cake off at my sisters in the morning for the party that night and Jackson wouldn't stop trying to touch it and take Lightening off the cake. I guess it was a success. It was pretty easy to make and it looked amazing. Dave was of course my assistant during the process.

Your trash my treasure

So I love the end of the month in my neighborhood its when everyone(the rich folk) can throw all their crap on the street and the garbage man will take I have been desperately looking for a queen box spring. I have been looking on Craig's list for the past month. So I finally found one on Monday for $30 bucks. I was jumping up and down so happy I found one. So I planned on picking up the box spring the next day..well of course when I got home from work that day I see something on the side of the road...its a box spring..someone was throwing theirs like I said "your trash my treasure" I immediately ran across the street and started to drag the bed across the road by myself cause I didn't want someone to take my treasure. Luckily the "swans" delivery man was driving by and decided to help me(I also got some FREE ice cream sandwiches,they are the bomb!) the box spring fit perfectly..i love it...
