Today was Alli and Nick's first Halloween! They were both monkeys and their cousin Lindsay was a monkey too - so we had 3 little monkeys! Alli and Nick didn't go trick-or-treating since they can't eat candy yet, but we did visit a couple of neighbors and grandma and grandpa came over to see their costumes and have pizza. We put the three monkies in a crib to jump while we sang their theme song to them and they loved it except Lindsey who isn't quite jumping yet and didn't appreciate the wild monkey cousins jumping on her!

I washed rags yesterday. I pulled them out of the dryer, put them in a basket, and left them on the floor before I folded them. I got distracted for a couple of minutes while I was going through the mail - and guess what happened? Twinado. It didn't help at all that Alli is going through a silly phase where she loves playing peek-a-boo with blankets.

We went to our ward's annual chili cook-off and ho-down on Saturday night and had so much fun! We even dressed up for the occasion! Brian was being a poor sport and refused to wear his cowboy hat (even if we were the only ones that dressed up - yes I know it's a little dorky - but who cares!) By the way, if you can't tell my hair was in pigtails.
Brian made up a new chili recipe for the occasion. He didn't win, but it was my favorite chili! Alli and Nick even had some of the milder chili and they loved the dancing.
Thanks Valerie for sending me this picture! You did an great job planning this activity! We had so much fun!
We went on another hike a couple weekends ago (this time in Boulder) and I have some good pictures that I'll post soon!
