Halloween and other happenings!

Halloween day started off by a showing on our house (yippee), a fabulous photo shoot from sears...(they are cheap & turned out cute & they were not Halloween pictures...I just choose this time of year for the yearly shoot ;) ) and a night full of trunk or treating. The pictures aren't that great of the kids, so I may just have to put them in their costumes again for a few photos.
My trick or tr eaters consisted of
1) A hot wheels race car driver
2) A stinkin cute bumble bee
3) An adorable chubby lady bug!
This year by far was most enjoyable. The kids would ACTUALLY say those magic words "trick or treat" and then (I have ALWAYS told them that in order for that goody to stay in their bag,) they HAVE to say thank you,(or the giver is entitled to remove the treat...am I mean?)
Madi loved it and wanted to leave the ward trunk or treating and go actuall trick or treating. We have a few of the grannies that EXPECT us to stop by every year so we did go visit them. Lily LOVED it too! She was sucking on a sucker the whole time enjoying the weirdness of the world. (that's what Riley calls it.)
So that was our Halloween.

Our house showed this past Friday to an older couple from California that had already looked at it once before....they were at our house for quite some time (I was hiding out...peeping at them from my neighbors house...ssshhh don't tell) and scheduled another visit Saturday....
While they were here, my realtor called and said....


























keep going



















THEY WANT TO PLACE AN OFFER!!!!! Although, it was not the offer we hoped for, we were able to counter offer back and forth a bit.....and now are sleeping on the decision.....They are retiring in August and won't move in until then....so the plan, if all goes well....is we will take their offer, close on the house Dec 31st, and live here "rent free" (reimbursement, if you will, for a lower offer) until Bill is finished with our new house.
We shall sleep on it, so who know's??..???zzzzzzz.........zzzzz.
We will make a decision on Monday.

Privacy Issues.......
I don't want to put my blog private....I don't feel like sending out a whole bunch of invites to you all......so I will be removing names and personal things I feel fit worthy of removal.....
I want to have "nick" names for us all.....so please, please, give me ideas....it will be a contest...I don't know what you'll win, but if you're lucky, it will be something.
I will narrow it down to a few and have a voting on them.....
Please Please participate and help me fill this void I have with creativity-ness...

Lily's birthday post will be in a few days, I was going to do it tonite, but I am suppose to be preparing my talk for Sacrament meeting tomorrow,..well I guess it's this morning now...oh my...
goodnite!

I just tried to upload the Halloween photos....and they are on the internal memory of my camera...and I've never done that before and it is waaaayyy to late for me to try to figure it out...so I'll have to figure it out tomorrow after Church.

I'm sooooo happy that you guys are able to sell your house!!! CONGRATS! I'm sure you're so relieved!

As far as making your blog private... it's interesting that you bring that up because I've been feeling like I should maybe make my blog private, just to protect us from wackos. It's just so hard because a lot of people care about Mercy and how she's doing. Urg. Why can't everyone just be good, happy, righteous, SAFE people???? I wish I had a good idea to offer you. I'll keep my brain going... maybe I'll be able to think of something.

Mark and Lachelle said...

Yay on the offer! Keep us posted with that. And I was thinking of some "nicknames" for ya....All I've come up with so far is; Iley, Adi, and Ily. Yeah, not much help. Sorry. I'll keep thinking :)

Bill & Jen said...

Oh my Lachelle! LOL

Jana said...

Congrats about your house... wahoo! About nick-names: I know some people who use Disney names. Or names of favorite food! Lily could be Ladybug :)

Leah said...

WooHoo an offer! That's great news. And I want to see those Halloween costumes... they sound so dang cute! I am also lacking in the creativity department so good luck with those nicknames! JD has thought that I should go private but I just don't want to, so giving nicknames is a good idea. I'm just not too concerned about it yet. Maybe I should be??? And I got to say, I love your new blog background... Yeah for Twilight!! Is that Edward and Jacob?? Cuz if that's Jacob he is WAY hotter than Edward.. doh!

Megan said...

Congrats on the house!! Thats awesome! Yeah, I don't have any good ideas on nick names either...its kinda nice that you're not going to private, its such a pain, but I definitely hear you on not wanting personal info out there on your blog.
Um maybe you could just use your kids initials or something for nick names....haha I don't know.

ARe you coming for a visit anytime soon? I want you to feel my hair and see if I can do the crazy short thing I showed you. If not, I REALLY need a hair cut. Thanks your the best!

Leah said...

Jenny!!! I love that pic of your kids. They are gorgeous! How did you get all of them to smile and look at the camera?? That is a good photographer!
