Overheard at the Valencic house...
HI, Jack Sparrow... I'm Superman! (and I "no-white!")
Snow White has since acquired Shrek ears and Superman turned into Spiderman.... and where did the Skeleton come from?
We love getting out the Halloween boxes.
Remember back on October 1st when Benjamin and I were on the field for Royals baseball practice? They took Benjamin's ball he brought and promised to get him some more signatures.
Well, they finally mailed him his baseball with some pretty cool autographs on it...

During General Conference, we move the pictures of the 12 Apostles and the First Presidency from the dining room to the family room as they give talks during the conference. Tom and the kids did this even with me being in Nevada. Today I just realized I hadn't taken a picture...

Aunt NaDean and Uncle Roger took Juliana and I around Las Vegas and we got to see places like where my dad's family grew up, some of the older church buildings, and the cemetery where some of our family is buried. We also got to walk around the Las Vegas temple grounds. I haven't been there since the Open House back in 1989.

A long, emotional day in Alamo, Nevada. (and Overton). My grandmother passed away on the 30th, and I was blessed to be able to come to the funeral and see my family at this time. It was the first time in 9 years that all 9 of my parents' children were together. We were sad because my grandmother was no longer with us, but so happy that she and her sweetheart were reunited at last, and that we got to be together because of it. Plus Jules got to meet everyone, too.
With Benjamin's birthday falling on the day I flew to Nevada for my grandmother's funeral, we had to improvise a lot this week. Including making lasagna on a night when Tom wasn't even home!
But here we are, with Benjamin's favorite birthday dinner...
Royals batting practice... ON THE FIELD! I won tickets to a Royals game and they came with batting practice passes... I didn't know they meant VIP treatment... I took Benjamin because his birthday was this week and I took Jules because she's free :)
