All Kinds of Vampires

Vampires every where! These are the vampires I love most of all, besides Edward of course!

We were a parade of vampires, it was so much fun. Parker and Makay really fit the part too, can't you tell? I played down the makeup on the kids for the ward party but some of the other kids still said they were scary. I noticed that ours was the only family that had anything remotely scary. Everyone else were fairies, monkeys and traffic lights. Oh well.
That's me, the scary mom. Not many adults dressed up at our ward party. . . lame! My friend told me that if she didn't know me I could totally pull off this look. I don't think that's a compliment, or maybe my makeup was sooo good that it convinced her. Either way the Bishop didn't know what to say to me, it probably didn't help that he doesn't know me that well.

This was our ency, weensy spider. Too cute!!

Terrible picture, I know, but it was the only one we took. I go to book club with a few of the ladies in the ward and one of the books we read was Twilight. We decided to go to the midnight showing on the 21st. It was a ton of fun!

In Case of an Emergency . . .

Most of my time is spent at home with my five children who are six and under. One day I was pondering the possible outcomes if something was to happen to me. Do my kids know what to do in the event of an emergency?

At dinner I asked them. "Parker, what do you do if mommy falls down and won't wake up?"
Parker - "Get out of the house as fast as you can!"

I think she's definitely on a "save yourself" mode. I was hoping Eastons answer would be better. "Easton, what do you do if mommy gets hurt and you can't wake her up?"
Easton - "Stop, drop and roll!"

I guess I know what our next Family Home Evening lesson should be about.
