The BIG 21!

Tomorrow (the 23rd) is Garrett's 21st birthday!

I just want to take a moment and say Happy Birthday, Garrett. You bring so much joy and love and adventure to my life. I love you so much and am so grateful that I get to wake up to you every morning. :)

You are funny, creative, talented, caring, loving, handsome, hard working, a spiritual leader, and someday the father of my children. Thank you for being you, I couldn't ask for anything more. :)

I love you....

and HAPPY stinkin BIRTHDAY!!!!

Table Rock

I love that we have something in Boise like Castle and Table Rock to hike. Plus, the beauty of that cross that sits on top is something that really gets me. It is really peaceful up there. Garrett and I climbed up Table Rock multiple times this summer and in the Fall when it was warmer. But since it has gotten a lot colder we decided to drive to the top of Table Rock the other day.
Good idea...but I wasn't diggin it when we reached the top and got out of the car. It was so windy! I was afraid that we would get blown off the edge! haha. Not really, but it made me very chilly and a little bit of a baby. So, I ran back to the car while Garrett took a true artist I guess, doesn't matter what the weather it like. :)

We had a really fun Halloween this year. We didn't get dressed up, but I did get to wear a really cute jack-O-lantern necklace that I bought just for the occasion. Garrett got off of wok at 3:00 on Friday, so we were able to enjoy a lot of Halloween night.
We first decorated our pumpkins, and they turned out so cute! I just love them. This is the first year that I didn't carve them and decorated instead...I think that I will continue with the decorating in the years to come. It is a lot less messy, they last longer, and they are so creative!

After decorating our pumpkins, I made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, which were delicious! Then we watched "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown," while we ate our jack-O-lantern pizza from Papa Murphy's. It was really yummy!
When it got a little later (around 7 o'clock) we headed to my grandma's house for her annual Halloween party. It was fun hanging out with family and eating a lot of delicious treats! Trenton dressed up as his favorite person ever... Mario! It was really funny.

So overall it was a great Halloween!
