New Addition

Our adorable grandson Pace Daniel was born Tuesday the 15th. Already he is joked to be an early favorite because of the use of my maiden name Pace. He is just precious and we are so excited to have him in our family.

Due to flu sesson, the kids were not allowed in the hospital but you could tell by their sweet faces that they were excited to have a little brother.
My friend Maria Nissen took our family pictures this year and they turned out great!

Halloween party

We had such a fun party this year that was packed full with different Halloween activities. We started off with face painting. Then we ate a delicious spooky dinner which followed with witches brew. We had our traditional costume parade. We then shared a spooky story where the kids had to touch a scary item. Next was mummy wrapping, then the ghost drop, pumpkin bowling and finally a spooky craft. It was quit a night!

Mission Call

After four weeks of waiting, last Thursday, October 1, our anticipated letter from 50 E. North Temple St. arrived in the mail. To keep myself sane, I spent the afternoon making food for the family gathering. By 7:00 with nearly the whole family together, I asked for guesses to be made of our assignment.

Then David opened the envelope and I was so relieved to hear: "Concepcion Chile Mission with the primary responsibility to be office specialists."
