...You're It

Well, I guess I've been tagged (thanks, Sarah) so here it is:

8 T.V. Shows that I love to watch:

Umm...I'm going to have to go with 8 T.V. shows I have loved to watch throughout my life because I can't think of more than two that I watch regularly. So...

1. Oprah
2. Rachael Ray
3. Martha Stewart (I'm laughing as I type this list. They're all women!)
4. The Office (When it's clean it is so funny!)
5. Everybody Loves Rammond (Always makes me laugh out loud)
6. Full House (comfort T.V.)
7. The Today Show (Minus Cathy Lee and Hoda who are incredibly obnoxious)
8. What Not to Wear (Let's be honest, who isn't entertained by watching people spending $5000.00 in 2 days?)
*I also love The Cosby Show*

8 Favorite Restaurants (Yum!):

1. Macaroni Grill
2. Olive Garden
3. P.F. Chang's
4. Mimi's Cafe
5. Cafe Rio (which we are sorely missing here in Kentucky)
6. Simon Pierce
7. Outback Steak House
8. Red Lobster

8 Things Happening This Week:

1. Taking McKay Trick-or-Treating (I can't wait)
2. Throwing our annual Halloween party (or, as Becky suggested, our annual Halloween "extravaganza")
3. Having the Missionaries over for Chinese food
4. Rehearsing the Messiah
5. Visiting Teaching (The month isn't over yet!!!)
6. Conference group
7. Play date with Lindsay (not that our children are actually old enough to play together)
8. Dressing up'll have to check our blog after Halloween to find out!

--more tag answers to come when McKay naps!

McKay had his first ever Halloween party with the ward.  He had a grand old time chilling out with brother Fayne... as you can see below.  A little guy can only take so much.

I must say, I think he made the best-looking tigger this ward (or any other ward for that matter) has ever seen.


And a few demonstrating his love for Rice Cereal... Yum!

Conference Study Group

In our ward here in Nicholasville, one of the Enrichment groups that the Relief Society sponsors is a Conference Study Group. It is wonderful and, in my opinion, such a good idea that it ought to be shared.
The basic premise is that every Thursday morning, all sisters are invited to the church to attend an hour discussion on a pre-selected conference talk. We usually have between 7 and 10 sisters who come. We open the nursery so the kids can play and park ourselves in a circle just inside the main doors (to make sure no children escape).
Since attending this lovely group I have gained an increased testimony of the fact that this is a living church, vibrant with revelation straight from living prophets. As I prepare for our discussion each week I find myself immersed in the pending talk and realize that each talk is directly applicable to my life. Because of this study group I have felt increased personal strength and commitment to the gospel as well as renewed determination to seek the Spirit daily.
If you are looking for a great Enrichment group, I would highly suggest this!

Grandma's Coming!

I finally found our camera with video capacity so here's a little McKay in action. He isn't smiling nearly as much as he does normally. He's too distracted by the camera but at least you get a little taste of his personality. Enjoy!

To nap or not to nap...that is always the question

Trying to teach a baby to nap is no easy task, especially my baby. He is active and alert and LOVES to be awake. This poses a problem for his mother who is worried he might have sleep deprivation (and who would also like 20 minutes to herself now and then). So, McKay and I spend much of our day playing a rather mixed up game of Red Rover. McKay lays in his crib and cries until Mommy "comes over" and finds him. So far it's McKay 3 - Mommy zip!
Luckily he's a cutie though. Here are some of the latest pics of him.
