october is finally upon us!
on saturday the whole fam damily went to a "pumpkin patch"(more like someone's big backyard with a barn and some pumpkins and they charged an exorbitant admission).
i milked a cow. even though it was fake, it was still gross.
this particular part of the "farm" was disturbing. it was a giant air-filled contraption that resembled a gigantic tapeworm. the kids climbed in the mouth...
...and they exited here. at the end. it was gross. like a science class right up close.
and my halloween seasonals are up!!! okay, they have actually been up since mid-september, but some people at my house think that is weird. i just like to get my money's worth
and the most shocking news of the conference was the announcement of a temple to be built in the greater kansas city area. oh the joy that fills my heart! i cannot begin to describe my elation at this news. i had to listen to the announcement three times before it truly sank in. i was so taken by surprise! i had always written off the possibility of a temple in this area in the near future. just two weeks ago we dedicated our new stake center(large regional church building) in the area and now this. we are so blessed. seriously.
i have heard rumors of where the temple will be built, but i prefer to play location speculation! i can think of a few areas just down the road from my house that i think would be perfect locations! hurray!
