Mission goodbye visits

 Halloween at our house was sooo much fun this year with cousins, carving pumpkins together and a very scary front door after the creations were done.


  A tired sheik after the ward Halloween party at which we won the best costumes party!
Nothing better than the loot after a long night!
 Nothing says it better than this glorious picture!  We got to spend a weekend with Reagan in Florida in the Magic Kingdom.  She seriously struck this pose by herself and said spontaneously, "Dreams really do come true!"
 Ben found us a perfect place to all stay together.  It was a wonderful trip sharing a little girl's magical dream.
 The first thing we did was go to lunch together in the castle!!  Reagan got to be with all the princesses and decorate her own birthday cupcake.  It seriously made me and Molly cry! 

We had soooo much fun!  Especially dancing on Main Street together and riding the small world ride 10 times!

We were so thankful to have one last visit with Reagan, Ben and Molly before missing them for 18 months!
We were able to travel to Oregon to be with Nathan as he was ordained to the Aaronic Priesthood.  It was an awesome visit.  We were able to give Nathan his own personal power tool; symbolic of the power of the Priesthood which he now holds. 
We went to some amazing restaurants while there!  This was a special Moroccan place where we sat on low stools, wore costumes, ate with our fingers, no utensils, and enjoyed amazing food.  We also went to an Oregon specialty; ice cream with crazy but delicious flavors like pear and blue cheese, and a chocolate place that was unforgettable!  

Mostly we were so grateful to spend one last visit with Nathan , Aria and Marianne before leaving on our mission.  We will miss our dear family....every one!!
