Going to see Elder Ballard

Elder Ballard came to talk to our stake on Friday and Saturday! The Friday one was kinda funny because it was held in the trinity church-(cause' none of our church buildings are big enough to hold all of us). Cool story- the organ player that played at the Friday meeting is not a member and plays for a lot of different churches around the world. Anyway, some members of the ward drove him home and he was telling them that out of all the churches he has played at he has never felt anything like he felt out our church meeting!!
After the meeting on Sunday we got to go up to Elder Ballard and say hi and shake his hand! He is such a neat person!

Grandma came to town!

We got treated to dinner by Grandma Elaine while she was in Boston for a family reunion on Tom's side. We went to Friendly's, one of our favorite places out here, it was way fun to get to hang out with her for the night!

A little Halloween fun

Making pumpkin cookies with our nephew Jase!
Picking out the perfect pumpkin....as we were going up and down the rows trying to pick a pumpkin we turned out heads to the right and there it was glowing amongst the others....THE perfect pumpkin!
Carving pumpkins....so we had a pumpkin contest and Jase was going to be our judge. Ryan kept telling me that i wasn't allowed to cheat, like put a piece of candy in the pumpkin to persuade Jase to choose our pumpkin. When it came time to turn our pumpkins around to let Jase choose...i look over at Ryans pumpkin to see the three big words written across the top "Jase pick me", not to mention the picture of the car and a basketball drawn on it with permanent marker (Jase's two favorite toys).....so glad i played that fair...one thing you can always rely on when it comes to an Anderson and games/contests, is that there is ALWAYS a way to cheat...oops i mean win!hehe

The fall is so amazing here! I have never seen so many trees (not hard to believe being from St. George) and they are all sooo gorgeous when they start changing colors! This just might be one of my favorite seasons now!

Our mini...very mini cruise

To try something new, and of course because of the irresistable discount Kacey couldn't miss out on, we decided to go big and take a romantic day cruise-well atleast thats what the advertisement said! Our cruise turned out to be a tug boat with a couple tables and metal chairs placed in the middle, that took us around the coast of Boston. We didn't care though, atleast the sunset would be fun to see....that was until it started raining! BUT anything that doesn't involve anatomy and biochem books is still a blast!We had fun!

Our Wedding Day
