On Halloween Ayla got to come to Pinnacle where we work and trick-or-treat around the office.  She got SO MUCH CANDY.  The different departments were all decorated, some really scary.  I was worried that she wouldn't be ok with it, but boy did she love the scary stuff.  Those were the departments that she didn't want to leave.  She wanted to see every skeleton and every grave.  She would get really close and say "WOW! Dats so tool!"  Meaning wow, that's so cool!  And then she would throw a fit when I had to drag her away from the creepy decorations!

That evening we met at Kyle's house and went around his neighborhood with his brother's fam.  Every time a door opened Ayla would bolt into the house and I would have to go in and get her.  Embarrassing!  Eventually I just had to carry her because she was getting worn out and didn't want to walk and to avoid her running into every single house.  We had so much fun and were so glad that Kyle's family let us tag along.  They are the best!

I'm going to interrupt my holiday posts with a post all about love!  Aka Kyle.

On Saturday I came home from work, opened my door, and instantly noticed a trail of hershey's kisses.  My heart almost stopped!  I followed the trail into my bedroom where the bed and dresser were covered with kisses and hugs.  And on my dresser was a beautiful vase of flowers and a note written on my mirror. Seriously?!  This is like movie/fairytale stuff!  The note said"Six months ago I kissed a girl and I have been the happiest person in the world ever since".

How did I ever get so lucky?!  I didn't know it was possible to be treated so well.  I really am blown away by how sweet and loving and caring he is to me and to Ayla.  When he isn't around Ayla is saying, "Wanna see Tile?  I wanna see Tile!"  And in the car she'll say, "Wanna go to Tiles house see Jaycee?!"  That's Kyle's niece who she also loves.  She loves all of them, but she calls them all Jaycee.  :)  My favorite is when she just randomly says, "I love Tile."  Which happens at least twice a day.  I do too!

Kisses and hugs and lots of love!


Kyle's Birthday, Halloween Party, and Trunk-or-Treat.

Kyle just turned 22!  SO OLD!  :)  The Saturday before his birthday I planned a dinner with the Jett's and the Young's.  It was supposed to be a surprise but Jenaca might have let the cat out of the bag the night before at the corn maze when she said "See you guys tomorrow night!"  and Kyle was like "...what's happening tomorrow night?"  And I am a terrible liar/secret keeper and I couldn't stop laughing.  Sigh.

Kyle and I got to go to the BYU v. Idaho football game with his parents where I got to see my aunt Cindy and cousin Kyle.  And where I got a terrible sunburn on half of my face and my ankles... awkward.  Then we had dinner at Outback Steakhouse.  And of course I have no pictures from these events.

On Ky's birthday (the 25th)  I filled his desk with 30 balloons, a bunch of candy, and a Transformers birthday banner.  He loves Transformers! The poor guy had to deflate all of his balloons so he could work. And he had to deal with everyone in the office knowing it was his birthday!

That night we went to Applebee's with his family where they sang an obnoxiously loud birthday song and Ayla was a nightmare the entire meal.  Surprise, surprise.  Then we opened presents and ate cake at his house.  I hope he had the best birthday ever because I LOVE HIM and he is so great.

Green and yellow for Green Bay... obviously!

Happy birthday, Kyle!

Friday night the Jett's hosted a Halloween party.  There were games, food, and fun friends!  Kyle and I dressed up as zombie killers and Ayla was a puppy!  Next year we are so planning our costumes in advance.  We had to rush around like an hour before the party getting our costumes together.  Not being prepared is stressful!

Zombie killers!

Saturday my ward had their Trunk-or-Treat/Chili dinner.  We walked Ayla down there in her puppy costume and had a great time!  Even if we weren't there very long.  Ayla didn't get the concept of going from car to car.  She wanted to stop at every car, sit down with whoever was passing out candy, and was upset when we told her she had to keep going.  She had fun seeing all the other kids in their costumes though and she LOVED the popcorn and the hot chocolate she got!

My loves walking to the church.

Ayla and Kyle are best friends.

Ayla had to stop and play in the leaves on the way there!
mmm hot chocolate!

Trick or treat!

Haunted Ginger Bread House and Thanksgiving Point Round 2!

I am so behind in my blogging... and I have so many pictures!  I'm going to break up everything that has happened the past few weeks into mini posts!

A couple weeks ago we made gingerbread haunted houses at Kyle's house.  And by "we" I mean Kyle worked really hard on an awesome one and I tried to stop Ayla from destroying everyone else's and eating all the candy.  :)

He's so thrilled that I'm taking pictures...

Kyle's finished haunted house!  So great!

We also got to go back to Cornbelly's Corn Maze with our friends the Jett's and the Young's!  We brought the little girls along and it was so much fun!  I didn't bring my camera (seeing as I lost it at Lagoon) but Kyle took a few good pictures of Ayla!
