On Halloween we continue the Stapley family tradition by going to my parents house, having some dinner, and enjoying the trick-or-treating festivities. I dressed up as Michael Jackson (R.I.P.) and Josh dressed up as a member of was fun. I'll never get to old to dress up, and luckily I married a man who loves it just as much.

Unfortunately, we had a negitive turn of events at our party. My grandma Pete showed up complaining about chest and body pains (all symptoms of a heart attack), it took a while of convincing because she didn't want to miss the party (that's my grandma for ya!). But we finally got her to go to the E.R. She ended up having to stay overnight at the hospital while they ran a bazillion tests. I guess they all came up negitive so she was able to go home today. Get feeling better grandma! (P.S. check out the picture of Romeo....we put him in the pirate adorable). In other news, Josh is still as busy as one can be juggling school and work. Luckily he has just over a month before he graduates and then we'll finally get some more time together and he'll get to breathe a little easier.

Fall Festivities

Fall is such a fun time of year. I love the weather and upcoming holidays, Josh loves the football, makes for a happy household :)
Last weekend my fam came down and we went to this farm place in Pleasant Grove. They had a petting zoo, potato sack slide, corn maze, etc. We enjoyed ourselves walking around and then did the corn maze at the end. We made it out of the corn maze successfully, which i was proud of, beacuse usually I find a shortcut and give up.

Can't wait for Halloween next dressing up!

Snow College Alumni

We visited one of my most favorite places this weekend....Ephraim, UT! I loved my 2 years at Snow College, loved them. Josh & I went to the Homecoming football game-it turned out to be a great game and Josh had a good time getting to see all of his old coaches again. After the game we went to Fat Jacks (it's called Roy's now), for some delicious pizza. You can't ask for a better Snow College visit than that.
The rest of the weekend we spent in Orangeville. There is a new addition to the Sharp family, the adorable baby Parly. We went to her baby blessing on Sunday and spent the day hanging out with the family. It was a great weekend.....and now it's almost real life time starting tomorrow. Yuck.

Goodbye Dwain

Yes, it's true, our tiny fury hampster friend Dwain has found a new home. We had a good time with Dwain, sometimes, and it was time for him to take the next step.

Truth be told we got the hamster when we thought we couldn't get a dog. Then, of course, a month later we got the okay to get Romeo and then we were stuck with Dwain. Let's admit it, we're not hamster people, and thats okay. That is why we found a new home for him.

Dwain, have a good and fufilling life. Long live the Dwainster.
