Oh, Fall.

So, I must say, Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the leaves, the cool crisp air, wearing sweaters and boots, cuddling, apple cider, friends, pumpkin cookies (well really any kind of cookies, cakes, or pies for that matter), Halloween, Thanksgiving, family, football games, good food. We had a wonderful fall-filled weekend, it was perfect.

On Friday I made some yummy corn-bread and chilli and then headed to the football game with our good friends. It was a lot of fun, and of course... BYU won! Go Cougars!!

Saturday was about as perfect as they come. We started off the day with a power-house session of General Conference along with some delicious omelets (courtesy of Mr. Nick Jonutz,) and my famous Mickey Mouse Waffles. We were so glad that Jill and Nick came to watch conference with us! After conference, we took a ride up the Alpine Loop to look at all the BEAUTIFUL leaves. If you have the opportunity and haven't done it yet, GO! Before its too late. The colors were unbelievable - red, yellow, orange, pink, green - as Eric said, it looked like a bowl of fruit loops. We absolutely loved it - it reminded me of all the times my parents packed us in the car and took us on 5 hour drives to look at the leaves. I didn't appreciate it back then, but it will definately be
a tradition in our family.

The pictures definately don't do any justice - just go see it for yourselves!

While Eric was at the Priesthood Session, I went out to dinner with the Bennett women - o how I love them, and the dinner was good too. Zupas.... yum. That night we headed back up to Sundance to do the Full Moon Chairlift rides. I thought it was about the most romantic thing in the whole world! We took blankets, hot cocoa, and a treat - hopped on the chairlift and rode up the mountain underneath the glow of the full moon. Even though we both complain about living in Utah, there are some definate benefits :)

Please ignore my droopy left eye - I'm currently having contact issues.

We loved the rest of Conference and feel so blessed to be members of a Church with a true and living Prophet on the earth!

My mom and sister are coming out this week...Finally! Can't wait!
