"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Wilson Halloween Extravaganza!

Potions, and Bingo, and mummies- oh my! We had witches, and zombies, and a pirate- no lie! 

Grace's Blessing and Madeleine's Confirmation

On Sunday we got to have a special sabbath in Evanston as Grace was blessed and Jason's daughter Madeleine confirmed. My favorite part was when Shanna shared her testimony. She had some really long and trying years, and to see her happy and so richly blessed is a testament of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When you follow His plan, there is no greater joy. 

We love being with our family! We were missing a few of the siblings, but we had such a great time. It was the perfect way to start out the month of November. 

Happy Halloween!

Real trick-or-treating with your best friends is the only way to go! The big kids lost us quickly as they sprinted from house to house, and there was nothing cuter than the surprise the little ones had on their face each time they knocked on a door to receive another piece of candy. Paige and Runey Carter talking about their costumes and candy, and holding hands as they went from house to house was the sweetest! We had a great holiday.
