Chase did a lot of shooting with the boys, including clay pigeons and us girls even went up and gave it a whirl. Let's just say, I am not a good aim!! We also got to spend lots of time with our neice and nephew on the Cook side!! That was my favorite part! Makell was so much fun to play with and she is sure becoming a little spit fire!! And baby Tye is growing sooo fast!! He is the cutest little man ever!!

We also did a costume contest. Chase won the Scariest Costume. Dustin won the Funniest Costume, and The Clarks picked up the BEST COSTUME!
If you are one who is easily offended, I recommend not scrolling down. :)
On actual Halloween night, we went up to a party in Logan. My friend and I went as "Girls Gone Wild" girls! It's not what your thinking... we made fake boobs out of nylons and stuffing and sewed them to our sports bras!! I thought it was hilarious... but that is just me. Chase was the "devil" that made me do it! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

The story goes as follows:
After we finished up with carving, Camille and I were sitting around and I heard this beep. I kind of looked around to see if I could see anything flashing and there was nothing. I asked Camille if she heard it and she did. The beep continued on intervals of around 10 - 15 minutes. I decided to ignore it for the night and just go to bed.
The days went on and the beep continued to irritate me. I had pin-pointed the location to the kitchen near and around the stove & microwave. On my day off I decided I was going to find what it was. I unplugged, reset, moved, rearranged and anything else possible, still no luck. Thursday I almost went insane because of the beeping. I had spent 4 hours baking treats for our Halloween party on Friday and the entire time the beeping continued. You can imagine - - it was something like the Edgar Allan Poe poem "Tell Tale Heart".
Saturday was my day of success! I was cleaning things up from the party and gave one last shot to find the annoying sound. I pulled the oven out (for the 3rd time) and VOILA'!! I found this:
Note: in the bottom left corner is the word ANNOY!And the culprits were Camille and Kelly themselves. One word Jaques' - - REVENGE!! Just you wait for it!

Second... Chase and I got a new nephew!! Mr. Tye James Cook was born on Aug. 31st! My brother Jason and his wife Laree welcomed him with open arms! But how could you not when he is so stinkin adorable! I'm a proud auntie and even got him a bib to prove his love for me! It says "I love my Auntie!" He is going to be a heart-breaker for sure!
And the last excitement we have had was going to Peach Days in Brigham and enjoyed some famous peach cobbler! While we were there we HAD to ride one carnival ride and we chose "SPIN OUT" - - for those of you who are unfamiliar with the carni rides, it is similar to the Samurai at Lagoon. Holy cow, I was ready to cry by the time we were done! Hands down, best carnival ride ever!!! Also, we were able to see Jon Schmidt perform his "Taylor Swift meets Viva la Vida" song! It was amazing! Again, truly a major motivator to get my piano inside my house!
Stevi & I - -so excited to see Jon Schmidt
And to finish the night, we headed up to Mantua to camp! We found a spot at "Dock Flat" :) It started out as an eventful night and continued to progress! While there I showed how we Idaho girls gather firewood! We had neighbors who came over to invite us to their "camp party" - - we declined. Then later they started shooting guns! Totally not okay in the hunters safety guidelines. I feared for my life for a few! But then they quit. We camped out under the stars in the back of the truck! Such a great time! Cheesy filled hot dogs + The Phillips' + The Sherman's=LOADS OF FUN! It is going to be must every year!

Friday night we got to have dinner with all of Dave's kids. He has 4 daughters!! The Phillips' don't know what to do with this many girls around! It was a lot of fun spending time with them and getting to know one another! There is always that fear of mingling two families - - what if we don't get along?! But it was meant to be. I think we all clicked pretty good!
