The long awaited Haupt Family Halloween party and "Pumpkin Carving contest" was held last night and the pressure was intensense. There were nine entries this year for the prestigous panel of non-bias judges to view and award prizes. The top three winners for the Haupt Family in the West Division were- Most creative-Theater Faces-Courtney Leavitt carver, Scarest-Casey Leavitt carver and Best Over-Goblin-Autumn Vaterlaus-Arnett- carver. We had a fabulous time ate great food and then sang "Happy Birthday" to Steve who will celebrate his birthday on Tuesday. Hope you all have as much fun as we did carving your Halloween Pumpkins. Happy Halloween!

Cameron is great at taking pictures of all of us with his long arm shot!
Steve and Cameron at the "Dudley Leavitt" and family memorial in Santa Clara, Ut. It was great to read about the Leavitt Family and see how much Steve and Cameron resemble their ancestors. Steve told alot of stories of his childhood, since he lived in Santa Clara for a while. We all got a few laughs over his stories.
Cameron and Thomas model our Christmas sweaters the night before our pictures, aren't they cute???? I see a sequal to "ELF" in the making!!!
We had such a fabulous time. Thomas had to take the picutes in Las Vegas, my battery died, so I will grab his pictures of touring Las Vegas next week. This Saturday is our family Halloween party and the rival "Pumpkin Carving" contest...stay tuned!

Saturday morning my friends Jill, Nicole and I participated in the "Strides against Breast Cancer" we went 4.2 miles. I ran, because I am trying to work up to running 6.5 miles. After the race, I froze, because the sweat on my back was soo cold. I had to come home and sit in the HOT Jacuzzi to warm my bones up. Another fun week and next week we are heading down south to check out Zions, Bryces Canyon and go 4-wheeling. Here's to good times, good friends and a great life!

Well, we woke up to a cold rainy day, so we went with Plan two. Plan two is watch conference, make cookies and decorate them with candy. So that is what we are doing today. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, Right! I think Thomas had a great time decorating the cookies, and hopefully we can go next weekend to see the leaves and hike to the cave.
Cameron and Courtney excited about all the cookies!
This cookie is the German Flag! Hummm, wonder who did this one???
Thomas is proud of his decorated cookies.
Crazy Cameron and his "Nose" cookie. Wish you were here to enjoy the cookies with us!
