I can't believe October will be over in a couple of hours. This month has just flown by. A lot has happened and we've been slacking a the blog. Jamie and the kids went to Disneyland and the beach last week and had a blast. Work has been busy for me. I think Facebook is the biggest culprit though.

The kids were very excited to go trick-or-treating tonight. Brandon was a Blues Brother, Kaylin and Kylie were ballerina's (Jamie made the tu-tu's herself), Steven was the Sith Lord himself, Darth Vader, and Tyler was a firefighter. Jamie and I went as Adam and Eve, fig leaves and all. Just kidding. Neither of us had a costume for the occasion.

Here are some pics of the kids.

The camera was tricked by the reflective parts of Tyler's costume.

The kids and their cousins.

Tyler really wanted some candy.

Christmas is already just around the corner.

Temple in Concepcion, Chile

President Monson of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced yesterday that the church would be constructing a temple in Concepcion, Chile - where I served my mission from 1996-1998. I am extremely excited for the members of the church down there. During my mission, church leaders were looking for the right spot for a temple. So this announcement has been in the works for at least a decade.

Here's a view of Concepcion. You can click here if you want to learn more about the city (and I know you do).

I can't wait to see what it's going to look like. I've told Jamie that we're going to go there some day.

Here's a picture of the Santiago Temple - the only other Temple in Chile.
