Turkey Day 2009

This year we both ran in the Mesa Turkey Trot!
It was a warm day for a run and we enjoyed getting out and
burning the calories we'd later be adding on at dinner!
Spencer finished in 53 min 16 sec
and I finished in 1 hr 18 min 18 sec.
After the run we headed down to Tucson
to spend time with my side of the family.

We also celebrated our Grandmother's 91st birthday!
My cousin Stephanie made her fabulous present cake.

This Vasquez side of the family - 2009 Thanksgiving

Me and my favorite brother

Arizona State Fair

On Saturday night we and some friends went to the Arizona State Fair! The Fair is always fun to people watch, pet the animals, eat everything deep fried and enjoy the rides! Now I know the food is far from healthy but the gobs of grease just taste better at the fair. We enjoyed a ginormous polish dog and a pile of piggly fries. mmmmm
We had fun watching the smash derby!

Steve and Jenna had a mystery guest pop-up in their picture LOL

These are the cars at the Smash Derby. This was seriously one of the funniest things to ever watch. They paint their cars just to crash them into everyone else. Some even caught on FIRE!

Check out the cute Wallaby! and it's BABY in the pouch!
So tiny and so cute!!

me and the goat!
It was trying to eat my purse but was super friendly.

What a face! I LOVE LOVE LOVE piggies and want one so bad!

baby chicks!

The Grand Wheel

It was a fun ride looking at the lights of the Fair
and sneaking some kisses up high in the sky!

Fall Fun

For family home evening we carved pumpkins! It was so fun. This was my first time ever carving my very own pumkin. It was messy. It smelt kind of funny. But it was so so fun.
Our friends Krystal and Steve Humble came over to carve with us. Steve's was a death star from Star Wars and Krystal's was a cute jack-o-lantern.
I was having a creativity block so I just carved and S for my favorite name Smith :) and I was blown away with Spencer's talent and creativity. You can tell he's a big Simpson's fan by his carving of Crusty the Clown.

Ward Trunk or Treat
This weekend was our ward's annual trunk or treat and chili cook off. I was amazed by the competitiveness of some ward members and also by their fabulous chili cooking skills. We had over 20 kinds of chili and soup to chose from! No one went hungry. Some families had fun decorating their trunks and themselves for the treating part of the evening.
