Annie's Aunt and Uncle have season tickets to the BSU games, but they weren't able to go to the game on Halloween, so they gave me the tickets. I decided to take my dad with me and even though we had off and on showers through out the game, we had a great time.

I had the opportunity to shoot some fall family photos of the Kolb family (Annie's cousin Michelle, her husband Tim, and their little girl Emerson) and it was a lot of fun. It took a little bit for Emerson to warm up, but once we let her run loose we got some great shots of her and some great ones with Mom and Dad too. Here are some of my favorites of the day.
This year for my birthday I invited my family and friends to go bowling. Unfortunately due to some family events, some of the friends that I invited were not able to make it. Heather and Brandon were driving home from Utah, and didn't quite make it in time for bowling either. So the group was small, but we still had fun.

*Side note: Since Annie's family that I invited couldn't make it, they had a fondue/game night for me to make up for it. We had a blast and the food was amazing, like always. I didn't get any pictures that night, but wanted to say thanks to the Boyles' family for a great evening, for their friendship, and for treating me like family. :)

After watching the movie Julie & Julia with Annie's Aunt's and cousins, we decided that we needed to have a Julie & Julia night of our own. We all chose recipes from Julia Child's cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Here are some pictures of the dishes we had.

Everything tasted delicious and all you could hear while we were eating was the sound of us chewing and sounds of MMMMM as we satisfied our pallats.
