Levi and I were called to be on the ward activities committee which plans all the wards parties or activities. These next couple of months we are going to be pretty busy with it. This last weekend we had our ward camp out. Then we are having a little trunk or treat in the church parking lot on Halloween, a fall festival/carnival around Thanksgiving, and of course the Christmas Party at the end of the year. It seems like they push all the ward activities to the last three months of the year because after the first of the year we don't have anything to plan for quite some time, which will be a good little break from all this planning! Anyways this last weekend we went up to Camp Lomia (which is the girls camp around here). It was pretty nice up there. We had great weather. We had a good time meeting new people in the ward and even getting to know some people we didn't know very well in the ward. On Friday night we had dinner, then a talent/skit show. Two guys in our ward got up on the stage and one was playing the guitar and the other started singing a Tenacious D song. If you don't know who Tenacious D is I will just tell you the lead singer is Jack Black. Needless to say the song was very inappropriate. But of course they edited quite a bit of the song. Good thing Levi and I were the only ones there who new what the real song was and we were laughing so hard!!! After the talent show a lot of us sat around the camp fire and had smores! YUMMY! The cabins up there even had bunk beds with mattresses to sleep on. It was really nice except for the fact that the bunk beds made the worst noises every time you even thought about moving. Squeeeeeek squeeeeeek squeeeeeek all night long. Then one of the kids that was sleeping in the same cabin as us fell off his bed and knocked down a coat rack on the way down. It sounded pretty bad. So pretty much that was the worse night of sleep I have ever had. On Saturday I got out of bed really early because I was sick of laying in bed all night with no sleep. Levi helped make breakfast for everyone. It was delicious. We went on a little hike and sat around and played games and then headed home to a nice hot shower and nice squeeeeek free bed. I fell on my bed and was out for 5 hours! That was the greatest nap ever!


Levi has been looking and looking and looking for an xbox since his birthday which was August 17th. He was looking for a newer model because apparently they were making them a little better so they wouldn't over heat as much! Every time we would go to any store that had Xbox's he would go and check out the dates of every xbox, but we couldn't ever find one with a newer date. Well I think he just got really sick of looking and since the price came down 50 bucks and I guess they are doing a holiday package where you get two free games with your purchase he caved in and bought one off of amazon. Now it is finally here! And guess what? We got one of the newer models! YES!!! Now Levi can't wait for Gears of War 2 to come out. That game is the whole reason he wanted to get an xbox. I am starting to prepare myself for the day and week to follow when it does come out because I am pretty sure I won't have a husband for that whole week!
