And I'm pretty sure we killed it. Bethany Hamilton would agree...and also appreciate our sense of humor.
I'm glad Porter doesn't get offended when I come home with an epiphany like, "oh my gosh we have to be a shark and that surfer girl for Halloween...it would be hilarious!"
Now the hard part is coming up with something just as epic next year. Challenge accepted.
Anyways, we went to the ward shindig last night. We took our adorable nieces and nephew with us.
*Insert bragging moment here*
So we were babysitting because Porter's sister, Sarah, and her husband, Weston, were at a reunion dinner. Sarah ran cross country at BYU and was a national champ...no big deal. Anyways, they are honoring the cross country team at the BYU v. Boise State football game tonight, so we had the honor of tending the cute little kiddos while they were at a special dinner. It was nice to bring kids with us so we weren't like some weird couple just kickin' it at the trunk or treat with the small children all around.
Naturally, the children in our ward who don't know Porter were fascinated by the costume. They kept patting him down to try and find where he hid his arm. My niece Lyda was watching as these kids came up and examined her uncle. I think it was kind of strange for her to see people so mesmerized by Porter's arm because she doesn't know any different.
After a curious little boy finished his examination of Porter (who was like the 10th kid to come and look at his missing limb), Lyda turned to me and said with a straight face and a little sass, "All the kids here are weird." Hahahahaha, I died. Oh how I love her so.
So I then had to ask, "Why do you think they are weird Lyda Bea?"
"Because they are all touching Porter," Lyda replied.
"Oh, they are just curious because they haven't seen anything like that before," I told her.
Lyda sat quiet for a second and then said, "Well, they have never seen me before and they aren't touching me!"
Touche little one, touche.
Happy Halloween to all of our lovely readers!
