Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . carving pumpkins with the kids. Yes, we embraced the chaos, and we had such a good time that we'll probably do it again next year.
. . . getting a high five from Sam Gamgee at the ward Trunk or Treat activity, because I knew his wife's name without having to ask. Yes, I am a geek.
And another thing . . .
. . . Joy's pumpkin rind was apparently made of organic steel. We bent a kitchen knife trying to puncture it, then Phillip brought out a power tool to get the job done.
