It's a Hit!

So I recently posted a picture of some cute Halloween treats I made for a photo shoot on my website blog (click here to see it). The image also got accepted on Foodgawker and Tastespotting (two awesome sites for finding recipes and pretty food pictures). I submit photos to them on a regular basis. Sometimes they get accepted, sometimes not. Normally when they get accepted the number of hits (per day) on my website jumps from 15ish to about 300. Well... the two days after the images were accepted I had 800 and 1400 hits. Crazy!

Ironically, I didn't like the image as much as I thought I would but the cute owl cupcakes were what made it so popular. Those definitely are cute. Well... The second day I got an email from the site where I found the idea for the cupcakes. She said she had had a lot of traffic on her site from mine. She thanked me for posting the cupcakes on my site and asked if I would be interesting in assisting/helping them with their next photo shoot. As you can imagine I was thrilled! She thinks the next shoot will be sometime in December (after their photographer has her baby). So I'm looking forward to that! Yay!

Bill was Baptized

Two week ago my Grandma's husband Bill was baptized. It was an amazing experience. All of the 8 missionaries that helped teach him were there, along with about every other missionary in the area. All of the grandchildren sang two songs and the missionaries sang the closing song. There was standing room only in the room with the font. He has a lot of people to support him. Here are a few pictures:

This is a cake that Karron and Kimberly made to celebrate Margo's birthday while we were there.

We stopped at the falls because I haven't seen them (that I remember). The ducks were lined up all long the edge of the fall for about a mile. I wish I could have captured a longer line of them.
