It's a R/C car thats designed especially for kid Trace's size. I've been so excited to get him one and about a month ago I actually had one and was considering buying it but I thought "no I'll wait for a better deal closer to Christmas!" Now I'm kicking myself.
Who knew that this would become the must have toy of the season. Every toy store is sold out of them and the only place you can buy them is on Ebay for, suprise suprise, double the price! As a mother it frustrates me to no end that people will extort those of us who want to give our kids something fun for Christmas! GRRR! So here I sit on Toys R Us's mailing list hoping one will come into stock before Christmas. And if anyone out there happens to find one out there I'd be happy to pay you back for it! Here's hoping your Christmas shopping is less stressful then mine will be. I have a feeling I may have to beat us a few people if I want one by Christmas! hehe

President Eyring spoke about debt and tithing (I'm not sure about you but we've been hearing the debt talk OFTEN). But I think my favorite thing that he said was that Heavenly Father want's ALL his children back, not just the good ones; that we shouldn't forget those who have strayed and that the only thing we need to do is be willing to repent. It was such a strong spirit that spoke to me as he said those things.
Sister Dibb told a story about how she made rolls for her wards YW and they were in awe of how good they were. She told them it was because they were just used to "counterfeit rolls." Then she encouraged us all to not settle for counterfeit anything and to seek the truth.
And my final favorite thought of the day was this, the Lord has put happiness within all of our reach, it is our fault if we don't find it. President Eyring was quoting someone else on that one and I can't remember who, but the thought is good all the same.

Jack - o - lantern. BOO
This week has been full of Halloween goodness. Wednesday afternoon we went to a party with some other little people in town and it was so much fun. The kids decorated cookies, played the hokie pokie and just had an all around good time.
