big think

I happened upon this interview of John Irving on a website called It was interesting and well-made. To be honest, I can't vouch for the content on the rest of the website, but if you click on the "experts" tab at the top, there's a huge archive of interviews you can delve into. They have everyone from Nobel prize winners to the guy who owns Magnolia Bakery. I know this might be boring to some, but I could watch these all day.

Speaking of Magnolia, we finally tried famous the banana pudding. Wow.


Halloween is a big deal in the King family. We've been talking about costumes, practicing Trick-or-Treating and looking at Halloween books & catalogs since August. The boys decided to be Pixar characters for Halloween and LOVED dressing up–
Sawyer as Mike Wazowski and
Hudson as Buzz Lightyear.

We had our ward Fall Fest on Halloween, where there was food and fun, including trick-or-treating for the kids, a mini-carnival and a photo-shoot by Cameron of all the kids in their costumes. Check out how cute they are.

Cameron and me at the Fall Fest. Unfortunately we broke tradition, for a multitude of reasons, and didn't dress up this year. But don't worry– we'll be back in full force next year...

After the Fall Fest, we headed over to 69th, where they block off the streets just for trick-or-treating. We were all pretty much zombies by this point, but we managed to make our way down the street on our way home.

Hudson's Photo Shoot

Hudson stole my phone and went on a photo-shooting spree. He took 153 pictures and videos while I was doing the dishes. Here are some of our favorites:
