Sorry Hillari that it has taken me so long. Read more to learn about the wonderful and amazing Trevor!

What is your husband's name? Trevor Brooke Compton (He is going to be so mad at me for revealing his middle name...he hates it).
How long have you been married? 9 1/2 years. 10 in June...crazy!
How long did you date? 8 months
How old is he? 33
Who eats more sweets? He does. I have a bigger sweet tooth though. I would probably eat more if I wasn't always dieting.
Who said I love you first? He did. I still remember him saying it. I said it right back. We were engaged about a month later.
Who is taller? Trevor, like by a 7 inches. I know, I know, I am short. Oh well, I can't change that.
Who can sing best? Trevor. He is quite the crooner when he has his guitar in hand. I love it when he plays and sings.
Who is smarter? Trevor. I like to think I am smart, but he is so much smarter than I am. I am glad that he can teach me things.
Who does the laundry? Me. He never does the laundry and I never mow the lawn. I guess that is our little agreement.
Who pays the bills? He does. This is a sore subject. He gets mad because I never do, so I told him I would, but he couldn't relinquish control. He is going to love me for that comment!
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Trevor
Who mows the lawn? Trevor. See above statement.
Who cooks dinner? I mostly do, but Trevor is really good at helping out. He always helps with the dishes or grills the meat for me. Thanks Hon!
Who drives? Trevor drives 60% of the time. Whenever we drive to Idaho Falls, we each take a leg.
Who kissed who first? It was a joint effort.
Who asked who out first? Trevor asked me out. Then he pulled "The Shun". He didn't call me for three days. So I called him and questioned him. Oh, the games...I really don't miss that at all.
Who wears the pants? Trevor thinks he does. :)

This is the Post that Never Ends...

I am going to apologize in advance for this post. It is all of October in one. Once you see the post, maybe you will understand why I didn't have any time to post until now.

Idaho Falls

So Trevor had to go to Orlando for work October 13th-18th and so we decided to go up and hang out with my family. We went to My little brother's cross country meet, picked apples and made apple juice. We had a really good time. My little brother is such a good runner. He is only a 9th grader and is on the Varsity cross country team. He ran a little over 18 minute 5K. Way to go Trev!

J.J. LOVES his Uncle Trevor. He calls him Little "T" since we have three Trevor's in our family and it is cute to see our little J.J. call him Little "T" with his mickey mouse voice.

The craziest thing though happened on my run. I wanted to run a 5K one morning and so I decided to run to my sister's house. She lives about 1 1/2 miles away from my parents so I thought, run there run back...perfect. For all of you I.F.ers, my parents still live in the same home and my sister lives out in Osgood. When I was about 20 yards from her house, I passed an animal that scared me half to death. I sprinted the rest of the way back to my sister's house. Here is what I saw...

Yes, a beaver!! I thought it was alive when I first ran passed. My sister, brother-in-law and I went to check it out and it was dead. I don't know why it was there. There was no damn near by or even a river. At least I was able to get a little sprint in for 200 yards.


We decided to go to Lagoon one last time before the season was over. Frightmares is my favorite time at Lagoon. The only problem is that we decided to go on the same day that everyone else in Utah went. We only stayed for about 2 hours because it was so crowded. I got some really cute pics of the kids though.

Pumpkin Patch

We decided to go to the pumpkin patch for Family Home Evening. We went with some friends and were able to have a few photo ops.

Halloween Carnival

Our ward had their annual Halloween Carnival. J.J. had a great time. I bought him two costumes this year so he decided to be Spiderman for the carnival and be Batman for halloween. I made Cate's costume. It was pretty fun. Here are the little cuties...again.

Halloween Party

Trevor and I were able to get rid of the little monsters and go to an adult halloween party. Costumes required. Trevor was Borat and I was Sarah Palin. It was really fun. We Played some Rock Band, ate too much food, and enjoyed some adult time. Sorry I don't have any pictures. I didn't bring my camera. Great Times!

Saturday Projects

Trevor and I decided we weren't busy enough and so we decided to start three projects and finish them before I had my big Christmas boutique at my House on Tuesday. We finished the backsplash for the downstairs kitchenette, rocked the fireplace, and painted the front door. It was a lot of work and I think they turned out great. Especially since we have never done them before (except the painting). Here are the after pics.

Primary Program

Yes, we had our primary program. Since I was the one who wrote and was in charge of it, lets just say that I was a nervous wreck...make sure all the kids were there, the soloists knew their parts, all the teachers would be there, would it be long enough or too long. It went without a hitch. J.J. memorized his part and he did a great job. He does such a good job in Primary. He is the youngest one in there and so I am glad when he can do things that the older kids can do. And the best part...we ended with two minutes to spare. Perfect.

Preschool Program
J.J. had his little halloween program for preschool. It was really cute. He practiced all of the songs before and he was really excited about it. He is always talking about this little girl named Gentry. I figured out why when I saw her at the program. She was Ironman for halloween. Not a fairy or a princess. His first little crush.


Halloween was a great day. It was pretty relaxed compared to the past few weeks. We went to the Harris' Halloween Weeny Roast and then went trick or treating with friends around the neighborhood and then we went up to Mountain Green to see Grandma and Grandpa. I love halloween.

St. George and Zion's National Park

After Halloween on Friday, we decided to head down to St. George. Trevor had some work there and so The family decided to tag along. We had a great time. It was beautiful weather and very relaxing. I am sorry for all of the photos, but I couldn't decide which ones to post. We came home late last night to have rain and snow. I am not too excited about that.

And that's all she wrote. Sorry for the longest post ever. On the list this week, waiting for my sister's baby to get here, family pictures on friday, and photo class on Saturday.
