I should be writing about the joy of the Holiday season, but I just found out that our credit card has been stolen.....again. Does this happen to anyone else? This is the second time in the past 4 months for us. Our card was used for some online purchases and to top it off our address changed. The credit card company said they received a change of address notification from the post office, so they changed it without calling to verify things with us! If you are a thief you don't have to be too smart since the companies that claim to be secure don't really seem to have good safety measures in place. This has happened to us several times in the past few years. Once with our debit card which was used to buy about $500 worth of stuff at Sears about 1 week before Christmas. Definitely not a good time to have your account tapped into! I have had enough! I rarely shop online and now I will never shop online. What a pain!
It's been a busy few weeks. The boys went on a campout and Grandpa and my brother were able to go along and add to the fun! Mike made some delicious dutch oven desserts for everyone and the kids had a fun time shooting the BB gun. We took a trip to the local pumpkin patch for our pumpkins which we didn't carve. We added Mr. Potato head parts to dress them up instead! Julia dressed up as Sleeping Beauty for her Ballet class and the girls did a "Witchy" dance for the parents. So cute! We went to our ward Halloween Carnival and the kids loaded up their bags with prizes, cookies and candy! So much fun! P.S. We are headed up to Idaho this week to go to my nieces Baptism. So excited to see everyone!
