We all gathered for a festive feast with Captain George and his First Mate, Bonnie. My she's a pretty lass, she is! All was well until we were attacked by Pirate Jack!
He was accompanied by 3 suspicious charterers, a one-eyed Vampire, a Musketeer and an midget Pirate (whom was the fieriest of all).

To our rescue came an Olympic Gymnast and a Wizard. With the Wizard's quick thinking he used a Banishing Spell and the Gymnast, well,

she frightened them with her amazing feat of body splitting! The wicked 4 ran away in fear!
All seemed to be under control until an Ugly Wicked Witch appeared from no where. She was followed by some scary flying monkeys.

In an instant the midget Pirate escaped from the Banishing Spell and took Bell captive. She tried to woo him with her poise and beauty. Just as he was weakening from her spell...

A TEENAGER appeared from no where! Armed with "BAD ATTITUDE" Bell's charms were useless.

Things only went from bad to worse as the Candy Monster descended upon us all. She coyly entices little ones with promises of candy and then she captures them when they least expect it.

Then, from out of the sky, came BUZZ LIGHT YEAR, WOODY, JESSIE AND EMPEROR ZURG!

Jessie cookin up the weiners!!!

Kristy, Gina Martin and Faith

The evening ended well, everyone safe and best of all-well fed with LOTS AND LOTS OF CANDY!

Another great Halloween!

--------Testimonies of Proposition 8----------

We have a great family in our Camarillo Second Ward; Jonathan & Kirsten Kent.
Jonathan sent me an email with this Captian Moroni picture and his testimony reagarding the importance of Prop 8. Jonathan is a GREAT graphic artist-as you can clearly see!

I couldn't say it better myself! Thank you Jonathan!

"Ever since we started knocking on doors, the story of Captain Moroni has been on my mind. He made himself a banner that read, 'In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children.'
He then said, 'Behold, whosoever will maintain this title upon the land, let them come forth in the strength of the Lord, and enter into a covenant that they will maintain their rights, and their religion, that the Lord God may bless them.' The people then 'came running together with their armor girded about their loins'.
This year's election is next Tuesday, and we have been asked to uphold the same rights Moroni fought to keep for his people. Please make sure you are one of those who comes 'running' this Saturday through Tuesday to support the cause of freedom! "

Elder Neil A. Maxwell said this,
"Make no mistake about it, brothers and sisters, in the months and years ahead, events are likely to require each member to decide whether or not he will follow the First Presidency. Members will find it more difficult to halt longer between two opinions. President Marion G. Romney said, many years ago, that he had 'never hesitated to follow the counsel of the Authorities of the Church even though it crossed my social, professional or political life.'"This is hard doctrine, but it is particularly vital doctrine in a society which is becoming more wicked. In short, brothers and sisters, not being ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ includes not being ashamed of the prophets of Jesus Christ. . . . Your discipleship may see the time when such religious convictions are discounted. . . . This new irreligious imperialism seeks to disallow certain opinions simply because those opinions grow out of religious convictions."Resistance to abortion will be seen as primitive. Concern over the institution of the family will be viewed as untrendy and unenlightened....Before the ultimate victory of the forces of righteousness, some skirmishes will be lost. Even in these, however, let us leave a record so that the choices are clear, letting others do as they will in the face of prophetic counsel. There will also be times, happily, when a minor defeat seems probable, but others will step forward, having been rallied to rightness by what we do. We will know the joy, on occasion, of having awakened a slumbering majority of the decent people of all races and creeds which was,till then, unconscious of itself. Jesus said that when the fig trees put forth their leaves, 'summer is nigh.' Thus warned that summer is upon us, let us not then complain of the heat." --- Elder Neal A. Maxwell

Sign Waving for Proposition 8

The Truth is Always More Interesting Than Fiction

LOVE THIS!!! Samuel the Lamanite ROCKS!!!

Well, as you can see, the Morris Family supports Prop 8. We were excited to attend the Prop 8 Bus Rally held in Camarillo last Sunday. It started 1 hour before our Sunday church meeting began so we dressed for church and left for the Rally. Brie, Josh & Zach were all excited to go. They really got into the spirit and waved posters and shouted "Yes on 8" to drivers on the street. I was proud of them as they signed the poster indicating their support for Prop 8.

All seemed to be going fairly well. As we listened to the different pastors and Rally speakers Jade & I asked each other, "Where is Zachary?" Because of the size of the crowd we couldn't see him, but figured he wasn't too far away and most likely with friends. When the Rally was over, we all gathered and got into the car to leave for church. When Zachary got into the car we noticed that he had a baseball. He said that he found it and asked everyone he could if it belonged to them. As there were no takers he thought he would take care of it.

Well, I thought no more of it until today when a friend of mine called. She was online looking for news coverage of the Rally. She thought she found a photo of the Rally but couldn't recognize a photo of the child throwing the baseball. Yes-you guessed it-it was Zachary.

Now the FUNNY part of this whole story is that the coverage my friend came across online and where she found the picture of our cute Zachary was on an ANTI-PROP 8 website!!!

I'm not sure the Morris family should go to anymore Rally's-we might be doing more harm than good.
