Going Hiking

It was a perfect day for a hike up the mountain behind us. We just found out that they are going to start the next phase in our subdivision. So the trail that leads us up to the kids favorite "ROCK" is going to soon be a road. It's actually pretty far up to the rock. They have to go past the telephone polls and through a barb wire fence to get to it. There is also a little creek at the top that they think is way cool. Jackson and Dylan went almost all the way to the top of the mountain, but they thought they heard a rattle snake, so they came back down. We will be sad when its all houses, but for now it's fun to hike up and see the whole valley.

The Rock!!

July Fourth

My darling sister in law, Annilee, you sure make me look like a bad blogger. So....... this one is for you girl. If your lucky I might even post another one by the end of the week:)

We did neighborhood fireworks this year for the first time. Our neighbor Jeff had connections in good old Wyoming, so we had the really GOOD kind. I am still amazed we evaded the cops. I had a box of glow sticks that the kids were making hand cuffs out of and arresting each other. And of course Hunter had the blasted innertube's out that she has been dragging around with her all summer........only Hunter:)

This is my most favorite time of the year......fall, and my most favorite holiday...Halloween. I have been wanting to post these pictures for a long time. I actually have had my house decorated since labor day.....I know, I am crazy, but I actually start thinking about putting it all out in August.........I just love it so much. I didn't take pictures of everything because I have things tucked in every nook and cranny. I didn't even put everything out this year because it was hard to find places to put everything. My old house seemed to have more place to decorate, even though this house is so much bigger. I kind of put these in order as you would see them as you walk in. Enjoy....

These are my Dept. 56 houses. I didn't put all of them out, because I dont have enough room. They all do something special. The one in the middle has lightning and thunder and flashes all kinds of cool stuff. Jada hates that one because it has a really creepy guy that laughs in it, and it scares her. My favorite is the windmill, it turns and has a really mysterious wind sound that accompanies it. They are an absolutely a no touch thing. My kids have always been good to leave my stuff alone, but these are really expensive, so they are forbidden to even turn them on.

Yes, I do a Halloween tree. I actually do one for all of the holidays, or the seasons. The bee tree that I do in the summer is my favorite.

This is my Kitty, and I put a flicker bulb inside of him so it looks like a candle is glowing in it.

I have been collecting little Halloween house forever, I think they are so much fun.
