Spookables.......

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.

Tiara's Homecoming Dance

Brittny and I drove down to Pleasant View to watch Tiara dance during her High School half time. I have to apologize, I couldn't find her at first and so the camera went screwy, but I finally found her(in the back, on the far right side) and she did a beautiful job, we were so proud of her.....We love you T!!

Homecoming

Homecoming.......how would it be to be young again. Notice I changed the song to Forever Young. It was the theme for my senior year at Logan High School. The dances sure have changed since then. Now It is an all day thing, where you go somewhere fun during the day and then go to the dance at night. I do have to say I never got to go to a house as fancy as this one. All these pictures they took at her friend Mckay's house, where they ate dinner. This is also the same house they hang out at almost every weekend. Britt has such a great group of friends to hang out with, and Caden, well lets just say he's part of the family.........we love him to death!!

Mariah's friends.

Mariah had the hardest time when we moved, but it was'nt long before she discovered the cutest bunch of girls ever. They love to just be crazy and giggle and do all the things we could go back and do again if we could. They love to get together at night and play night games. They sit in her room forever painting toenails and fingernails. It is so important to find good friends and I am so proud of her for choosing girls that come from good familys and have good standards. I never have to worry when they are together. What fun times they have to look forward to.....and don't forget...........boys will soon come into the picture.

First Vistaun performance of the year.....



The very first Sky View football game was friday night. They played against Freemont High School. They had it up at the Aggie Stadium and the Vistauns performed at half time. They did a dance that they learned at camp up at Bear Lake during the summer.........Brittny is in the dark blue shirt on the right side......It's kind of hard to see her, I need a better camera.

Mariah

I just had to post these pictures of Mariah. I know I might be a little biased, but is'nt she beautiful? She did'nt even get ready, with the exception of having her hair done by my friend Allison. She has always been very photogenic, I don't think she has ever had a bad picture..........and by the way she did'nt get that from me.

Arrow Of Light.


Jackson worked so hard to earn his Arrow Of Light award. His Weebelos leader worked hard too, yeah that was me. He had to complete so many more requirements in the Weebelo program than he did in the previous years before. There were three other boys in his den that earned it at the same time......that was my doing. I thought it would be so cool if they got their arrow at the same time. We held pack meeting at Mack Park in Smithfield. We had an Indian come and present the Arrow Of Light, he even did an Indian dance for the boys.



Notice that my son has the most decorated shirt...........again that was me.

Jonathan and Jesslyn



We are so excited to have Jess in our family. She has been so much fun to get to know......Jonathan could not have picked a more vibrant and fun girl to be married to for time and all eternity. It was such a great experience to sit inside the sealing room at the temple and watch them be sealed together forever. I am so greatful that my own family is an eternal family.

Our Eternal Family....


For our temple anniversary, we took our kids down to temple square in Salt Lake City. I had'nt been there for over twenty years and had been wanting to go for a long time. So much had changed I could'nt believe it. We first went into the museum and got to see so much amazing stuff. They had a section for each president. Gordon B. Hinckley was my favorite. They had a picture of every temple he dedicated, his temple clothes and all kinds of stuff to represent the copious amounts of things he did for our church. The first floor of the museum was full of stuff from Joseph Smith. There was actual hand written manuscripts from when he translated the Book of Mormon, along with alot of personal artifacts.



My older girls loved looking at all the Book Of Mormons. They were in so many different languages. They especially loved the ones that went backwards.

They had a place that you could make these CTR images. Britt loved the ones in different languages. If you look close at the middle one it is in sign language.


This is my most favorite picture of all. Is'nt this where we want all of our kids to end up at....at Christ feet? I remember coming here as a little girl and it's amazing the reverence that you can feel here.
