Here are the kids ready to go to school on Friday in their costumes.
My Little Hannah
And Braxton as some kind of caped, swords man. Really I think he just wanted the hooded cape and sword to play with so he made up a character to get them.
Unfortunately dressing up for the school Halloween parade was all Braxton got to do, because he came down with the Flu on Saturday afternoon and had to stay home, but Megan was so nice and did extra trick-or-treating so that she would have lots of candy to share with him.
This is the cute skirt I made Megan to wear during the month. It turned out so cute.
Only in Arizona would you be working in the backyard digging in dirt and find these. . . . .
Yep, LIZARD EGGS!
Braxton asked if he could keep them and watch them hatch, but all the books we read said that it is very hard to hatch lizard eggs without special equipment, but we talked someone who told us to just stick them in a container with some wet dirt and set them in the garage.
SOOOOOOOOO! that is what we did letting Braxton know that they would probably not hatch.
BUT . . . . . .
They did hatch all 6 of them in fact. We could not believe it!
We had to let them go because we have not idea how to feed them or take care of them. Braxton was a little sad, he really wanted to keep one as a pet, but he did good and let them go in the garden.
we told Braxton that whenever we see a lizard scurrying in the garden
Well another School year has begun here in our home & this year I even got a picture of Brian headed off to his first day of Seminary. All went well the kids love their new teachers and even Brian said it wasn't a bad first day.
And here are the kids bored to death because they just had to get out to the Bus that wasn't even coming for 15 more minutes.
1st I have to put a picture of our awesome corn that we grew. Yes, we got a whole 10 ears of corn and then by the time we got home it was all done for the year.
now on to are fun trip. It started out with 3 straight days in the car driving from home to Vanderhoof Canada ( only about 2300 miles) sitting in a car with only a DS and pillows.
In Canada we got to go horse back riding which Megan decided is the most awesome thing ever. We also spent 2 days at a beautiful lake where Brain spoke at a youth conference and we got to play in the water and do a little fishing.
After the Youth Conference we headed down to Washington and spent the 4th of July with Vicki's family. We had lots of fun playing at the Beach in 50 degree weather (Burrr), shooting off fireworks, and eating lots of CRAB.
Then it was back to Idaho where uncle Blake taught us how to have fun in a canal
After we were all canal jumpping experts we headed to Utah, but I have run out of room and time so I will blog that part of the trip later.
Today I am really missing my family as they gather together to lay to rest my little sisters stillborn baby Jeferey Haven Auble.
Last week they discovered during an ultrasound that he had anencephaly, which is a disease that affects the formation of the Brain. It has been a hard couple of days for them and today they are having a memorial service for him at the Brigham City cemetery. I really wish I could be there, it is at times like this that living 16 hours away is the hardest.
They have been truly blessed with many tender mercies from Heavenly Father that have helped them along the way. I miss you all and send my prayers and blessing.
