Bewitching October

Went to visit my Gparents on Conference Sunday between sessions. They live in Grantsville(about an hour west). I love visiting my Gparents. I dont get out there as much as I would like, Kirk and kids even less. Need to change that. These are my moms parents. They were high school sweethearts. Were married for 21 years. Got divorced when my parents married. Were divorced for 25years, then a year(I think) after my mom died, they remarried. Pretty crazy! I never knew my Grandpa growing up. Always been super close to my Gma. Shes so funny, cute and small. And fietsy! Dont let her size fool you!

They have an amazing orchard/garden in their backyard
So many fruit trees, so we went to work doin some pickin. Good times! Peach trees were extra full this season. Kids first time picking fruit trees.

AT is more than happy letting the ladies do all the work. Yah.....that didnt last long
Love my girls
Got a great surprise when we got Uncle Keith was there! Yay! Had not seen him since forever! Hes the baby. 7 years younger than my mom. Love my Gmas gardening hat. Cant garden without it.
R IS wearing shorts...

Loves picking peaches!!
AT had some sort of reaction to something while picking. His poor neck got all red and buffy and itchy. Still not sure what it was. Just eventually went away. Weird
On our way home, we stopped to see the Saltair. In Kirks whole almost 40 years of life living in Utah, he had never been. Its right off the Great Salt Lake. Some parts of the GSL are so pretty, others....not so much.

I saw Evanesence(sp?) in concert here a few years ago.

Apparently, this was a pretty happenin place in its day.
Moving on up....

AT and IB earned their scouting Arrow of Light award. Its a pretty big deal in the scouting world. They are officially no longer Scouts. They are with the older boys now as Boy Scouts. Arrow of Light visual aid
Getting a few awards he earned as a Webelo.

Ow! Ha....thats what I said as he was pinning me. Im funny!

Tis the season

My friend Mel arranged a fun little witches night out. Minus the 2 in the back. Mel made them sit there because they refused to dress up. Ha! It was fun! You are never too old to get dressed a witch...for no reason, other than its October and Halloween. When in Rome....
Me and Cathie. She is the Stake YWs pres I served with. She is fabulous!!
Mel and Heather. Heather doesnt really know how to be a witch. She is green though...
My other car is Were all out of brooms.
Really just a one seater....

Cause this is Thriller!

Tracy invited me and my girls(just one, wish all 3) to go see Thriller! We were so excited! Saw it last year and loved it! ES was the lucky one who got to go this year. Had to warn her that there were scary zombies walking around, but that they were just people dressed up. She was very brave! As always, the show was great! Wish I could dance like that.

We went and had yummy pizza at The Pie by the theatre. Oh good!

Could not get ES to relax her eyes(so pretty) a bit or Ry to open hers.

Oh....there ya go. Mission accomplished....sort of....
Before the show, while everyones showing up, they have some of the dancers dressed up and walking around scaring people. And...they do a really good job. You can hear people screaming and crying. Last year I wasnt warned about the zombies and while I was waiting for my friend, i felt and heard breathing next to me. Turned and found a zombie had snuck up on me. Yah, I was one of the people you heard screaming then. I think I even startled the zombie a little. ha!

ES was okay to get a pic taken as long as I was in between her and the zombie. I think her "no, Im not scared" brave face is great! (that goes for both of us)

ES DID NOT want to get close to this guy. After the pic, she was outta there!

Before the show. Safe and sound in our seats. Cant get enough of this girls eyes!
Had to have a Jason mask. ES totally knew who Jason was. No idea how she knows that. I am really not a fan of masks at all. I think it stems from being allowed to watch scary movies where people in masks run around killing people at a very young(too young) age. Thats just silly though. Prob not that ;)
Tracy acting like shes not scared. Thats always when they get you!
Dont mess....

Jason vs.....yard work?

AT was all over this mask after ES brought it home. Decided to wear it while he mowed the lawn. Hilarious! Asked him after how it was mowing with a mask on, he said it was HOT! His face was all red and sweaty. Jason needs to adjust his Ipod. Gotta have the tunes while you mow.
AT decided to get creative one day...
Pretty cool.
Just because....

Kirk came home one day with a rose for me just to say thank you. So sweet and thoughtful he is.
Lucky #7!

Thank heaven for little girls that turn seven!!! Cannot believe my baby is 7! Every time we've had a 7 year old, we've had a 5 or 3 or 1 year old also. Its different having your youngest get older and no one younger to take care of. Different and a little sad. We love this girl soooooo much! She is fun and silly and CRAZY and smart and funny and independent and sweet and Beautiful! I know Heavenly Father has a sense of humor because he sent us her. So different from our other 3. Shes a mini me. Yay!

Our 7 year old. She is wearing shorts , no worries
These sat there and taunted her ALL day. Drove her crazy! Hehe! Cant open them til daddy gets home.
Her choice of where to eat.....Noodles and Co. We love this place!
As far as I know< kirk is not high or drunk or anything. He looks likes hes on something though. Ha!
Rs movie of choice was Captain America! Great movie! Birthday girl is missing. With her daddy of course.
She got a dip-n-dots maker for her bday. We had fun the next day making some. It worked really well and they taste good!

Has his own cheering squad. Yay for sisters!!!
