Halloween Parade and Costumes 2010

Hunter has been planning to be the mad scientist for a few months now. He started building a time machine to go with his costume but it had a lot of parts and was a little to much to take to school. I was able to talk him into just carrying around a beaker full of potion.

Braydon had no idea what he should be until a couple of days ago. I am so glad that he choose something so easy. He makes a pretty cute little robber.

Since we have a band competition on the 30th I didn't want to worry about doing something big for the girls for Halloween. Sidney will be on the bus with the band, and Alex will be with Eric and I. So that is where Alex came up with wearing her PJ's and Sidney went as a 60's girl but she had friends ask why she didn't dress up since she dresses like that a lot of times.

Crazy Wind

Sunday night there was a crazy storm that came through PG. We ended up loosing a bunch of limbs from 3 of our trees. It took all of Monday to clean up all of the limbs and leaves that were blown all over the street from our trees. It took the next two days to put our fence and gate back together. It was crazy. We had several people in our ward have their trampolines take flight too. My Cousin ended up with the neighbors tramp in their tree about 30 feet up. Crazy!!

Fall 2010

Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the crisp smell of the air. The cooling of the night. Wearing sweaters, drinking hot chocolate, warm fires. I love the colors of autumn as well. Every year since Sidney was little I have always taken pictures of the kids with the fall leaves in my moms backyard. This year is no different. The only thing I didn't like about these pictures are, they show how grown up the kids are all becoming.

Marching Band

Sidney has been a natural since day 1 with her trumpet. This year she is participating with the High School Band. I am so proud of her and all of her hard work.
