Trunk or Treat!

Our trunk or treat night at our church was last night. For those of you who are not familiar with trunk or treat, everyone does trick or treat around the parking lot. You hand out candy from your trunk. Our neighbors are BYU fans and decided to go as Deranged Ute Fans. I just had to get pics because we are such Ute fans!

Here is my neighbor doing the Ute sign. She doesn't look too bad, we'll let her live!

Here is her husband. As you can see, he has toilet paper hanging from his bum and stuck to his shoe! He also has a sign on his back that says "Kick me, I'm a Ute fan!"

This is the end all pose. Terry saw this one and said, "That does it, this means war. We're getting a Ute flag!"


Here's our trunk. We had haunted house music going and everything. When it got dark, it looked better because the jack o' lanterns were lit. We had a great time!

Finally.....the pumpkins!


We did our pumpkins last Saturday, but I have been trying to get Tim to let me take his picture with the pumpkin since then. I finally threatened to not take him trick or treating (I'm such a good mom) if he didn't let me take his picture. I took one (I should have posted that one too) and he was all sour puss faced. So I told him I was going to take one more. Terry snuck up behind me and I don't know what he did (I don't want to know) but he got Tim to laugh. Bingo!

Climbing Higher


Topher received his first award at school today. It is called the Climbing Higher Award. Every month the teachers choose one student from each of their classes. Each student is chosen for a particular deed or achievement. Topher won this month because he follows the rules very well. His teacher, Miss Bennett, thinks he is the best. Congratulations Topher!

The Dunes Part II

When we went to the Dunes this weekend, we didn't know we would be traveling with celebrities! We found:



Lil John Turner



Lil John Morley


Lil John Koehler


and Lil John Casper!

The Dunes


We took our last camping trip of the season to Little Sahara this last weekend. Apparently everyone else in Utah did too because there were more people there than I have ever seen. It was gorgeous weather and we really enjoyed ourselves. Here are Terry and Topher looking "smooth"






Here is Tim on the quad. He is almost ready to start riding it by himself, but lacks the self confidence!














Here is Brendon trying to be sly and sneak up on me!





















Here I am sitting in the sun enjoying my rest. It was awesome!
















Here are Bren and Toph kicking it by the fire. Daniel Boone lives!

The Three Stooges


I am puppy sitting one of my "grandkids" this week. His name is Tiger and he is my dad's dog. He is the youngest of the two litters and is so cute (but then again so are all of my "grandkids"). Anyway, I was getting the kids ready for school this morning and the three of them were sitting on the top stair right next to each other. It was so damn cute I had to take a picture. Don't mind poor Gizmo on the left. He really is a Shih-Tzu, not a sheep dog. I am a bad mom and haven't had a chance to get him groomed!

Crazy Hair Day


It was crazy hair day at school. Topher was excited and chose to make his hair into a mohawk. Tim is always gung ho, until the day comes and then he is afraid of looking stupid. I finally talked him into doing his hair crazy. He did it himself, but he is mad here because I made him let me take his picture!
