Then imagine I had a camera on Halloween and Ethan dressed as a Ranger (some book character), Brock was Percy Jackson, Amelia was an Egyptian princess, Hayden was Ariel, Ruth was "Po- Punzel" (Rapunzel). They looked great and got LOTS of candy.
I did get a camera a few weeks ago and I will share a few of the things that have happened since
We decorated our tree
Ruth loved to catch the dog and read her Christmas books
I sewed new stockings for our family. I have wanted to do this for years! Thanks to my AMAZING sister in law I finally did it!!! (I am loving having her here I am getting to do all kinds of fun projects!!!)
I also added our 5 new hands to our tree skirt for the year! We started the second row!!!
Amelia sang at the capital with the school choir
We also had a dance recital but I have no pictures because someone hid my camera and I didn't have time to look for it. But the girls did a very good job and had rainbow colored tutus and danced to all music from Madagascar movies.
Uncle Sunny was a wise man at the stake nativity, Ethan and Brigham was a Shepard, and Johnnie was and angel.
Ruth was in awe of the baby "Jesus" He (she) was a real baby and it was so beautiful.
After the live nativity we drove to see the Christmas lights in Keizer. We loved that!
To top things off a truck backed into my van while it was parked, then 3 days latter it was snowy and I slid through a stop sign and was hit by and Expedition.... Our van was not "totalled" but to us we took it as a sign that we should be done. We got our insurance money out of it, and sold it after it had been listed on Craigslist for less then and hour!! (NOT JOKING!) So we just bought a newer van but I don't have pictures because we just brought it home and it is dark. So maybe I will post again soon. Not that anyone reads this anyway but for my future reading, or remembering...
I am sure there were many other big things that happened but since there are no pictures I can't remember them now. Maybe I will remember them later and post.
