I went to Blanding back at the beginning of October. Rob had a deer tag down there and was there hunting so I took the kids for the weekend to visit Grandma and Grandpa. One day we went up and over the Blue (Abajo) Mountain and we came across this tree. I remember when Ashley and I carved our names in the tree...or I should say many trees. We used to drive over the mountain all the time growing up. We spent a lot of time that summer (1996) driving all over the mountains. I have the best memories of growing up. It was crazy to come across that. We were making memories...and they came flooding back when I saw this!

This year for halloween all the kids wanted to be things they had been in previous years so I was happy to pull out the box of costumes and be done with figuring out what to do. The pictures of the kids are at their halloween parades at school. Ryder was Spiderman, Ranger was Batman, and Robby was Superman. Railey was a witch. They kids wanted me to dress up so I pulled out a wig we had and painted my face. People always say clowns are scary...and yes, I'm a little scared of clowns after seeing the pictures of myself.
We moved back to Oak City from Vernal at the end of August. I haven't gotten around to blogging for a while. This is the house we lived in for 10 months while we were there. I was happy to say goodbye to it. It was hard to live so close to neighbors and not have a big yard for the kids. We had some nice neighbors and a great ward. It was nice to have things close for shopping and school and things like that but we are very happy to be back in Oak City. The kids are very happy to have our yard back and to be back by all their friends. Now that we are all settled, it kind of feels like it was all a dream.
I've always known my kids were a bunch of wild Indians. This is what you get when you leave them alone for a few minutes. Railey decided to paint the boys faces. They thought it was a great idea. They were so excited to come and show me what Railey did. Since they were already painted I just let them run around all day like this. They played the part well. I'm sure the neighbors were very appreciative of all the noise. But they had fun. And I'm sure they will never forget it.
