But on the brighter side, I just made my first pie for the fall time of year, and I got to exercise and dance with my friends, and Chantelle stopped by (and got her job back), and we had Posole with the Haslers, and got to see the Bushmans who came back for a visit. Now some pictures from our week:
Somebody being silly.
Elements Weapons Dallas makes to have wars at home. Starting at the top row, left to right, Shield, Earth, Earth, Fire, Air, Water, Everything, (2nd Row): Lightning, Metal, Ice, Fire. Leia usually gets the Water Trident, and she uses it whenever Dallas is getting a drink. Being the good brother he is, Dallas obliges by pouring his cup of water over his head so she thinks her Water Trident really works. It's pretty hilarious. I love his creativity.
Scout demonstration at the church. Just thought it was neat since I'm in scouts now.
The day Charles found my lipstick. He was so proud.
These pictures of my two fruit trees didn't turn out, but we've had lots of deer in our yard and they've eaten the leaves so there's only a cap of leaves left at the tops of the trees. One morning Dallas was out feeding the chickens and out of the corner of his eye he saw a deer really close to him start to bound away. Scared him to death.
Our chickens are molting and losing lots of feathers right when the weather is starting to go below zero!
Dallas' favorite blanket from Grandma.
We made candles and it was pretty fun. They didn't turn out all smooth and nice, but they work!
Then Evan made awards for everyone. Below is Charles, since he dipped his wick in only once. They were all funny. Leia's was for best carrot candle, mine was best candle helper. I think he gets this from scouts where they all get awards after they race cars or boats.
Leia and her baby she named "Rosalina". This was on our trip. She was often concerned about Rosalina who got very upset at times.
Evan got his cast off the day before we left for California. He took the wrappings he used and gave Charles two broken arms. But mostly I posted this 'cause Charlie's face cracks me up.
