New Friends are silver,
Old Friends are gold.

I have had a golden month!!! It has been so much fun to see all my old friends!!! First Mrs. Rothwell came. She teaches with my mom and I use to baby-sit for her. And we had many late night talks out in her car when she would drop me back off at home. She never failed to encourage me and was someone I knew I could always talk to. She was here visiting her daughter (who was my "baby") and came to see me for a while. (Kellyn is now a sophmore in college. How time flies!!!)
Then I had an old roommate from Provo stop by with her family. She is married and has two little boys. Emily and I were living together when I met Doug. So she is an old friend of his, too. The girls had fun with her little boys. They were also in town visiting family and stopped by for a few hours on Sat. for a nice visit.
And just last night I had a friend from my Logan days come by with her family for the night. They were here just to see me!!! Marianne is the first friend I made that I hadn't grown up with or knew all my life. We were on the institute councle together and have written to each other off and on since. It was really fun to see them as I have never met her husband or saw her new baby boy. He is so cute and a red-head to boot! It was great to catch up with her and to see how happy she is!!!
It has been such a great month!! Who will be next?? How about you??? We have room and you are always welcome!!!

These are my friend Marianne and her hubby and their little boy Hunter. Isn't he so cute!! And a red-head to boot.

Quiet is not good!

This afternoon I was busy working away, emailing and such to organize Amber's kindergarten class Halloween party, and told Clara that if she went upstairs and watched a movie I would bring her up a treat as soon as I was done. So she went upstairs and was all quiet while I was working. As soon as I was done I got a treat and took it up to her, I did promise, after all. Well, when I got upstairs she wasn't on the computer or watching a movie. When I found her she was in her room with her back to me and when I asked her what she was doing she said "nothing" and hid her hands behind her back, (which was toward me) (funny, I know), and I saw she had a pair of scissors in her hand. I went over there, trying not to yell and scream, and took the scissors and saw bits of blue fabric all over. She had cut up a little doll dress while it was on the doll. Then as we were cleaning it up I found blond hair all over. She had cut the sides of her hair so she could "see". UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I then took her downstairs and trimmed the rest of her hair so it was even. Granted it wasn't as bad as when Amber cut her's, but still, I wanted to cry. I took a good 5 inches off. The whole time Clara was saying that she wanted short hair, like Amber's, but then as I was finishing up and making sure it was even she started saying, "okay mom, you can stop now, it is short enough. I am done, mom, quit cutting." It was a little funny. I will post pictures soon, when I get over it all.

For family home evening last night we went out the the Linder Farms pumpkin patch.
The weather was perfect and we suggest to anyone close enough they should go. They have a great little petting zoo. ( with camels, zebras, goats, sheep, bulls, ponys, and a couple of free range geese that try to eat everything.) The girls had fun with that. They drive you out around the pumpkin patch to different stops and you can walk around until you find the "perfect" one. They also have lots of strange gourds. (notice the warty one with Sara and Clara) (no we didn't get that one, but I did get one that was a bit smaller and warty) We road back to parking lot on a trailer with hay on it. Then the girls got to run around a hay maze. You can tell how fast they were moving. I also got a really cute shot of the girls with a scarecrow but I am still figuring out my camera and it is blurry, darn it! It was so much fun!! We have done this for the past 4 years and enjoyed it every time. There is also a corn maze and jump houses and food to buy, but we only bought the pumpkins and did all the free stuff. Cheep, I know, but we still had fun and that is what counts.

playing tag

My sister tagged me so now I have to tell everyone 7 things about me they don't know. Let me think,

1. I always wanted to be an architect.

2. I love to watch cartoons!! (not the animi ones like pokemon)

3. I dream of running away from everything, but then I also take my family with me, so is that really running away???

4.I really like being the center of attention, the good kind, like at a party or something like that.

5. I love that my girls love my sewing and that they tell everyone that they do!!!!

6. I like shopping, not so much buying but I could go and look all day. (sorry Doug)

7. I really share too much because I can't think of anything else.

I tag Amy, Becci, Warren, Susy, Amy M., Kristin (because she writes the blog), and Julie.
