On Saturday we went to pick huckleberries. We must really like them, it was rainy and cold and we went anyway. My friend Jody and her girls came with us. It hailed, and rained, and was so very cold! But we powered through and ended up with quite a few huckleberries.

While we were picking, with our numb fingers, my Bug started yelling that she was stuck. What kind of a parent would I be if I didn't take a few pictures of her predicament before I rescued her?

After we came home and warmed ourselves up, we rewarded ourselves with dinner of huckleberry pancakes, bacon and sausage, and eggs.  We all decided that our very blustery day was worth it once we tasted those delicious berries!

First Day of School 2014

School started. We took pictures. Here they are.
Hannah~12th Grade

Lyra~7th grade

Pyper~4th grade

Seth~9th grade

It was actually a pretty big day for Seth. He's saved all the money he earned this summer and bought a car. It's a 1983 Camaro. David and I went and picked it up today while he was at school. He didn't know we had gotten it for him,so he was pretty excited and surprised when he saw it on the trailer. It'll be a great project for him to work on while he gets his license.  He's actually spent every day after school out working on it, and even bought his own tools!

Up, up,and away

While we were in St. George for the fair, we got to go on a helicopter ride. It was short, but very fun and pretty!  I didn't get great pictures, it was much prettier in person!

Pyper and I took a selfie.

Amy was busy taking pictures of her own.

Silly boys!

I don't know why I found this so funny, but these two boys are pretty silly when they get together!  Pyper wanted to teeter totter on this little plane, and they decided to join her. Then they had a little "flight" of their own. It was funniest watching them try to get their long legs OUT once they were finished!

Puppy child

It was pretty slow at the fair in Filer, and the face painting booth needed a a volunteer to get their face painted and then run around and play for advertising. Pyper volunteered.

SV Senior Ball

It's been a fun couple of weekends for Hannah. She went to the SV Senior Ball last night.  Her friends set her up on a blind date, his name was Nikhil. Their dance was a masquerade, and we found a fabulous dress.  It was a bit over the top, but perfect for a masquerade!  

David and I decorated the little gazebo in the park and I made them a fondue dinner. Wouldn't you know it, I realized I didn't take a picture as we were taking everything down.  But Pyper said it "looked fancy like a wedding place", so I guess it must have been OK!

I DID, however, get a picture of Hannah and her date!
It was starting to storm, and we were trying to get them out of there (since dinner was outside) before it got too cold, so I just snapped the one picture.

Today after church, we took these...

She even had sparkly gold slippers!

MC Senior Prom

My Hannah has a friend, Megan, from Cosmetology who goes to Mountain Crest.  It was their Senior Prom on Saturday night.  Megan wanted to go, and wanted Hannah to come with her. So Hannah asked our good friends' son, Micheal if he'd go with her. He may have a weensy bit of a crush on Hannah,so of course he said yes!  They looked pretty great, and had a fantastic time!

The carnival was set up for Health days, so Hannah and Micheal stopped off so that David could see them before they left.  They took a ride on the Scrambler. It had been rainy all day and it was SO cold!

 She had a hard time getting all of her dress in!

 Then Michael sat on it! She's telling him to scoot over.


 And they're off...

We took a few pictures before they left.

These next three are my favorites. She got a phone call from Megan just as we were finishing up.  We had a little fun while Micheal was waiting for her to finish.

A princess and her Prince Charming?

She's gorgeous, I'm a lucky mama!
